Special Attacks

Attach: The stirge loses its Dexterity bonus to AC and has an AC of 12, but holds on with great tenacity and inserts its proboscis into the grappled target’s flesh. A stirge has a +8 bonus to maintain its grapple on a foe once it is attached.

Blood Drain: A stirge drains blood at the end of its turn if it is attached to a foe, inflicting 1 point of Constitution damage. Once a stirge has dealt 4 points of Constitution damage, it detaches and flies off to digest the meal.

A successful hit (for 1-3 points of damage) means that it has attached itself to the victim, sucking for 1-3 points of damage per round until dead. A flying stirge gains a bonus of +2 on its first Hit Roll against any one opponent due to its speedy diving attack.
