Eats Paper: A giant silverfish can consume one scroll or one page of a spell book per round. This includes things like treasure maps or other valuable documents but the creature will prefer magical texts.
Spells: When a Giant Silverfish consumes a magic scroll, it makes a Saving Throw. If successful the beast can instinctively cast that spell once as if it were able to read the scroll. It can do this for either magic-user or cleric scrolls. Any Giant Silverfish encountered will already have consumed 1d6 spells from levels 1 to 4. determined randomly.

    Love it! If this is OGL mind if I add it to the Swords & Wizardry SRD?

    No problem , John. I posted it over on the Swords & Wizardry community on G+ too. Since I don’t normally worry about XP individual XP awards I don’t usually put them on blog posts. Gimme a bit of time to calculate that.
