A rust monster was an aberration that corroded and ate metal.[2]

Physical descriptionEdit

A rust monster was the size of a small pony, with four insectlike legs and a squat, humped body. Its hide was thick and lumpy and was yellowish tan on the belly and rust-red on the back. Its tail ended in what looked like a double ended paddle. Two long antennae come out of its head, one under each eye.[2]


A rust monster had a weak bite and did not normally attack with it.[2] They attacked anyone who had metal, however, with their antennae. The touch of an antenna could turn even magical metal items into rust.[2]


Rust monsters ate the rust of freshly rusted metal objects.[2]


A rust monster could smell metal from ninety feet away. They always went for the biggest source of metal first, and preferred ferrous metals over precious ones.[2]
