Dark Sun, The Scorched World of Athas
A crawling gauntlet follows the bidding of its host or creator without regard for self-preservation. Like crawling claws, crawling gauntlets attempt to gang up on a single enemy. When in combat with other creatures, crawling gauntlets try to immobilize mobile enemies, allowing their allies to eliminate the threat.
Swarms that seem to be composed of little more than the desiccated remains of dismembered and mummified arms, legs, and hands that drag themselves across the room. These swarms will reach out and latch on to any that come too close, attempting to burrow into bodies and tear them apart.
