Carrion Creepers
Carrion Creeper, from Ultima I manual
Only appearance: Ultima I

Dungeon dwellers that feast upon the remains of the dead, carrion creepers greatly resemble overgrown centipedes or millipedes, with large eyes and sharp mandibles. These stealthy arthropods use their many legs to travel swiftly along labyrinth corridors, attacking the unwary from on high. As startling as their appearance can be, they are relatively easy to defeat.

Carrion creepers thankfully disappeared after Mondain's death.

A Carrion Creeper, Ultima I

These loathsome worms inhabit the deeper reaches of most dungeons, where they feed on the corpses of any luckless creatures they encounter. The numerous legs on their segmented bodies are equipped with small barbs that allow them to move quickly on walls and ceilings, as well as along corridors. Carrion Creepers should be avoided at all costs.
