3 Kyros: Oh. The most boring one possible.

4 Kyros: Doesn’t mean I can’t judge you for it.

In Dungeons & Dragons, stirges are kind of crosses between bats and mosquitoes. They are a low-level monster typically encountered by beginning groups of adventurers. Although fairly easy to defeat, stirges can cause significant problems for low-level characters because once they attack successfully, they attach to the defending character and continue to suck blood, automatically causing damage each combat round until removed (in contrast to other monsters who need to roll to defeat the defenders' armour every round).
I recall one of the first games I played, and the adventuring party was attacked and almost brought down by a flock of stirges. Some group of mighty warriors we were.
