When giant ants are encountered it is 90% likely that they will simply be workers.

The warrior ant has 3 HD, does 2-8 HP of damage with its mandibles, and if it hits with them it will also attempt to sting for 3-12 points of damage.
If a sting hits, a saving throw versus poison must be made; if successful the victim takes only 1-4 hit points of damage.


LAIR

If found in their lair (nest) there will be double the number rolled plus 1 warrior ant for every 5 workers.
<[2d% = x = # of workers]>
<[x/5 = # of warriors]>

ROOM 2: THE EGG CHAMBER
The egg chamber will be guarded by 5-50 workers and 5 warriors.
Giant ant eggs have no normal market value.

ROOM 1: THE TEMPLE

The QUEEN ant has 10 hit dice <HD>, but she neither moves nor attacks.
If she is killed the other ants will become confused (as if they were under the influence of that spell) for six <6> melee rounds and then leave the nest.
<space>

Treasure held by ants will be found in the chamber of the QUEEN ant.
    TREASURE TYPE: Q (x3), S
