Ghoma are huge crustaceans with shells that povide them a Penetration Resistance of 2. A gohma's only vulnerabe spot is its large eye, which it usually keeps closed. During combat, it will open its eye for 3 turns about once every 7 turns (the manager secretly rolls 3 dice every time it closes its eyes to determine how long they will stay shut) to see where its victims are. The rest of the time it relies on its accute hearing. When it's eye is open, to successfully attack it, a character must attack with a spear or some other piercing weapon, as if it were attacking a creature with a speed of 6, since it is such a small target.
Gohmas move slowly, and are not good fighters, but every 3 turns they can breathe fireballs which attack at 12 with a Penetration Factor of 3 and which inflict 2 points of damage.

Gohma have relatives that live on the island of Hyron, inhabiting plains, deserts, and caves. These are almost identical in appearence, but can jump like a tektite. They can jump up to fifteen feet high, and fifteen feet laterally, and move at Speed 7, Attack 14. These keep their eyes open almost all the time, since they do actively hunt, and their eyes can be attacked as a creature with a speed of 12.
