Spelling bees are enormous insects capable of casting magic spells. Each individual can cast 1d4 magic user spells of either level 1 or 2 once per day. Determine spells randomly. They cast as second level magic-users and have no need for memorization or spell components. The known spells vary day to day.

Spelling bees are not aggressive to men but do not like to be approached. They can sting for 1d6 damage, but prefer to avoid melee if at all possible. Spelling bees are both literate and capable of human speech, though their droning, buzzing method of communication is difficult to understand by human ears.

Spelling bees dislike and will avoid other giant arthropods, especially giant wasps and giant spiders.
