Ferocious arthropods that can be encountered in Sir-Tech Software's 1988 Wizardry V: Heart of The Maelstrom Apple II/Commodore 64 roleplaying video game (it was also later ported to various other computer platforms and home consoles, including the Super Nintendo Entertainment System/Super Famicom in 1994, and it is also found on some of the Wizardry compilation packs). While similar in appearance, Lady Stingers are not true scorpions (the game already has distinct Giant Scorpion creatures that fill that role).
When compared to the game's monster population as a whole, Lady Stingers are a minor threat. They can be slain relatively easily, even by a party of Level 1 adventurers, and are only found on the first floor of the game's dungeon. A Lady Stinger's barbed tail looks quite intimidating, but the creature is not poisonous (or, if it does possess a toxin, it has a negligible effect on humans and demihumans). The tail can, however, deliver nasty, and, on rare occasions, fatal, puncture wounds--particularly if it pierces a vital area. While said appendage is the monster's primary offensive weapon, a Lady Stinger can also bite and rake with its' claws.
