Dragon Wasps are a highly dangerous species of Giant Wasp, in addition to the abilities of normal giant wasps the Dragon Wasp can release a 10' flaming spittle 3 x per day (2d6 damage, Reflex save for half damage). Dragon Wasps are immune to fire, but their nests are not. Their eggs secrete a chemical pheromone that triggers a restraint in the Dragon Wasps which keeps them from accidentally burning up their own nests. Certain native tribes have learned this and coat key structures in their villages with this chemical (it is hard to obtain/produce so only critical dwellings usually have this protection). Dragon Wasps must make a Will Save to overcome the urge to use their flaming spittle when attacking these specially treated native dwellings. Dragon Wasps avoid cold climates and are usually only found in tropical regions.

Oh and these should work nicely for your Mutant Future games too!  : )
