In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the miner is a type of fictional monster.

Publication history[edit]

The miner first appeared in the original Monster Manual II (1983).[1]

The forest trapper (miner) appeared under the "lurker above" entry in second edition in the Monstrous Compendium Volume Two (1989),[2] and reprinted under the "lurker" entry in the Monstrous Manual (1993).[3]


The miner is a variation of the lurker. The miner waits on the floor of forests, waits until prey walks on top of it, and then attacks with two poisonous barbs.
