Pinch allows the user to clutch and hold on to a target making
it difficult to move.  It also allows the scorpion to make more
frequent use of its stinger in combat.

Pinch can not be used against an opponent who is in some way
immune to effects like Strangle, Constrict, Hold, Grapple or 

If the target has attempted no action in a round, he/she/it can
attempt to break out of the pinch through a strength contest by
simply trying to move out of the room.  Failure to do so means no
further actions can be performed until the next round.
