Warriors of the Red Planet Preview - Monsters!
Wha...two WotRP previews in one week!?
Here's some monsters to terrorize your valiant red warriors and courageous Earthmen with:
Atk Bite (d6+1)
Vranx are translucent, insectoid predators with razor-sharp mandibles. It is rumored that their green, glowing, many-faceted eyes can see into multiple dimensions. They can teleport short distances without error and attack, often from behind an opponent for +2 to-hit, all in one action.
Atk Pseudopod (2d4)
Special Paralysis, immune to electricity and cold
Argoroi are non-sentient, transparent, amoeba-like creatures created by the scientists of a lost city to serve as guardians. Long ago, they turned on and destroyed their masters, and have since multiplied and greatly expanded their hunting territories. Their bodies are highly acidic and they exude a paralytic poison, immobilizing victims who fail their saves for 1d6 turns.
Atk 2 claws (d6) or longspear (d8)
Half-man, half-beast, the gray-hided Mantaurs are wild, tribal predators that brook no trespassers in their territory. They wear broad, leather sheaths containing a dozen or so longspears they can weild in melee or expertly throw as needed. They possess a sort of savage honor, however, and will sometimes accept barter or friendly combat between appointed champions.
Atk Bite (1hp)
Special Paralytic Poison (+4 to save)
These fleshy, purple-skinned swarms of predators run about surprisingly quickly on their seventy-seven legs. Their toothy bite injects a mild paralytic poison (save at +4 or be immobilized for 2-5 rounds) as they like their prey living while they feast. There is also a giant version of this horror!

Excellent preview! I'm going to be desperately tempted to have my Swords and Wizardry party stumble into the midst of an alien presence within their dungeon. Thanks for the inspiration, though I think I'm going to be holding out for the entirety of the Red Planet!ReplyDelete
I'm liking the sci-fi going on around here lately! You've motivated me to dig out my Burroughs books.ReplyDelete
mantaur has only one AC listed
Fixed, thanks Clovis!ReplyDelete
Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.comReplyDelete
