Sightless, slimy, and sickening, the greatapes are primate-like, man-sized hermaphrodites that congregate in jungles, swamps, ruined sewers, and cesspits. Their hooting vocalizations carry for miles.
Greatapes attack with bludgeoning "fists" and slurping maws. With a successful bite attack, a greatape latches onto its victim, doing an automatic 1d10 blood-draining damage per round; a feeding specimen can still lash out for melee attacks. Bite victims must make a Saving Throw Versus Poison or risk being flooded with eggs. Greatape infections cause 1d12 damage per week as the host is ravaged from within, and upon death, 1d4 3 HD "tapelings" burst from the corpse. Filter-doses [see p. 125 of the Mutant Future Core Rules] and select tribal remedies clear an infestation.
Due to their rubbery bodies, greatapes take only half damage from blunt weapons, and their slick coatings make them completely immune to fire-based attacks.
Some suggest that greatapes are the next phase of evolution of the prowlasite....
