Jammerheads are 10-12' long, sleek monstrosities with broad heads, feathered wings, and gaping maws.  They never sleep, and prowl the skyways in a never-ending quest for living prey.

Flailing filaments line a jammerhead's backside.  These tendrils continually generate an EMP field that disables all technological systems—computers, Advanced melee weapons and firearms, the majority of Ancient artifacts, powered armors, robots, etc.—within a 25' radius.  Such devices reactivate in 1d12 turns after leaving the area of effect.  Even Android PCs are susceptible; they must make a Saving Throw Versus Stun at a -3 penalty or fall "unconscious" with the same reactivation period as above.

Jammerheads are never surprised.

  1. I bet the hammerhead makes him more aerodynamic.

  2. I normally don't fudge random wilderness encounters, but it would just be wrong not to let the players encounter this delightful specimen of mutant fauna...right? >:)

  3. @Mr. Trey: But of course. (And the models with spoilers are even more so!)

    @Mr. C.T.: Tormenting your players with one of my beasties is the greatest compliment I can ask for!
