Equally at home on land or in water, the predatory eelwolves are encountered in forests, jungles, and swamps.  Their gurgling, rasping howls echo across the wasteland nightscape.

Eelwolves' agile canine builds, combined with sinuous musculature and sleek, slimy skin, grant the creatures an AC of 4 in melee (while being AC 7 at range).  Their diverse coloration also tends to match their environs, granting them Surprise on 1-4 on 1d6 and +1 to Initiative.  When pursuing prey, and eelwolf can compress and wriggle through an opening one-fourth its size.

Eelwolf hides can be made into leather armor (AC 7) that grants a +1 to DEX and an immunity to electrical-based attacks.

Mutations:  Energy Ray (Electricity), Enhanced Vision (Night), Reflective Epidermis (Electricity)

Mutant Crawl Classics: More Manimal Mayhem!

My Kickstarter'd heap of Mutant Crawl Classics goodies arrived this week, and I'm digging it like crazy.

I'm also starting the homebrew hacking process!

Take the official chart for starting Manimal PCs:

There's key omissions, with no chance for, say, gatoroids or hippoids or kangaroids, and that just won't do!

So here's my tweaked version:

"P" is for "Prongalope"


No. Enc.:  1d6+2 (2d10)
Alignment:  Neutral
Movement:  210' (70')
Armor Class:  5
Hit Dice:  5
Attacks:  2 or 1 (x2 weapon, or 1 gore)
Damage:  by weapon x2, or 1d6
Save:  L5
Morale:  9
Hoard Class:  VII
XP:  1,100

Prongalopes are man-sized, nomadic giraffoids with horns that coruscate with green electricity.  They travel the wastelands in tigh-knit clans, living off the lands and bartering for what they can't scavenge...and if negotiations fail, prongalopes are not above taking what they need..

Fast and frenetic, prongalopes strike twice per round with the same weapon, melee and ranged alike.  Their natural agility gives them a base AC 5, which can be improved by shields and tech.

Prongalopes settle tribal rivalries with elaborate dance contests, and their mutations are ideally suited to this purpose..  Once a year, the beings gather by the thousands to resolve debts, disputes, divorces, and all manners of conflicts via the art of "serving".  Prongalopes will gladly "step to" PCs and "take them to the prairies" in place of combat.

Mutations:  Combat Empathy, Energy Ray (Electricity), Fragrance Development, Increased Balance, Precognition

"Gonzo Crawl Classics"... Meh, That Needs Work

Here's another from the deep cesspit of derelict projects, a Dungeon Crawl Classics-esque background list for 0-level morts.

I have some scribblings for a goofy corresponding adventure.  Maybe make it a zine?  You kids today are into zines, right?

Sample Preview!

And Now To Find Out What This Project REALLY Is!


The Mutant Future Version!


Going forward, I'll post whatever gaming stuff strikes my fancy, meaning I may ease up on the "almost entirely post-apoc" theme.  As I said, I have plenty of half-baked scrawlings, including stuff for Dungeon Crawl Classics, "PCs That Never Were", and further Savage Worlds nonsense over at my other neglected blog.

Sorry it's been so long, and I hope you'll come back around.
