CatBee    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)

"That's old lady Serisia's house... We don't go in there anymore." the children looked forlornly through the iron fence to their lost ball, deep within the overgrown gardens of the massive front yard.
From deep in the foliage, a menacing 'Yowl' sounded, followed by an eerie droning.

This sub is a little bit silly.

Perhaps they were once natural beasts, but natural beasts cannot survive the wastes of Corpsefall. No, this beast is far from natural, and for that, I believe nature is grateful.

The Hellephant    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)
DNA can be a funny thing.  Flip a gene here and the resulting offspring is sterile.  Twist this one around and the kid winds up twice as big as either parent.  And this one?  Lets just say that there‚Äôs a reason why some genetic experimentation is very, very illegal.

Game master tip #1

       By: Aramax

Rather than making a baddy impossible to hit, consider giving it mega-hit points.
Super hard to hit leads to great player frustration. Allowing them to do damage leads to a sense of accomplishment. another variation of this would be to give the bad guy a forcefield that shows damage.You could also give them a mastermind ability that sluffs the damage of to minions who should be easy to kill.Once in a while a super high to hit encounter is ok ,but it should be few and far between.

Your mileage may vary
