The young offspring of our beast hide deep beat the earth but their tunnels never stray far from the parents hunting ground. When the blood is spilled the children burst from the ground, ready to feast upon the mother's quarry.

Clearly our beast wallow in the corpse of its prey, catching carrion and flesh on its hooked barbs and dragging it down it it's subterranean den to feed it's infant brood. Over time the beast becomes covered in rotted gore and caked blood, become a host to all sorts of disease and giving off a noxious odor the both keeps aggressors at bay and aids in attracting a mate.

Techpriest feel free to look over the tables and add stuff/change stuff. There's definitely some contracting things. I think in the future I plan to add some kind of limiter to how many abilities a creature can get, either by a dice roll or some hard limit. I definitely need more back ground and lore tables though. Maybe what the creature evolved from ex. Reptilian, and how old the species is.

>>44962159
The tables look fine to me, but a limiter would be useful unless we're are trying to create a creature like the first one. The age and evolution thing sounds neat though.
