Two Monster Tuesday


Vivisector
Vivisectors are members of a phylum of alien automata known as physickers. They are believed to have been created by a now extinct race for whom the constructs performed medical functions. Sometime in the ages since, they’re programming was corrupted, and they began stripping every world their swarm arrives at of life. The model called vivisectors, or scalpel-bugs, look something like a cross between a mantis and a firefly sculpted in brass, and about the size of a mouse. Their forelegs are razor-sharp surgical blades which they put to clinically precise, and deadly, purpose. Vivisectors will generally be encounter in a swarm.

Dungeon Chicken!
Amidst all the usual junk mail yesterday, I was suprised and pleased to received a The Hungry Bulette postcard from blogging compatriot, ze bulette.  It contained the stats for the dread dungeon chicken.  I got a laugh out of it, and I also have an old school monster card.  Thanks Bulette!

That vivisector swarm would be a bit of a handful.

Meowlissa said...

A handful indeed.

Thanks for rehashing my nightmares :P

Trey said...

Indeed. And sorry about that. ;)

Those things could really take apart a dungeon chicken! Are there similar cooking physikers? Great stuff as usual - glad you liked the card. ;)

great post. following you

Trey said...

@ze bulette - Good question! I hadn't even thought about the gastronomic symmetry of this post. ;)

@Lemmiwinks - Thanks. Glad you liked it.

Ouch. As someone who only recently went through emergency surgery, I can only say thank you. Preying Mantises are wicked monsters and you just made them a hundred times more frightening. Ze Bulette's idea there about some possible gourmand-style sub-races might be fun to see developed...

Trey said...

I know what you mean about preying mantises. This is my second mantis-inspired monster.

Love the mantis-monster. I have one in the works myself....

Confirmation word: flectigr

A miniaturizing big cat? Hmmm....

Trey said...

The more mantids the merrier, I think. ;)
