Bayou Shambler (Rank 3)Edit
Deserts and mountains aren’t the only places Pumonca roam. So-called "swamp cats" know the Southern wetlands well. By crooning to the spirits of the bayous and calling upon any favors owed, a Pumonca can call forth a swamp elemental, dripping with plants and ooze, to assist her. While the creature retains its own free will, a Shambler is disposed to be friendly to the cat and hostile toward anyone in her way.
The player spends two points each of Rage and Gnosis to animate the Shambler, and rolls Willpower against difficulty 7. The resulting creature is semi-intelligent at best, smells terrible, and lasts for three turns per success. Suggested Shambler Traits are:
- Attributes: Strength 4, Dexterity 2, Stamina 5, Wits 1
- Abilities: Alertness 1, Brawl 3, Stealth 3
- Health Levels: Two per success, and no penalties apply. Once its Health Levels are gone, the Shambler falls apart.
