The Anthrophage

Yes, I know it should more properly be Anthropophage, but when I hear that I think of an ogre or something. Anyway, here's a monster for Uz.


The anthrophage is a strange creature found near certain alien wrecks in the Wastes of Rust.  While comparatively easy to destroy, their ability to reproduce by infecting victims means they are widely feared by the inhabitants of Uz - or at least those who travel into the wastes. They appear as a large dodecahedron atop a shining screw with spindly legs.  Despite their glittering appearance, all of their body parts are organic.

Anthrophage
AC 7 [12], HD 1, Attk 1x (drill special) THAC0 18 [+1] MV 90’ (30’) SV D10 W11 P12 B 13 S14 (4), AL Neutral, XP 13 NA 1d4 (2d6) TT Nil
  • Virus: The drill of an anthrophage injects the victim with a strange substance. They must make a save vs death or explode into a number of anthrophage equal to their HD in 1d3 rounds.
  • Derived: Anthrophage will not and cannot attack nonhuman entities.  Priests, regardless of mutation level, count as human for the purposes of this attack.
  • Short Lifespan: Anthrophagi can only live for 1d6 weeks.

  1. Is there a way to revert the "Virus" after a failed save? Say drink a potion, receive healing, or similar? Or at that point the PC is basically a ticking bomb?

    1. A good question! I think a cure disease spell, provided by a priest of Apollo from far Ilion, may be the only solution.

I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR.
