Interstellar bestiary: Sondaren


Versk swung his rifle around, cracking heads with the butt of his weapon. Blue blood splashed on the ground. X2413 shrugged and stopped firing his autocannon and began doing the same thing. The robot struck one of the blue mewling lizardmen and it suddenly exploded. The robot let out a startled buzz.

I do not recall the fatespinners mentioning this,” the robot lamented, noting several minor repairs it would need to make.

Versk decided not to worry about conserving ammunition after witnessing the azure explosion.

I think that they enjoy leaving some things out!” the human shouted above the din of the blue enemy.

Sondaren:The sondaren are blueish bipedal lizard people, shorter than the average human and quite unfriendly to outsiders. Sondaren are excellent trackers, having an acute sense of smell as well as being able to see in the dark. Beings of lower technological, sondaren use ancient melee weapons and bows only and use no modern equipment. Any sondaren struck on the head with a critical strike (natural 20 to hit) immediately explodes, causing 2d6 damage to all in a 2 meter radius).

    reminds me of the Moon Men from the film “A trip to the Moon” that exploded when you struck them 😉

    These guys are a Referee’s joy and an X-plorer’s nightmare

    The short reply: 😉
    The longer reply: I actually was inspired by mask on the Monsterpalooza segment from Making Monsters on the Travel Channel. Then I recalled “A Trip to the Moon” and was compelled to add in the exploding bit….
