Whether it's for RuneQuest, Magic World, Cydoria, Cthulhu or Future Earth, somebody has got to do write-ups for these crazy creatures:


Some of them, like the falcon/tiger hybrid, we've seen before in comics, fantasy novels, or even Traveller. But others are truly new and bizarre. A few of the smaller monsters wouldn't necessarily be dangerous to player-characters, but they'd make for weird, atmospheric encounters. My favorites are the Mantaraffe and Nightmare #1, both truly scary. ;D

There seems to be a preponderance of pug hybrids. Do they have some superior reproductive strategy that I'm unaware of?

Different game, of course, but you get the idea.

Actually, you could probably see some of these in Glorantha as Chaos hybrids. Ducksnakes are probably kill-on-sight....

Tackling the duck/elephant hybrid might be a tad more difficult ... =O
