Lilac Towers and new Creature of the Apocalypse 13: Talontessa

 Come Experience Lilac Towers, it’s to die for….
Exposed by a recent landslide, the 11th floor entrance into the once luxurious Lilac Towers is now visible. The PC adventurers find the pathway up to the mysterious ruins while tracking hostile skullock and moaners.
            Why would two mutant species who normally hate each other work together? Who rules them? What horrors, and loot, will be found in the buried hotel? Only a closer inspection will reveal the truth.

Lilac Towers is our 5th One Day Dig and was written by Danny Seedhouse. These short, single session adventures are crafted to showcase a bit of The Mutant Epoch setting and flavor, introduce some creatures and relics, as well as offer an example of how the Outland System game mechanic works. While previous ODDs were designed for first rank characters, this one’s a bit more challenging and PCs should at least be of 2nd rank.
            This is a Pay What You Want product. Broke? No worries, grab it for free, or check it out first and pay later, or if you like what you see now, please feel free to throw a buck or two in the tip jar, and leave a review someplace. Danny and I sure would appreciate it!

Contained in this 15 page pay what you want product are 8 maps, 14 illustrations and two creature variants including Moaner Immortals and Tuskers.

Also released recently, and not with out some controversy, ahem, was the Talontessa, a new free creature....

The cruel, beautiful and vain race of talontessa… a deadly, feminine touch to the post-apocalyptic wastes

Depending on the region, these all-female creatures are known by different names, including Junk Jezebels, Sickle-Sues, Hook Hussies, Blood Brides, Hook Girrrls and Claw Maidens. 
            They are the mortal enemies of skullocks, ruthless to slavers, prone to robbing travelers and always on the look out for a handsome man to either seduce or ensnare. Tribal, petty and obsessed with their looks and social status in their sisterhood, the talontessa are unpredictable and should only be approached with caution. Yet, regardless of their odd ways, passions, use of poison, traps and moody natures, they can make for great allies and are as likely to help excavators as hinder them.  Unlike any other Creature of the Apocalypse in this line, loners of this race can also be utilized as player characters and this PDF comes with rules for generating such lithe, multi-limbed adventurers.
            This is the 13th, and temporarily the final, free creature of the apocalypse. This special addition is 11 pages long and includes a d20 mutation list, disposition towards travelers table, d100 loot table, as well as rules for creating player character talontessa and a player handout art only sheet. We have more COTA creatures in the works but they will be part of a ‘for purchase’ sourcebook which includes all the previous beasts plus 6 never before seen mutant freaks. Stay tuned for that!

Although crafted for The Mutant Epoch role-playing game, using the Outland System Game Mechanic, a GM can easily modify the stats for the talontessa and use these feisty, velociraptor clawed hunters with another post-apocalyptic game system.
