Non-random features

ListFeature
Ability ***Camouflaged*** Attempts to spot suffer a penalty to Perception of two difficulty grades.
Ability ***Earth Sense*** Perfect sense of direction, depth and orientation beneath ground and suffers no penalties to Perception rolls for underground environments.
Ability ***Grappler*** Successful attack = Grapple + damage. Parried attack = Grip vs opponent limb or Pin Weapon on weapon. Uses brawn to resist victim breaking free. (RQ6: pg 312-316)
Ability ***Burrower*** Can tunnel through the specified ground type at its normal Movement rate
Ability ***Dark Sight*** ' see’ normally in any level of limited light, even its complete absence.
Ability ***Constrict*** The first attack against a surprised or helpless target (if it generates a Special Effect) will target the chest or abdomen. No damage is inflicted but the attack automatically establishes a grapple. On the snake’s next turn, it inflicts its Damage Modifier by tightening its coils applying the damage to the Chest or Abdomen area directly: armour does not protect against this constriction damage.
Ability ***Engulfing*** The max size of victim is figured as half the creature’s own SIZ, but may be less than this depending on the creature’s physiology. Engulfed victim suffers at least one damage roll based on the creature’s bite attack before being swallowed – the time spent chewing depends on the creature and how sensitive its innards are. If still alive a swallowed victim will begin to suffocate. Often victim lacks the mobility to move inside the digestive tract or the creature is so large that he will die long before he can cut its way out.
