Non-random features

ListFeature
Ability ***Resilience*** Max damage after armor from impaling weapons is 1 and from crushing weapons weapon's minimum damage.
Ability ***Asphyxiation*** Target can hold their breath for a seconds x Endurance if prepared, if not then halved in passive or 20% if strenuous activity. After holding: Endurance crit no change. successful 1 Fatigue level. Fail 1d2 Fumble 1d3
Ability ***Area Attack*** Creature or plant of suitable size can sweep or stomp multiple foes, its attack roll being simultaneously applied to everyone within reach of the body part used to make the attack.
Ability ***Resistant to damage of normal weapons*** Reduce the damage dice of weapons by two steps. Magic affects normally.
Ability ***Swimmer*** Automatically succeeds in everyday moving and manoeuvring whilst swimming unless attempting an unusually difficult task. May substitute the Swim skill for Athletics and Evade rolls whilst in water (RQ6: pg 312-316)
Ability Passion: Increase all relevant skills by one grade per 2 points of intensity when the passion is relevant in situation. For example Hate Darjeeni Usurpers spirit provides skill increase only when both parts of the name exist at the same time ("Hate") and "Darjeeni Usurper"
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.
