That's right, Gamma World 2nd edition... what 2e did you think I meant? Every Tuesday I will pick one of my favorite monsters from the fully illustrated bestiary included in the 2d edition Gamma World Basic Rules Booklet and convert it to Mutant Future. Today's monster is...
Yexils (Orange Scarfers)
No. Enc: 1d4
Fly: 240' (60')
Armor Class: 5
Hit Dice: 15
Attacks: 1 (bite)
Hoard Class: VIII + Unique (Yexils horde clothing and their "treasure" will also consist of various synthetic fabrics)
Yexils bring a smile to the face of any entrepreneurial residents of the Mutant Future. These flying leonine creatures have a ravenous appetite for manufactured fabrics (the only thing they eat) and will trade "worthless" artifacts that they have found as they fly over the wastelands for particularly tasty synthetics. Yexils have few natural enemies due to their size, deadly bite and the laser beams they shoot from their eyes!
Mutations: Reflective Epidermis (cold), Unique (Laser Eyes, 80' range, 5d6 damage)
This really is a great illustration. Honestly, this might be Gamma World in a nutshell - a lion-bat that shoots lasers from its eyes and eats synthetic clothing. Take that, all you overly serious post-apocalyptic sci-fi games!
