2e Tuesday - Centisteeds (Fast Trotters)

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...

Centisteeds (Fast Trotters)

No. Enc: 1d4

Why ride a horse when you can ride an 18-heeler?  Centisteeds resemble horses with insectoid eyes and 10 + 2d4 legs.  Two medium sized creatures can ride a centisteed, but one of them must maintain full concentration on the mount to control it.  A centisteed that throws a rider will not hesitate to trample her!  Despite their temperament and prodigious appetite, centisteeds are greatly sought after because they can emit a force field to protect themselves and their riders. 

Mutations:  Aberrant Form; Force Screen, Greater; Increased Caloric Needs

Knights on Centisteeds have a certain charm for me.  I like these guys.
