* This xenos can shape shift to appear in the of any creature of Average-size, or one size category larger or smaller, which the Jorōgumo has previously encountered/eaten, and it effects all senses (sight, sound, touch, etc.).

** A Jorōgumo must feast on liquefied internal organs of a sentient being every 72 hours via its Bite attack or gain 1 level of Fatigue that cannot be removed by any means other than successfully feeding on a victim. These levels of Fatigue are cumulative; if they equal or exceed the Jorōgumo’ Toughness Bonus, it falls into a deathlike state of suspended animation until a potential victim is one meter away or less.

PS: I know neither of these are original but brownie points for any one who what folklore number 2 came from.

Edit: added Mire Lurk backstory and Changed Jorōgumo feeding time.

Hi,

how about a little bit more about the look, habbit and demaneour of those creatures? Or are those already mentioned somewhere else (in the fluff)? If so, where? Having a tat of references to a block of stats is always helpful in actually putting those things to work in any game (RT, DH, BW or otherwise).

@the Jorogúmo
Is this a natural creature? I ask because I find the "one SENTIENT creature A DAY"diet  to be hard to keep up within in a "natural Environment". Unless sentient beings are plentiful an REPRODUCING FAST in its natural environment.... and them being to  stupid / docile / peaceful to start a "hunt" after a month were they wittnessed the death of 30 of their community....or after two with 60... you get me, I guess.
Which is the eccosystem this creature strives in despite ist special diet and voracious appetite?

The Jorogumo sounds a bit like from one of those old black and white thrillers. I'm not saying its a copy but I'm saying good job! I also like the Mire Lurk, exactly the thing you would find in a swampy jungle.

Gregorius21778 said this.

 

Stranger creatures exist and as I said it sounds like its from an old thriller. A thin, spiteful creature that thinks nothing of manipulating people to slake its hunger. It can show itself by getting desperate commiting a full out assualt to escape the gnawing feeling of hunger.

Well the Mire Lurk is from Fallout, I think.

 

And I believe he is getting the Jorogúmo from the ancient Japanese legend of old spiders gaining a magical power that turns them into beautiful women, so they can seduce men and eat them/drain their blood/ etc.  Hence with the web sprew and "claws."

Might not be right but good connections nevertheless. I think we need a bit more detail though as I can't make out what to imagine.

As Nameless2all mentioned Mire Lurk brought immediatly Fallout into my mind

How many of these have I hunted in the dark, dank places in Fallout 3 is uncountable.

 

Jorogumo (Spider Woman from Japanese Folklore) as Nameless2all said

Possibly best picture I could find, everything else was almost porn

Ah, New Foes. -Not to be confused with the U-Foes:

(Yes, I'm old enough to own this issue...)

 

-Ahem- So, yeah, I agree with Gregorius in the second post- more background/habitat detail would be useful in judging the depiction of these critters.
