How to create a poisonous creature?

Recommended Posts

I want to build an encounter similar to the one in Attack of the Clones, where kouhuns (the poisonous caterpillars that tried to kill Padme Amidala) attack the heroes. I imagine that they would be easy to kill (low wound threshold), but also very deadly.

 

How would you go about creating a creature with toxic venom? Would the damage increase over time as the poison travels through the PC's bloodstream? Would it create critical hit conditions which get progressively worse with time?

 

If anyone wants to take a stab at creating a stat block for a kouhun, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I've taken some queues from the various poisons one could use in grenades or darts and modified to fit my personal taste. Here is a creature of my own creation. It is a reptomammal that hunts on a particular world a player & I created but will show up elsewhere in very rare circumstances.
