Wherein I Reveal A Medical Issue (And Stat It)

No true update for today, as I am still dealing with that most dreaded of foes, the Kidney Stone. Because I can't leave you empty-handed, here's a quick stat-up of one for Mutant Future:

Kidney Stone

This small, kidney-shaped rock generally lies dormant until its prey wanders by. Then it launches itself at their abdomen. Its bite causes tremendous, nigh-unbelievable pain. They are attracted to adventurers with high-protein, high-caffeine diets and those apparently cursed by the gods.

Number Encountered: 1d4
Alignment: Chaotic
Movement: Almost Nil
Armor Class: 8
Hit Dice: 10
Attacks: 1 (it doesn't need any more)
Damage: 12d8
Save: L9
Morale: 11
Hoard Class: None

Cranberry juice does deter it, as does being thrown through the air. It is therefore recommended upon meeting one, to drink plenty of cranberry juice and pass it as quickly as possible.

Ouch, man!

I've had kidney stones several times and they are horrible! Feel better.

I'm not sure, but I think I have heard that drinking lemon juice does help break them up.

Mark Gedak said...

I think 12d8 is too low for damage.

It will pass, my friend. On that day you will know the true meaning of joy.

Hope it passes soon and with minimal pain sir. You have certainly discovered a the ideal manner of blogging it, though!

Good luck with that fight. I hope you can win that and enjoy the XP earned.

What is its treasure type? Or would it just be relief.
