"Every bone in his body must be broken. But I'm not sure that's what killed him."

The last (?) creature on Mars is a hulking, vaguely reptilian figure with massive three clawed hands (it's feet have three claws as well).  It's face could be described as bat-like with humanoid ears.  Initially thought of as a dumb beast, it quickly displays intelligence, hiding the bodies of a victim it's drained of all liquid and oxygen with no wounds on him.  Nearly invulnerable, the crew is forced to blow open an airlock to kill it.  The astronauts who encounter it as a stowaway on their ship think it's the last of a Martian civilization descended into a primitive state.  It never occurs to them that given it's power and viciousness, it might have prevented the supposed Martian civilization from ever happening.

Throw (Ex): In melee combat, if an opponent attacks and misses the Martian, it may immediately make a trip attack against the opponent. This counts as an attack of opportunity, and does not provoke an attack of opportunity.  If the Trip attempt fails, the opponent does not get to try to Trip the Martian back.

Rend (Ex): If the Martian hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent’s body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 4d6+12 points of damage.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the Martian must hit with a claw attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

Blood Drain (Ex): The Martian can drain all fluids from a living victim via osmosis by making a successful grapple check. If it pins the foe, it drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution drain each round the pin is maintained. On each such successful attack, the Martian heals 5 hit points.

Sunder (Ex): The Martians natural attacks against objects ignore Hardness.

Invulnerability (Ex): Invulnerability is similar to Damage Reduction, but it also blocks damage from energy attacks, spells, spell-like abilities, and supernatural abilities.  For example the Martian has Invulnerability 20.  That means it negates the first 20 points of damage from any attack (this includes untyped damage).

Powerful Build (Ex): Whenever the Martian is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the Martian is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him.

The Martian is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. The Martian can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject’s size category.

Combat:
Due to it's incredible tenacity, the Martian generally dispenses with tactics, lurching toward the nearest target, before tearing it apart and moving on to the next one.

"Don't you worry Marge. I know where to get our men. Human men!"

The Andromedan's planet suffered a natural disaster, prompting them to flee in their fleet of spacecraft.  Searching for a new world, they come across the toxic planet Earth, losing all the females of their race along the way.  Finding humanoid life on the planet, they decided to settle down and construct suits that would let them survive our atmosphere while impersonating the locals.  Swiftly taking over many small towns, they set about researching ways to mutate Earth women to carry their children.  Notably, the Andromedan's are completely emotionless, and did not foresee a need to ask consent.  They begin kidnapping and replacing local married men who are childless in order to be ready when they make the necessary genetic breakthroughs.  They do, however, make some mistakes.  Animals can easily see through their disguise, which inspires an awful lot of pet murder.  They park their ship within walking distance of the town in a stupefying example of foolishness.  The technology that lets them pass as human also grants them emotions, which makes them behave oddly.  Being as Earth is toxic to them they don't partake of cigarettes or alcohol.  In 1950's America.  They mock humans for being dumb and short lived, but make glaring errors such as murdering people in the open on city streets, going swimming to keep up appearances (they can't swim), etc.  They are tall with hands of three tentacle like fingers, and stubby two toed feet.  Their mouth is circular, and it's eyes are the only other facial feature (besides some tubes, which may or may not be part of them).  Once they are discovered, all their ships flee, looking for another home.  Earth was the very first place they found after all, and given how inhospitable it is to them it's amazing they stopped here to begin with.

Kidnap (Su): If an opponent is helpless, paralyzed, stunned or unconscious, the Andromedan may change him into a Gaseous Form (as per the spell), after which the target is unconscious until he changes back to a solid form, and moves at 30 feet per round towards the Andromedan's ship.  So long as the Machine is working and on, the Andromedan may use this at will (it has a range of 10 feet), and the target remains in Gaseous Form until it arrives at the ship, and is plugged into the machine, or the machine is destroyed or turned off.

Stun (Ex): If the Andromedan successfully confirms a critical hit with it's Slam attack, it Stuns the target for one round.

Frightful Presence (Ex):Andromedans can inspire terror by charging or attacking. Creatures within 30 feet that have less hit dice than the Andromedan must succeed on a DC 15 Will save or become shaken for 2d6 rounds (if the Save is failed by 5 or more, the target is Frightened instead). The save DC is Charisma-based.  An opponent that succeeds on the saving throw is immune to that same Andromedan’s frightful presence for 24 hours.

Disintegrator : The Andromedans carry rayguns that fire a beam of unknown energy.  This weapon has a range of 100 feet, and can be fired every other round.  When firing it, the wielder makes a ranged touch attack, and if it is successful, the target must make a DC 19 Fortitude Save to take half damage, taking 12d6 damage if it fails.

Sunder (Ex): When the Andromedan,  in human or natural form, successfully hits an object with it's Slam attack, it gets a Sunder attempt as a Free Action without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.  If successful, the attack ignores Hardness.

Emotionless (Ex): In their natural state, the Andromedans are emotionless, immune to any mind-affecting effects.  Their machine, however, broadcasts emotions to them when they are in their artificial bodies in order to make their deception possible (meaning they lose this immunity).

Disguise (Ex):  The Andromedans can become gaseous and seep into an artificial body created from a human they have kidnapped.  This looks perfectly like the human they wish to mimic, and sounds perfectly like him too.  Animals, particularly ones with Scent, seem to see right through this disguise, and are never better than Hostile towards the Andromedan.  When uninhabited, this is an object with a Hardness of 5, and the same hit points as the Andromedan inhabiting it.

Alien Machine:  Kidnap victims are placed into a special machine that allows them to be kept alive and unconscious as long as they are plugged in.  It also provides several other benefits to the Andromedans:

It powers the artificial bodies they inhabit while disguised as humans, which protects them from Earth's atmosphere (If they are not in their artificial body, it still protects them from the atmosphere).  If the machine is destroyed, turned off, or the human it is mimicking is unplugged, it can take only a single move action or attack action and is destroyed utterly in the next round if it cannot escape.  This also happens if the Andromedan is given oxygen while in it's bodysuit, pretending to be a human.

It allows a version of telepathy with all other Andromedans of the creatures choice within 20 miles.  It also provides them access to the memories of the unconscious human they are mimicking.  When making a Skill Check, the Andromedan uses it's own ranks of the ranks of the human it is mimicking, whichever is greater.  It also lets them speak the language of the person they are impersonating.

It provides a forcefield, which is visible in their normal form, but invisible when being hidden in their bodysuits.  This forcefield renders them immune to damage from opponents who aren't adjacent to them  (and still stops Bludgeoning or Ballistic damage even if the opponent is adjacent).  A Disintegrate spell )or their own weapons) will destroy the forcefield on contact.  This sort of works like a Wall of Force that protects them from all directions.

Gaseous Form (Su): The Andromedans may cast Gaseous Form at will as a Supernatural Ability.  Unlike normal, they are immune to Earth's atmosphere in this form, and have a movement speed of 30 feet.  They must assume Gaseous form to enter or exit their human disguise (this is a Move Action).

Combat: In their human disguise, the Andromedans rely on their Slam attack, unless they are mimicking a member of a profession that can carry some sort of weapon.  In their natural form defending the ship, or to get rid of evidence (bodies) they use disintegrators.

“You’d have been fossilized with fear and glued to the ground! Then they’d have got you! You’d have been a cooked cucumber! You’d have been rasped into a thousand tiny bits, grated like cheese and flocculated alive! They’d have made necklaces from your knucklebones and bracelets from your teeth!”

The Vermicious Knids look like an egg stood up on it's pointed end, and covered in wet, wrinkled, greenish brown skin.  In their thickest, center point they have two red-pupiled eyes the size of teacups.  Their mass pulses slightly.  They vary somewhat, and some are larger than the average.  They can bend and shape their bodies into letters, such as when they take Wonka and company to 'scram' by forming the letters.  They can generally shift into just about any shape or form, but they keep the wet skin and red eyes.  Wonka claims they can stretch themselves into any letters they wish,  but that scram is the only word they know.  They have continually tried to invade Earth, but always burn up on entry.  Despite having no mouth, they are said to have other means of biting people, being able to take a mans head off at 5 yards.

Ram (Ex): If the Knid successfully makes a Charge attack it does 2d6 plus Str modifier plus 1d6 damage per 10 feet it traveled.

Improved Grab (Ex):  To use this ability, Knid must hit a creature of any size with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

If it wins the grapple check, it it establishes a hold and can attempt to swallow the opponent in the following round.

Swallow Whole (Ex):  A Knid can try to swallow a grabbed Medium or smaller opponent by making a successful grapple check.

A Knid that swallows an opponent can use its Cleave feat to bite and grab another opponent.

A swallowed creature takes 2d4+4 points of bludgeoning damage and 4 points of acid damage per round from the Knid’s gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 15 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 12). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

A Knid's gizzard can hold 1 Medium, 2 Small, 8 Tiny, or 32 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

Sunder (Ex): If the Knid successfully makes an attack with it's ram or bite, it can immediately make a Sunder attempt as a Free Action without provoking an attack of opportunity (it may only do this when attacking an object or constructs or similar structures.

Strange Reach (Su):  The Knids have a range of 15 feet, despite not having limbs this long.  Or at all for that matter.

Flight (Ex): A Knid's body is naturally buoyant. This buoyancy allows it to fly as the spell, as a free action, at a speed of 20 feet. This buoyancy also grants it a permanent featherfall effect with personal range.

Space Travel (Ex):  Knids are personally capable of existing in space and do not need to breathe, and are immune to Cold and Radiation damage.  They do not take penalties for being in zero G environments, or vacuum.  They are capable of space flight, and even at moving at vast speeds, but tend to burn up on re-entry to planets with an atmosphere.

Limited Shapeshifting (Ex): Knids cannot change their color or texture, but can change or stretch their basic form.  For example they could vaguely resemble a human or giraffe, but still have no features beyond it's wet, greenish-brown skin and red eyes.  Using this as a Swift Action, they can squeeze through a space half their size without movement penalty.

Combat:  Knids are okay tacticians, but rely overly much on their own brute prowess.  They don't use weapons, just their own personal brawn.  They will use teamwork to thwart opponents, but often their idea of teamwork is self limiting.  If a tactic fails, they tend to pursue it with more vigor, figuring they just need to 'try harder'.  Their speed is up to the DM, but is vastly improved upon what they can do in the atmosphere.

James motions silently to follow him, and  you are well away from the tavern before he is willing t speak.


"They're interested in you because they only recruit women who practice the Science.  As for the Ghouls...I trust them less than the Haxan.  We're posting guard until after they've left."

He looks askance at you for a moment.   "What encounters have you had with them?"

"Look! Someone's still alive!  Its the girl! To hell with the radiation, let's go!"

A rocket ship to Mars that was thought lost in space is found and returned to Earth.  The two survivors tell tales of giant monsters under the control of a shadowy figure, and being trapped planet side by a force field of unknown origin.  Barely escaping with their lives once the force field de-activates, a recording is found on their ship of someone claiming to represent Mars, and telling them they'll be destroyed if they return.

This appears as a large lump sprouting from the ground, with  vertical mouth surrounded by leaves, and 6 tentacles.  Found in the equatorial jungles of Mars, upon examination they were found to have little chlorophyll, and a possible nervous system.  It's almost immediately dispatched, so we never learn much about it.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a Plant must hit an opponent of Medium or smaller size with a tentacle attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can Swallow.

Swallow Whole (Ex):  A Plant can try to swallow a grabbed Medium or smaller opponent by making a successful grapple check.  A swallowed creature takes 2d8+9 points of bludgeoning damage and 9 points of acid damage per round from the Plant’s gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 16). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

A Plant’s gizzard can hold 2 Medium, 8 Small, 32 Tiny, or 128 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

Blind (Ex): The Plant has immunity to gaze attacks, visual effects, illusions, and other attack forms that rely on sight.

Combat: The Plant grabs the nearest creature, and tries to shovel it into it's maw.

The Rat Thing is a huge hairy creature with six, thorn covered spider-like limbs (the front two of which end in pincers).  It has two stubby arms underneath the head with clawed hands.  It's large, rat-like head has large ears resembling those of a bat.  It also has a long naked tail, and is bigger than a house at an estimated 40+ feet high.  Dwelling in the deserts just outside the forests, it is the only creature that can't be killed, but they do manage to chase it away by blinding it.

Improved Grab (Ex):  To use this ability, a Rat-Thing must hit a creature of any size with its Pincer attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.  If it wins the grapple check, it it establishes a hold and can attempt to constrict the opponent.

Constrict (Ex): The Rat-Thing does 4d6+13 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

Skills: Rat-Things have a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks and can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened

Combat: The Rat-Thing shows little fear despite being consistently attacked, and persists in trying to crush an astronaut despite sustaining fire.  It only retreats once it is blinded.

This is a large flattened blob of flesh, with a central ridge through the center of the body, and a fringe of tendrils to either side.  A large eye/nucleus sits to one side.  It will ponderously chase anything it sees, hoping to tire it's prey out.  It's only defeated when the ships crew electrify the hull of their vessel.

Engulf (Ex): Although it moves slowly, an Amoeba can simply mow down Gargantuan or smaller creatures as a standard action. It cannot make a Pseudopod attack during a round in which it engulfs. The Amoeba merely has to move over the opponents, affecting as many as it can cover. Opponents can make opportunity attacks against the Amoeba, but if they do so they are not entitled to a saving throw. Those who do not attempt attacks of opportunity must succeed on a DC 37 Reflex save or be engulfed; on a success, they are pushed back or aside (opponent’s choice) as the Amoeba moves forward. Engulfed creatures are subject to the Amoeba's acid, and are considered to be grappled and trapped within its body. The save DC is Strength-based and includes a +1 racial bonus.  The Amoeba can also Engulf a single creature with a successful Grapple Check.

Capsize (Ex): A submerged Amoeba that surfaces under a boat or ship less than 30 feet long capsizes the vessel 95% of the time. It has a 50% chance to capsize a vessel from 30 to 75 feet long and a 20% chance to capsize one over 75 feet long.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, an Amoeba must hit with its Pseudopod attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can Engulf.

Acid (Ex):  The creature secretes a digestive acid that dissolves organic and inorganicmaterial. Any melee attack deals acid damage, and the opponent’s armor and clothing dissolve and become useless immediately unless they succeed on DC 35 Reflex saves. A weapon that strikes an Amoeba also dissolves immediately unless it succeeds on a DC 35 Reflex save. The save DCs are Constitution-based.

The Amoeba’s acidic touch deals 21 points of damage per round to objects, but the ooze must remain in contact with the object for 1 full round to deal this damage.

Disease (Ex): Anything successfully touched or Engulfed by the Amoeba must make a DC 35 Fortitude Save or be infected by the Amoeba's enzymes, which begin to grow on it (Save DC is Con based).  Incubation time is 1 day, damage is 1d6 Con.

Skills:  The Amoeba has a +8 Racial Bonus to Spot Checks.

Combat: The Amoeba simply speeds towards whatever it sees, engulfing it.

Alligator People (Pre-Cobalt)
This is an Acquired Template that can applied to any Humanoid (Human) that undergoes reptilian hormone treatments to cure bodily damage.  They seem fine at first, and regenerate their wounds completely.  But eventually they begin mutating into reptilian creatures, with symptoms of varying degrees a year later.  Some are still intelligent, some revert to animals.  They can often be calmed by water or heat lamps, but some must be sedated.  Exposure to x-rays seems to slow development of the symptoms.

Size and Type: Unchanged, but gains the Augmented Subtype.

"I'll kill you Alligator Man! Just like I'd kill any four-legged gator!"

In 1959, an amnesiac nurse is administered sodium pentothal in a Louisiana psychiatric facility.  Surprisingly, the science behind this is accurate, it was used for this purpose.  Don't get used to this scientific literacy.  She tells a story of marrying a local man, only to see him disappear on their honeymoon after receiving a call.  Employing private detectives, she traces him to a plantation in a remote, rural town.  Traveling there she is allowed to spend the night so long as she doesn't leave her room.  Obviously, she disobeys this, and sees her husband as a reptile mutant.  After mild misadventure she finds a mad scientist has been using reptile hormones to regenerate the limbs and broken flesh of airplane crash victims (including her husband), but that later they began to take on reptilian features.  Trying an experimental cure involving cobalt radiation, they only turn her husband into an alligator headed man due to a lab accident involving a vile local.  Things swiftly go straight to hell, and only the nurse is left.  The psychiatrists decide she can't live a normal life without the amnesia blocking out her repressed memories, so they tell her nothing.

"This island is unprotected.  I can assure you, we're in for a good pounding."

In 1964, a drunken actress hires a seedy pilot to fly her to Massachusetts.  They are forced to land on a small island due to a nasty storm, finding it's only inhabitant to be a former US Government agent who spied on the Germans during WWII.  Turns out, he's a mad scientist studying flesh eating viruses created by the nazis for use as a bioweapon, and he's helpfully filled the local waters with them.  Before making plans on how to actually leave the island.  The pilot and his passengers only find out, because skeletons start washing up on the shore.  They try killing the Flesh Eaters with electricity, which only makes them merge into a single super virus.  Eventually, they figure out the virii don't eat blood or bone (or dead flesh), so hemoglobin might be poison to them.  I'll pause while you digest that sentence...

Surprisingly injecting the blob with hemoglobin works.  The viruses appear as small, bioluminescent organisms.  Once electricity causes them to conjoin, they become hulking blobs with 2 short tentacles, and a central mouth and eye.They can burn their way through anything to reach flesh, once they sense it.

Acid (Ex): A Flesh Eater secretes a digestive acid that quickly dissolves organic and inorganic material. Any melee hit or constrict attack deals 1d6 acid damage.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a Flesh Eater must hit with a tentacle attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can constrict.

Constrict (Ex):  A Flesh Eater deals automatic tentacle and acid damage with a successful grapple check. 

Stench (Ex): All living creatures (except Flesh Eaters) within 30 feet of a Flesh Eater must succeed on a DC 16 Fortitude save or be sickened for 10 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based. Creatures that successfully save cannot be affected by the same Flesh Eater’s stench for 24 hours. A delay poison or neutralize poison spell removes the effect from the sickened creature. Creatures with immunity to poison are unaffected, and creatures resistant to poison receive their normal bonus on their saving throws.

Viral Aura (Ex):  A clumped together Flesh Eater is still surrounded by a cloud of it's un-clumped brethren.  Anything adjacent to the Flesh Eater must make a DC 16 Fortitude Save, or take 1d6 Acid damage.  The save DC is Constitution-based.

Immunities: While the Flesh Eaters take no damage from electricity, they must make a Fortitude Save (DC is based on size) or be Stunned for some amount of time, depending on their size.  Loose microscopic viruses (24 hours), Small to Large (1 Minute), Huge or bigger (1 round).

Clumping (Ex): When exposed to electrical damage, the Flesh Eaters lump together into a single, ever growing organism.  A 20 gallon aquarium full of them that takes at least 15 points of electricity damage, becomes the creature listed in this statblock, but is Stunned for 1 round (plus 1 more round each time it takes electrical damage).  If there are more Flesh Eaters, they will continue to clump together, gaining 1 Hit Die and increasing in size fr every 5 points of electricity damage.  Spells that arc from one creature to another, such as Chain Lightning, or that cover an area (such as Lightning Bolt) cause all the Flesh Eaters in that area of effect to move together and fuse into one (they may do this despite being stunned).  See Advancement to see how many Hit Dice the creature needs to increase in size.

Vulnerability: Hemoglobin is incredibly toxic to the Flesh Eaters, and they gain 1 Negative Level per round they  are in contact with it.  If they are injected with Hemoglobin, they must make a DC 25 Fortitude Save, or die in 1d4 rounds.

Skills: A Flesh Eater has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered.
Flesh Eaters have a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks and can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened.

Combat: The virus eats whatever it sees, like a pre-programmed robot.

"On a hunch, Martin decided to see for himself if the monster was still there. It was."

In 1964, an alien spacecraft lands in rural California.  A large creature departs before the authorities arrive, and find another creature restrained inside the ship.  Setting a guard around it, they investigate, while the first critter goes on a killing spree.  Despite being slow, and very visible, it manages to mow down dozens of people before being killed with a hand grenade.  The other creature is killed by an automobile after escaping.  Local scientists assume the creatures are living factories, devouring the planets dominant life form to break it down and radio back any weaknesses it might discover.  How they know this is not explained, and fairly sketchy.  The creature is a large, sluglike beast, with a pronounced bulge that is clearly a head.  The top of this head is ringed with dangling eyestalks, and there is an open, sucker like mouth at the bottom.  It appears to be made of a collection of rotting hides and vegetation, letting it blend in with tall grass and brush.

Improved Grab (Ex):  To use this ability, a Terror must hit a creature of Medium Size size with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.  If it wins the grapple check, it it establishes a hold and can attempt to swallow the opponent in the following round.

Swallow Whole (Ex):
  A Terror can try to swallow a grabbed Medium or smaller opponent by making a successful grapple check.  A Terror that swallows an opponent can use its Cleave feat to bite and grab another opponent.  A swallowed creature takes 2d8+8 points of bludgeoning damage and 8 points of acid damage per round from the Terror’s gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 15). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.  A Terror’s gizzard can hold 3 Medium, 12 Small, 48 Tiny, or 192 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

Cowering Presence (Ex): A Terror can unsettle foes with its mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever the Terror attacks, or charges. Creatures within a radius of 30 feet are subject to the effect if they have fewer HD than the Terror. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a DC 17 Will save (Save DC is Cha based) remains immune to that Terror’s cowering presence for 24 hours. On a failure, creatures with 4 or less HD become cowered for 4d6 rounds and those with 5 or more HD become shaken for 4d6 rounds. Terrors ignore the cowering presence of other Terrors.

Skills: The Creeping Terror looks like a mass of vegetation, and thus has a +10 Cover Bonus to Hide Checks in high grass or brush.

Combat: Despite it's lumbering, ungainly movement, the Terror seems very efficient at mowing people down and swallowing them.  Which is basically all it does, it has no fear.

"Dr. Carrington, you're a man who won the Nobel Prize. You've received every kind of international kudos a scientist can attain. If you were for sale I could get a million bucks for you from any foreign government. I'm not, therefore, gonna stick my neck out and say you're stuffed absolutely clean full of wild blueberry muffins, but I promise my readers are gonna think so."

In 1951, a UFO crash lands near the north pole, and the US Air Force Command is sent to investigate.  They accidentally destroy the ship trying to de-ice it with thermite, but find what they presume to be the pilot frozen in the ice nearby.  Bringing back the body, a soldier puts a heated blanket on it so he can't see the 'monster', thereby guaranteeing the ice would melt.  Surprisingly, the monster reanimates once freed, and loses an arm fighting a dozen sled dogs.  The loss of the arm doesn't seem to hinder it, and the arm re-animates once it's absorbed some blood.  After many attempts at killing it once it is found trying to grow more of it's kind, the air force finally succeeds in electrocuting it.  The Things is a stockily built humanoid just over 7 feet tall.  It is bald with a pronounced brow ridge, and the knuckles of it's clawed hands sprout vicious thorns.  It has tan to green skins, and a charcoal grey uniform.  It likely speaks a language, but makes no attempts at communication.

Blood Drain (Ex): The Thing can suck blood from a living victim through it's skin by making a successful grapple check. If it pins the foe, it drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution drain each round the pin is maintained. On each such successful attack, the Thing gains 5 temporary hit points.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the Thing must hit with a claw attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

Throw (Ex): If the Thing succeeds with a Grapple Check, it does it's claw damage, throws the opponent up to 10 feet, and knocks it Prone.  This ends the Grapple, and does an additional +1d6 damage.  Additionally, the opponent must make a DC 19 Fortitude Save, or be Dazed 1 round.

Improvised Weapons: The Thing is considered Proficient with Improvised Weapons.

Hibernation (Ex): If the Thing would have to make Saving Throws against thirst, starvation or environmental exposure (or poison/disease), it may elect instead to enter a cataleptic state indistinguishable from death.  Although able to smell, hear, and know what is going on, the Thing is blind and has no sense of touch or pain.  The Thing does not need to eat, drink, or breathe.  While the hibernation is in effect, the Thing is immune to subdual damage, and any normal or ability damage inflicted is reduced by half.  In addition, the Thing is immune to mind-affecting attacks, paralysis, poison, disease, and energy drain. The effects of any poison or disease already affecting the Thing when the hibernation takes effect are halted until the hibernation ends.  If the subject has any negative levels when the hibernation takes effect, the saving throw to remove it is delayed until the hibernation ends.

Regeneration (Ex): Fire and electricity deal normal damage to a Thing. If a Thing loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 3d6 minutes. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.  Sufficient blood supply can regenerate a second creature from a severed body part.  For example, if a  severed arm gets blood poured on it, it regains 5 hit points.

Powerful Build (x): The physical stature of Things lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category larger.

Whenever a Thing is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the Thing is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him.

A Thing is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. A Thing can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject’s size category.

Combat:The Thing is fairly fearless when not confronting fire or electricity, and it still seems fairly brave in the face of those.  It will used throws or improvised weapons to keep multiple opponents at bay while it tries to kill them one by one.  But if it gets low on hp it will flee until it regenerates.

Psionics:
The Death Mind manifests Powers as a 10th Level Psion (with access to Nomad and Telepath lists, 133 Power Points).  Usual Powers known are:

Earth Glide (Su): A Death Mind can glide through stone, dirt, or almost any other sort of earth except metal as easily as a fish swims through water. Its burrowing leaves behind no tunnel or hole, nor does it create any ripple or other signs of its presence. A move earth spell cast on an area containing a burrowing Death Mind flings the thing back 30 feet, stunning the creature for 1 round unless it succeeds on a DC 15 Fortitude save.

Vulnerability: The Death Mind takes double damage from spells or creatures that have the Good descriptor.
