Corn Avatar (Immature)
rating: +1+x

By jhubertjhubert

An Immature Corn Avatar appears when the Corn Avatar seeded by Corn Stalkers is forced to leave its Heap - a small mound of fertilizer, animal carcasses, and other biological waste - before it is fully grown. It nevertheless is quite a horror - a shambling monstrosity consisting of little more than roots and plant vines that smash everything in their path. It will quickly try to dispatch the intruders, and then seek out a place where it can dig into the earth again and grow further into a fully-fledged avatar. Its attendant Corn Stalkers will defend it to the death.

Skills: Intimidate-14
Class: Plant
Combat Effectiveness Rating: 43 (OR 15 and PR 28).
Notes: When encountered, will first be covered behind 4 inches of compost (DR 12) before bursting forth. This bursting forth will likely cause a Fright Check, especially for people not expecting it. Furthermore, like Corn Stalkers it has wounding modifiers of ×1/2 versus impaling and huge piercing, ×1/3 versus large piercing, ×1/5 versus piercing, and ×1/10 versus small piercing thanks to its Injury Tolerance, and it doesn't have any "vital organs" that can be hit, either.
