Elder God (Generic Boss)
rating: +1+x

By Mailanka

This template offers a generic Elder God for use in a game. Elder Gods are always bosses. This template requires at least one basic template to function, but generally Elder Gods will have considerably more power than that.
Elder Gods vary a great deal. This template deals with the wriggling, tentacled horror sort of Elder God. Others certainly exist.

Skills: N/A.
Class: Elder Thing.
Combat Effectiveness Rating: 73 (OR 34 and PR 39).
Notes: Extra Arms add +2 to grapples for each past the first used. Once it has bitten a delver with its Fleshy Maw, it may begin its constriction attack. Fragile represents its inability to stay in our world if sufficiently damaged. Extra Attacks means it has 3 extra attacks, Compartmentalized Mind means it has one additional mental actions, which means the Elder God has 5 total actions per second. Only beings with appropriate mental disadvantages (ie Insanity) may negotiate with an elder god. An Elder God costs 50 energy points to summon. Truly Evil.
