A-Z Challenge - B is for Bubba Ho-Tep

Today's post was inspired by the book I'm reading The Best of Joe R. Lansdale. It's also not my first Bubba Ho-Tep-related post. I statted out the King for Cinematic Unisystem. Stat-wise Bubba isn't anything that new. He's a slightly toned down version of the mummy in the core DCC book. However, he doesn't have mummy rot, instead he drains souls.

Bubba Ho-Tep

While he's not a native to the Shudder Mountains, the mummy known as Bubba Ho-Tep now calls those rustic mountains home. The creature and its sarcophagus were stolen by thieves from an eccentric collector. The thieves met their end during one of the flash floods that regularly occur in the valleys of the Shudder Mountains. The mummy escaped the mud and its coffin and began preying on the shudfolk (and strangely dressing like them). The slow and shambling creature prefers to prey on the elderly and infirm.
