World of Darkness - Ovomorph and Facehugger

Back in April of 2013 I did a quickie post about Xenomorphs for the April A-Z Blog Challenge. Like many things I talk about, I never got around to statting out the aliens and predators. Well, I've been bitten by inspiration (or maybe it was a facehugger). It will probably take me a few weeks to do all the posts I want, but I'm starting them today. I present to you the Ovomorph (alien egg) and facehugger.


Description Ovomorph (as xenomorph eggs are known) are seemingly inert leather "eggs." They have an ability to sense prey and will bloom, allowing the facehugger contained within to launch itself at nearby prey.

The eggs can lay inert for thousands of years and are rendered inert by the blue reactive mist of the Engineers.

Any time the ovomorph takes damage, it attacks a creature within 5' with an Acid Splash attack.



Facehuggers are parasites, whose sole purpose is to attach to a humanoids face and implant an egg. Once attached the host is essentially done for. The creature will keep the host alive long enough for it to implant an embryo. Attempts to remove the facehugger typically result in it tightening its grip around the creatures throat. The creature's acidic blood tend to discourage cutting it off. Even if it was to be removed, it's powerful grip would likely rip the victims face off.

Still in the World of Darkness, there may be magic able to keep a victim alive.
