New Monster: MULTICELL

The Multicell is a complex biological structure consisting of many different cells performing highly specialized functions, working together within a cohesive system. This vituosity makes the Multicell extremely deadly at close quarters. The dendrites of the Multicell are much prized by apothecaries and are known to counter lockjaw.

Posessed of superhuman strength, the Land Squid, a giant, lunged cephalopod, makes for a fearsome fighter. But its real strength rests in its brace of dexterous iron-shod tentacles, which make the Land Squid an ideal Fighter/Organist; it is also exceedingly well suited to the Robot and Mu-Fu Monk professions, having a natural talent for "unarmed" combat.

New Monster: STUN BEAR

The Stun Bear is a member of the Grizzly family which has been genetically altered and mechanically enhanced by the Vorlak. While sharing the bloodthirty might of its more common cousin, the Stun Bear has the additional ability to clap his mighty forepaws together, delivering a shock wave capable of immobilizing all (2d6) nearby enemies for a short (1d8) period. The Stun Bear, when thus at leisure, typically avails himself of large mouthfuls of his incapacitaed victims, and is thus a rather deadly opponent.
