Monster: Digester

Monster: Digester

The digester is an often overlooked monster from Monster Manual. It's a voracious predator that sprays potent acid. I'd recommend letting PCs collect several doses of acid from a digester's body with an appropriate skill check.

Sharp Claws (13): 1d+1 cutting (KYOS: 2d cutting), Reach C-1. On a miss requires a DX roll to avoid falling.
Acid Spray (13): A digester can spray acid from a tubelike orifice in its forehead. This attack has no Acc, and has 1/2D 5 and Max 10.  This attack is a continuous stream, like a flamethrower. Treat it as a melee weapon with a very long reach rather than as a ranged weapon. Do not apply penalties for target range and speed. This attack deals 4d corrosion damage.
