Monster: Shocker Lizard

Monster: Shocker Lizard

The shocker lizard is an interesting beast that has an exotic sense and two electrical abilities. Much more dangerous in groups than alone.

Passive Electroreception (12): See GURPS Powers: Enhanced Senses, p. 17.
Stunning Shock (14): Once per 5 seconds, the shocker lizard can create an electrical discharge that has a chance to stun an enemy. This is a ranged attack with 1/2D 10, Max 100, Acc 3, RoF 1, Shots N/A, and Recoil 1. It works at 1/10 of its range underwater. A struck victim must make an immediate HT roll with a bonus equal to half of his DR. The victim gets a further +3 if he is beyond 1/2D range. If the victim makes his HT roll, he is unaffected. If he fails, he is stunned (see p. B420). He may roll vs. HT once per second to recover (DR has no effect on this roll).
Lethal Shock: Once per 5 seconds, whenever a shocker lizard has two other shocker lizards within 4 yards, it can create a lethal shock in a 4-yard-radius area around itself. This shock deals 2d burning surge damage and can work underwater. Targets stuck by this attack must make an HT roll, at -1 per 2 points of penetrating damage, or be physically stunned. On subsequent turns, they can roll HT to recover.
