Platycleis affinis, the tuberous bushcricket. It holds the record for largest testicles in relation to body weight. Its testicles account for 14 percent of its body weight. The testicles of a 200-pound (91 kg) man with that nut-to-body ratio would weigh 28 pounds (13 kg).

The "Enjoys Nickelback" should be put in Chaotic Evil, not Chaotic Neutral. :)

Also, there should be "Drinks Light Beer" which I think probably goes in Neutral Evil.

Take 1 hour of heavy metal music
Add 5 ounces of mid-1980s Satanic Panic
Toss in 13 grams of modern-day action
Stir in 666 miles of dungeon-crawl insanity
Stick a guitar-axe in there
Pour a sixer of cold beer on it
Serve inside a snare drum
And you get Lacerations of the Slain Priestess
Melting faces very soon!

Lusus Naturae is now full-color!
Thanks to everyone for the support, for backing this horrific OSR bestiary, and/or for putting the word out! The campaign ends tomorrow afternoon, at which point I'll crank up some Iron Maiden and knock out a couple of cold beers. \m/

100% cool. I got this:
"You see a gnomish wizard known as Pox the Lost. They are an Associate Professor of Systematic  Runecasting at The Scholomance. They are dressed in talisman-draped robes and are closely examining a strange bauble."
 
Austin made a random wizard generator. This is the sort of ridiculous project of which I strongly approve. +Don Smith +Jesse Bond +Nora Camann +Beth Lusczek +James Mardock 
So I stayed up awfully late last night and made a blogger for Temple of Elemental Pixels because Tumblr hates javascript. But look! I made a Wizard Generator! Click HERE to generate a wizard. They are sure to eye you str...

Sweet Jesus, this is amazing. This starts off great and becomes legendary. I want to dig up my grandmother every time they zoom in or out. I want to jump out the window with a flaming guitar in my hands every time someone walks in the room with a WTF look on their face. I want to get an MP3 of the music and blast it from my minivan. I want to watch this show without subtitles and make up my own story.

We once had to come up with Lazy Evil because a player said (of his character) "I can't be bothered killing the small child."

If you dig DCC, you'll want to see these monsters! These conversions by +Jürgen Mayer include the death-singing Acronical, the memory-stealing Dreg Stalker, and the Onlooker, which is made from dying halflings.
 
In collaboration with +Rafael Chandler, Dead Cyclops presents DCC RPG conversions of 5 monsters from his Teratic Tome bestiary: 

Winged humanoids with grey feathers and scabby pink faces, scavengers look like human-vulture hybrids.
http://deadcyclops.blogspot.de/2014/04/teratic-tome-dcc-scavenger.html

An amorphous blob of tissue with sensory organs that are little more than thick pores on its oily skin, the dreg-stalker is a predator that stalks sewers and alleys.
http://deadcyclops.blogspot.de/2014/04/teratic-tome-dcc-dreg-stalker.html

The acronical is a large insectile predator that strides on six armored legs.
http://deadcyclops.blogspot.de/2014/04/teratic-tome-dcc-acronical.html

Elegant and formal, the bothrians are a mild-mannered race of beings that seek only to enjoy the good things in life -- to carefully slice flavorful meat and sip chilled wine while listening to music and watching their victims scream as the skin is carefully peeled away from the muscle.
http://deadcyclops.blogspot.de/2014/04/teratic-tome-dcc-bothrian.html

The onlooker appears as a large sphere of greenish-blue tissue, from which dangle 10 tentacles of different lengths.

Bad. Wrong. Fun!
Well, dearly beloved, it appears that Lusus Naturae has hit the first and only stretch goal: full color illustrations! I will now celebrate by taking my wife to the movies (Captain America, natch). Excelsior!
If you contributed, I owe you a kidney. I hope that you will settle for an OSR bestiary. Feel free to post comments here!

Introduction
I've been writing video games since 2003. I also create tabletop RPG books (including Teratic Tome, ViewScream, The Starship From Hell, and Pandemonio).

  * Urban fantasy
  * Sci-fi TV
  * Daikaiju eiga
  * Metal (thrash, death, and black)

Not interested in political discussions (unless you're talking about the power struggle between illithids and aboleths) or conversations about religion (unless we're discussing Cthulhu worshipers).
Bragging rights
Lectured in Moscow. Pitched a video game in Paris (successfully). Worked with Fear Factory on a video game soundtrack. Scored a 10/10 RPG.net review from Christopher W. Richeson. Author of The Game Writing Handbook, which was a finalist for the Game Developer Front Line Awards.
