Lag Beasts are a strange creation of an unknown mage long ago. The exact
method of their creation is a mystery. The one thing known for sure is that
no creature was exempt from his foul experiments. Lag Beasts have been
encountered in the form of cute little bunnies all the way up to vicious
dragons. There is no way to be sure that your next encounter isn't going to
be with this horrible creature.
A Lag Beast attacks as per the normal forms of the apparent creature. Where
this differs is in its special ability. Some type of temporal distortion
field which seems to get stronger the more figures there are on the
battlemap. At times you'll stand helpless and watch as it lumbers towards
you, at others it'll appear to just be standing there, caught in its own
temporal flux only for you to watch it appear right beside you, half your
life ripped away. Many have been killed having never even seen it move from
the spot it was encountered in.
A Lag Beast gets one extra turn per 2 figures attacking, in which the players
may take no actions. For example, a group of 4 warriors trying to kill a Lag
Goblin will find to their dismay, that it gets 2 extra turns to attack while
the players stand helpless to defend themselves. During this time roll on the
following chart for each player individually to see what he of she perceives.
1. The beast doesn't leave its starting location
2. The beast moves one hex then freezes
3. You watch helpless as it takes its turn normally
4. The beast leaves trailing images as it moves
5. The beast bounces to a different hex
6. Roll again, on another roll of 6, you have been BOOTED from the battle.
You are safe
for 1dx5 turns while you try to LOG back into the game.
Ok, ok. I have gotten silly. To much online gaming I guess.
