(TFT) Purple Death Hippos
I found these critters while browsing the internet over the holiday
weekend and extrapolated this conversion to TFT.
PURPLE DEATH HIPPOS:
These subartic relatives of the tropical hippopotamus have developed
telekinetic abilities in order to support their immense weight, and, to
better fuel their telekinesis, they have evolved into carnivores. Purple
death hippos generally leave human(oid)s alone, preferring the blubbery meat
of walruses and cetaceans, but humans will hunt them for their ivory and
their purple fur, and purple death hippos will protect themselves when
Purple death hippos are found in family groups of from 4 to 20 members.
The smallest groups will be a mated pair with 2 or 3 young. Larger groups
consist of a male and his pride, with possibly one or two matrons or elderly
males, and, on rare occasions, the male is a full grown bull, or a grand
matron is included in the pride. Sometimes small groups of widowed matrons
whose young have grown are met.

(For DX first number is physical, second is telekinetic. For MA first
number in on land, second is in air or water.) Females, males, matrons,
bulls, and grandmatrons can all stomp for 3D. All purple death hippos can
drop themselves from telekinetic flight onto prey causing 1D per hex of size
(SZ) impact damage to the victim of their plummet. All purple death hippos
have the following "spells": Reverse missles (only against physical items,
not missle spells), Break weapon (will only recognize a weapon as a weapon
when it is used against them), Flight (costs 3ST, or 1ST per hex of size,
whichever is greater, ans 2ST per turn to maintain), and Telekinesis.
Campfire tales are told of 14 hex greatgrandmatrons (2,3,4,3,2
configuration). The hides of grand matrons and elderly purple death hippos
are not worth much -- too warty, and the fur becomes patchy -- and the ivory
of elderly males is generally worthless.
Purple death hippos were developed by Ken StAndre from an idea of Ugly
John Carver. You can read more about purple death hippos at
