Re: MMM - Mini-Monster Manual

Snail, Giant Cone (2HD) | ×App 1-6 | AC 4 | MV 10, climb 10 | HD 2 (hp 8) | ATT bite (1d4 +grapple, poison) or harpoon (20' 1d8 +poison) | SA/D: marine camouflage; poison; spit tethered harpoon, shell | SV 16 | ML 10 | INT non | DX 5 | SZ M (4') | TC - | XP 76 | Instinct: relentless predator
This hog-sized spotted snail leaves a viscous trail of slime in its wake as a long rasping proboscis tastes the air for prey. Its intricately patterned shell is roughly shaped like a cone. 
— Surprizes on a 3:6 when submerged in water
— Shell: gain +4 armor (0) but can't move or attack.
— Poison causes paralysis, followed by death in 2d4 rounds (save negs). If saved, pain causes -2 all rolls and makes feats impossible for 1d6 days.
— The victim of a bite automatically takes 1d4 damage per round for as long as the snail is attached.
— The snail can fire its tethered harpoon at an opponent up to 20 feet away. If snail hits, the filament latches onto the opponent’s body, hindering them. This drags the stuck opponent 10 feet closer each subsequent round unless that creature breaks free. The filament has 10 hit points and is AC 2. If the filament is severed, it grows back within 1 hour.

— The snail can fire its tethered harpoon at an opponent up to 30 feet away. If snail hits, the filament latches onto the opponent’s body, hindering them. This drags the stuck opponent 10 feet closer each subsequent round unless that creature breaks free. The filament has 12 hit points and is AC 1. If the filament is severed, it grows back within 1 hour.

Marbled cone snails are marine gastropod mollusks, about medium to large in size, usually as big as a normal sized hand. Their intricately patterned shells are roughly shaped like an ice-cream cone and are highly prized by shell collectors. Living in the ridges of Pacific and Indian Ocean, it has a shell over its body. The marbled cone snail can be found in various colors, ranging from black with white dots to orange with white patterns. It is also known as “cigarette snail”, which means that most of the time, a person stung by a cone snail has only time to smoke a cigarette before dying. There are over 500 different species of marbled cone snails.

Re: MMM - Mini-Monster Manual

By the way — I have hundreds of monsters converted from Pathfinder and other OGL/Creative Commons sources. If anyone has a request, hit me up. I have a pretty good quick conversion formula distilled from comparisons of D20 and old-school D&D monsters (for those who are particular about having some rules skeleton to their creatures).
