Observers are alien humanoids from some other strange dimension. They appear to be visiting Earth to perform scientific and behavioral experiments on any seemingly random various lifeform that may pique their interest.
Often they will simply appear via teleport and silently watch events unfolding before them.
At other times they will use their empathy mutation to manipulate emotions to instigate fights or other situations they find interesting.

If two or more observers are encountered, they may attempt to possess other lifeforms bodies from a hidden location while using their damage turning mutation simultaneously.
They will then join in combat using the possessed bodies, testing their physical capabilities and limits, but always relinquishing control before death.

Observers rarely communicate with what they consider to be lesser beings. If they do, they never speak, preferring to use their neural telepathy instead.

Mutations: Damage Turning (Only during Possession use), Empathy, Force Screen, Neural Telepathy, Plane Shift, Possession, Teleport

Monstrous Mutated Monday: Noose Golem, Gundroid

Two new monsters presented for your approval:
the Noose Golem for Labyrinth Lord and the Gundroid for Mutant Future.

Please see The Other Side Blog for details on Monstrous Mondays
and The Savage After World Blog for Mutated Mondays.

No. Enc.:  1d4 (1d4)
Alignment:  Chaotic
Movement:  60' (20')
Armor Class:  3

Damage:  1d4 (per noose)

Noose Golems are often created as assassins by evil magic-users. They have all the special attributes of both golems and undead, meaning they may move silently and are immune to mind effecting spells such as hold, charm or sleep. They can be turned as undead, however.

They may attack five separate victims up to ten feet away. Their nooses choke victims when they successfully attack, and deal 1d4 hit points of damage each per successive round. For each noose that is choking a victim, the victim suffers a cumulative attack penalty of -1.
A noose can be cut off if a total of 6 hit points or more is dealt with one blow.
Blunt weapons will only do half damage to a noose golem.

Hit Dice:  50
Frame:  Armature
Locomotion:  Treads
Manipulators:  None
Armor:  Reactive (AC 1)
Sensors:  Class VI
Mental Programming:  Programming
