The Chaos Project Archives:
Chaotic Features

Chaotic Features are an integral part of The Chaos Project. This archive contains Chaotic Features created both by myself and by many other gamers, all of whom have my deep gratitude.


Roll Created by: Feature:

01 Name: Ken Murphy
Strength of a Thousand Men. Creature's STR is 3D6+167.

02 Name: Ken Murphy
Bottomless Pit. Creature can swallow a hog'shead-worth of liquid (3D10+22, x10liters)per 5SRs. Creature effectively possesses an endless capacity, but it'll be affected normally by any special features of the liquid; like alcohol's or a potion's POT.

03 Name: Ken Murphy
Hard to Hit. Anytime the creature has a missle fired or thrown at it, or is exposed to shrapnel, it has a chance equal to its POW x8 of being missed completely by any attack that is less than an 01 Critical success. In the case of an 01 Critical success occuring, it will affect the creature as a normal Critical Hit, however.

04 Name: Marko Perälä
Ghostly to (substance) Creature acts is like air to the substance. Broo ghostly to wood could walk through a forest unhindered. Burglaries would be easy. Creatures ghostly to earth or stone are not seen often.

05 Name: Peter Maranci
Radiates Fear. All creatures within 15m of this horrifying creature must make a successful resistance roll of their INT vs their own POW or flee

06 Name: PM Radiates Pain. All creatures within 15m of this creature must make a successful resistance roll of their INT vs their own CON or suffer a -1d100 to all actions

07 Name: PM The creature shrivels and becomes a large rubbery ball of protoplasm which spends all of its time bouncing up and down (-10% to hit because of movement). It has 100 HP, and regenerates 10 HP per round. Once a day it can let out an explosive effect which does 5d6 damage to everything within a 8 meter radius. Armor protects against the explosion damage

08 Name: PM Anything this creature touches becomes invisible for as long as it remains in contact. It always appears to be naked and weaponless. It may also appear to have the power to disintegrate by touch...

09 Name: PM The Stupifier - Any creature within 30m of creature temporarily
loses 1d6 INT

10 Name: PM Damage Reflector: Any damage caused by any non-natural weapon (incuding spells) is ignored, and instead inflicted immediately on the attacker. The damage "reflected" is based on what would get through the defender's armor, not the attacker's. Natural weapons cause normal damage. A Heal spell causes damage equal to double the points in the spell, and cannot be resisted - but is still a touch-only spell.

11 Name: PM Negative Lifeform: Any form of damage (including natural weapons) INCREASES the victim's general (and therefore also location-specific) hit points. They can absorb additional HPs up to ten times their normal value. These hit points may be self-inflicted; for example, the creature may stand in a fire to quickly charge themselves to maximum life-energy. However, if not injured the creature normally loses 1d3 hit points per day, down to (potentially) death. Healing spells are dangerous to this creature; each point of Healing causes 100 HP of damage.

12 Name: PM If anyone orders the victim to do something three times in a row, they must do it

13 Name: PM One finger/tendril/whatever is a hollow tube which can spray a sleep gas with POT = CON, enough to affect up to 3d6 individuals per day

283 Name: PM Victim's INT doubles, but they lose all feeling and emotion. This results in the immediate halving of all artistic and interpersonal skills, including sing, play instrument, dance, Fast Talk, Orate, and Human Lore

284 Name: PM All of the victim's digits divide lengthwise; if it previously had ten fingers, it now has twenty, ten on each hand (and ten toes on each foot, as well). This adds 1d6 x 5% to the victim's Manipulation bonus. Of course, anyone who sees their digits will be repulsed and horrified

285 Name: PM Pain in one limb causes twice as much pleasure in the opposite limb. Example: a thorn in left hand results in extremely pleasant feelings in right hand

286 Name: PM Victim must go through any door which opens within their view. Even if going through means instant death, they are unable to resist passing through any portal which opens before them. They can, if able, turn and go back through the door once through, but this will at a minimum take one round

287 Name: PM 1 random hit location of victim becomes self-aware (in the case of a player-character, the part becomes an NPC). If the head is rolled, some specific part of the head becomes independent: hair, nose, ears, eyes...something.

288 Name: PM Creature begins to exude a mildly pleasant-smelling yellow goo from elbows which heals 1d4 points of specific or general damage per dose if swallowed. Produces 1 dose per hour per elbow.

289 Name: PM In combat, creature makes at least one secretly spectral wound against every enemy. Whether the chaos creature lives or dies, their victims' wound(s) will become infected, and no matter what the treatment the wound will slowly spread. The result is pain and disability, over time.

However, the wound is only imaginary. It can be cured by a Dispel Illusion (xd3), Dispel Magic (xd6), or by overcoming the victim in a combat situation with a Fanaticism spell -- or any spell that seriously alters the victim's mental state in a positive way.

290 Name: PM Creature's fingernails/claws/talons turn orange and become delicious. Anyone within two meters of the creature must roll (CON + INT/2) vs. hours since they've last eaten or become ravenously hungry

291 Name: Trevor Ellis
Severe constipation for several hours after eating. All manipulation skills at -25%

292 Name: Janne Hämeenaho
Creature loses all credibility. Whatever he/she says is automatically considered to be a lie.

293 Name: Tuomas Hautakangas
Endless Banana. This iten looks like a normal banana but if you eat it and throw it's peel of it will reappear in your bag - endlessly and always ready to be eaten. The only way to destroy this annoying banana is to burn it to ashes.

293 Name: Carl Driskell Chicken Broo spits eggs that give random feature to target plus 2d6 damage.

294 Name: PM Creature hair/fur turns a random color

295 Name: PM Creature becomes permanently insane (use CoC tables)

296 Name: Peter Maranci Reverse normal sleep pattern: day becomes night to them and vice-versa
