Type: Poisonous arachnid
Planet of Origin: Neftali
Poisonous Bite: Beings
bitten by a crynoid
suffer 4D damage (roll
every five minutes for
one hour). If the victim
survives the potent
venom, he or she must
make a Difficult stamina
roll to withstand the
extreme pain – failing
the roll means the victim suffers a -3D penalty to all actions
for the next six hours. A Moderate first aid roll when using
a medpac can neutralize the poison, but there is no remedy
for the pain.

Crown of Silk
Type: Tiny Force-using airborne parasite
Planet of Origin: Cerea
Hide 8D, search 2D
Brawling: bite 1D+2
Blindsight: Using its connection to the Force, the crown of
silk maneuvers and fights as well as a sighted creature.
Concealment, invisibility and darkness are irrelevant. This
ability has a range of 20 meters.
Camouflage: The crown of silk blends in with its
surroundings, granting a +2 bonus to hide in darkness,
shadow, twilight, or other low-light conditions.
Poison: Crowns of silk keep their victims docile by releasing
a poison specifically designed to disable and weaken
their prey. If a victim is bitten, he must succeed in a
Moderate stamina roll or suffer a temporary -1D penalty to
STRENGTH. One minute later, another Moderate stamina
roll must be made. If it fails, the victim suffers a temporary
-1D penalty to Perception and suffers a euphoric effect,
leaving them stunned for 1D hours.
Parasitic Attack: If the poison attack is successful and the
victim is stunned, the crown proceeds to draw sustenance
from its prey. It firmly attaches to the head, inserting
anchoring tendrils at the temples of the victim, and then
inflicts a temporary penalty to Perception at the rate of -1
per hour. After 1D hours, when the crown has drained all
it can, it takes on a phosphorescent glow. It then releases
the victim and takes to the air, splitting off a new crown in
Removing a crown silk requires caution. Simply pulling
one off can inflict a permanent -2 Perception penalty to
the crown’s victim, due to the depth to which the anchors
penetrate the skull. Crowns are frail and fear heat or fire.
Any damage caused by these sources will cause it to release

Poisonous: The venom of a corrupted snake is similar to
Sith poison, with the exception that only a single willpower

subdued corrupted snake, but requires a Difficult beast
riding (or similar animal-handling) skill roll. For each five

additional dose of venom is extracted. A complication on this
roll indicates that the would-be milker has been bitten.

itself can be heard much further away, but it doesn’t do

Poison Spines: Clawbird poisonous spines do STR+1
damage and inject a slow-acting poison into a target.
Consider the poison to have a paralysis intensity of 3D (the
victim must roll Strength or stamina to resist the poison).
The intensity of the poison increases by +1D for each hour,
up to a maximum of 6D; the poison can be counteracted
by medicines found in any medpac. When rolling for the
poison, if the poison beats the character’s roll by 0-3 points,
the character is tunned (as per page 62 of Star Wars, Second
Edition). If the poison beats the character by 4-9 points,
the character is paralyzed and is incapable of voluntary
movement. If the roll beats the character’s resistance roll
by 10 or more points, the character becomes mortally
wounded, and if the roll beats the character by 15 or more
points, the character dies.
