Monday Mutants 23: Wall Hugger
In The Mutant Epoch era, don’t forget to look up!
Wall huggers, also called wallers, are like a cross between a human sloth and a flying squirrel, but often weigh as much as a full grown man. They’re highly territorial, bad tempered omnivores, often covered in moss and mushrooms and spend much of their lives clinging to the sides of ancient buildings, cliffs, bridge girders and vast hulls of abandoned ships. In most cases, ruin explorers don’t even realize what’s hit them when these hideous sub-human creatures hit them. An impact from a falling waller can knock a person out during its first impact, but to get one of these damn things stuck to your back, raking and biting, can also shorten an excavator’s career.
Still, wall huggers are known to inhabit the same high rise for generations, and carry their half eaten or unconscious victims aloft to stuff in vast bone pits — along with whatever treasure, gear and wondrous relics they wore along with them. It is these macabre troves which many dig teams can’t resist, and which often lead them to their doom.
The Wall Hugger is our 23nd Monday Mutant for The Mutant Epoch (TME) Tabletop RPG. This 11 page PDF includes a short sample adventure ‘The Wall Hugger’s Tower’ for 6 to 8 low rank characters and includes a half page isometric map — although it’s based on a full page hand inked map you can download for free from this product’s page. Also included for this nasty, ambush predator are 8 commonly seen mutations, a 2d12 bone pile discovery table and pages of useful information on this all-new, ‘halibut human’ of the wastes.
Here’s what’s in the PDF:

Visit our social media feeds to say hello and see all new post-apocalyptic monstrosities each Monday until we complete this next dozen to the collection. We’re on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, MeWe.com, as well as Enworld.org and RPG.net to list only a few places. See all these links at our webpage. This is our 23rd of a 24 part series. Once we get to 24 new creatures, we’ll put them, and 6 more surprise muties, in a new bestiary book for all of you who prefer a printed mutant manual at your game table!
As with all Monday Mutants, it’s true that you can rework the wall hugger’s stats for personal use to deploy with another game system, but we all know that these falling freaks cause the most mayhem when powered by the Outland System used by The Mutant Epoch RPG.
