Monday Mutants 19: Weed Demon
Famous last words from the wasteland...
“Wait, did that little hill there just move? Let’s check it out.”
“Um, guys. Was that weed patch there when we entered this street before? And… are those skulls underneath it? Let’s look for loot.”
“This junk storm is just gonna get worse. C’mon, boys, let’s take shelter in that mound over there. Yes, the one with all those trees growing on it.”
“Whatchea worrying ‘bout? They’re just green walkers. We’ve mowed our way through a swarm of them before. C’mon, sissy, pull out your axe and let’s do this.”
“I wonder why them skullocks circled way around that clump of trees up there. You’d think they would’ve used it to take cover from Joe’s marksmanship. C’mon, let’s camp there tonight and continue tracking the pesky buggers in the morning.”
In an era where the plants will try to eat you, these nightmarish mutant growths take it a step further and will also absorb their still living human prey. The weed demon can appear in three terrifying forms: the young, green walker-like ‘stalker’, the multi-legged giant ‘trunker’, and finally, their ultimate tree bristling adult form as the ‘mounder’. Each age variety is equipped with the same toxin tipped stabbing limbs and ravenous need for the minerals, liquids and bones of their favored humanoid prey.
The weed demon is our 19th Monday Mutant offering for The Mutant Epoch (TME) Tabletop RPG. This supplement includes stats and art for three size variants of this new, highly aggressive mutant plant; the stalker, the trunker and the massive, hill-like mounder. Within these fierce, fast moving hunters are the remains of past human victims, along with their stuff. We’ve included a massive 1d100 random loot table with this new creature, which offers a wide range of junk, curiosities and treasure that’s tangled within the bone fused roots of these damn things.
Check out our social media feeds to see all new post-apocalyptic monstrosities each Monday until we add this next dozen to the collection. Once we get to 24 muties, we’ll put them, and 6 more surprise freaks, in a new bestiary book for all of you who like a printed mutant manual at your game table!

As with all Monday Mutants, you can mess with the weed demon’s stats for personal use and unleash these leafy predators using another game system. But please note that these flesh-eating veggies operate at their best when absorbing the fluids of player characters deployed in the fast-paced Outland System used by The Mutant Epoch RPG. Learn more about this well supported system by harvesting your free TME Quick Start Rules with the included 42 page adventure ‘Muddy Mayhem’ right here:
