Special Traits

  • Prominent Deformities. The brute has up to 4 features from the mongrelfolk deformity table (p.79), determined randomly by rolling a d4 and d20 each, or chosen by the GM. Mongrelfolk brutes tend to have more powerful deformities than their common kin. Instead of a d20, roll a d10 and add +10 to the result for the first two features generated. For deformities that mention damage dice, double the number of dice the mongrelfolk brute rolls. For example, a brute with a crablike pincer arm (result 16) rolls 2d8 damage for damage with its claw.


  • Multiattack. The brute makes three attacks: one with its bite, one with its claw, and one with its handaxe.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 9 (2d4 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 9 (2d4 + 4) slashing damage.
  • Handaxe. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one creature. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) piercing damage.


Unfortunate victims of extreme mutations, even by mongrelfolk standards, brutes typically pay for their increased physical power with a marked decrease in higher brain functions.
