Aliens and Enemies

The following alien creatures, robots, and NPCs are ready for use as allies or adversaries in your games. You can even use them as a starting place for modification with the Templates listed earlier.

You’ll note that most of these stat blocks have Vulnerabilities.

This replaces ability scores and saves as the primary source of weakness in a foe. Characters who investigate their enemies, have technical schematics of vehicles, or are simply observant in combat may pick up on what makes an NPC tick. Vulnerabilities also serve to simulate the inherent and often dramatic flaws in any complex technical system.
