The cattha is a ten-legged, carnivorous feline native to the highlands of alien worlds. Like many other alien creatures, the cattha is largely hairless, although its head sports a mane of thick, wiry hairs. This deadly predator is both exceptionally strong and quick, using its natural agility and speed to pounce on its prey before it even realizes it is in danger. Catthas are rarely encountered alone, as they form hunting parties of two or more in order to increase their chances of finding food for their voracious appetites.


  1. you forgot
    before a banth attacks
    it lets out a frightful roar
    (save or be surprised)
    that temporarily paralyzes its prey

    (God of Mars , page 34 and
    Thuvia Maid of Mars p.48 . ..
    del rey/ ballantine editions)

  2. I like this one better than the Displacer Beast,

  3. You could take another page from "Thuvia" and have your Alien Noble class be able to "charm monster" the critters as a rare (5% maybe) special ability.

  4. BigFella,

    That's an excellent idea. I may have to include that in my next iteration of the class.
