Half-Malboros are not generally social beings, for good reason. Be it their scary appearance, terrible smell, lack of charisma, or dull intellect, they seem more monstrous than anything.

Half-Malboros are born from a terrible process. Generally new malboros are born when malboro spores burrow into a warm dead body and grow from there. However the spores may burrow in early to a body which has shut down but not completely died. On the brink, the spores populate the body and revitalize it with new mind, purpose, and motion.

Regardless of the base creature, the half-malboro appears to be a humanoid who has been charred with acid burns. These wounds have been healed over with green plant-like scar tissue, giving them a mottled appearance. Their eyes have become glassy and weak, and their foreheads are crowned with an almost beholder-like array of eyestalks. Their mouths have become bigger, filled with sharp teeth and acid drool, their limbs seem oddly flexible and elongated, and last but not least, they smell horrible.

Half-MalboroEdit

Summary::The life cycle of the malboro is a gross one. And sometimes it screws up, producing a horrid-half breed, part humanoid, part plant, and just as foul as a malboro can be.

PersonalityEdit

Half-malboros are not generally social beings, for good reason. Be it their scary appearance, terrible smell, lack of charisma, or dull intellect, they seem more monstrous than anything. As such half-malboros are usually concerned with only their base needs.. hunger, thirst... with little care beyond this.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Half-malboros are born from a terrible process. Generally new malboros are born when malboro spores burrow into a warm dead body and grow from there. However the spores may burrow in early to a body which has shut down but not completely died. On the brink, the spores populate the body and revitalize it with new mind, purpose, and motion.

Regardless of the base creature, the half-malboro appears to be a humanoid who has been charred with acid burns. These wounds have been healed over with green plant-like scar tissue, giving them a mottled appearance. Their eyes have become glassy and weak, and their foreheads are crowned with an almost beholder-like array of eyestalks. Their mouths have become bigger, filled with sharp teeth and acid drool, their limbs seem oddly flexible and elongated, and last but not least, they smell horrible.

Half-malboros are usually medium, but rarely a gnome or halfling becomes converted, resulting in a small half-malboro. These half-malboros have an additional -2 Str, +2 Dex, and -10 ft. land speed applied.

RelationsEdit

Due to their horrid appearance and behavior, half-malboros are rarely accepted in the world, and it is returned in kind. As such, not many half-malboros walk the path of goodness.

AlignmentEdit

Due to their outcast nature the half-malboro is likely to become evil. Beyond that, true neutral half-malboros are the next likely. Good half-malboros are rare.

LandsEdit

Half-malboros like places of filth most of all. A warm, wet, stinky cesspool fits right at home with them, as well as covers their own stench in something more powerful.

ReligionEdit

Half-malboros have no religious tradition, but those that do often find home with gods of nature, due to their plant-based existence.

LanguageEdit

Half-malboros speak Common and Malboro, a language of bubbles, burps, grunts, and various foul oders.

NamesEdit

Half-malboros have little need for names, but sometimes recall their former names and lives. Fragments of memories, while they never persist strongly, sometimes shape the half-malboro's mindset.
