Grab It Right Over
Need something really nasty for a swamp or other semi aquatic location? A monster that will offer some real bite and come back for more? Something that will leave the bleached bones and relics of your adventurers lying in the muck and mire? The back hatcher is perfect for your old school post apocalytic games when a mid level monster is needed.

What’s that squishy popping sound?
Walking anywhere in the wastelands of The Mutant Epoch is always risky, but swamps pose a whole new level of peril. That squishy patch of ground your character just walked onto wasn't as safe a step as it looked, and with a squeal, a popping noise and the flash of piranha-like teeth, you’re PC just encountered a brood of clingers freshly jettisoned from a Back Hatcher!
Created by Brandon Goeringer, this new Creature of the Apocalypse is number seven in the lineup of free monsters for The Mutant Epoch post-apocalyptic RPG. Get this 6 page PDF which includes stats for both the adult and clinger variants of this terrible new creature. The document includes a random mutation listing and robust, multi use d100 loot table for items left behind by previous victims of the dreaded Back Hatcher. Also included is a full page player handout view of the image from the cover, but without the cover text so you, the GM, can hold it up and say “This is what you’re mutant just stepped on!”
Although crafted for The Mutant Epoch role-playing game, using the Outland System Game Mechanic, a GM can easily modify the stats for the Back Hatcher and use the beast with another post-apocalyptic game system.
This isn't a badly done monster at all, the additional mutations, ideas, and ecology is well laid out here and this monster is easily dovetailed into your post apocalyptic Mutant Epoch rpg campaign or any old school game. Since its free its a no brainer that this one can appear not only in Mutant Epoch but any number of post apocalyptic DYI campaigns.
