Electric Rays in GURPS

Electric rays, or torpedos, are bottom dwelling rays capable of generating a massive electric jolt. They use these electric pulses to stun prey and ward off predators. They resemble a flatened, oval disk with a finned tail coming off one end. Torpedos spend much of their time resting camouflaged on on muddy or sandy substrates, mostly covered with only the eyes exposed. They detect prey under the sand with their electroreceptive sense, and will opportunistically stun prey that swims overhead. Because of their potent defense, these rays have little fear of predators.

The radio button entries in the table above give realistic sizes of the species of that row. If you want a specimen outside that range, enter the weight in kg manually.

Marking the T? checkbox will give you the stats in template form with all costs listed, otherwise you get a stat sheet as for a character.

Marking the HR? checkbox will print the information using all my house rules. Otherwise, the stats will be as compatable with plain vanilla GURPS as possible (although several custom advantages and disadvantages will be present, see my Traits page).
