Psi-Snakes from Outer Space, an encounter


PDF Here is an encounter I wrote but ended up not using, so figured I'd throw it out there maybe someone can use it. Enjoy!

On a cold and lonely night, a bright light is seen streaking across the sky over a small village.

What the villages saw as a shooting star is, in actuality, an alien spacecraft. A group of alien hunters have come looking for slaves. The aliens are reptilians with psionic abilities and advanced tech. They have come for human slaves and will march toward the closest village and begin rounding up peasants.

 The PCs just happen to be in the village on this fateful night, either locals or just spending the night during their travels.

 Battle Armor 

All of the Psi-Snakes are wearing Battle Armor. It is designed for their large snaky bodies and cannot be worn by anyone else.

Last Resort 

If things start going badly for the Psi-Snakes, they will unleash their last resort, the Earwig. The Earwig is a giant mutated creature which the Psi-Snakes keep in an agitated state. It will be hungry, pissed, and out of control attacking anyone in the area, including its masters.
