Description & Information: Jelly salamanders are a dull red color, with brown overtones on the underbelly. They grow up to 5 feet long and weigh in at up to 80 lbs. Like their non-mutated cousins, jelly salamanders feed upon insects, fish, amphibians, and crabs and shrimp. The jelly salamander, however, also predates upon large mammals, turning them into a red jelly which is devoured by the salamander over a period of days.

This jelly is quite tasty (kinda like a cherry/raspberry mix) and a powerful, addictive drug when dried and powdered. Consuming more than a gram of red powder adds +1 to Strength, Agility, and Reason. Every consumption has a cumulative 3% chance of addiction. Addiction results in a loss of -1 Strength, Agility, and Reason after not consuming the jelly for more than 3 days. The addiction is broken after a month’s time or after a series of 3 successful rank 12 Fortitude conflicts over a period of 3 days. Red powder is big business below the shattered moon, with syndicates feeding their enemies to the salamanders as a common form of retribution or revenge.

Intrinsic Powers
• Jelly salamanders are tough little buggers, reducing all physical damage by 1 point per hit.
• Jelly salamanders inflict a toxic bite. A successful hit does no damage, but the victim must succeed against a rank 10 Fortitude conflict or be turned into tasty jelly.
