The Xenomorph is a terrifying alien species bent on flooding the galaxy with their kind.

Their primary means of attack include their two claws (1d8+1 damage each) and their tail which ends with a slashing blade (1d12+3 damage). They can also bite for 1d10 damage, and on a natural 20, the phallic-like proboscis inside the Xenomorph’s mouth thrusts outward, doing an addition 2d10 damage and bursting through the victim’s face and skull if the victim is reduced to 0 hit points or less.

Xenomorph’s are immune to acid. Furthermore, once every twelve hours they can spit acid at a target for 1d8 damage (range 20 feet). The target must save versus breath weapon or be permanently blinded. Even so, the acid is highly corrosive and can continue eating way for another 1d8 damage per round for another 1d4+2 rounds.

A Xenomorph takes half-damage from blunt weapons. Piercing of slashing weapons do normal damage, but have a 50% of releasing the acid beneath the Xenomorph’s skin—spraying those in melee combat for 1d8 damage and ruining their weapons unless they save versus breath weapon.

This entry is for the standard “warrior” Xenomorph. Other varieties are known to exist such as the Queen and the Facehugger.

Xenomorphs don’t horde treasure. They seem to live to only propagate their species.
