In the world of Korgoth of Barbaria, sex with the wrong person can not only be dangerous, it can be deadly. The Whorebeast is one such carnal assassin. When in a calm state, a Whorebeast appears to be any other wasteland denizen, albeit an attractive specimen. (Whorebeasts can be both male and female, although the female of the species is more common.) The creature will approach a victim, disguising its true intent by pretending to feign interest in them sexually, or perhaps claiming to be a prostitute (in seedier villages). Once the Whorebeast and victim have begun their tryst, the Whorebeast's true nature will be exposed.

A Whorebeast feeds on the hormones and pheromones released by a human who has reached a state of overwhelming carnal desire. Once this heightened state of arousal is reached, the Whorebeast's human-appearing head will split open, revealing its true face. A green-scaled visage with six eyes will leer at its victim while a cavernous set of jaws will open. The Whorebeast will attempt to bite off the head of its partner, its jaws rending for 2d12 hit points of damage. If the victim is somehow able to break off the initial attack, the Whorebeast will grab a nearby weapon (a dagger is always close at hand) in an attempt to wound its prey. If the victim is subdued, the Whorebeast's mouth will close in again, ready to feed.

There are rumors that larger nests of Whorebeasts set up in brothels in larger cities. The populace never notices when some of the johns who live in the town disappear. And those who stop by the brothel to ask questions are never heard from again either.

Mutations: aberrant form (giant mouth)

NOTE: This creature was inspired by the post-apocalyptic, sword-and-sorcery cartoon "Korgoth of Barbaria." Let's see how much material a 22-minute pilot can provide us! Stay tuned for future installments of Korgothursday!

  2. Ok, this threw me. So I googled it.

    Which brought me here:

    Which is the FULL pilot episode in HD.

    DUDE! THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME!

    I am now a convert. Please make lots of more these. Lots and lots and lots and lots more.

    And then . . . we can have Thundarr run into Korgoth in a dimensional rift. Oh, man. . .

    1. Yeah, Korgoth would have been an AWESOME series. Pity CN didn't pick it up. All we'll ever have are those heavy metal 22 minutes of ass-kickingness.
