    I think this is what Zeta Kai was asking for:

    Some base slaadi are less affected by the Anathema than others. These slaadi may occasionally pick up chaotic variations.

    A base slaadi may pick up one chaotic variation for evey 3 HD. Roll on the following table and add +1 to the roll for each previous chaotic variation.

    Table: Chaotic Variations for Base Slaadi (1d20)
    {table=head]Roll|Variation Scale

    |
    No variation

    [/table]

    If a paragon variation is rolled, that slaad may no longer acquire another paragon variation. Treat rolls of 21+ as "Roll twice with a -1 penalty."

    D'oi. Zeta Kai: I'm an idiot. You're referring to applying Chaotic Variances to base slaadi (Red, Blue et. al) aren't you?

    There will be a table regarding that, yes.

    Cephalovampiroid immediately following Chiropteroid was what tipped me off.

    Yeah, that was a big red neon shenanigan. Also the one I woke up to.

    I could have done SO much worse, though. Cephalohemophagoid, for instance.

    Whale is cetaceo-

    Octopus is cephalo-

    I'm very bad for this sort of thing. I did a taxonomy for a Metroid.

    Could be worse; I was going to go for Encephalophagoid.

    Props if you get that one.

    Well, yes, but I was going for the direct translation since I wasn't sure of my roots. If I had been wrong and said something like "Enchilada Flayer" you would have looked at me funny.

    AstralFire, I don't think I get the right to look at people funny. I proposed a Tamale card for Fax's Cartomancer and used the word Cephalovampiroid. In anything. It's basically unforgivable.

    And DracoDei: I had to start pulling stuff out of thin air at some point, but the summary came to:

    {table=head]Rank|Classification
    Domain|Eukaryota
    Kingdom|Animalia
    Phylum|Cnidaria
    Class|Scyphozoa
    Order|Corontae
    Family|Avius
    Genus|Metroides
    Species|Vitophages
    [/table]

    As you no doubt guessed, text in blue is where I started being ... creative.

    We can always use more Outsiders, and Slaadi have got to be the most awesome that there is. These are particularly interesting variants. I wish there was a Slaadi who based himself on jumping though.

    Also, its time to think about Yeth Hounds in a whole new way

    Add the Tauric and Elastic Tensors variations to the slaad of your choice. Gives it +4 to Jump, plus Rake and Pounce for charges and extra speed for Spring Attacks.

    Otherwise, I'm not really sure what you'd be looking for. Literally a giant frog?

    But thanks for the compliment!

    Considering that the species originated on the planet SR388, the use of Earth-based taxonomy may not be appropriate. That said, I like what you've done. I could take issue with the use of an "avian" family, but the cnidarian phylum is probably spot-on.

    I quite agree, but using Megakingdom Xenos would take all the fun out of it.

    And unfortunately, declaring a flying classification had to be done before the genus level. I actually should have done it at the Order level, but again, not as fun.

    Edit: I cannot believe I am debating fictional taxonomy.

    Okay, so I've determined that you can get some seriously messed-up Slaadish using the Chaotic variations. I got a tauric Slaadish with two serpentine tails, which is pretty bizarre.

    Anyone have any input on the Slaadish (or the colored slaad)?

    Sheesh, I leave for an evening, and you all turn the Slaad thread into a Metriod classification argument. This really IS Chaotic!

    Also, I'd agree with that assessment afroakuma, the Slaadish can be pretty damned strange. For example, I rolled up a Greater Slaadish with these results:
    -Gender: Independent Budding
    -Color: Azure
    -Paragon: Necroid
    -Minors: Sociable, Thick-Veined Face (x2, and with Necroid... o.O), Nyctating Membranes
    -Moderates: Bisecting Jaw, Scabrous Tissues, Oxygenic
    -Majors: Puny, Tentacle

    Ok, so this produced a skeletal azure budding mostly-dead-looking acidic small slaadish with a tentacle and thick-veining on its face. Oh, but hey! It's sociable.

    Yeah... this table is highly entertaining!

    As for the colored slaadi, they seem fine. Here's a question though, one I didn't see answered anywhere (though I may have missed it): how does one determine the gender of the already printed slaadi and the new colored slaadi? Randomly, as for the slaadish, or don't determine it at all and they are simply pre-set?

    You could pick a gender or use the random gender table. I would suggest, however (and this will appear in the later fluff post) that HCP be reserved to red and blue slaadi.

    Your slaadish is an emaciated azure-black skeletal creature with pronounced varicose veins webbed liberally over its skull. Its eyes are black gel with pinpricks of azure light, bound by a folding membrane. The few tissues it has ooze and pulsate, letting flow a thin sap that repairs bone and flesh damage. Its jaw is bisected, its mouth and claws drip a thin acid and it has a single dessicated bony tentacle. As for Sociable: why wouldn't it be? It's freaking cool-looking!

    I merely found it an... interesting combination. Not good, not bad, just interesting. One of those "woah... crazy table is crazy" sorta moments.

    Also, you are a much better fluffer than I will ever be.

    As for the gender pick, I realized the fluff post would probably answer my question (and similar ones) about a minute after I posted. Silly me. >_>

    My poor slaad thread... first it gets turned into a lambasting of scientific word construction, then a discussion of cryptozoological biology and now this.

    And yeah, it made for a very interesting combination. That's probably one of the creepier slaad you'll ever see. I'm just glad you can't add Cephalovampiroid to it. Or can you?!

    On a darker note: do I want to see that guy bud? Seriosuly, would it bud off a new skeleton or...

    I seem to have rolled up a slaad catgirl:

    FSR red greater slaadish

    Paragon: Multipedal
    Minor: Savvy, Cylindrical Ears, Silken Soles, Nyctatating Membranes
    Medium: Pyrogenic, Poisonous Fangs
    Major: Spare Mouth, Metallic Scales

    Alright, it was a catgirl until the major traits.
