Mutant Menaces - Holiday Edition '09


In the spirit of the holidays I bring you a terrifying creature that conjures up a mockery of cherished Christmas characters for the far past of the Mutant Future. The picture was found on a crawl across the net looking for a messed up Rudolf, but I couldn't find an artist credit. Whoever they are they did a darned good job.

The Mutant Future is full of strange, wonderous and horrific creatures. The Ray Deer is one of the latter and a most horrible creature indeed. The result of an irradiated and heavily mutated deer, the Ray Deer carries on an eternal existence of death and nuclear fallout which it spreads itself. The Ray Deer has the appearance of a dcomposing deer, moose, elk, or other deer with glowing eyes and a luminous aura that seems to pulse as it feeds and grows expecially bright at the tip of its nose when it emits it's deadly beam

The Ray Deer seems to have mutated into an almost contageous deathly state, a state that it is immune to itself. Living creatures around the Ray Deer wither and die as do plants and as they do, the Ray Deer feeds on the wasted remains. In truth, the Ray Deer can only feed on the irradiated remains of dead fallout victims. Seeking ever-increasing carnage, the Ray Deer moves from place to place withering crops, and destroying settlements all to slake its endless thirst for life nuclear fuel.

Those who come in contact with the Ray Deer are doomed to find themselves warped and mutated by the intense radiations and mutagenic energies coursing through its ever-rotting flesh. Those that survive their encounter will be forever changed, marked by these horrible creatures. The same energies that give the Ray Deer its lethal abilities also seem to keep it functioning, even if living might not be the proper term. When damaged, they seem to have the ability to call on reserves from this power to boost their combat abilities and even restore damage. But even the Ray Deer can be killed, but only with extreme effort.

Ray Deer usually fight with their horns and hoofs, or rely on their deadly field to keep attackers at bay, however if pressed they can focus the deadly radiation they produce into a "death ray" that emits from the end of their nose.

  2. You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blizten but do you recall the old ray deer who torched them all? Zomder the rabid ray deer. Had a very shiny gun. And if you ever saw it you'd drop your pants and run. All of the other ray deer used to laugh and call him names so Zomder torched them and now he laughs at their pathetic lives as they ferret around the fat jolly man while he spreads Christmas cheer by torching the little girl's and boys presents on Christmas.
