A friend posed this question to me:
"Do you know of any stats for the Graboids, Sherkers and ABs from the Tremors movies ? I was hoping to do a Sidewinder game with them as a one shot, and I need stats (D20 Modern)"

Didn't someone create one of them for Krishnath's March Move Monster Madness (or any other order)? I actually believe it was Erica...?

Graboids are large, carnivorous worm-like creature that live in desert areas. They can sense the location of anything moving on top of the ground.

A graboid appears as a roughly 30 foot long worm like creature. A graboid's body is studded with small dark spikes which it uses to move through the ground.

A graboids head is composed of three pronged pincing claws that shelter four snake-like tentacles. These tentacles are about as thick as a man's arm, and have a small mouth of fangs on the end. Graboids grapple food with these and pull it into it's mouth, which is an orangeish color and

Combat

Graboids eat anything that causes vibrations. A graboid goes after the largest sources of vibration first, as they are larger prey.

Graboids can be tricked into eating harmful objects or running into underground stone barriers.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the graboid must hit an opponent of up to Medium-size with two of its tentacles. If
it gets a hold, it can bite or swallow its prey.

Swallow Whole (Ex): By making a successful grapple check, a graboid can swallow a grabbed opponent of Medium-size or smaller.

Once inside, the creature takes 2d8+2 points of crushing damage plus 6 points of acid damage per round from the graboid’s
digestive juices.

A swallowed creature can climb out of the graboid with a successful grapple check. This returns it to the graboid’s maw where another successful grapple check is needed to get free.

A swallowed creature can also cut its way out by using claws or a Small or Tiny slashing weapon to deal 15 points of damage
to the gizzard (AC 20).

Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must again cut
its own way out. The graboid’s stomach can hold one Medium-size, two Small, four Tiny, eight Diminutive, or sixteen Fine or
smaller opponents.


Burrow (Ex): A graboid can glide through sand, loose soil or almost any sort of loosely packed earth (except rock or stone)
as easily as a fish swims through water.

Its burrowing leaves behind no tunnel or hole, however, dust, sand or other loose materials on the surface above he graboid
may be disturbed by the graboid's movement, if the graboid is within 5 feet of the surface.

A move earth spell cast on an area containing a burrowing graboid flings the graboid back 30 feet, stunning the creature
for 1 round unless it succeeds at a Fortitude save.

Tremorsense (Ex): A graboid can automatically sense the location of anything within 120 feet that is in contact with the ground.

What has just burst from the ground resembles a maggot over twenty foot in length and bloated around the middle. It’s head is festooned with three pincer like tusk-teeth, that snap angrily.

Good stuff. I'll be using this in my D20 Modern Sliders/Tangents game. Any chance of seeing a writeup of the other tremors (shrieker and assblasters) criiters?
