Earthdawn 4E: Anatomy of a Horror 04 - Jehuthras

This is the fourth 4E Anatomy of a Horror, an ongoing series about Earthdawn Fourth Edition. Introduction and Index.

Everything contained here is the work of a fan and not associated with FASA Games.

There was a request for some less powerful Horrors constructs, specifically jehuthras, to throw at lower Circle characters. This is part of a very slow moving plan to ultimately update the encounters in adventures from previous editions for 4E. A variety are presented so the gamemaster can choose the difficulty they want and provide more options for encounter building in general.
