Machinations of the Space Princess - S3 Conversion Part 1

So a couple weeks ago I posted that it would be fun to run a Machinations of the Space Princess game as a n exploration mission to recover a lost science vessel. This excursion would be to the downed spacecraft on a backwater planet that had a high psion population, however, they think it's 'MAGIC'...

So instead of a lost science vessel, the sleazy gits will find info on an Exo vessel...the cargo could be priceless. First they're going to have to locate the exact location and then brave the vessel....encountering all the nasty critters onboard.

So I will be creating an entire adventure over time, INSPIRED by S3, but not fully S3, I will recreate the maps in AutoCAD and eventually have a complete adventure. But in the meantime, I need to start slow...so here's the first Monster for ES3 - Excursion to the Broken Peaks


Fungusfiends (These would take the place of the vegepygmies from S3.)
First I will start off by analyzing the original creature.

Plant creature that is a meat eating hunter and scavengers. Piercing weapons only do half damage. Electrical attacks do no damage. OK that's a bit odd for Machinations mobs...so I'm going to use the following traits to represent them. Their coloration allows them to surprise 50% of the time
Fungal (No Vitals) Half Hit Points, only 1 pt of damage from physical attacks, normal from energy.
Hunter (Warrior) +1 close and ranged attacks.
Scavenger (Tough) Increase Toughness Save score by +2
They range in Hit Dice from 1-6. As hunters we will consider them 'trained' so 3 hit dice
