Creature of Primal Chaos Template (CR +2)

Creatures of primal chaos are the result of the powers of Entropy tampering with a creature’s body to create even more chaos and change. Such creatures are bizarre in appearance, appearing rubbery or unnaturally flexible, sprouting scores of tiny, writhing tentacles which sometimes end in eyes or mouths, or have extra limb joints, staring fish eyes, emaciated bodies, spiked spines, numerous curling horns, bat wing-like ears or frills, or any number of other strange features. Creatures of primal chaos often wear a permanent expression of insanity or rage. Most normal animals shun creatures of primal chaos or are immediately hostile to them.
