Starflight (Su)

A vacuum tardigrade can survive in the void of outer space. It flies through space at incredible speeds.

Although exact travel times vary, a trip within a single solar system normally takes 3d20 hours, while a trip beyond normally takes 3d20 days (or more, at the GM’s discretion)—provided the tardigrade knows the way to its destination.


Environment any vacuum
Organization solitary

Vacuum tardigrades are jet black, including their claws and fangs. Light reflects poorly off their bodies as they travel the universe, often lurking in asteroid fields to attack passing vessels.
