Quick-n-Dirty Creature Creation Dice Drop Table

[EDIT: the table has been updated]

Because Telecanter asked for it, here is a Quick-n-Dirty Creature Creation dice drop table.

I've altered his idea a bit; instead of using colored dice, I've gone for a "drop all the dice" method. Still, this should present some interesting results.

Here's an example from the chart:

The Zewaltyrabhundle
The head looks like a zebra mussel, with a rough-textured, calcified covering. It's difficult to discern exactly how it senses and gets around the dungeon, but it does. Its tough, squat body is covered in dark skin covered with short, wiry, hairs and in truth it sort of resembles a walrus. Its forelimbs are small and fur-covered with strong claws useful for digging, as on a platypus, while its hind limbs are those of a jackrabbit---good for hopping away at high speed or for powerful kicking. The prehensile tail resembles that of a spider monkey, and gives the creature an extra attack. When it barks, it sounds like the sad, strangled cry of a poodle left alone in a loft apartment.

Note to DM: Uses the same basic stat block as the Witherstench (I prefer the original stat block from The Field Folio).
