The Cyklop Stormwalker is a large bipedal walker from the universe of Leviathan (by Scott Westerfeld). It is mainly an anti-infantry unit, but the main cannon can be used against heavier foes. In the books, the Cyklop Stormwalker is mobilised by the Austrian military against the allied powers. The Cyklop Stormwalker's armament consists of two MG-08 Spandau Heavy Machine Guns and a 57mm cannon, however, if you want to play this vehicle in a more fantasy based dungeon, it might be more apt to replace the machine guns with heavy mounted crossbows, and the 57mm cannon with a lightning cannon (specifics below).

Lightning Cannon[edit]

  • Mode 1: Scatter Shot:

    • Fires a blast that does 3d10 + 6 lightning damage to one enemy on a hit. The gunner’s Dexterity modifier and proficiency bonus are used for attack rolls.
  • Reloading - The Cannon must go 2 turns without firing to account for loading if there is only one gunner manning the cannon, and 1 turn if there are 2 gunners.

If it does, that creature must make a Dexterity save, DC 12, taking 16 (3d10) bludgeoning damage and being knocked prone on a fail, on a success, the damage is halved and the creature is not knocked prone. If already prone, the creature takes an additional 16 (3d10) bludgeoning damage regardless if the save was a success or a failure. Each creature cannot be targeted more than once per turn.
