Gnarled and savage humanoids, rapeks are short and scrawny with calloused, roughened flesh and narrow tusks jutting from their low-slung jaws. More disturbing are the uncountable bone hooks, dense as steel and needle-sharp, that cover their bodies. Rapeks travel in swarms, attacking anything that looks like a suitable victim for robbery or eating. They strike with their barbed hands for 1-4 hit points per fist. A victim struck by both fists is caught by the hooks and is automaticly damaged each round until freed by a successful Strength check.

A tribe of rapeks is led by a female chieftain of 2+2 Hit Dice and more plate-like barbs for an Armour Class of 2. The chieftain is served by attendants of mutated stock, 1+3 Hit Dice and bearing long spurs of bone on their forearms that cause 1-6/1-6 hit points of damage.

Sweet. You could combine them in bizarre rivalry/alliance with Hidden Ones, for maximum weirdness? ;3

Damn. I need to write up my runt iterations of "weird crawly humanoids" ...
