  1. I love the ideas with these creatures. Though i just see 2 things i would suggest to change. One being the name, i would change the name of the normal Krayt to Canyon Krayt. I would also remove the Borrowing focus. If i recall it was only the greater Krayt who was able to swim through the sand to eat Sarlacs. But i do really like what you did to them. with the sand camo and the tremor sense.

    1. For tremor sense. could also take a idea from Titansgrave monster that use vibrations to see. It made the player roll a willpower self discipline with a TN 11. If they failed they were able to keep still enough meaning the monster new the location of the player. Could do a concept of that so that theirs a chance people can sneak up on it, but not a good chance.
