Outpost Apocalypse: Carcassman for Savage Worlds and the Wasted West

Often mislabeled as spiders, these predators are unsettlingly widespread throughout the Wasted West. 
 Through an unknown process, roughly 7% of any carcass within the wastelands are implanted with an egg and over an unknown period of time consumes the organs of the body and sprouts eight legs from the remains.  This terrifying creature then begins to hunt for it's next meal, its exoskeleton comprised of its unfortunate victim, possibly a dead dog, raccoon, mutant or even a bear with spider legs jammed through the remains. 

Biologists within the Institute have noted that it's anatomy, hidden within the exoskeleton is strikingly similar to a harvestman, hence the choice of name.
