The big thing with constriction is the squeezing, not so much for damage as for preventing breathing.

 

I think that while there are ways to simulate that kind of thing, the route to go is the extra limb, grab and choke hold.  Obviously the choke is not round the neck, it is, instead, a full body strangle, but it will engage the rules in the same way...

??????????????????

 

Given that a snake has FEWER limbs than the normal allotment, for what reason would it be given the Extra Limbs power?

 

Am I missing something?

ha!  I wasn't thinking straight.  I was not thinking of whether the snake had limbs or not, simply using the extra limb to demonstrate that using its body to constrict a victim would not interfere with the normal use of any other limbs the character might have.

 

I am now wondering how to model a snake with no limbs but able to constrict and hold an opponent...

Hero System Bestiary page 483 has the Constrictor Snake.

The relevant parts are basically:

 

Coils: +15 STR, Only With Grab And Squeeze (-1)

 

and

 

Physical Complication: Very Limited Manipulation (Frequently, Greatly Impairing)
