Animal Lore (Monsters or Wild Animals)
- QL 1: Rumors say gorgers can only see their prey if it moves.
- QL 2: Gorgers have poor endurance for hunters. They usually give up on chasing faster prey or opponents after a while. Unfortunately, gorgers are faster than most humans, achaz, and dwarves.
- QL 3+: Gorgers try to kill prey even if sated at the moment. They hang it on trees, to consume at a later date. Trees strung with dead animals are sure signs that a gorger is close.
Do Not Move!: Gorgers have trouble seeing prey that is not moving, and they usually ignore it. Heroes can make a competitive check using Willpower (Resist Threats) against the gorger’s Intimidation. Gorgers ignore heroes who succeed and remain calm. Each time gorgers are deceived that way by the same hero, however, that hero’s check suffers a cumulative penalty of 1.
