Animal Lore (Monsters or Wild Animals)

  • QL 1: saber-toothed tigers usually hunt alone and prey on humans who enter their territory.
  • QL 2: saber-toothed tigers are especially dangerous because they do not hesitate to attack prey outside of their territories. Even though they are solitary, they gather in small hunting groups in lean times.
  • QL 3+: saber-toothed tigers can drag prey away (see special rule Drag Prey Away).

Special Rules

Drag Prey Away: when a saber-toothed tiger kills or incapacitates its prey, it drags the body to a safe place (such as a cave or even up a tree that it can climb). In such situations, it only drops its prey when badly wounded (reduced to less than 25% of its LP). While dragging prey, the tiger is very slow (MOV 4).
