    King Snurre's precious pets...

    I came up with this to include in my D&D 3.5 update for the Against The Giants module.

    (My other creation/addition is here.)


    I was very pleased with how well it met my expectations and may try to write a touch of an ecology for it, at some point.

    Regardless, I hope you enjoy it!

    Challenge Rating: 8
    Treasure: None
    Alignment: Always neutral
    Advancement: 816 HD (Large); 1721 HD (Huge)
    Level Adjustment:


    This giant boar has an arched back as high as a human is tall. It has spiny armor on its back and each of its three heads; great, gleaming tusks; and small, furious, demonic eyes. The coloration of its fur is a sinister blend of deep, rusty red and coal black.


    While both the common boar and dire boar are known to be foul-tempered and possessed of an overall surliness, Hellfurnace Razorbacks are, with absolute certainty, hateful and violent. Although omnivorous like its kin, Hellfurnace Razorbacks prefer to feed on flesh; their razor-sharp tusks and keen eyesight make it an extremely effective predator. Hellfurnace Razorbacks are extremely willing to attack smaller creatures they encounter whilst searching for easier meals or those whom misfortune brings into their territory. They grow up to 13 feet long and weigh as much as 2,100 pounds.


    Combat
    A Helltempered Razorback charges its opponent, trying to rip the target open with its tusks.

    Furnace Belch (Su): Helltempered Razorbacks can breathe jets of fire 10 feet high, 10 feet wide, and 20 feet long. All heads breathe once every 1d4 rounds, and each jet deals 3d6 points of fire damage per head. A successful Reflex save (DC 16) halves the damage.

    Ferocity (Ex): A Helltempered Razorback is such a tenacious combatant that it continues to fight without penalty even while disabled or dying.

    Fire Subtype (Ex): Helltempered Razorbacks are immune to fire damage and take a 10 penalty on saves against cold attacks. If a cold attack does not allow a saving throw, the creatures take double damage instead.


    Note: While its DEX is too low to have Combat Reflexes grant it a number of additional attacks, it may still make attacks of opportunity while flat-footed.

    That's a very nice addition to the Hall of the Fire Giant King, DrassustheGaunt. I will certainly add it to my version of the module when my campaign reaches that point. Smile

    Many thanks, Sir Xaris. Smile

    Be sure to let me know how it works out for you; I'd really be interested.

    I'm throwing together a paragraph or two in my head to touch on its ecology, ever so slightly.

    I'll put it in this thread so as to get further input.

    Like it. The Hill Giants had their kennel of dire wolves, the Frost Giant Jarl had his polar bear, and now you have given Snurre a worthy pet of his own.

    Many thanks, ABB.

    That was very much my goal.
