TRAITS

Armor-Piercing Bite: Armor-piercing Bite: The bony ridges that a leucrotta has for teeth can chew through metal or wood. When a leucrotta scores a critical hit with its bite attack, the target’s armor or shield (GM’s choice), if any, loses one point of armor protection; e.g., a damaged shield provides just one point of AC instead of two, or a chain shirt provides AC 12 + Dex mod instead of AC 13 + Dex mod. This damage is cumulative, but it can be repaired by an armorer for 20% of the armor or shield’s new cost per critical hit inflicted on it. Magical properties continue to function while the armor or shield is damaged.

Kicking Retreat: When a leucrotta turns to flee, it instinctively kicks with both rear legs as a bonus action before racing away. The leucrotta still provokes an opportunity attack when it leaves a character’s reach.

Mimic Voice: A leucrotta can mimic the voice of a man, woman, child, or a domestic animal in pain. This is often used to lure a victim into attack range. To mimic a voice, the leucrotta must make a Cha (Deception) check opposed by the passive Wis (Perception) of any listeners. Characters who expressly try to determine whether the sound is mimicry can make an active Wis (Perception) check instead.


ECOLOGY

Environment: Temperate or tropical or

Organization: Solitary, pair, or pack (3–12)

A leucrotta is a horrible, unbearably ugly beast. It has the body of a stag, the head of a badger, and a leonine tail. It has bony, yellow-gray ridges for teeth and burning, feral red eyes. Their bodies are tan, darkening to black at the head. The stench of rotting corpses surrounds the beast, and its breath reeks of the grave. A full-sized male can reach seven feet tall at the shoulder, though they average six feet. Other animals shun this foul creature.

Leucrotta are intelligent and speak their own language. They are evil and malicious. Because of their mountain goat-like surefootedness, leucrotta normally make their lairs in treacherous, rocky crags accessible only to them.
