Reptiles

Reptiles are unintelligent. Many of them are poisonous. If their attack does effective damage, extra poison damage will result. Some reptiles only do effective damage for armour penetration - if the attack penetrates armour, poison damage will result, but no physical damage from the attack.


Crocodile

Natural Habitat 
Coastal, Wetlands
Frequency 
Common
Number 
1-50 (20)
Description
Description: Crocodiles are heavily scaled lizards with small sharp teeth. They attain lengths of 8 feet, and weights of up to 180 pounds. Giant crocodiles may attain twice this length and ten times this weight, and have 20 more strength and endurance. Their scales are a very dark greenish-brown that blends in well with the muddy water that they love to inhabit.
Comments
Crocodiles often lurk just below the surface of murky waters, waiting for a titbit to enter the water. On land, however, crocodiles are rather timid, and they will slip off into the water if they sense something approaching. If a crocodile's jaws are grasped while they are still closed, it only takes a PS of 12 to hold them closed, rendering the crocodile's bite useless. The crocodile's skin is used to make primitive armour (equal to leather) and the teeth (about 60) are valuable (100 Silver Pennies each) as charms.
Abilities
Crocodiles have no special talents, skills or magic.

Giant Tortoise

Natural Habitat 
Coastal, Wetlands
Frequency 
Rare
Number 
1-30 (6)
Description
Giant tortoises have the form of an ordinary turtle, with a thick green shell and claws instead of webbed digits. They are about 5 feet long, and weigh about 700 pounds.
Comments
Despite their name, tortoises spend much of their time in the water, where they will frequently be found. A tortoise is capable of carrying a large burden (up to 200 lb.) if one is willing to keep a pace that the tortoise can follow.
Abilities
Giant tortoises can withdraw their head, tail, and limbs inside their shell in times of danger. They have no magical or other special abilities. If the tortoise is not withdrawn into its shell, there is an 80% chance that any blow will strike the shell anyway. If the tortoise is inside its shell, the shell will soften all strikes.

Komodo Dragons are large lizards, growing to lengths in excess of ten feet and weighing about 200 pounds. Rare specimens can grow to thrice this size (+10 to EN and PS). They have sharp claws, to disembowel their prey, and sharp teeth.
Comments
They are carnivorous and hunt deer, pig, and smaller lizards. They have been known to attack humanoids but will generally not attack if they are alone and there is a party of more than three. They are apt swimmers and can submerge for periods of up to three minutes if necessary to elude enemies. They generally sleep during the heat of the day hunting in the early mornings and late evenings. They usually live in small caves or thick bush. Like other reptiles, they are cold blooded and will have difficulty surviving in cold weather.
