    Re: Chronicle Creatures - Mountain Terrors series begins!

    It's that time of the week again!

    Legends say that there is something both horrible and hungry that lives in the mountain peaks. Those who have seen it and escaped suggest that its body remains unseen, although its shadow suggests a carrion bird of great size and two heads. Most who have seen it, however, have not lived to tell that tale.

        Indeed it is!

        Dangerous horrors of the highlands, mountain trolls are near-human creatures that live - and hunt - in packs. Aggressive and violent, they have been the death of many a traveling party over the years. Beware the troll-infested demenses of these monsters, for it is almost surely death to enter them.

          And the one that dropped while I was away at GenCon!

          Dwelling in the foothills and lower mountain reaches, jumping foxes are larger than other foxes. Though they are not normally a danger to people, they can be fiercely protective of their young. Some folk have taken advantage of their predatory nature and lack of fear around humans to train them as hunting companions.

            Do any of these include the extra rules you were crowdsourcing in this thread, or has that yet to be finished?

              They do not, no. That thread was for a future product that will be part of the A Song of Ice & Fire Roleplaying line proper. These are just critters.

                Mountain Terrors Tuesday!

                In the mountain heights hunts the needle roc. Much larger than its smaller eagle cousin, the needle roc is a raptor with a particularly distinctive hunting style: it flies past prey and threats alike, popping the viciously hooked quills along its wings to eviscerate those unlucky enough to have earned its ire. Between its large size, viciously hooked talons and twelve-foot quilled wingspan, this beast is a terror to watch out for.

                  It's that day of the week once more! We're nearing an end to the Mountain Terrors series here.

                  Quiet alpine snow fields may occasionally be disturbed by strange protrusions in sinuous lines, as though something had passed beneath the snow without breaking the surface. The wise know this to be a sign of dangerous snow eels, and take precautions against the electrifying terrors that have been known to shock both man and horse in order to feed on the stunned victims.

                    Missed it by a day. Sorry about that!

                    Leaping from impossible perch to seemingly sheer cliff is the stonehorn, a mighty beast that is to goats what dire wolves are to normal wolves. These four-horned, pony-sized animals reach the highest of peaks and consume the salt and other minerals they crave imbedded in the stone of the mountains. Though they are not predatory, they do not hesitate to defend their territory and their young with vicious stone horns completely infused with the minerals they consume.

                      Not all the predatory dangers of the mountains are beasts and animals. The tripper root grows along narrow paths and beside sheer cliffs, waiting for prey to come stumbling through its ground-covering vines. The tripper root then reacts with whip-like precision, snagging men and beast alike and hurling them over the side, slamming them into mountain faces to kill and consume them.

                        Apologies if I've missed this, or if it is the wrong thread, but... Where can I find the stats for mammoths and giants as seen in Season 4 of GoT?

                              Am I reading their stats wrong?

                              Giant's seem a bit underpowered to me.

                                Most of these entries have had a brief description, but I can't tell what an Alpinghast is supposed to be...one post seemed to imply it's kind of a yeti. Is that correct? I'm going to be running some adventures north of the Wall, and I want my party to encounter grumkins and snarks, but I don't know what they're going to be yet. I want to see what options Mountain Terrors gives me.
