A Wyndm-wolf grows about 6 feet long and stands about 3-1/2 feet at the shoulder. It weighs about 300 pounds. Wyndm-wolves can speak Fey and all three Wyndm tongues.


Wyndm-wolves typically hunt in packs, and tend to eat creatures smaller than themselves. However, with the colonization of the Wyndm-lands, and thus the introduciton of cattle to the lands, they have acquired a taste for beef and pork. A pack usually circles an opponent, each wolf attacking in turn to exhaust it. When solitary, they usually sneak up on their opponents.

Trip (Ex): A Wyndm-wolf that hits with a bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent (+8 check modifier) as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the Wyndm-wolf.

Skills: Wyndm-wolves have a +1 racial bonus on Listen, Move Silently, and Spot checks. Wyndm-wolves have a +2 racial bonus on Hide checks. *Their natural coloration grants them a +7 racial bonus on Hide checks in forests and mountains. A Wyndm-wolf has a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.
