Coral Horse

Summer is here! To celebrate here at Claw / Claw / Bite ! we're taking a trip to the ocean. Check out the new monster we found!

Coral Horse

These undersea creatures which resemble modern seahorses are made of pure hardened coral, making them resistant to non-bludgeoning attacks.

Coupled with the difficulty of swinging heavy hammers underwater, these make treacherous foes. They are very territorial and attack anything that comes near their home reefs. They merge with the reefs when they sleep and for protection.

These animals look like heavy horses made of coral except their hind legs form a tail. A coral horse can fight while carrying a rider (usually these are coral warhorses), but the rider cannot also attack unless he or she succeeds on an (undersea) Ride check.


These creatures swim very fast, using their mobility to charge predators or lure them away from their nests.
