Combat

The beastman's unusual ability to camouflage himself in the forest makes him a dangerous hunter or adversary. Although beastmen generally seek to avoid combat (or even contact) with outsiders, they certainly defend themselves and their tribes.

Sometimes beastmen take opponents prisoner rather than kill them. In these cases, a large, weighted net woven from vines and creepers is dropped from above. Prisoners taken with such a net are often stripped of all possessions and then released far from the tribe. If, however, they are judged to be a threat even after this is done, they are put to a painless death.

In combat, beastmen employ a variety of spears, stone axes or knives, bolas, and blowguns.

Poison: Beastman use a special toxin on their blow gun darts, a form of bloodroot poison (DC 14, Initial 0; secondary 1d4 Con + 1d3 Wis).

Skills: In forest environments, where the beastman's dark green and black coloration blends with the foliage, it gains a +15 circumstances bonus to Hide checks.

Blowgun: Simple-weapon ranged, Dmg 1d3, Crit x2, Range 20 ft., Weight 0 lbs, Type Piercing.
