Created by an unknown force, mooger are thankfully rare but tend to cause no end of trouble when they cross into settled lands. Their daunting height and bulk, combined with intimidating antlers and vicious teeth, means that mooger are justly feared wherever they appear. Wolf packs fear them and will flee before even a lone mooger often sowing chaos in front of them. Mooger can fold their antlers back, allowing them to pass through relative narrow space, such as doorway, that one would not expect of them and their sure-footed nature allow them to find unusual places to lay in wait for potential prey.

Covets Canine Comestibles (Ex) a mooger will go out of its way to slay and consume canines.

Powerful Charge (Ex) when a mooger successfully attacks with its powerful charge, it makes an immediate trip attack using the same roll. The mooger itself is not tripped if this maneuver fails.

Sharp Teeth (Ex) the teeth of the mooger are exceptionally sharp and cause one point of bleed damage. The mooger gains a +8 bonus to track any creature that was wounded by its bite until they have washed all of the blood off.

Shielding Antlers (Ex) the moogers gains a +2 shield bonus against any enemy melee it can interpose its antlers against.

Sure-footed (Ex) a mooger’s broad, clawed feet are unhindered by any natural difficult terrain.

Remarkable stealthy and sure-footed for their size, the mooger strikes from surprise and messily kills it target to terrify others to flee so it may enjoy its meal in peace. This eldritch fusion of moose and cougar is cunning and deadly. Instinct: To hunt and eat (especially canines)

•Its just a harmless(?) moose
•Charge in from surprise
•Sure-footed, ignoring most natural terrain that would hinder it

Notes: Originating from B2’s Dungeon World game, it has since spread into the Sea of Stars and possibly beyond . . .
