Blood Rage (Ex)

When a titanboar takes damage in combat, it can fly into a rage as a free action on its next turn.

It gains a +2 bonus to Strength and Constitution, and it takes a –2 penalty to its AC. The rage lasts as long as the battle or 1 minute, whichever is less. It cannot end its rage voluntarily.

ECOLOGY

Environment temperate hills or forests
Organization solitary or pair
Treasure incidental

As destructive as its namesake, the titanboar is a dangerous crossbreed of wild boars, clever domesticated stock, and powerful daeodons. Bred solely for their size and ferocity, they are prized by hunters who wish to pit their skills against the rawest savagery of nature. Popular myth suggests the boar’s gamy flesh enhances virility, and aging nobles sometimes carry daggers or jewelry carved from a titanboar’s tusk to quietly proclaim their continued strength.

Unsurprisingly, the enormous, aggressive brutes are dangerous to the lands in which they are released, destroying entire farmsteads to sate their ravenous appetites. Many prefectures have outlawed the breeding of titanboars, though this does nothing to stop those creatures that have escaped into the wild. On rare occasions, a loose titanboar will find a wild mate and produce an entire herd of dire boar offspring that terrorize a region for decades.
