SPECIAL ABILITIES

Combat Trained

This example emu has been specifically trained for combat (see the Handle Animal skill) so its kicks are not treated as secondary attacks.

ECOLOGY

Battle emus with the advanced simple template exist, but are relatively uncommon and, unlike ostriches, these creatures are not generally called “battle emus.” Like ostriches, emus can be trained for combat with the Handle Animal skill, and such mounts often serve halflings, gnomes, and other small races as steeds in combat.

A Small-size paladin may choose an emu for a special mount. Druids and rangers may select emus as animal companions, using the statistics below.

Costs

Emu (combat trained): 30 gp
