Battering Ram (Ex)

A kting voar uses its gore damage instead of slam when trampling.

Reinforced Horns (Ex)

Underneath the boney exterior of their horns, the kting voar possess a second set of reinforced adamantine-like horns. The gore attack of a kting voar counts as adamantine for overcoming damage reduction. A kting voar inflicts x3 damage on a critical hit from its gore attack.

Toughened Skin (Ex)

The skin of a kting voar is highly absorbent, ensuring the animal is kept at a constant internal temperature despite most harsh levels of heat. It can exist comfortably in conditions as high as 140 degrees Fahrenheit without having to make Fortitude saves. It gains a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against fire effects.


Environment warm plains or jungle
Organization solitary, pair, or herd (3–12)
Treasure none

This muscular bovine trudges forward on thick hooves. A lengthy set of twisting horns protrude from its skull, the ends of which break out from inside the exterior bone.

The kting voar—or ‘snake-eating cow’ as they are known by most humanoids—are a unique breed of bovine. Common in the outskirts of jungles, or locations of heavy humidity, the skin of a kting voar absorbs much of the heat in a region, protecting the creature from all but the most extreme temperatures. A kting voar’s horns are its most iconic feature—a twisting set of dark black horns lurking right under a boney outer shell. The points of its horns actually break out from the bone-shell, giving the point where kting voar’s under horns emerge the appearance of an exposed plant root. They possess senses similar to that of a rhino, with a powerful scent to detect (and stay clear of ) potential threats.

The meat of a kting voar is considered a delicacy in some regions, though their increased muscle mass makes the snake eating cow particularly unsavory to most living creatures. Those hunting the kting voar also tend to find the bovines a difficult prey. The kting voar’s iconic horns easily skewer or knock aside most average sized humanoids, and should the beast become enraged, it is equally as willing to use its horns while tramping down threats. Still, the horns of a kting voar are prized in the crafting of weapons, and while they have the consistency of adamantine, the horns are still natural bone—a material making them especially prized by those that eschew metals, such as druids.

Some plains-dwelling tribes of humanoids use kting voar as impromptu heavy mounts. While they provide little in the way of additional mobility, the kting voar make up for it with their strengthened horns. Kting voar riders wield long spears or other reach weapons in order to properly attack their targets, otherwise the sheer bulk of the mount gets in the way. Still, riding a kting voar is a terrifying proposition for some, as the mounts are notoriously difficult to tame, requiring a DC 25 Handle Animal check in order to properly train for any sort of combat purpose. Even after they’re trained, a kting voar forgets such training if not regularly used in combat situations; combat training wearing off after 2 months of inactivity.

A kting voar stands up to almost 5 feet in height and weighs roughly 1,600 pounds. They rarely travel alone, preferring the company of a mate or larger herds. When in a herd, the rigors of combat excite the kting voar, inciting the creatures to trample any moving targets within their line of sight.
