ABOUT

Packed shoulder to shoulder is a mass of dozens of squealing, gnashing hogs.

A single feral hog is a danger. A troop of thirty to fifty feral hogs is a menace to even seasoned adventurers. Moving in great waves, they devour almost all organic material in their path, leaving stripped landscapes and crushed bones in their wake. A feral hog troop is a simple combatant, pouring over potential meals, knocking them to the ground and consuming them.

The above statistics can be used to represent other mid-sized animals operating in large packs, such as wolves or hyenas. Domestic pigs are weaker and less motivated to violence, but still dangerous en masse. Use the degenerate simple template to represent a troop of domestic pigs.
