Jotunnboar CR 7
Environment cold plains and forests
Organization usually solitary
Jotunnboar are terrifying wild pigs the size of a small cottage. Fiercely territorial, jotunnboar slaughter anything larger than a housecat that enters their territory: unfortunately for the peasantry a rampaging jotunboar’s territory can stretch for dozens of miles on a side. Stopping one of these nearly unstoppable beasts is a job for an entire army, or a cadre of experienced adventurers with access to potent combat-magic.
Jotunnboar are native to the frigid north, and hypothermia is one of the very few things that can actually kill a jotunnboar. Taking advantage of this, the live capture and display of a jotunnboar is a prestigious status symbol for northern lords. A captured jotunnboar is bound with steel fetters, hung over a fire-trench, thick slabs of charred pork carved from the living body of the enraged monster. Heaven help those nearby if the captive, burning jotunnboar ever breaks its chains.
