SPECIAL ABILITIES

Animal Blood (Ex)

A manimal triceratops counts both as an animal and a humanoid for the purpose of spells, abilities, and effects that specifically affect animals. It is allowed a Will save to resist spells and effects that specifically affect animals, even if the effect does not normally allow a Will save. The DC for such a save equals 10 + the spell’s level + caster’s appropriate ability modifier. If the effect is not a spell, the DC is equal to 10 plus 1/2 manimal’s HD plus manimal’s Charisma modifier. Success renders the manimal immune to that particular effect for 24 hours. Awaken animal has no effect on a manimal.

ECOLOGY

Environment temperate plains
Organization solitary, pair, herd (5-8)
Treasure standard

The manimal triceratops is short-tempered and aggressive. It uses its great size and strength to force other creatures to do its labor and often enslaves weaker creatures to work on vast plantations. Sometimes a settlement of weaker creatures can bargain with a manimal triceratops, offering food and shelter for its protection of the town, but the manimal often asks for too much or boorishly takes what it wants from farmers’ fields and merchant’s market stalls, regardless of any bargain it made.
