Editor’s Note

This variant Dire Rat was based off of the Dire Rat. The Giant Creature Template was applied, and the creature was advanced five Racial Hit Dice. To match the variant as presented in the Adventure Path, the disease special ability was removed, as was the creature’s swim speed and racial modifiers to skills. These changes resulted in the CR increasing to 4 since it is now slightly more durable than the original.
