Carver


Category: Mount
Price: 1,800 gp
Description: Giant reptiles roam the Talenta Plains. Long ago, the halflings who live and hunt these lands domesticated these beasts for use as steeds. Of these creatures, carvers and clawfoots are the most common. Both are bipedal drakes equipped with razor-sharp talons and terrible teeth. They are ideal mounts for war and travel. The halflings also make use of a slightly smaller beast known as the fastieth. Bred for speed, it can keep pace with a common riding horse in spite of its slight size.
