Firefoot Fennec


General Discussion (Prerelease)

Silver Crusade

I'd like my gnome to have a fennec as a pet. It seems in character for her, but they have no stats for foxes in general or fennecs in particular so I present a first draft of a little fennec fox.

So here goes:

From the Legacy of Fire Player's Guide Companion:

Brushtail Fennec: These small, nocturnal, sand-colored foxes are known for their distinctively bushy tails, curiosity, and agility. A master with a brushtail fennec gains a +3 bonus on Search checks. Brushtail fennecs have the same statistics as dogs, but with Strength 6 (see page 271 of the MM).

I don't know that just doesn't seem to do it. I mean specifically for the firefoot they are described as having a heightened sense of hearing which is why they get a bonus to hearing AND jump and added weapon finesse which most smaller predators have. I reduced the size which I think means I should change the bite to 1d3-2. I probably need to get rid of one of the feats which would likely end up being track.

I'm kind of up in the air, by all rights, they should be tiny. I mean, fennecs are really small little animals IRL; cat sized really.

And mostly I upped it's wisdom and reduced it's con and strength. Also, as a burrowing mammal, it should have a burrow speed.

Also trying to update it for our PFRPG game.
