Vicious pack hunters with stiletto limbs, pinwolves are a seemingly omnipresent threat across the reaches and territories of the wildsea.
Use Pinwolves If…
You want the crew to face something swift and uncanny that attacks in groups.
Sight: They move in fits and bursts, more like small birds than wolves. Long twitching tongues. Rough, coarse fur and smooth skin underneath.
Sound: The sharp impacts of their pin-like limbs on metal. Hissing when they’re readying themselves to attack, whining and yelping when they’re hurt. Scraping and skittering if they move over metal.
Smell: Musky – a mixture of sweat and old blood.
Taste: Pinwolf meat is tough, and tastes bitter unless charred or fried (when it’s then surprisingly buttery).
Moves, Damage & Effects
Climbing: Pinwolves can climb any surface their limbs can punch into, such as flesh or wood. Metal gives them more problems, but larger specimens may be able to punch foot-holds into it with their limbs.
Charges: Lightning fast sprints to knock targets off balance (Blunt / Knockdown).
Bites: Pinwolf mouths are designed to latch on and tear if things try to pull away. (Serrated)
Stamps: ‘Impales’ might be a better word, using their pin-like limbs to pierce their targets (Spike)
