Monster of the Week - Karrnathi Bloodwolf

A new monster has been uploaded to the Eberron Bestiary. The latest addition to the archives is a fearsome, cannibalistic wolf from the northern forests of Karrnath, perfect as a wilderness encounter or as an animal companion. Read more about the Karrnathi Bloodwolf here, or leave your comments in the thread at the official forums here.

Here is a sneak preview:

A hulking wolf with thick, grey fur decorated with crimson patches paces towards you. It bares its teeth and growls.

The Karrnathi bloodwolf is a fearsome predator native to the Karrnwood and Icewood. It is stronger and slightly larger than the typical wolf, with thick fur and layers of fat and muscle to keep it warm through the harsh Karrnathi winters.
Bloodwolves are fiercely territorial, easy to anger, and difficult to keep quiet. A chorus of bloodwolf howls echoes through the forests each night, a mixture of high-pitched screams and deep, rumbling growls. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of the behaviour of bloodwolves is their cannibalism. Bloodwolves commonly fight to the death to control territory, then eat the loser. For young bloodwolves, playtime can be just as bloody and even as deadly as such battles, and a bloodwolf that has eaten its own sibling often rises to lead the pack. For this reason, bloodwolfs have larger litters but smaller packs than most other wolves.
