Example text

Burrows stop all other mammalian predators. Plugs will stop weasels and ferrets, but badgers can dig plugs in one minute, rock plugs in two minutes. Weasels and ferrets can run through burrows half again as fast as rabbits, though they have a 50% chance of taking the wrong turn at a fork when in a well-used burrow system that is full of scent. 32 Mongooses, though lumped with mustelids as far as languages, hunt differently. In this game, they hunt in packs, and try to outwit their prey and ambush them.

Flying wolves move in aerial packs, swooping down on prey and ripping it to shreds. They are particularly dangerous to rabbits due to the difficulty of fighting back against a flying creature. Vampire bats are small and timid; they find a mammal asleep and gently settle on the animal, slicing surface blood vessels with their razor-sharp teeth and lapping up blood without awakening their prey. One vampire bat will do two points of damage every 10 minutes, and will leave, satiated, after 30 minutes (6 points of damage).
