Special Traits

  • Stampede: A frightened herd of oxen flees as a group in a random direction (but always away from the perceived source of danger). They literally run over anything of size Large or smaller that gets in their way, dealing 6 (1d12) points of damage for every five oxen in the herd (Dexterity save DC 17 half).
  • Trample: When a musk ox moves at least 20 feet before ramming opponent, the target must make a Strength save (DC 15) to avoid being knocked prone. If the ox knocks the target down, it may immediately make an extra hoof attack against him or her, gaining the standard +4 bonus to attack rolls against prone targets.


  • Ram. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6+4) bashing damage.
  • Hoof. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one prone target. Hit: 8 (1d6+4) bashing.


These stats can be used to model any large herd animal or beast of burden such as a musk ox, yak, bison or the like.
