ABOUT

The kting voar—or ‘snake-eating cow’ as they are known by most humanoids—are a unique breed of bovine. Common in the outskirts of jungles, or locations of heavy humidity, the skin of a kting voar absorbs much of the heat in a region, protecting the creature from all but the most extreme temperatures. A kting voar’s horns are its most iconic feature—a twisting set of dark black horns lurking right under a boney outer shell.

The points of its horns actually break out from the bone-shell, giving the point where kting voar’s under horns emerge the appearance of an exposed plant root.

A kting voar stands up to almost 5 feet in height and weighs roughly 1,600 pounds.

Cultivated Resources. The meat of a kting voar is considered a delicacy in some regions, though their increased muscle mass makes the snake eating cow particularly unsavory to most living creatures. Those hunting the kting voar also tend to find the bovines a difficult prey. The kting voar’s iconic horns easily skewer or knock aside most average sized humanoids, and should the beast become enraged, it is equally as willing to use its horns while tramping down threats. Still, the horns of a kting voar are prized in the crafting of weapons, and while they have the consistency of adamantine, the horns are still natural bone—a material making them especially prized by those that eschew metals, such as druids.

Unruly Mounts. Some plains-dwelling tribes of humanoids use kting voar as impromptu heavy mounts. While they provide little in the way of additional mobility, the kting voar make up for it with their strengthened horns. Still, riding a kting voar is a terrifying proposition for some, as the mounts are notoriously difficult to tame, requiring a DC 25 Handle Animal check in order to properly train for any sort of combat purpose. Even after they’re trained, a kting voar forgets such training if not regularly used in combat situations; combat training wears off after 2 months of inactivity.
