Tactics

Unitaurs enter combat with a thunderous bellow and charge directly at their opponents, attempting to gore them. Many unitaurs also favor greatclubs or other heavy weapons scavenged from former victims, favoring crushing weapons over piercing or slashing where possible. They prefer night assaults and ambushes, striking quickly before retreating to regroup for another charge.

Description

Unitaurs dwell in small, scattered tribes upon the Bleak Savannah, where they attack hunting camps and traveling parties under cover of darkness, exacting revenge for their fallen kin and the titans. While not quite as intelligent as humans, unitaurs are quite clever when it comes to raiding and pillaging, and they are good trackers and survivalists. A small number of them develop spellcasting abilities and rise quickly to leadership positions among the tribes.

A unitaur is a large humanoid in form, with thick, grayish-tan skin and a bulky, powerful body. It face is bestial, with a large, rhinoceros-like horn atop the heavy, flattened snout. Its mouth holds sharp teeth similar to those of a dog or bear.
