    Squirrel x Emu? That sounds pretty cool.

    I'm not sure whether I'd prefer a squirrel from the Pteromyini tribe or not... A "flying" flightless bird would be hilarious, though.
    Are any of my tables still broken?

    Does anyone know stats for an Emu/Ostrich or a squirrel anywhere? Not that I couldn't brew them myself (squirrels are slightly changed monkeys), but itwould save some time.

    I don't think that WotC ever printed Ratite statistics, though I'm sure that someone on the Internet has already posted some homebrew stats.

    The Fiend Folio has stats for a "terror bird," and the Arms & Equipment Guide has stats for an "axebeak." Both are Large sized and both are 3.0, though there is an update for the Fiend Folio.

    The axebeak is specifically stated to be ostrich-like, if it helps.


    Mechanically, squirrels and rats are probably interchangeable. Maybe drop the swim speed/Swim skill bonus and increase the land and climb speeds to 20ft with a Jump skill bonus.

    Voting for Penguins and Insectivores. If I may be more specific Macaroni Penguins and Star-Nosed Moles, for no other reason than they're both the most flamboyant of their families.

    *Squimus have a +4 racial bonus to balancing due to their strong, dextrous feet

    Up the Wall (ex): Squimus do not truly climb, as one might assume. Instead, they have mastered the trick of running up sheer surfaces at full speed. If they have moved at least half their land speed on flat ground already, they can spend a second move action to move up to their land speed up any sheer surface, as long as they end in a place where they can stand and balance, such as a branch.

    Squimus are animals of the lightly forested grasslands and savannahs. They are extremely fast and persistent runners that have been known to outrun horses on longer journeys.
    What sets them apart from many other savannah animals with similar lifestyles is that the Squimus are able to, and in fact like, to spend a good deal of time in the treetops. While the ycan not truly climb, due to their short and rather weak arms, they are able to gather momentum on flat ground and then simply speed up a tree, to then perch on branches, where they eat and sleep before moving on again when an area is cleared of food.
    For their diets, Squimus prefer fruit and nuts they gather from trees, using their arms to hold the nuts and their sharp teeth to crack them, but will also eat insects and seeds from the ground.
    One extraordinary thing about Squimus is their excellent memory. In times of abundance, they dig shallow holes between the roots of trees, using their strong, clawed legs. These holes are filled with nuts and fruits, then cowered with lose dirt. Since Squimus journey along the same routes every year, they will then uncover these hoardes in later years.
    For reproduction, Squimus form temporary pairs. The male and female build a treetop nest of twigs together. After mating, the female will lay three to six fist-sized, bright green eggs.

    Squimus can be used as mounts for small-sized or smaller creatures and, in fact, make excellent mounts for scouts and shock troops, due to their endurance and high speed.

    Polls closed. Xenarthra/Owl it is.

    One last poll, then. I don't think owls are all that different in game characteristics, but if you have a favourite, feel free to vote on a look. I'll also add some extinct forms, since extinct Xenarthra are fun.

    What kind of Xenarthra will be mixed with an owl?
    Armadillo
    Glyptodon (Extinct giant armadillo)
    Modern Sloth
    Extinct Giant Land Sloth
    Anteater

    Calling it. I don't think I even need to count, it's an Owlmadillo. Armadillowl? Nah. Owlmadillo.

    Specifically, the Snowfairy Owlmadillo, though I must say that I can't really draw "cute".

    So many body plans. Winged Armadillo with owl head? Armoured body, clawed front legs, owl head? Owl with armadillo head? Four owl legs? Choices, choices.

    *Snowfairy Owlmadillos have a +8 racial bonus on listen and move silently checks.

    Drop (ex): As a full-round action while flying, Snowfairy Owlmadillos can roll their entire body into an armoured shell and drop on their enemies with bone-breaking force.
    As part of this attack, the Owlmadillo must be flying at least 30 feet above an enemy, then drop into their enemy's space. This attack deals 1d6 bludgeoning damage to the enemy, who can make a reflex save (DC 12, this is wisdom-dependent) to avoid the attack.
    While doing this, the Owlmadillo ignores all falling damage from the first 40 feet of its fall.

    Owlmadillos are the only known members of the Order Strigixenarthra or strange-jointed owls, as they are also known in the common tongue. These birds are armoured in a suit of overlapping leathery scale that covers most of their bodies except for the wings and faces: their backs, stomachs, back of the neck and even top of the head. Only the wings, faces and tails are feathered as in the owls they closely resemble.
    The Snowfairy Owlmadillo is the smallest and by far most vividly coloured of all the Owlmadillos. Where most are just mottled in a mixture of light and darker brown shades, the Snowfairy owlmadillo has feathers of pure white with black stripes and a black-and-pink checkered back armour. No one quite knows what the meaning of that strange colouration is, as it can certainly not serve any function in camouflage. Everything from the jest of some strange god to fey intervention to sexual selection has been suggested.
    Owlmadillos spend most of their lives on the ground, except for when they need to flee or hunt. Their legs are outfitted with long, broad and very strong claws, which they use to dig shallow burrows in the ground. While nesting, the female will spend most of its time lying in the entrance to the nest curled into a tight ball, presenting only its leathery shell to the outside, thus serving as kind of armoured plug closing off the entrance.
    The shell of an Owlmadillo is relatively heavy. While certainly protective, it makes flying for long stretches of time tiring to these beasts. However, there is another advantage to it: Owlmadillos can curl into a tight sphere even in midair between wingbeats and drop on unsuspecting prey or predators from a great height, killing them. Naturalists have found everything from Toadshrews over Foxadders to fully grown Crocodeer in the characteristic craters left behind by Owlmadillo impacts.

    Since you mentioned them in the Owlmadillo's fluff, how about: toadshrews, foxadders and crocodeer? Kudos on a really great owlmadillo. The only info you missed was weight and perhaps height. I imagine these weigh more than a bowling ball if they can take out a crocodeer. :-)

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    I've got a red pen and I'm not afraid to use it.
