Notes Kings of raptors, giant eagles are amongst the largest predatory birds which can fly. Though smaller than the legendary roc these huge birds are still capable of snatching up a person in their claws or carrying one upon their back, the eagle’s wingspan extending up to 15m. Most of the giant eagles live high in the mountains, well away from those that would hunt them. When not performing its swooping attacks, a giant eagle will keep well clear of ground-based enemies to ensure it stays out of missile weapon range. During a dive, prepared archers and the like only have a single chance to shoot at the creature since it is travelling so fast. The eagle is permitted a Fly roll to evade any such volley of missiles, using the roll against any ranged attack launched against it on the approach. MI pg 214
