Notes Shores of Korantia p127 These immense birds of prey make their nests close to the ocean and each has a range that encompasses thousands of square kilometres over both sea and land. Humans are generally too small to bother with as prey except perhaps to carry back to a nest to feed a chick, but a horse or ox is a tasty morsel, and a vessel full of humans may make a worthwhile snackbox that the roc can return to over and again, swooping down and snatching a victim in its talons – indeed it is capable of catching up a human-sized target in each talon at the same time. If a roc is in range of a source of handy missiles, it is quite capable of targeting a vessel with a dropped rock. The starting difficulty for this attack is Hard, adjusted for Size of target and range (vertical height) using the Size and Distance Difficulty Adjustment Table. A large rock dropped from a height can be a devastating weapon if it strikes the deck of a ship.
