Notes Giant rats are the most common creature encountered in caves, dungeons, and ruins, just after their smaller cousins, and many an adventurer’s first quest is to clean out a lair of these nasty creatures infesting the basement of some inn or shop for a few silvers. The following characteristics detail a giant rat averaging 0.5 m to 1 m (2 to 3 ft) in length, not counting a hairless pink tail as long as its body. The loss of its tail will not typically cause a Serious Wound, but will cause the rat to flee the area. Disease: Filth Fever Type: injury Potency:60 Onst:1d3 days Frquency: 1/day Effect: 1d3 DEX damage and 1d3 CON damage Description: Filth fever is a sickness characterized by fever and slowness of movement. It is spread by bites from contaminated animals, such as rats or other sewer animals, and can be deadly if left untreated. Cure: 2 consecutive saves, healing, magic
