Standing almost a foot taller than an average human, the great stag is the preeminent example of majesty in the wilds. Its soft brown coat and strong muscled legs offer the duality of nature incarnate, calm and peaceful but powerful. The antlers atop the stag's head reach towards the sky in regal beauty.

Other information

The great stag can have a varying size of antlers. The sizes range from spike antlers (a single tine) to a huge rack of ten-tined antlers. The larger the rack, the more valuable it is to the furrier. For example, a rack of eight-tined antlers can be valued around 15,000 silver coins. The larger the rack, the less common it is. Many hunters likely have not seen a full ten-tined rack.

An example of a great stag's charge maneuver:

A great stag charges suddenly, and you make a feeble attempt to avoid his vicious antlers.  Stars explode before your eyes as the stag hammers into you, slamming you to the ground!
... 15 points of damage! Loud *crack* as your sternum breaks! You are stunned for 2 rounds! Roundtime: 12 sec.
