Natural weapons are innate attacking weapons, such as teeth and claws, possessed by numerous creatures from the lowest level (giant rats) to some of the highest level creatures (enormous rift crawlers) in the lands. Generally, these types of attacks use the creatures attack strength similar to ordinary melee weapon attacks. Some creatures will have more than one type of natural attack in their arsenal. Others may, in addition to their natural weapon capabilities, carry conventional one and two-handed weapons.
