Skin a warthog snout
The warthog stands level-backed on short, thick legs.  His large, angular head is balanced on each side by curved tusks.  Used for goring or gashing his enemies, the tusks provide the warthog's primary means of defense.  The warthog's bright, attentive eyes are set back and up on his head.  Around the edges of the eyes are rows of warts that give this creature his name.  Mainly found living in woods or underground burrows, the warthog prefers dark and damp areas to hide in and to provide him concealment until he rushes out after his prey.

Other information

Warthogs have three distinct charge type attacks.

>A warthog charges at you!
  AS: +194 vs DS: +318 with AvD: +29 + d100 roll: +43 = -52
   A clean miss.
  • Impale (attack) (note the use of the tusk which makes this much more dangerous than the simple charge attack shown above.)
>A warthog charges at you with its tusk!
  AS: +188 vs DS: +278 with AvD: +40 + d100 roll: +36 = -14
   A clean miss.
  • Charge maneuver
>[SMR result: -187 (Open d100: 50)]
A warthog charges towards you, but you leap to the side at the last instant, avoiding a gruesome fate!  The warthog stumbles and falls!
