Tusk (d10+4 damage 3 piercing) 20 HP 1 armor
Forceful, Ignores Armor, Near

The Bush Elephant is a majestic creature, slightly smaller than its War Elephant counterpart, but still towering above most other creatures. It has a robust build, covered in a rough, sandy-colored hide. Its large ears fan out like sails, and it possesses elongated, curved tusks.

The Bush Elephant has a deep affinity for the natural world and acts as a guardian of the wilderness. It is known to defend its habitat fiercely, ensuring the safety and balance of the surrounding flora and fauna. The Bush Elephant reacts aggressively to those who threaten or exploit the natural environment, whether it be poachers, deforestation, or other destructive forces. It charges into battle, using its abilities to trample and incapacitate foes, while also employing its plant manipulation skills to create barriers and protect the natural world. The Bush Elephant's actions often cause problems for those who disrespect or seek to harm the delicate balance of nature.

Trample: The Bush Elephant charges forward with surprising speed and agility, using its sheer size and momentum to trample enemies in its path. Its thunderous charge can knock foes off balance, inflict substantial damage, and create chaos on the battlefield.

Thick Hide: The Bush Elephant's hide is tough and weathered, offering natural protection against physical attacks. It possesses a high degree of resistance to most mundane weaponry, requiring more powerful or specialized means to harm it.

Plant Manipulation: The Bush Elephant has a unique connection to the plant life around it. It can manipulate nearby vegetation, causing vines to entangle enemies, roots to trip or immobilize them, or even summon thorny brambles to impede foes' movements. This ability allows the Bush Elephant to control the battlefield and create obstacles for its adversaries.

Move: Plant Manipulation

When the Bush Elephant focuses its energy on manipulating nearby vegetation, roll +Wisdom. On a 10+, choose two. On a 7-9, choose one:

  • Vines of Entanglement: The Bush Elephant causes thick vines to sprout from the ground, entangling and restraining enemies within reach. The affected targets are immobilized or have their movement significantly impeded.
  • Root Snare: The Bush Elephant summons roots from the earth to ensnare a target's legs, tripping them and causing them to fall prone. The affected target suffers a penalty to their next action or attack.
  • Bramble Barricade: The Bush Elephant creates a barrier of thorny brambles, obstructing the path of enemies. The brambles provide cover and can make it difficult for foes to approach or attack. Healing Verdure: The Bush Elephant channels its connection with nature to release a burst of healing energy. Allies within range are surrounded by rejuvenating plant life, restoring some health and temporarily alleviating minor injuries or ailments.

    On a miss, the Bush Elephant's attempt at plant manipulation goes awry or attracts unintended consequences. The GM will introduce a complication or twist related to the manipulation of vegetation.

    Note: This move allows the Bush Elephant to tap into its unique connection with plants and harness the power of nature. It provides versatile options for hindering enemies, creating barriers, or aiding allies through the manipulation of nearby vegetation. The move reflects the Bush Elephant's role as a guardian of the natural world and its ability to utilize the environment to its advantage. Instinct: Protect the natural world
