The Degradation of Deepingdale
Nedylene's Animal Companion (Dire Wolf)
Samor (Dire Wolf)
Dire wolves are efficient pack hunters that will kill anything they can catch.
Dire wolves are mottled gray or black, about 9 feet long and weighing some 800 pounds.
Dire wolves prefer to attack in packs, surrounding and flanking a foe when they can.
A dire wolf that hits with a bite attack can attempt to trip its opponent (+11 check modifier) as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the dire wolf.
