Midweek Monster Mayhem - Razor Rat (Swords & Wizardry Light / OSR)

Razor Rats appear to be part rat, part dog and part lizard. Standing one foot high at the shoulder and about two feet from snout to end of tail, Razor Rats and pack hunters. They hunt in packs of 2 to 12 and will generally choose just one or two targets in a party in an attempt to drag them to the ground. If a target is attacked by 3 or more Razor Rats, all attacks will be + 1 to hit due to the swarming effect.

Razor Rats will flee if confronted by fire or if they suffer casualties of half the pack or more.

  1. Domestic razor rats on the contrary will swarm a party pestering them for food. If attacked they will whimper and whine and give you the puppy dog look. It's a rare human or elf who can resist this, those dwarfs have a somewhat easier time of it.

    Domestic razor rats also love cuddling, and will happily take over your bed when you're trying to sleep. DRRs have fleas and ticks they will happily share with you.
