Description (Initial Observations): This massive mutated buffalo weighs well over a ton and is justifiably feared by most reatures living in the region. The Bulo is a creature that predators generally tend to avoid unless extremely hungry. Bulos look amazingly like their ancestors, except for the peculiar purple matted fur that covers their arge-framed bodies.Being plant eaters,Bulos do not hunt for food although they are very protective of their grazing lands.
Reactions: No known interactions
Behavior: The Bulo is extremely protective of its current field it grazes in and will kill or frighten off intruders. Combining the great charging speed of an animal this size along with a very evil temper, hrough the years Bulos have developed a thick skull which has aided them in perfecting their primary mode of attack...the charge. When angered, a Bulo will charge its target, butt the creature with its head and knock it down, and then attempt to trample the prone victim. Anytime a Bulo successfully butts its target,that creature is considered knocked down to the ground and must fight with a -2 penalty "to hit"during its next combat round.A Bulo will attempt to trample any victim it knocks down (roll again "to hit" with the trample attack).Any target trampled can not be bitten that round by the Bulo.If a person is trampled by a Bulo,there is also a chance that any items being carried by that person will be damaged or destroyed (GM's decision depending on items and circumstances). The ability to absorb a certain amount of damage from physical blows each round (see KineticAbsorption mutation) makes the Bulo one of the toughest opponents around. Finally,the power to shape- change allows the Bulo to change form into any one of the following three flying insect-like creatures; a Blaash, a Blight, or a Cal Then.
