Description (Initial Observations): Rakrods are mutated cousins of the common white labrotory rat. They are 30 centimeters long and have lost their tails. Located in the middle of its forehead is an 8 centimeter long horn that is tipped with a poisionous barb
Equipment: Rakrods are unconcerned with technology or equipment. They will scavange for food and nest material, thus shredding material in their hunt for these materials.
Reactions: If the barb on their horn is broken off during combat it will take grow a new one. If a rakrod's barb is removed before its use (or within 2 actions after its death), it maintains its poison and can be used for many purposes in addition to the obvsious applicaiton as a dart in a blowgun.
