Fantasy Velociraptors were created by the noted Mad Archwizards Mikhail Kriton of Karameikos and Stefan Spellburgh of Aalban. These terrors make it their purpose in life to eat anything alive, but their preferred food is adventurers, precocious children, good-looking women and wise old men. They have an instinctive knack for breaking into places, born knowing how to pick locks, disable magical wards, and climb into chimneys, high windows, etc. Their obsessive pursuit of prey is also perhaps their greatest weakness, as theyíll break into ambushes and hideous death traps in pursuit of tasty things. They travel in packs, and may follow something larger hoping to finish off either it or its prey when the fight is over.

Sometimes, hungry velociraptors swarm in a great tide of densely packed and hungry flesh. A pack of hungry fantasy velociraptors can pull down all but the largest dinosaurs. Especially if several swarms work together.
