These enormous herd beasts stand as high as a horse. The Anatalians in Hollow World keep large herds, and will use them as mounts because of the giant reindeer's adaptation to their harsh, cold environment.

A giant reindeer will trample threats or charge and gore an opponent. It can also use it hooves for defence, but these are relatively weak attacks.

Trample (Ex): A giant reindeer can trample medium-size or smaller creatures for 1d8+8 points of damage. Opponents who do not make attacks of opportunity against the giant reindeer can attempt a Reflex save (DC 16, Str based) to halve the damage.

Scent (Ex): This special quality allows a giant reindeer to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell.

Skills: Giant reindeer have a racial bonus of +4 to Climb, Hide, Spot and Survival skills.

Carrying Capacity: A giant reindeer can carry up to 400 lbs as a light load, 401 to 800lbs as a medium load and 801 to 1200lbs as a heavy load.
