Low-Light Vision

The monster can see in dim light as though it were bright light, so it ignores the Concealed condition due to dim light.

Scent (Imprecise) 30 feet

Scent involves sensing creatures or objects by smell, and is usually a vague sense. The range is listed in the ability, and it functions only if the creature or object being detected emits an aroma (for instance, incorporeal creatures usually do not exude an aroma).

If a creature emits a heavy aroma or is upwind, the GM can double or even triple the range of scent abilities used to detect that creature, and the GM can reduce the range if a creature is downwind.

Deep Breath

A beaver can hold its breath for 15 minutes.

Construct Shelter

The beaver takes 1 minute to rapidly construct a simple mound along one side of its space, which can be used to Take Cover.

Penetrating Bite Two Actions

The beaver makes a jaws Strike. The Strike ignores the first 5 Hardness of organic materials, such as rope, leather, and wood.

Prop One Action

The beaver stabilizes itself with its tail, gaining a +1 circumstance bonus to its Fortitude and Reflex DCs against Shove and Trip attempts until it next takes an action with the move trait.

Beavers are stocky, herbivorous rodents that live in freshwater ecosystems throughout Avistan. They live in lodges, which they construct from logs, grass, rocks, and mud.

A typical beaver can grow up to 4 feet long and weigh up to 65 pounds.
