Wandering Monsters: Drop-Wolves

A couple people really liked this line I included in the Green Bard adventure module, in the rumors section: “Vicious packs of drop-wolves hide in the treetops and attack interlopers from above.” Unfortunately, it’s just a rumor. No actual drop-wolves appear in the adventure. But even as I was writing the module, I thought, “Man, drop-wolves really need to be a thing.”

Drop-Wolves (Aggressive Arboreal Predatory Beast)
2 to 12; 1+1 Dice, Light Armor, Move 15/6 leap, 1+1 dice Damage; ambush

Pack predators with unusual climbing and leaping ability that live in dense forests, dropping down from the treetops on unsuspecting prey, including human travelers. This doubles their surprise chances (3+ on 1d6, instead of 5+) and does an extra 1d6 damage on the initial attack, if successful.

If seriously threatened, a drop-wolf can leap into the trees to escape, jumping from treetop to treetop at Move 6 speed.
