Nanotyrannus Acinonyx Speed Demon

The original Nanotyrannus was a small tyrannosaur, about 15 feet in length. N. acinonyx is the same size, but of lighter build, and as the word acinonyx (cheetah) in its name suggests, it is capable of attaining extremely high speeds in a run, possibly 80 mph or more. With black stripes above and a sandy yellow belly, it is a striking animal in appearance, and its speed enables it to easily run down any of the hypsilophodonts or other small dinosaurs that are its standard prey. Like true...

Sirenisaurus Macrolophus Song Hunter

Solitary or family (1-2 adults, 1-2 young) Challenge Rating Treasure Alignment Advancement Sirenisaurus macrolophus, the big-crested siren lizard, gets its name from two prominent characteristics. The big crest is a weirdly-shaped hollow head crest, which it can use to imitate the calls of any type of duckbilled dinosaur dwelling in Storm Valley, while the siren part comes from the use it makes of this feature to draw unwary duckbills to their doom. This huge carnosaur is a specialized hunter...

Warm forest, hills, mountains, desert, O. arbophagus is a tree-eating descendant of the original Oviraptor. Unlike its ancestor, this creature is an omnivore though it is largely herbivorous, it will eat eggs or rotten flesh when the opportunity presents itself. Eight feet in length, its powerful horny beak enables it to chew and devour any vegetable matter, including wood, thorn bushes, and - in the desert - cacti. Obviously, this means the creature can live in virtually any terrestrial...

The jaws are likewise 15 feet in length, half again as large as those of its fearsome ancestor.

Chapter New Creatures

Because Storm Valley is just now being explored and exploited, none of the animals listed below have been captured long enough to be domesticated. We have thus not listed DCs for training these beasts. The standard rule from the Handle Animal skill description in the PHB is a DC of 20 the animal's HD. This can be modified at the GM's discretion according to the creature's temperament. As noted in the Broncosaurus Rex Core Rulebook, we treat dinosaurs as type animal, not beast as in the core d20...

Allosaurus Temnonychus Claw Cutter

Broncosaurus Rex Ironclad

Listen 10, Spot 14, Wilderness Lore 5 Warm forest, hill, plains, and marsh Allosaurus temnonychus the cutting claw gets its name from the massive foot-long claws on each of its forelimbs. These claws, allied to massively powerful arm muscles - among the most powerful of any carnivorous dinosaur - do terrible damage, even more than the great jaws. Even worse from the standpoint of human explorers is the fact that allosaurus temnonychus is the allosaur species most likely to attack without...

Its lifestyle reflects this, and the fact that Hyaenasaurus can live in almost any...

Union Presence

Broncosaurus Rex Forts

Once the true nature of Storm Valley's contents became known, the Union mounted a massive effort to gain a substantial foothold in the valley, going so far as to use explosives to widen one of the larger mountain passes so ground vehicles could enter. Unfortunately, this intended highway is frequently blocked by landslides, most of which seem to be due to the lightning striking the mountains. Others seem to have been deliberately caused by certain members of the animal life, pterosaurs and...

Confederate Presence

Broncosaurus Rex Settlements

In contrast to the sorry state of affairs at Fort Phil Kearny, the various Confederate outposts in Storm Valley are hanging on quite well, and even thriving. Most of them are considerably smaller than the Union's besieged Gibraltar, making them much less threatening, and even in their pursuit of mining operations they have altered the local landscape much less. Confederate residents approach the wildlife with a live and let live attitude, rather than shooting on sight, an attitude that has...

Brief History

Broncosaurus Rex Settlements

Connors, one of the few truly adventurous souls in the Union military. In charge of a mixed party of military personnel, civilian adventurers two-fis-ters , and scientists machinists , he penetrated one of the mountain passes on the southern edge of Storm Valley, which has since been named Connors' Pass in his memory. It was the...

Megalochelys Thalassos Deep Snapper

Megalochelys thalassos, the huge turtle of the sea, is a descendant of the Mesozoic sea turtle Archelon, but where that turtle was only 12 feet long, this monster is 60 feet long and 40 feet across, with large eyes, a red-rimmed beak that stands out from the dull brown of the rest of the animal, and a backward-sloping shell composed of massive, shingle-like scales. It is an omnivore, feasting on seaweed and dead or injured marine animals, while its protective carapace gives few of the Tempest...

Whiplasher

This carnosaur hunts alone, via ambush, or in small family groups. Sometimes, when cover is scarce, one adult will sound the alarm call of a particular species to stampede them in the general direction of the other, which is lying in wait. Although evil, the parents take excellent care of their young, though they often subject dying prey to torture as they teach the young carnosaurs how to kill. The mating season itself is the scene of unimaginable bugling and other cries, as each male tries to...
