Official Hippopotamus Stats?

Recommended Posts

You might try in CoC's Secrets of Kenya. I don't have the book but I do know that it has ostrich stats. Out of interest, why not the Bestiary version?

Apart from 'Gateway Bestiary', are there any statistics for hippos?

If there are, could some kind person point me towards them?

 

Gateway Bestiary would be what any BRP hippo stats are based on. They aren't in the Bestiary because there aren't hippopotami in Genertela.

Given that the hippo is actually the apex critter in most of its range, I'd say the stats are officially "whatever the hippo wants them to be."

:D

 Guess you have not seen a Picture of the High Priestess at the Earthshakers Temple.

If you want some unofficial stats I could update the RQ2 Gateway Bestiary Hippo stats  to RQ3/BRP standards. It's mostly adjusting SIZ, STR, and CON to fit the new scale, giving the Hippo a fixed INT, and then working out the derived stats based on the new attribute scores.

That would be kind - I have 'Gateway Bestiary' with me somewhere, but later versions would be handy.

Here are some RQ3 Hippo stats.  Sorry about the formatting. Let me know if there are any problems. Personally I hate the wide swing on STR and SIZ (6D6) but kept them to keep the stats consistent with Elephants (as they were in Gateway Beastiary).

 

Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius)

STR 6D6+18 (39)

CON 3D6+13 (23-24)

SIZ 6D6+26 (47)

INT 6

POW 3D6 (10-11)

DEX 3D6 (10-11)

 

Move 3

Hit Points 35

Fatigue 63

Damage Bonus: +4D6

Females tend to be smaller (take 3 points off of STR and SIZ)

 

Hit Location D20 Points

RH Leg 01-02 6/12

LH Leg 03-04 6/12

Hind Q 05-08 6/18

Fore Q 09-12 6/18

RF Leg 13-14 6/12

LF Leg 15-16 6/12

Head 17-20 6/15

 

 

Weapon SR Attack% Damage

Bite 6 35+6% 1D8+db

Charge

Trample 6 50% 8D6

 

Armor: 6 points

Significant Skills: Smell Intruder 50+5, Listen 50+5
