Pack Lizard

  驮蜥Pack lizards 看上去就像巨型鬣蜥,不过它们是暗淡、斑驳的橄榄灰色,并且身体异常宽大(平均总长有22-24英尺,而宽度总是约为10英尺)。顾名思义,所有在岩带或地下环境旅行的智慧种族,都将它们作为驼畜。
Pack lizards resemble giant iguanas, except that they are a dull, mottled olive-gray in hue, and are unusually broad of body (averaging 22-24' in overall length, they are always around 10' wide). As their name suggests, they are used as draft animals by all intelligent races traveling in rocky or underground terrain.

战斗Combat:

  驮蜥是种安静、行动缓慢的野兽,除非遭受攻击,否则很少会攻击任何东西。它们的食谱包容万千、包括腐肉,并且似乎特别喜欢蛇肉和张载草甸上的各种黄花(譬如蒲公英、向日葵、毛茛、太阳星)。驮蜥的舌头又黏又长,在战斗中,会用其强有力的双颚啃咬(如果它们的牙齿再大、再锋利一些,会造成更大的伤害)。如果够饿、并给它时间琢磨下怎么咬,已知驮蜥甚至咬穿防具和木门。如果驮蜥采取了能够对金属或木质物品造成威胁(表面平坦的通常不会有危险,但如果凸起来一块、或有突角的则需小心)的啮咬方式,则该物品需要进行对抗粉碎打击的豁免检定。若这只蜥蜴该物品进行的是蓄意攻击(举例来说,啮咬戳向它的矛头,或是穿过牢门获取食物),该豁免检定将受到-2惩罚。
Pack lizards are placid, slow-moving beasts who seldom attack anything unless attacked first. They will eat anything, including carrion, and seem especially fond of snake-flesh and the various yellow-petaled flowers that grow in meadows (such as dandelions, sunflowers, buttercups, and sunstars). Pack lizards have long, sticky probing tongues, and in battle bite down with crushingly-powerful jaws (if their teeth were larger, sharper fangs, they would do far more damage). They have been known to bite through armor and wooden doors, if hungry enough, and given time to think about it. If a pack lizard bites down in such a way that a metal or wooden object is at risk (a flat surface usually is not, but one that sticks up, or has a projecting corner certainly is), the item should make a saving throw vs. crushing blow. If the lizard deliberately attacks the item (i.e. to bite the head off a spear that is jabbing it, or to get through a cell door to food beyond), the saving throw is made at -2.

  驮蜥免疫已知的大部分毒素,并能以每3回合1点的速度恢复物理伤害。基于高温与火焰的攻击只会对它们造成半数伤害,而基于寒冷的攻击则会在每个骰造成1点额外伤害。驮蜥的八趾足上有粘性的脚垫。这些灵活而脆弱的脚趾覆盖着爪状角质保护套——但这些蜥蜴事实上不没有爪子,也无法在战斗中以耙抓造成任何伤害。它们的粘性足使其能够在洞穴(和房间!)的墙壁与天花板上如履平地,即便是在负重时也能保持抓地力。
Pack lizards are immune to most known poisons, and regenerate physical damage at the rate of 1 hit point every 3 turns. Heatand fire-based attacks inflict only half damage on them, but coldbased attacks do them an extra point of damage per die. Pack lizards have sticky pads on their splay-toed feet. These flexible, vulnerable digits are covered by claw-like, horny protective sheaths—but pack lizards do not in fact have claws, and cannot rake anything in combat for damage. Their sticky feet allow them to travel on cavern (and room!) walls and ceilings just as they do on floors, retaining their grip even when carrying heavy loads.

  驮蜥能够击倒一位中型M或更小体型的目标,然后用一只脚将其定住,使得接下来的啮咬攻击自动命中(不需要投攻击骰,直接骰伤害骰)。
Pack lizards able to knock down and put a foot on a M-sized or smaller opponent can hold on, so that bite attacks are automatically successful (no attack roll necessary; roll only for damage).

  而在接下来的轮中,这只蜥蜴不会再进行啮咬攻击,而是造成4d4点碾压伤害。被压住受害者(攻击时遭受-3惩罚)有权进行1次力量检定(遭受通常的-4惩罚)以挣脱碾压的重量;在任意轮获得成功意味着其只受半数伤害。通常这只蜥蜴会以每轮4d4的伤害进行碾压,持续6~8轮(或者直到它成功进行了另一次智力检定),在那时它会停下来看看还剩下什么——然后咬下去。
On the round that follows, the lizard does not bite, but does 4d4 crushing damage. Allow the pinned victim (who can attack only at -3) a Strength Check (at the usual 4-point penalty) to wriggle free of the crushing weight; success on any round means only half damage is taken. The lizard typically goes on crushing, at 4d4 damage per round, for 6 to 8 rounds (or until it successfully makes another Intelligence Check), when it stops to see what's left—and bite it.

栖息地/社会Habitat/Society:

  在自由自在时,驮蜥往往是些怠惰而安静的生物,它们躺在长满青草的草地上、悠闲地吞食着草料和腐肉,爬进地洞或洞窟躲避严冬哭喊,而当微风给它们带来大量腐肉的臭味时,它们会冒险潜入深处——比如在幽暗地域的一场大战之后。
Left to themselves, pack lizards tend to be lazy, placid beasts who lie about in grassy meadows devouring grass and carrion at leisure, crawling into burrows or caverefuges to escape biting winter cold, and who venture down into the depths when breezes bring them the reek of much carrion— after a large battle in the Underdark, for instance.

  然而,它们很少(假设有的话)能够自由自在。那些更快、更聪明的生物总是在狩猎它们作为食物、或是奴役它们。除了最偏远的沙漠地区,几乎没有呆在地表的驮蜥。相反,它们基本生活在火山地区周围的地洞和洞窟中,吸收着大地的热量、吃掉能找到的一切(例如紫蕈、胶质怪、或是其它什么大部分生物觉得有毒或有腐蚀性的动植物)。驮蜥很少交配,但在交配时,它们会稳定地成对生活很多年,用橡胶般外壳的卵一次繁衍2d4只雏蜥,一年生2~3次。
However, they seldom, if ever, are left to themselves. Faster, more intelligent creatures are always hunting them down for food, or enslaving them. Few are left aboveground, these days, save in the remotest desert areas. Instead, they dwell in burrows and caverns around volcanic areas, basking in the heat of the earth, and eating whatever they can find (such as violet fungi, gelatinous cubes, and other plants or creatures that most beings find poisonous or corrosive). Pack lizards mate seldom, but remain together in stable pairs for years when they do, raising litters of 2d4 young at a time from rubbery-shelled eggs, and having new litters twice or thrice a year.

生态学Ecology:

  只要有足够的时间吸收全日照(例如,在地表世界的沙漠或被太阳炙烤的山岩上)或大地深处、封闭流动的熔岩的热量,那么哪怕在绝对寒冷和潮湿的环境中,驮蜥依然能拖行可怕的负荷。它们的肉类似于于最紧致、白美的猪肉,是许多生物(包括卓尔精灵和人类)的食物,兽人尤其珍视喜爱。驮蜥鳞是 活力药水potions of vitality 的一种珍贵成分,而从它们脚上提取的精华本质在制作 至尊胶sovereign glue 时价值不凡。
Pack lizards can haul awesome loads in quite cold and damp conditions, so long as they have sufficient time to soak up the heat of the full sun (in surface-world deserts or on sun-baked mountain rocks, for example), or that of deep, close-flowing lava. Their flesh, which resembles the densest, whitest pork, is eaten by many creatures, including drow and humans, and is especially prized by orcs. Pack lizard ichor is a prized ingredient in potions of vitality, and the essence derived from their boiled feet is valued in the making of sovereign glue.
