The long strange trip
Native to Ruie, these large carnivores support their 5,000kg body with eight strong legs. Their brains are buried safely in their torso, which itself is covered with a tough, leathery skin. Four arms end in knobby, blunt, hornlike claws, which deal painful bludgeoning damage, while their feeding maws are ringed with sharp bone plates for cutting meat. They hunt in twos, subduing their prey by clubbing them unconscious and then unceremoniously eating them.
