Deer are hoofed ruminant mammals related to Reindeer. Deer are found in groups ranging in sizes of 1-5 on any of the forest terrains. They run at a running speed of 3, which means a hearthling will be unable to outrun them barefoot on forest terrain, should they chase you after being aggroed. Deer should not be confused with Moose which are quite a bit stronger. Deer are a brighter brown color and are quite a bit less bulky than Moose.

Combat

Notes

  • Deer fight solo, but can be found in herds.
  • Deer will destroy anything that obstructs their path if you are on a tile they can get to. If the object in their way has a lower Soak than 25, it will be destroyed. This essentially means that only Palisades and Brickwalls can stop a Deer from chasing you, although it is also viable to flee onto deep water, since they cannot traverse deep water tiles.
