Giant owls are nocturnal birds of prey, feared for their ability to hunt and attack in near silence. They are intelligent, and though naturally suspicious, sometimes associate with good creatures. A typical giant owl stands about 9 feet tall, has a wingspan of up to 20 feet, and resembles its smaller cousins in nearly every way except size.

Giant owls speak Common and Sylvan.

Combat

A giant owl attacks by gliding silently just a few feet above its prey and plunging to strike when directly overhead.

Superior Low-Light Vision (Ex): A giant owl can see five times as far as a human can in dim light.

Skills: Giant owls have a +8 racial bonus on Listen checks and a +4 racial bonus on Spot checks.

*When in flight, giant owls gain a +8 bonus on Move Silently checks.

Training A Giant Owl

Although intelligent, a giant owl requires training before it can bear a rider in combat. To be trained, a giant owl must have a friendly attitude toward the trainer (this can be achieved through a successful Diplomacy check). Training a friendly giant owl requires six weeks of work and a DC 25 Handle Animal check. Riding a giant owl requires an exotic saddle. A giant owl can fight while carrying a rider, but the rider cannot also attack unless he or she succeeds on a Ride check.

Giant owl eggs are worth 2,500 gp apiece on the open market, while chicks are worth 4,000 gp each. Professional trainers charge 1,000 gp to rear or train a giant owl.

Carrying Capacity: A light load for a giant owl is up to 300 pounds; a medium load, 301-600 pounds; and a heavy load, 601-900 pounds.

Geoffrey considers the situation, glad to have broken free of the black tentacles which bound him and that the duergar had retreated. Much to his concern, he found many wishing to go after them even though it was a battle that was neither planned and could not be possibly avoided. Still, this was the fastest route so he could see way many of the party still wanted to continue ahead.

Looking to those asking his decision, that of Fay and Lia in particular, he says, “There is risk in moving forward, yet possibly risk no matter where we go. This path is known by our guide, however long he stays with us, and is what we have for the map as the fastest route. Yet there may be more duergar, and if we use up our spells there may be other dangers we are not prepared for once we get out of here.”

Yet Geoffroy makes the decision, say, “Lets continue on and hope we can avoid another confrontation, see if we can sneak past them. If we must fight, we will, but mainly lets just try to get out of the Undermountain as quickly as possible.” The Morningliege hoped a mistake wasn't being made, but will go with the majority if that is what they wished to do.

Continuing, he adds, “Anyone in the need of more healing on the way, or do they feel it is okay to wait. Lia and Velon, how fair thee?” Geoffory wanted to make sure no one had too great of injury.
