Origins and DistributionEdit
Alligators are carnivorous aquatic reptiles found in the rivers and waterways of north-eastern Khul. They have been recorded in the Deathmoor, and a river near Marsh Vile. They are likely also found in similar habitat such as Lake Nekros and the marshier parts of Affen Forest.
Given their apparent isolation in this corner of Khul, Alligators may be found in other areas that were once closer when most land-masses were united as the super continent of Irritaria. These potential areas could include the Arrowhead Islands and Far Analand. This would make them the only Crocodile-like reptiles to be found in the Old World.
Like Crocodiles, Alligators are huge reptiles, often as much as six metres long. They have four legs with webbed feet, a vertically-flattened tail for propelling them through the water, and long, tooth-filled jaws for catching prey. Alligators are covered in armoured scales that are generally a dull grey-green in colour. Their jaws are proportionally much broader than those of Crocodiles.
Similar to Crocodiles, Alligators are not so skilled when fighting on land (their skill being reduced by 2 points), but if they can lure or drag their prey into the water to fight, they will prove deadly opponents.
This is represented by making an opponent fighting a Alligator reduce their skill by 1 whilst in the water. Alternatively, there are a range of skill modifiers for combat depending on whether the victim is knee-deep in water (-2), waist-deep (-4), up to their neck (-6), or swimming (-8).
- Alligators are known for their voracious appetites, and they spend much of their day swimming in search of fish, or larger prey if they are lucky, visible only as a pair of eyes peeking out above the surface of the water. The rest of the time they will be basking on the shore in the sun. Alligators may be tremendously aggressive, and are not afraid to attack men or other creatures which disturb them.
- An excellent away to avoid the attack of a Alligator is to thrust an iron bar between its jaws as it attacks. This wedges its jaws open and renders it helpless.
