The boar or wild boar is a more ornery and dangerous cousin of the domesticated pig. They can be found in the woodlands and forests throughout the realms, and are frequently hunted for their flesh, which is considered a delicacy.  

Habitat and Ecology

  Boars can breed freely and quickly, and eat voraciously and omnivorously, making them a menace to farmers and food storage. They become more aggressive during mating season, with males growing additional flesh to protect themselves during conflicts over mates, but otherwise attack only in self-defense.    

Boar Hunting

  Boars are often hunted with special spears that include a cross-beam that keep the impaled animal from pushing forward and goring its attacker with its powerful tusks.    

Uses of Boars

  Boars are omnivores that will not shy away from eating anything remotely palatable. This makes them useful for disposing of garbage, and boars are sometimes kept by orcs or kobolds, who use them as mounts and let them roam free in their camps, or by thieves' guilds for getting rid of organic evidence. They are also trained to become warbeasts and guard animals.
