  • QL 1: War dogs are bred mainly by orcs, who use them for combat and intimidation.
  • QL 2: War dogs do not normally flee, even when badly hurt.
  • QL 3+: Light wounds are enough to send the dogs into a state of frenzy that only ends when their prey is ripped apart.

Hunt: –1

Frenzied: War dogs can gain the state frenzied when injured. When they lose more than 3 LP from an attack, they receive –1 DE, +1 AT, and +1 DP. The state remains in effect until the opponent is killed, but no longer than 30 minutes.
