New Creature: This Great Cat Specializes in Taking Down a Single Enemy
This new "monster" is based off of the tiger entry from the MM2. It has been converted to specialize in stalking and surprise, looking to take down solitary, unaware enemies as fast as it can and then dragging them off to hide with them and eat them, much like a cougar or puma of our world would do. It gives up some of the tiger's strength and size and staying power in return for causing a lot more damage whenever it obtains a surprise attack or combat advantage. It likes to look for distracted prey on the periphery of battle, striking at solitary and weakened targets whenever they wander away from the company of others. It will attempt to stay hidden until it can single out one victim to stalk. After that, it will pounce the chosen victim with a combination of charging pounce and quick
Great cats hunt alone, but they can be found in mated pairs, or with siblings, or with young (a single cub or a pair of cubs). Great Cats join in on others' combats to make a quick meal of the weak and the weary.
