Description

"This immense eagle’s feathers are golden brown and shimmer in the light. Its sharp beak and curved talons are dark yellow."

A typical giant eagle stands about 15 feet tall, has a wingspan of up to 30 feet, and resembles its smaller cousins in nearly every way except size. It weighs 500 pounds.

They speak both Common and Auran.

Information

Giant eagles are intelligent, keen-eyed birds of prey that sometimes associate with good creatures

These are far more than animals — they possess a supernatural intellect and view themselves as guardians and protectors of their mountain territories. They form lasting friendships with those who respect them and their mountaintop domains.

Giant eagles attack creatures that appear threatening, especially those intent on raiding the eagles’ nest for eggs or fledglings, which fetch a handsome price in many civilized areas. Young eagles can be trained and are prized as aerial mounts.

Training as Mounts

Although intelligent, a giant eagle requires training before it knows how to fly in order to bear a rider in combat. To be allowed to instruct it in this task, a giant eagle must have a "Friendly" attitude toward the trainer (whether this is achieved through successful Diplomacy checks or other means).

Training a "Friendly" giant eagle requires 6 weeks of work and a successful Handle Animal check. Riding a giant eagle requires an exotic saddle. A giant eagle can fight while carrying a rider, but the rider can't also attack unless they succeed on a Ride check.
