The Wild Hog is a fairly common creature in the forest. Because of their high numbers and aggressive nature, they’re hunted regularly. They can be easily captured and used on the battlefield as an attack animal, but their behavior is unpredictable.
Because of their high numbers, the market for Wild Hog is saturated with products which keep prices low. Their tusks can be carved and used in trinkets and jewelry. Their hides are extremely thick with dense fur which allows it to be used in medium strength armor or heavy clothing for cold weather. Their meat is included in most recipes because of its commonality. Stews, skewers, steaks, wild hog patties, Hogburgers, are all sold from street vendors throughout towns across Eucos.
If you’re alone and encounter a Wild Hog, climb a tree, or try to distract it by throwing a stone or other object away from you. They are terrible climbers but can run unusually fast due to their large forelegs that resemble mortal arms with hooves. If you’re with someone else, just make sure you can run faster than they can.
