|Latching Attack||Leaps up and grabs onto the target's back, holding on and constantly gnawing on the target causing claw damage increased by melee power damage per round.

|Frenzy||With this skill the echo shiff flails claws madly at the target. The echo shiff has to roll a 1d10. The
number showed on the 1d10 represents how many claw slashes land onto the target, each doing claw
damage plus melee power damage but no critical hit chance. The target can try to evade each claw individually or defend against the entire attack, but cannot evade against the entire attack with one evade action.
|1 hex affecting 1 target||instant||4 skill points =

Perhaps one of the most malicious beasts, Echo Shiffs are more than willing to kill for the sake of killing and enjoy torturing their victims. They attack without provocations, are thieves, and will lie without moral dilemma or delay.
Echo Shiffs are hard to hit. In addition, Echo Shiffs are able of attacking four times faster than most other races, giving them 4 attacks for one action. These extra attack actions can only be used for normal attacks however, and not skill usage. Their two major weaknesses is their ability to get distracted with the idea of torture and their inability to decide upon a group leader. Echo Shiffs are never alone and are always encountered in odd numbered groups from three to twenty three.
5d20 worth of Shillings: You may loot the body for 5d20 worth of shillings. If you are trying to pick pocket or steal the money from a living target, you will first need to determine how much shillings the target has by rolling 5d20. Then on a successful pick pocket or steal you will roll the percent dice, getting a percentage of the target's money.
Any and All Available Loot: You may loot the body of any weapons, armor, and other goods. Only the holster and back pack can be stolen from a living target.
Echo Shiff Claws: You may remove the claws of a dead Echo Shiff. Each claw weighs 0.5 pounds and has the same values as steel, except that its attack value is 5 + 2d8 and its worth is 9.00 (all values per pound), making each claw worth 4.50. Each echo shiff has a total of 8 claws. Claws cannot be used like other materials to make weapons however you can make a set of claw weapons with the claws, or attach the claws to your gloves or gauntlets to use them as a weapon.
