Combat Notes

Falgaa birds are foul tempered and easily angered. They tend to dive en mass, all making successive beak attacks against the same target until it is dead. While their diet typically consists of various seeds, nuts, and small rodents, they are more than willing to supplement their diet with a little carrion. Falgaa birds will overlook other creatures and not attack them if they are familiar with them, including man, however falgaa birds are not intimidated by size and are immune to fear. Falgaa birds are loud, making screeching loud chirps that can drive some beasts running and others into a frenzy.

Falgaa bird beaks can pierce steel, avoiding 20of the target's armor (20% damage is done to HP), but can also get stuck in the armor 25% of the time. They fight only with their beaks, and have a 20% chance of exploding when they are hit. There is also a 10% chance for dead falgaa birds to resurrect as a phoenix. Falgaa birds’ tempers cause them to attack any target in range, including other falgaa birds or allies. Trained falgaa birds do not share this trait. You can encounter anywhere from 1 to 30 or more.
