Keythong

Keythong are wingless cousins to the gryphon. Besides the lack of wings, the other major difference between these two is the keythong’s metallic skin which is also covered in spikes on both its ventral and dorsal sides. Obviously, these spikes prevent them from being used as mounts, except in extremely rare cases. Further, its hide permits a special reaction against any person being engaged in melee in an adjacent hex. However, even the typical skinning skill cannot properly remove its hide. Any melee attack against a keythong within 5 feet exposes the combatant to a d20 (no bonus) collateral-damage response from its skin at the end of the combatant's turn. If successful, it will inflict a single point of edged damage. This defense is not part of a keythong's normal attack sequence nor does it count as a reaction. Like their cousins, these beasts love a meal of horse meat.
