Featured Creature: Skunk

NOTE: These stats have been edited to conform to the rules revisions posted on 9/8/15.
Skunks are a sub-species of badger, but you wouldn’t know it from their demeanor.  Where badgers are ornery and often vicious, skunks are quiet and meek.  They will usually avoid confrontations (unless hunting for food) until their musk attack is their only option.  Because of their smelly musk, however, it is difficult for skunks to make non-skunk friends;  if they finally do, their new friends will find them gentle and loyal unto death.
