Swoop. A roc usually cruises at a height of about 300 feet, seeking out likely prey with its sharp eyes. When a good target is found, it swoops down silently. The stealth of this first attack imposes a -5 penalty to its opponents’ surprise rolls. The roc swoops down upon prey, seizes it in powerful talons, and carries it off to the roc’s lair to be devoured at leisure. The resulting damage is 3d6 per claw. Once the prey has been secured, the roc flies back to its nest. If the creature resists, the roc strikes with its beak, inflicting 4d6 points of damage per hit.
