Antilocaprids in GURPS

Antilocaprids are a group of horned, cloven-hooved, ruminating, cud-chewing mammals. Today only one species still survives, the pronghorn of western North America. In prehistoric times antilocaprids were common in North America. Most fossils, and the living pronghorn, are found in open, dry environments, suggesting that most antilocaprids are creatures of the open plains.

Antilocaprids occupy the same niches as bovids. Most of the general descriptions for bovids also apply to antilocaprids.

The radio button entries in the table above give typical sizes of the antilocaprid species of the selected sex. If you want a larger or smaller specimen, enter the weight in kg manually.

The Captive checkbox is for animals that have been kept in captivity all their lives, without the ability to hone their skills like their wild relatives. It would be appropriate for an animal kept in a zoo.

Marking the T? checkbox will give you the stats in template form with all costs listed, otherwise you get a stat sheet as for a character.

Marking the HR? checkbox will print the information using all my house rules. Otherwise, the stats will be as compatable with plain vanilla GURPS as possible (although several custom advantages and disadvantages will be present, see my Traits page).
