If it's on a faceplate, it's real.

They are an animal in midlight similar to a lynx in deadliness/method of attack. They have long incisors and retractable claws that are edged, like a sword.

They are based, I assume, on these:

Smilodon Fatalis - Saber-toothed cat
Uncia Uncia - Snow Leopard
Lynx Pardinus - Iberian Lynx

And other such animals.

And yes, they are 'real', within the setting. Culexus has skinned a few of them. They behave and the stories that mention them treat them as a carnivore with a similar temperment to a wolverine. They are highly aggressive, and terretorial, and will attack much larger and stronger opponents in attempt to chase them off. Giving them an underdog/cagefighter sorta appeal.

Ok, well that is neat-o then. I can stop picturing a house cat with a sword now.

Treehouse Archer

What's up with the attack that the treehouse archer uses? Is there any defense for it short of constantly checking the spawn? Is there actually a roll involved or just an auto-hit? And the wounds seem off. Even after getting the wound treated, stitched, and bandaged, it still seems to heal more slowly than comparable wounds.

Nothing you can do but stay in sheltered squares or when you see movement run up and nab him.

Fumble Recovery

How does the Fumble Recovery skill work after the first 50 ranks? Is there a measurable point where all your fumbles become, like, "begins to fumble but manages to hold on and execute an attack"?
