Desc Bardelots are rats that have replaced the polar bear. The males look

very similar to polar bears and the only noticable difference are the

teeth. Females are saber-toothed and larger than the males but otherwise

look identical to the male.

Cmbt Bardelot males act as polar bears and mostly eat seals. They lie

quietly near breathing holes in the ice and when a seal comes up, the

male tries to drag it on to the ice. Females hunt the large herbivores

that feed on the mutant plants that live on the ice. They also ambush

their prey, and in doing so incur a a step penalty to anyones perception

roll.

Hab Males live out on the ice packs hunting for seals and small whales.

They come inland only during the mating season. Females live on the edges

of the icy wastes near the snow line (the snow line is where trees

disappear, the tree line is where the the last hardwoods are replaced by

conifers). Rarely, if the prey herds have disappeared, a female might

migrate south in the winter as far as southern Alaska.

Soc Bardelots live a very solitary life style due to the limited food

supply. They will kill each other over territory and are only sociable

durning mating season.
