What do you fancy? Meanwhile, I'll correct the other Lycanthropes' empathy sections since they're just straightforward typos.
Go for "ovine empathy." Now we have to create dire sheep!
That'll work for me...
I've noticed something else about the Giant Sheep. It's described as "larger than a horse" but only weighs 700-900 pounds, which is light for a horse. An average riding horse is about 1000-1200 pounds and a heavy horse weighs 1500-2000 pounds or even more, with the world record estimated to be 3,360 pounds.
Scaling up some regular sheep breeds to be 6 feet at the shoulder (the height that AD&D gives Giant Rams) I came up with figures ranging from ~1400-2000 pounds.
Dire Animals are often portrayed as burlier than their normal counterparts, so I'll say an "average" Dire Sheep is 2,000 to 3,000 pounds.
EDIT: Hopefully I'll whip up a Dire Sheep later today but I have stuff to do over the next couple of hours.
Either way on the size.
And the Dire Sheep looks good!
I kind of like "no alignment"!
But mark 'em down for the next update, whenever that will be...
