Given the number of monstrous and magical predators roaming the North, deer make up an important part of the ecology of the Silver Marches. Female deer are also known as does or hinds, while male deer are often called harts or stags. Deer flee most encounters, and fight only when trapped or in rut.

Skills: Deer receive a +2 racial bonus on Hide checks.
