Known Rocs Edit

  • Jester was on watch during the group's journey through the Barbed Fields and watched a Roc hunting about 150 feet from their camp at the base of a giant tree.[3] The next day, they encountered the Roc in its nest after Beauregard, Fjord and Jester climbed the tree, whilst Caleb transformed into a giant eagle and carried Nott into the canopy.[4] The Roc spotted them and attacked. In something of a panic, the group jumped from the canopy as Nott cast featherfall.[5]  Jester tried to disguise herself as a leaf, Nott turned invisible and Fjord was caught by the giant bird. Once the others had landed, Jester managed to polymorph the Roc into a small bat which she then captured in her cloak.  Unfortunately this caused Fjord to fall to the ground, receiving massive damage. Once this was dealt with, they took the opportunity to loot its nest before making their escape.[6]
