Outriders are ferocious monsters known for their great strength and almost suicidal bloodlust.

Monstrous Appearance. An outrider’s body is almost a mockery of the human form. Their limbs and torsos are laden with powerful muscles. They possess four arms ending in wicked claws, giving them a hunched posture, and when not beating their victims to death they drop to all six limbs in order to run at great speed. Their heads are smooth oblongs devoid of any visible facial features beyond a gaping mouth full of sharp teeth.

Unrelenting Savagery. Outriders are driven by a single, overwhelming impulse: to rip apart any living thing that is not one of their own kind. They charge toward their foes in a great horde, more closely resembling a stampede of wild animals than any sort of organized army, and fall upon their foes with tooth and nail, raking, biting, and tearing until there is nothing left to kill. Only then do the beasts tire and become placid, until they detect something else that must be destroyed.
An outrider’s need to destroy other creatures is so all-consuming that it overrides any thought of self-preservation. These horrid creatures have been known to try and force themselves through gaps in a castle’s portcullis to get at the innocents within, mangling their own limbs and often killing themselves in the process. The sight of a horde of outriders mutilating themselves in an effort to get past a fortress’s defenses can leave its defenders highly unnerved, and few souls would wish to face these monsters in combat.

Weaponized Beasts. Outriders cannot be tamed or trained to use weapons, but their limited intelligence and universal hostility has not stopped many a would-be conqueror from trying to exploit them. Canny tyrants have found ways to corral the beasts in the holds of ships so that they can be transported to the battlefield and unleashed upon their enemies.
