Beak. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (2d4 + 2) piercing damage.
Dire ravens are usually found either by themselves, or with one other dire raven. In either case, they will be accompanied by two to sixteen normal ravens. The normal ravens will disperse if either dire raven is defeated, however, defeating one dire raven of a pair will cause the other to fight to the death. Their most common motives for attacking are shiny baubles that they desire for their nests, food, and trespass upon their perceived territory.
