Pounce. If the torvosaurus moves at least 30 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a claw attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 17 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the torvosaurus can make one bite attack against it as a bonus action.

Rampage. When the torvosaurus reduces a creature to 0 hit points with a melee attack on its turn, the torvosaurus can take a bonus action to move up to half its speed and make a bite attack.

ACTIONS

Multiattack. The torvosaurus makes three melee attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws. It can make one tail attack in place of its two claw attacks, but it can't use its bite and its tail on the same target.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (2d12 + 7) piercing damage. If the target is a Medium or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 17). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained and the torvosaurus can't bite another target.

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d8 + 7) slashing damage.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (3d8 + 7) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a Medium or smaller creature, it must make a DC 17 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.

If a dinosaur had to be picked to rival the tyrannosaurus, torvosaurus is most certainly a contender. With a name that means "savage lizard", torvosaurus is a massive, voracious hunter with a giant head and strong claws. This is a hunter that regularly competes with the infamous Allosaurus. A large megalosaur with a nasty attitude, many poachers in the Arkamata region have fallen prey to a Torvosaurus. The Torvosaurus is well known for its determination, stalking one prey item for weeks. Daorth Maelul, the infamous elvish big game hunter, once encountered a Torvosaurus after he brought down a Ceratosaurus on Kaiser's Ridge near Mount Gorepath. He was field dressing the Cerato with his companion, General Alkolon Greyviious. The two men were just finishing up and about to deploy the flare to signal, when the 2 men were ambushed by a wandering Torvosaurus buck(male) who smelled the kill. Unfortunately, Greyviious was not lucky and was taken by it, still kicking and screaming. He never made it out of there alive. Maelul tracked the Torvo to its lair shot at the creature 3 times before eventually being forced to flee. Maelul tried to get back to civilization with what was left of his Cerato, but all the men abandoned him when they heard that he injured a Torvosaurus without killing it, as that is a death omen. Eventually, the Torvo caught up with Maelul and ripped him to shreds on the cold Autumn night of October 31. The only remains recovered were his clothes delicately piled beside the stream below the Torvo's lair and what has been presumed to be his crushed up skeleton.
