Rhinoceroses are the GM’s reason to learn Pathfinder’s powerful charge rules.
Woolly rhinoceroses are the GM’s reason to learn Pathfinder’s powerful charge and trample rules.
An adventuring party is trying to skirt a herd of rhinoceroses when a roc attacks, hoping to pick off a calf. Panicked, the rhinos head straight for the party.
A party needs advice from a tundra sprite. Rather than make permanent homes, these frost-rimed fey live on the backs of woolly mammoths…so half the challenge in meeting the sprite is doing so without disturbing its temperamental host.
A catfolk druid objects to an adventuring party’s campfire, as a drought has left the veldt tinder-dry. If she cannot douse the parties fire with magic, she will send her rhinoceros animal companion into their midst to stamp it out, trusting its tough hide to protect it.

This has been a tough year for rhinoceroses.
