This creature appears to be just like any old Caribou, until it leaps into the air. Flying at an incredible speed, it easily escapes hunters.

Exactly who bred Flying Reindeer is unknown, but they are slightly more enduring (and obviously more magical) than the standard, run of the mill Caribou. Flying Reindeer are a rare and special sight indeed, and, when found, is often attributed as a sign of good luck. Many more primitive peoples of the northern wastes see Flying Reindeers as good omens, and that their appearance shall bring good gifts to their tribe over the winter.

Flying Reindeer are usually seen in groups with of their own kind, but may occasionally be seen in integrated herds with the more mundane breed.

Flying Reindeer rarely engage in combat, preferring to flee using their supernatural flight. When forced into combat, they prefer to bull rush past opponents before escaping.

Flight (Su): This functions as regular flight, except it is supernatural in nature. As a result, an anti-magic field leaves a Flying Reindeer grounded.

Spell-like Abilities: 3/day- Snowsight*, Obscuring Snow*. Caster Level 3rd.

Easy Learner: Flying Reindeer are very easily trained, and as a result DCs to train them decrease by -2. The amount of weeks necessary to teach a Flying Reindeer a trick is reduced by one (minimum one week).

Carrying Capacity: Light load 99 pounds or less; medium load 100 to 199 pounds; heavy load 200 to 400 pounds. A flying Reindeer can drag 2,000 pounds.
