When a character chooses a favored opponent, the character is granted bonuses when fighting creatures of a specified race or species. The exception is that the common player character races can not be selected for this heroic characteristic (instead use Crippling Strike HC). Acceptable opponent types or classes are Goblins, Dragons, Kobolds, Common Game Animals (deer, elk, antelope, rabbits, etc.), Common Predatory Animals (bears, wolves, coyotes, foxes, etc.), Spectral Undead, Lesser Corporeal Mindless Undead, Vampires, etc. Some categories, such as Demons or Undead, are too broad and must be narrowed down to a specific type. Seek approval from the game keeper before taking this HC. This HC can be taken multiple times, each time it applies to a different type of creature.

When fighting a creature that belongs to that class of opponent, the hero gains the following bonuses: +5 AV to hit, Staging is increased by +5, and a +5 bonus to all WILL or SPIRIT saves versus spells or abilities used by members of that species.
