- This modifier applies to the bull rush, grapple, overrun, and trip special attacks.
- Biped’s height, quadruped’s body length (nose to base of tail)
- Assumes that the creature is roughly as dense as a regular animal. A creature made of stone will weigh considerably more. A gaseous creature will weigh much less.
- These values are typical for creatures of the indicated size. Some exceptions exist.

**Something Fun: **I like to use the The Measure of Things to enter a measurement to see comparisons. This can really help you give characters a perspective of monsters’ sizes. Like comparing an Ancient Blue Dragon (Gargantuan 16-125 tons) to a blue whale. Say 100 tons of dragon is 90% as heavy as a Blue Whale. Just a cool thing to give some perspective.
