Monster Manual Reskins: Boars

Wild boars the hairy wild forest pigs people hunt. Domestic pigs are a tad less hairy and not as dangerous but could still kill a first level party. They are favorite beasts of many gods and are often magical guardians. Most are harmless forest creatures but occasionally someone startles a wild herd or a lone boar invades human land to cause mayhem. Some cults love them others hate them.
