The Hircocervis is a being renowned for its love of music. It will spend its thousand-year life roaming the Planes in search of new music, and can, once per month, cross the lines of Planar Probability, traveling across dimensions and time, in the roaming expendition of its quest.

All heard sound, communication, and music is permanently and perfectly recorded into the creatures memory and can be recalled audibly at will. This ability gives the Hircocervis special powers equalling any 23rd level Bard, except LEGEND LORE. Other similar spell-like powers is bestows at will are: OTTO'S IRRESISTABLE DANCE, CHARM/HOLD PERSON/MONSTER, CONFUSION, and FEEBLEMIND, all cast as a 21st-level Magic-User or Illusionist.

These beings are usually peaceful, preferring escape over conflict. It has a 90% chance of being able to travel using is natural PLANE SHIFT-like ability, but in a pinch can bite with its oversized mouth which carries an effect equalling a SWORD OF SHARPNESS.

Hircocervi are rarely alarmed by the presence of unthreatening persons, and will even engage in social interaction with those of a particular intelligence, or at least an appreciation of good music (especially Bards!). But once notions of gain or life-threatening adventure come up, it will probably lose interest in the conversation very quickly.
