Foxes were a common animal found throughout Faerûn.

Description[]

Foxes had large ears[4], long red fur and a bushy tail.[3]

Abilities[]

Foxes were known for their excellent senses of hearing, smell and vision.[2] They were very agile and were able to evade predators with ease.[1]

As a familiar to a sorcerer or wizard, foxes gained the innate ability to duplicate the effects of the dimension door spell three times per day. This ability functioned similar to a dryad, where the fox was only able to dimension door into a bush or a tree.[4]

Behavior[]

Foxes were cunning animals.[1]

Combat[]

Foxes were excellent hunters.[1]

Ecology[]

Foxes were carnivores but would eat plants if desperate. They preferred insects and rotting meat.[3]

Habitats[]

Foxes lived in various climates and terrains. On Toril, they were known to live in Anauroch[5], Cormanthor[6] , the Farsea Marshes[7], Fox Ridge in Shadowdale[8], Thar[9], and the Vast Swamp[10]

In the Moonshae Isles, foxes could be found throughout many of its lowland deciduous forests.[11]

In the Unapproachable East, foxes could be found in the Tannath Gap, Yuirwood, Ashenwood, and across the central plains of Rashemen.[12]

Beyond Toril, foxes could be found on the planet Garden.[13] And beyond the Prime Material plane, foxes could be found on the Brux layer of the Beastlands.[14]

Relationships[]

According to Qukoku, the guiding philosophy of the Iulutiun and Angulutiun peoples of the Great Glacier, the fox was an utqukoku animal representing patience.[15]

Usages[]

Foxes were hunted for their pelts, which were worth between three and five gp at the market.[2] Foxes were often kept as familiars.[1]
