Attacks and techniques
This creature has only one technique: Steal.
|Damage type||Range||MAPT||IS||LDV||Pain (All ACs)|
- Inflicts no Pain or Limb Damage.
- The creature will attempt to steal a random equipped weapon, piece of LBE or piece of clothing or armor from the target's inventory.
- If there are no compatible items in the target's inventory, the technique fails automatically.
- Otherwise, both the attacking creature and the target creature must roll 2d6+Agi to determine whether the stealing attempt succeeds.
- If the attacker's roll is equal or superior to the target's, Steal is successful.
- On a success, the creature will steal one random item among the listed possibilities above, which will be carried in hands (not transferred in inventory). Once the stolen item is in hands, the creature will immediately prioritize fleeing from the room.

Primates are a category of quadrupedal creatures capable of standing upright on their hind legs. They are considered to be the closest genetic ancestors of humans. All primates may be colloquially referred to as "monkeys", however this is a colloquial term and is not considered a correct term.
Chimpanzees are the smallest of the primates in the Mazes. Though they are considered the least dangerous, they can still be a huge nuisance to adventurers, particularly when encountered in large groups.
On average, they reach a height of about 4 feet when standing upright, and weigh between 90 and 130 pounds. Their bodies are covered in brown or black hair, their feet resemble hands, and they do not possess tails. Chimpanzees are reputed for their agility and dexterity; their hand-shaped feet are just as dexterous as their "true" hands, with which they use to grab and manipulate objects or for climbing and hanging off of surfaces.
Although biological testing has revealed that all primates are true omnivores, chimpanzees, like gorillas, have a heavy preference for fresh fruits supplemented with plants and herbs. This diet is where the stereotype of the banana-eating monkey comes from.
These creatures have a notorious reputation for being mischievous and prone to thievery. They are not afraid of sapients, and react to invasions of their personal space or territory by emitting loud screams and agitated gestures. If given the opportunity, a chimpanzee will not hesitate to grab onto an adventurer's gear to try to take an object from them. Sometimes, it can be as innocuous as a hat or a pendant, but more aggressive chimpanzees have been known to try and steal tactical vests, utility belts, weapons from holsters, slings or scabbards, or even the very clothes that are on a person's back - with a surprising degree of success.
If you are not careful, a group of chimpanzees can quite literally strip you clean. It is best to leave these creatures to their own devices or to try and throw decoy, useless objects to distract them rather than try to fight them. If you must fight, prioritize stealth and ranged weapons or be as scary and intimidating as possible; chimpanzees are not fighting creatures and will save themselves rather than expose themselves to known danger.
