Strategies and Tactics
The Handy Watchbeast can attempt a variety of things, probably some of them involving 9 Attacks of Opportunity per round. When those fail, the Handy Watchbeast can use Break Time to run away.
A Handy Watchbeast is about to pick up a watch from a bear trap. When you come across it, however, it becomes very defensive, and tries to send you away.
Environment: Forests and places with a lot of gears or watches.
Alignment: Handy Watchbeasts are consumed with a desire to collect watches. Perhaps because this has a very measurable effect on their power. They care not for society, but aren't particularly spiteful, so they tend to be Chaotic Neutral.
