Yaks were large herd animals used as livestock in northern regions of Faerûn such as the Spine of the World and the Hordelands[7] and many elevated regions like the mighty Yehimal Mountains.[5][6][8]

EcologyEdit

Domesticated yaks were employed for a variety of uses, such as beasts of burden and sources of wool and milk. Yak butter, a soft cream cheese, was a characteristic product from yak-raising regions.[9][7]

HistoryEdit

Sometime after the War of the Silver Marches, a village of yakfolk near Ironslag kept large herds of yaks.[9]

NotesEdit

  1. The Dragon magazine 137 article has an animal conversion table that equates yak to buffalo, so the Monster Manual 1st edition reference is for the entry on buffalo.
