A Tortoise is an animal companion. It has high toughness, carries lots of cargo, and has some useful combat dice.
This pack animal can only be obtained by finding a rare mysterious egg when looting an Elephant Graveyard. After the egg remains in the player's inventory for a few days, a baby tortoise hatches. The baby tortoise must be kept for a few more days before it will grow up to become a giant tortoise. When the tortoise matures, the player must choose whether to free the tortoise or to use it as a companion of the expedition.
