Young (CR -1)

"Young" is an acquired template that can be added to any living creature. Creatures with the young template are immature specimens of the base creature, and lose the template when they reach adulthood. You can also use this simple template to easily create a smaller variant of a monster. This template cannot be applied to creatures that increase in power through aging or feeding (such as dragons or barghests) or creatures that are Fine-sized.
