Aizskartz Asteroid

Aizskartz Asteroid CR 11

TACTICS

Before Combat An aizskartz asteroid uses its control of psionic energy to masquerade as an asteroid with a dense gaseous exterior, sneaking up on unsuspecting foes until they are within range for a charge attack.

During Combat First the aizskartz asteroid flings itself at enemies with a charging bull rush, using Power Attack and Improved Vital Strike to deal the optimum amount of damage immediately (slam +20, 12d6+48). Afterward its gravitic field grabs up foes, and the aizskartz asteroid slams again with bull rush to increase the damage opponents take when they are drawn to its surface once more. Any opponents that attempt to teleport away are placed 15 ft. away from its surface if it successfully uses divert teleport against them.

Morale Few foes can stand against an aizskartz asteroid and retreat is an unlikely option at best.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Gravitic Field (Ps)

Any creature within 15 ft. of an aizskartz asteroid must make a DC 30 Fortitude save or be pulled by the pulsing microgravity field and against the aizskartz asteroid.

For each 5 ft. a creature travels within the gravitic field, they take 3d6 points of bludgeoning damage and are subject to a grapple combat maneuver by the aizskartz asteroid at the end of their turn. An aizskartz asteroid can grapple up to ten creatures simultaneously with no penalty. Additionally, this grants the aizskartz asteroid a +4 deflection bonus to AC.

ECOLOGY

Environment space
Organization solitary
Treasure quadruple

Aizskartz asteroids are great masses of psionically empowered stone that wander the cosmos destroying entire fleets of ships—and if what some legends claim are true, entire civilizations. Little is known about these anomalies, save that they are to be avoided at all costs.
