‎Sahuagin Mutant, Four-Armed


This burly humanoid has sharp scales and fins like some predatory fish. As if its maw full of serrated teeth were not intimidating enough, the monstrosity clenches deadly claws at the ends of four powerful arms.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Blood Frenzy (Ex)

Once per day, a four-armed sahuagin that takes damage in combat can fly into a frenzy in the following round. It gains a +2 bonus to its Constitution and Strength, but takes a –2 penalty to its AC. The frenzy lasts as long as the battle or 1 minute, whichever is shorter.

Multiweapon Mastery (Ex)

A four-armed sahuagin never takes penalties on attack rolls when fighting with multiple weapons, and treats claws as primary attacks even when also wielding weapons.

Speak with Sharks (Su)

A four-armed sahuagin can communicate telepathically with sharks to a distance of 150 feet. This communication is limited to simple concepts, such as “come here,” “defend me,” or “attack this target.”


ECOLOGY

Environment temperate or warm ocean
Organization solitary, pair, unit (1 plus 3–18 sahuagin), royal guard (2–8 plus 1 sahuagin chieftain of 4th level)
Treasure NPC gear (trident, other treasure)

The unpredictability and viciousness of the sahuagin race isn’t just an aspect of their sharklike temperament—it seems to be inherent in their very beings. The unusual and typically deadly mutants common to the race attest to this, their forms altering and becoming more deadly based either on the needs of the community or ambiguous environmental factors. Whatever the case, sahuagin mutants often rise to positions of respect and influence in sahuagin communities, their innate advantages instantly placing them among their people’s rulers. Of these mutants, four-armed sahuagin brutes and malenti—sahuagin with the appearances of sea elves—arise most commonly, though these are in no way the only sahuagin mutants known to the savage seas.
