Draaki

Draaki CR 1/2

Thin scales cover this humanoid’s body as it crouches in the darkness, its beady eyes carefully regarding everything around it. The frill along its head and neck speak of draconic ancestry, as do the horns jutting from the creature’s skull, but it certainly doesn’t seem very regal or powerful.

TACTICS

Before Combat Draaki evaluate threats from as far away as possible and if it doesn’t seem like a valuable exchange is likely, avoid combat at all costs (though if they far outnumber a foe there is little hesitation).

During Combat Draaki close and flank with each other, attacking as many times as possible as quickly as possible and focusing on the same target.

Morale Draaki are cowardly and flee as soon as they are damaged.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Graldin Breath Weapon (Su)

Graldin draaki receive a 20- ft. line of fire breath weapon. Once per day, as a standard action the graldin draaki can make a supernatural breath weapon attack that deals 1d6 points of the damage type chosen in the area chosen. All creatures within the affected area must make a Reflex saving throw to avoid taking damage. The save DC against this breath weapon is 10 + 1/2 the graldin draaki’s character level + the graldin draaki’s Constitution modifier (success negates).

ECOLOGY

Treasure standard (chain shirt, daggers [6], short swords [2])

The lowly draaki once ruled the underworld, cast down long ago. All of their race were transformed by calamity, made into scavenger’s endless caves, though now they are far more cautious of what lurks in the dark.

Draaki are around 6 and 1/2 ft. tall and weigh about 230 pounds.
