Ethereal Ambush (Ex)

A pandemonium basilisk that attacks foes on the Material Plane in a surprise round can take a full round of actions if it begins the combat by phasing into the Material Plane from the Ethereal Plane.

Ethereal Jaunt (Su)

A pandemonium basilisk can shift from the Ethereal Plane to the Material Plane as a free action, and shift back again as a move action (or as part of a move action). The ability is otherwise identical to ethereal jaunt (CL 15th).

Gaze (Su)

Creatures blinded if 8 HD or less for 2d4 rounds and affected by a random beam of color (as prismatic spray), range 30 feet, save DC 18 (see spell description), and caster level 11. The save DC is Charisma-based. Native to the islands of reality within the chaotic plane of Limbo, pandemonium basilisks occasionally find their way to the Material Plane. The ambush predators act as agents of chaos, tearing apart the world around them for the sheer pleasure it brings. Fortunately, the destructive creatures are easily distracted, and few maintain focus long enough to do irreparable damage.


Environment any (Limbo)
Organization solitary, pair, or colony (3-6)
Treasure incidental
