SPECIAL ABILITIES

Acid Spray (Ex)

A digester can spray acid in a 20-foot cone, dealing 4d8 points of damage to everything in that area. The digester can also choose to deliver a concentrated stream of acid that deals 8d8 points of damage against a single target within 5 feet. A DC 17 Reflex save halves the damage for both the cone and the stream. A digester may only use this ability once every 1d4 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment warm forests or temperate plains
Organization solitary, pack (3-6), or herd (7-20)
Treasure none

Digesters are sometimes called stomachs on legs. The creatures spend their lives trolling for prey on two power-ful legs or in hiding, waiting for a meal to come to them. The creatures inhabit any region where food is plentiful, from forests to savannahs. They are most plentiful in open spaces where their long, powerful legs allow them to run down prey.

The digester is a simple combatant. It dissolves prey with its acid spray and then sucks up the resulting organic mate-rial as it if were a thick soup. If the first application does not do the job, the digester attacks with its claws until it is able to use its acid spray again.
