SPECIAL ABILITIES

Blinding Spray (Ex)

By filling its mouth with muddy water, a muckdweller can fire a stream of muddy water in a 10-foot line. A creature hit must succeed on a DC 10 Reflex save or be blinded for 1d2 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based. A muckdweller can take a move action to refill its mouth with muddy water so it can use its spray again.

The muckdweller is a small, swamp-dwelling bipedal lizard that lives on a diet of carrion, fresh meat, plants, and insects. It has a long tail that allows it to swim rapidly through the water or maintain its balance when standing upright. Muckdwellers sometimes associate with lizardfolk.

Muckdwellers stand about 4 feet tall. They speak their own language of croaks and hisses, and a rare few speak Draconic.

The muckdweller attacks by squirting muddy water at its foes. When it successfully blinds an opponent, it darts in and bites with its sharp teeth.
