SPECIAL ABILITIES

Freeze (Ex)

A green guardian can hold itself so still it appears to be a statue. A green guardian that uses freeze can take 20 on its Stealth check to hide in plain sight as a stone statue.

Reanimation (Ex)

The eyes of a green guardian gargoyle are made of two pieces of jet (500 gp each) that detect as both magic (faint conjuration) and evil. After being destroyed, a green guardian automatically reanimates in 1d8+2 days unless the eye gems are crushed and disenchanted with both dispel magic (DC 15) and remove curse.

ECOLOGY

Environment any land, aquatic, and underground
Organization solitary, pair, or wing (5–16)
Treasure standard plus 2 gems (500 gp value) in eyes

Several different varieties of gargoyles exist. For all their differences, they do share some common traits. They prefer to remain still and then suddenly attack or dive into their prey. Green guardians attempt to hold their victims and then fly off with them. A group of margoyles and/or gargoyles works in unison to bring down their opponents.

Gargoyle’s natural weapons are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
