Zvucni

Zvucni CR 1

Loping forward on two hind legs supported by forelimbs that end in wicked bone talons, the patterns on the skull of this hideous freakish blue-black beast illuminate a disconcerting yellow light.

TACTICS

Before Combat Zvucni attempt to hide somewhere within range of a point they can make a charge attack to after stunning their prey.

During Combat Zvucni make talon attacks, relying on their stunning bark for opponents that are difficult to hit.

Morale Zvucni instinctively flee when reduced to 5 hp or less.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Stunning Bark (Ex)

A zvucni can, as a standard action (that does not provoke attacks of opportunity), let out a sonic cry as a ranged touch attack that deals 1d10 sonic damage to a target within 100 feet. A creature that takes damage from a zvucni’s stunning bark makes a DC 14 Fortitude save or is stunned for 1 round. This is a sonic effect and the save DC is Constitution-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment underground
Organization solitary, pair, or pack (6–18)
Treasure none

When vestraadi come upon a recently drowned corpse, sometimes their mystics use their strange and enigmatic songs to bond the carcass with an ooze in an hour long ritual. What results is a zvucni, often made to be mounts for excursions out of the water and kept as watchdogs in their aquatic settlements.
