Adaptive Strike (Su)

An ourdivar’s natural weapons count as chaotic and magical for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. An ourdivar can change the physical shape of its slam attack to change the damage type it deals to bludgeoning, slashing, or piercing as a swift action.

Warpwave Exit (Su)

An ourdivar that is killed or banished erupts in a wave of chaotic energy, affecting 1d4+1 non-protean corporeal creatures within 15 feet with a minor warpwave. Roll 1d10 and consult the following list for the effect it has on each creature. If a minor warpwave duplicates a spell effect, the caster level of that spell effect is equal to the ourdivar’s CR (CL 4th for the typical ourdivar).

Targets can resist the warpwave’s effect with a successful DC 15 Fortitude save. The save DC is Constitution-based.

d10 Warpwave Effect
1 2 points of Str, Dex, or Con damage (random).
2 2 points of Int, Wis, or Cha damage (random).
3 Blinded or deafened (random) for 1d4 rounds.
4 Fatigued (or exhausted if already fatigued).
5 Target gains the effects of slow.
6 Target gains a +2 enhancement bonus to Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution (random) for 24 hours.
7 Target gains a +2 enhancement bonus to Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma (random) for 24 hours.
8 Target gains the effects of protection from law.
9 Target gains 3d6 temporary hit points.
10 Target gains the effects of haste.


Environment any (Maelstrom)
Organization solitary, pair, or breach (3–5)
Treasure none

Ourdivars are spontaneously formed when called forth via spells like lesser planar ally. They toil at the behest of their conjurer creators, acting as tools of chaos across the planes.

An ourdivar is 12 feet long and weighs 700 pounds.
