Batu Solidity (Su)
A rakasa batu’s body is in a constant state of flux, constantly traversing the dimensions even as the creature stalks the Material Plane.
Whenever a rakasa batu is damaged by an attack (or a combat maneuver is successfully performed against it) there is a 30% chance the attack strikes a part of its body that is incorporeal. Weapons with the ghost touch enchantment and area effects effect and damage a rakasa batu normally.
Environment Elemental Planes of Earth, underground
These mysterious entities first appeared along the Amber Roads shortly before the Confluence, blocking certain passages in an attempt to curb the destruction soon to wreck havoc across the interplanar transitway.
Their efforts were for naught, but the creatures found spiritual kinship with dwarves, in particular the zwerc—rakasa batu emissaries can now be found in virtually every one of their pocket demiplanes and as time passes, more and more frequently in endless caves. Encountering one of these creatures in the Underworld can be a dangerous proposition; they know much about the world around them and the veils between planes, but those who raise its ire can quickly find themselves buried underneath stone.
Rakasa batu are generally 13 feet tall or larger, but can weigh between 300 and 6,000 pounds.
