A half-vrock has a hideous face that resembles the hooked visage of a vulture. Instead of hair, it has oily black feathers, which cover its large wings as well. Its hands end in sharp talons and it has a long, thin tail. Half-vrocks often serve as mercenaries or soldiers, pursuits in which their tendency to react to any perceived slight with violence is an advantage more often than not.
A half-vrock is covered with a fine layer of spores. As a free action, it can infest a creature it hits with a melee attack with these spores; the vrock must wait a minute before using its spores again. A creature targeted by a half-vrock’s spores becomes sickened by the pain caused by the spores for 2d4 rounds as they raise hideous welts on the victim’s flesh. This is a disease effect.
Once per day, a half-vrock can utter a shrill screech. All creatures except demons within a 30-foot-radius spread must succeed at a Fortitude save (DC = 10 + 1/2 the half-vrock’s HD + the half-vrock’s Con modifier) or be staggered for 1 round.
