Once every 1d4 rounds as a swift action, a duneshaker can spew toxin in a 30-foot cone. A creature in this area must succeed at a DC 30 Reflex save or be exposed to the duneshaker’s poison (see below). The save DC is Constitution-based.

Duneshaker Poison: Spray—contact; save Fort DC 30; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d4 Con damage plus permanent blindness; cure 2 consecutive saves.

The largest of the known solifugids in the entire world, the duneshaker has a fearsome reputation for dealing death and destruction to caravans and other travelers in the deep desert. Beyond its reputation for carnage, the beast also is known for its extreme toxicity.
