Kaberus

From Wiki of Worlds Unknown
Jump to: navigation, search

A reddish sheen plays across the surface of your weapon as a trio of wolf howls split the air. With a loud crack, a vortex of smoke and flame erupts from a cleft in the ground. In an instant, the eruption coalesces into a bear-sized hound with reddish-black fur, and three heads. Its eyes burn with a sinister red glow, and a green mist seeps from its mouths when it bares its silver teeth with savage grin.

Special Abilities

Miasma (Su) As a full attack, Kaberus can simultaneously use the breath weapon of all three of its heads to create a 10-ft radius cloud of acid around itself that deals damage to any creature inside of it. When it's created, anyone inside the area takes 6d6 damage, with a Reflex save for half damage. The number of damage dice rolled is halved each round until the result would be less than 1d6 (6d6, 3d6, 1d6, dispersed). Any creature that starts its turn inside the cloud takes damage, but can make a Reflex save for half. A strong wind, such as that created by a gust of wind, disperses the cloud in 1 round. Note that this ability requires all 3 of Kaberus' heads to have their breath weapon available, and it counts as a use of each head's breath weapon when the cloud is created.
