Gazer

It floats before you, a large, bulbous body with a central, unblinking eye, and a large maw filled with dagger-like teeth. Smaller eyes, attached to wriggling stalks, sprout from the top of the orb-like body.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Flight (Ex)

Gazers are naturally buoyant which allows them to fly at a speed of 20 feet, as well as a permanent choco feather effect with personal range.

Eye Rays (Su)

The gazer can produce a ray from each of its 10 small eyes once per round as a free action. During a round, it may only aim 3 eye rays in any given 90 degree arc (forward, back, left, right, up, down). The rays (CL 18, save DC 21, duration of 1 minute, saves are Charisma-based) each have different effects:
Charm: The target must succeed on a Will save or be affected as though by the spell.

Confusion: The target must succeed on a Will save or be affected as though by the spell.

Disable: The target must succeed on a Fortitude save or be affected as though by the spell.

Elemental: The gazer can use any of the following spells: Stone III, Thunder III, Fire III, Water III, Blizzard III, or Aero III. The target must succeed on a saving throw according to the spell.

Enervation: The target must succeed on a Fortitude save or be affected as though by the spell.

Fear: This works like the spell, except that it targets one creature. The target must succeed on a Will save or be affected as though by the spell.

Immobilize: The target must succeed on a Fortitude save or be affected as though by the spell.

Statue: The target must succeed on a Fortitude save or be affected as though by the spell.

Sleep: This works like the spell, except that it affects one creature with any number of Hit Dice (Will negates).

Slow: This works like the spell, except that it affects one creature. The target can make a Will save to negate the effect.

Stop Gaze (Su)

A gazer’s central eye can produce a 150-foot cone of Stop status effect as a standard action. All creatures within the area of effect must make a Will save (DC 25) or be inflicted with the Stop status for 1 minute. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 9th level spell (Knowledge: Dungeoneering DC 33).
