SPECIAL ABILITIES

Guarded Thoughts (Ex)

Mahanaga are immune to any form of mind reading, such as that granted by detect thoughts. This ability also grants a +2 racial bonus on all saves against charm effects.

Oversized Maw (Ex)

The collection of membranous skin surrounding the jaw of this creature has led many to underestimate the powerful bite that the mahanaga can deliver. If forced into a melee combat battle or cornered, the mahanaga will make use of its bite attack. A mahanaga’s maw is immensely large, and this ability increases the damage dice of its bite attack as if it was two size categories larger.

Poison (Ex)

Sting – injury; save Fort DC 23; frequency 1 round; effect frog for 4 rounds; cure 1 save. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Tongue (Su)

A mahanaga licks a nearby unsuspecting foe, making a melee touch attack (+18). If it hits, the target must make a Will save (DC 18) or be inflicted with the Sleep status effect for 1d8+4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Dungeoneering DC 21).
