Megaloclaw (CR 14)

A saberclaw subspecies that has grown to enormous proportions. For the first few years of its life, the megalowclaw can make a docile and lovable pet. Once awakened to its feral nature, however, the beast won’t think twice about feeding on the hand that fed it.

Eerie Howl (Su)

A megaloclaw can emit a loud, piercing howl within a 10-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect are inflicted with Disable status (Fortitude save DC 20 to negate) for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 25).

Fearful Bay (Su)

1/day, a megaloclaw can emit a howl within a 30-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect are inflicted with Panicked status effect expect for evil outsiders (Will save DC 19 to negate) for 1d4 rounds. This is a sonic, mind-affecting fear effect. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected by the same spell for 24 hours. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Pounce (Ex)

A megaloclaw can make a full attack when it makes a charge attack.

Powerful Charge (Ex)

A megaloclaw, when it makes a charge attack, he also deals double damage with his gore attack and gains a free action to do a trip combat maneuver. On a failed combat maneuver check, the megaloclaw is not tripped in return. This ability works only on creatures of a size equal to or smaller than the megaloclaw.

Throat-Rip (Ex)

As a full-round action, a megaloclaw can deliver a coup de grace against a helpless opponent. If the victim survives the attack, he must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 10 + damage dealt) or dies. Opponents killed in this manner cannot be raised, but Arise, Full-Life, or the like can restore the slain creature to life.
