Voretooth (CR 6)

Close cousin of the sabertusk. Similar to its relative, the voretooth hunts in packs and ravages crops around Duscae. Unlike the sabertusk, however, this predator developed a venom gland in its tail through evolution, which allows it to fell foes much larger than itself.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Pounce (Ex)

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

Powerful Charge (Ex)

A voretooth, 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 voretooth is not tripped in return. This ability works only on creatures of a size equal to or smaller than the voretooth.

Poison (Ex)

Sting — injury; save Fort DC 18; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect 1d6 non-elemental damage; cure 1 save.

Throat-Rip (Ex)

As a full-round action, a voretooth 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.
