SQ Grave Consequences, Necrotic feedback


Oarsman of the Underworld (Su)

This Burst Mode allows Scarmiglione to guide his enemies to their deaths as he sees fit. Upon activating this ability, he may select any number of enemies within 60 feet and relocate them to any point within the affected area he chooses, so long as they are touching the ground; airborne creatures are brought to the ground, but do not take falling damage. A Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 HD + Charisma modifier) negates this effect. In addition, for a number of rounds equal to 1 + 1 round for every four HD, Scarmiglione’s black aura ability doubles in range, deals 5 points of shadow damage, deals 2d6 shadow damage whenever struck in melee, and any and all attacks Scarmiglione makes deal an additional 1d6 points of shadow damage.

Black Aura (Su)

All creatures within a 10 ft. radius of Scarmiglione take 2 points of shadow damage per round. When struck in melee, all adjacent creatures, as well as the one who struck him, take 1d6 shadow damage.

Curse (Ex)

Bite — injury; save Will DC 21; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect unable to perform Limit Breaks; cure 1 save.

Disease (Ex)

Claw — injury; save Fort DC 21; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect prevents from receiving healing; cure 1 save.

Grave Consequences (Su)

When either creating or summoning undead creatures through a spell, Scarmiglione only spends a standard action to do so, if the spell normally takes longer to cast.

Necrotic Feedback (Su)

When Scarmiglione is struck by a ranged attack, he may, as a free action, respond with a ranged touch attack upon the one who attacked him. If it hits, the target takes 2d6 shadow damage.

Poison (Ex)

Bite — injury; save Fort DC 21; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d6 non-elemental damage; cure 1 save.

Sap (Ex)

Claw — injury; save Fort DC 21; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect 2d4 non-elemental damage; cure 1 save.
