Glorious Roar (Ex)

Once every 1d6+1 rounds, an ancient rathalos roars a glorious roar that echoes within a 50-ft.-radius burst. Any creature within the area of effect are inflicted with the Stun status effect for 1d2 rounds. A successful Fortitude save (DC 33) negates this status effect.

Fire Roar (Su)

An ancient rathalos roars a fiery cone blast within 30-ft. burst. Any creature within the area of effect takes 10d6 points of fire damage and are inflicted with the Burn status effect for 1d6 rounds. A successful Reflex save (DC 33) reduces the damage by half and negates the status effect. This is a constitution based-save. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 25). Once every 1d4+2 rounds, the ancient rathalos can choose to do this ability three times in one turn.

Poison (Ex)

Claw – injury; Fortitude save DC 33; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 2d8 non-elemental damage; cure 2 consecutive saves. The save DC is Constitution-based.
