SPECIAL ABILITIES

Armored Mage (Ex)

Normally, armor heavier than light armor interferes with a spell-caster gestures, which can cause spells to fail if those spells have a somatic component. An elm gigas’s limited focus and specialized training, however, allows him to avoid spell failure so long as he sticks to medium armor or light armor.

Magnitude 8 (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds and must be within reach of the ground, an elm gigas can cause the ground to erupt wildly around it within a 60-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect take 15d10 points of earth damage and are inflicted with the weighted status effect for 1d8 rounds. They must make Reflex save (DC 25) to reduce the damage by half and negate the status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as an 8th level spell (Knowledge: Local DC 31).

Militant (Ex)

Elm Gigas are proficient with all simple and all martial weapons
