Critical Attack (Ex)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, the blood bat can inflict more pain than normal. If they succeed at hitting with their bite attack, the damage is 2d6+3 x 1.5 for total damage.

Leech (Su)

3/day, a blood bat can leech the blood from a target within 30 feet. The target must make a Fortitude save (DC 15) or take 2d6 points of shadow damage and the blood bat is healed for that much. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 2nd level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 19).

Screech (Ex)

2/day, as a standard action, a blood bat can produce an ear-splitting screech that stuns non-bats in a 20-foot-radius burst, every 1d4 rounds. All creatures within the area must make a DC 15 Fortitude save or be staggered for 1d3 rounds. Other bats are immune to this effect. This is a sonic mind-affecting effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Shriek (Ex)

A blood bat can emit a piercing shriek every 1d4 rounds. All creatures that can hear the blood bat’s shriek (except other bats) within a 100-ft. radius must succeed on a DC 15 Will save or become shaken for 1d4+1 rounds. Successive shrieks do not stack with each other but do extend the duration of the effect. A creature that successfully saves is immune to the same blood bat’s shriek for 24 hours. The save DC is Constitution-based.
