SPECIAL ABILITIES

Critical Attack (Ex)

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

Petrify (Su)

3/day, a cockatrice can focus its stony gaze upon a single target within 30 feet. The target receives Gradual Petrify status (Fortitude save DC 14 to negate). Anyone with gradual petrify must succeed at a Fortitude save per round. Once their target succeeds at two saves they recover from the status effect but if they fail three Fortitude saves, they receive the Petrify status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Tail Fling (Su)

A cockatrice can fling its tail towards a single target with a ball of earth. The cockatrice must make a ranged touch attack (+9), if it hits, the attack deals 1d6+5 points of earth damage. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 17).
