Critical Attack (Ex)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, the rough viper can inflict more pain than normal. If they succeed at hitting with their bite attack, the damage is 1d6+4 x 1.5 for total damage.

Leech (Su)

1/day, a rough viper can leech the blood from a target within 30 feet. The target must make a Fortitude save (DC 13) or take 2d6 points of shadow damage and the rough viper is healed for that much. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 2nd level spell (DC 19).

Poison (Ex)

Bite – injury; save Fort DC 14; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d3 Con damage; cure 1 save.
