Summoned Creature: Alphatusk

Summoned Creature: AlphatuskThe most assertive of sabertusks. Though not all packs possess a leader, who led packs of sabertusks are observed to exhibit more aggression. Some have even reported alphatusks rampaging through houses miles from their own natural habitat.

As a summoned, template, creature, this creature has several changes. Anything noted with [] is what it gains from the template associated with the summoners’ alignment. Divine is always listed first, and Unholy afterwards.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Pounce (Ex)

An alphatusk can make a full attack when it makes a charge attack.

Powerful Charge (Ex)

An alphatusk, when it makes a charge attack, he also deals double damage with his gore attack and gains a free action to do a trip combat maneuver. On a failed combat maneuver check, the alphatusk is not tripped in return. This ability works only on creatures of a size equal to or smaller than the alphatusk.

Throat-Rip (Ex)

As a full-round action, an alphatusk can deliver a coup de grace against a helpless opponent. If the victim survives the attack, he must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 10 + damage dealt) or dies. Opponents killed in this manner cannot be raised, but Arise, Full-Life, or the like can restore the slain creature to life.

Divine – Sacred Aura (Su)

A divine creature emits supernatural light in a 10-foot radius around it. All those within the area of effect take 3d6 holy damage. A divine creature can suppress or resume the use of this ability as a free action.

Divine – Sacredness (Su)

Each of a divine creature’s melee attacks with a natural or manufactured weapon deal +50% more holy damage against creatures of evil alignment. All of its natural and manufactured weapons are treated as good-aligned for overcoming damage reduction.

Unholy – Profane Aura (Su)

An unholy creature emits supernatural darkness in a 10-foot radius around it. All those within the area of effect take 3d6 shadow damage. An unholy creature can suppress or resume the use of this ability as a free action.
