 SPECIAL ABILITIES

Black Cloud (Su)

Three times per day, an achaierai can release a choking, toxic cloud as a free action in a 10-ft.radius. Creatures in the cloud are considered to be in darkness. The cloud is also toxic, functioning as a contact poison (see below) against all non-achaierai within the cloud. The cloud disperses after two rounds.

Black Cloud—contact; save Fort DC 16; frequency 1/round for two rounds; effect 2d6 damage plus insanity (as spell, lasts 1 hour); cure 1 save

Knowledge (Planes)

DC Result
15 The achaierai stands over 14 feet tall and is brightly colored like a parrot.
20 Achaierai do not stand and fight but instead prefer to dash in to deliver a quick bite and then flee to safety.
25 When threatened or outnumbered, an achaierai is able to release a cloud of toxic smoke that weakens some foes while driving others mad.
30 Achaierai never appear in large numbers and may turn against each other if a flock leader is shown too weak to hold the group together (such as if it is slain within one to two rounds after combat begins).
