    Hivespawn Hatchling

    This insectoid creature resembles a vaguely-humanoid scorpion without a stinger. It has scythe-like blades instead of pincers and a row of spines along its back.

    Receptive (Ex) A hivespawn doesn't speak or understand any language, but creatures with telepathy can use that special quality to communicate with hivespawn as if they had a language.

    Scythe-Like Claws (Ex) A hivespawn's scythe-shaped claws deal base and critical damage as if they were scythes designed for a creature one size smaller than the hivespawn, including that weapon's x4 critical multiplier.

    Spines (Ex) A hivespawn can loose a number of dart-like spines indicated in its ranged attack from its body as a standard action with a toss of its head or a lash of its tail. Make an attack roll for each spine—all targets must be within 30 feet of each other. The spines have a range increment of 120 ft. The creature can launch only 24 spines in any 24-hour period.
