Toxyderm

Species Traits

Regardless of the type of waste that spawned them, toxyderms share the following traits.

Elemental: As elementals, toxyderms are immune to poison, sleep, paralysis, and stunning. They are not subject to critical hits, flanking, or the effects of massive damage. They cannot be raised from the dead.

Breath Weapon (Ex): A toxyderm has a cone-shaped breath weapon that it can use as an attack action once every 1d4 rounds. The exact length and type of the breath weapon varies depending on the toxyderm.

Engulf (Ex): A toxyderm can engulf creatures at least one size smaller than itself as an attack action. It cannot make a slam attack during a round in which it engulfs. The toxyderm merely has to move over the opponents, affecting as many as it can cover. Opponents can make attacks of opportunity against the engulfing toxyderm, but if they do so they are not entitled to a saving throw. Those who do not attempt attacks of opportunity must succeed at a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 toxyderm’s Hit Dice + toxyderm’s Dexterity modifier) or be engulfed; on a success, they are pushed back or aside (opponent’s choice) as the toxyderm moves forward. Engulfed creatures are automatically considered grappled and take damage from the toxyderm’s slam attack every subsequent round (no attack roll required).

Darkvision (Ex): A toxyderm can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and the toxyderm can function with no light at all.

Chemical Toxyderm

Acid (Ex): The chemical toxyderm is made of an acid that dissolves organic material. With each successful slam, the toxyderm deals 2d6 points of acid damage in addition to normal slam damage. A creature continues to take acid damage each round until the acid is rinsed off with water.

Breath Weapon (Ex): The chemical toxyderm breathes a 50-foot cone of acid that deals 15d6 points of damage, or half damage if a Reflex save succeeds (DC 10 + 1/2 toxyderm’s Hit Dice + toxyderm’s Constitution modifier). Unlike the garbage toxyderm, the chemical toxyderm takes no damage from its own breath weapon.

Garbage Toxyderm

Disease (Ex): Hantavirus—slam. Fortitude save (DC 14) negates; incubation period 1 day; initial damage 1d2 Str; secondary damage 1d2 Str (temporary or permanent) and 1d2 Con (temporary or permanent).

Breath Weapon (Ex): The garbage toxyderm can expel some of its mass in a 50-foot cone. This deals 10d6 points of bludgeoning damage, or half damage if a Reflex save succeeds (DC 10 + 1/2 toxyderm’s Hit Dice + toxyderm’s Constitution modifier). Each time the toxyderm uses its breath weapon, it takes 20 points of damage. Furthermore, any creature that takes damage from the cone must succeed at a Fortitude save (DC 14) or contract a disease (see above).

Nuclear Toxyderm

Radiation (Ex): The area within a quarter-mile of a nuclear toxyderm is considered highly irradiated (see Radiation Sickness, below), so characters receive a low exposure to radiation if they remain in the area for less than a minute and a moderate exposure if they stay longer. If the nuclear toxyderm hits a creature with a slam attack, that creature receives a severe exposure to radiation.

Breath Weapon (Ex): The nuclear toxyderm’s breath weapon is a 100-foot cone of white-hot nuclear slag and fullspectrum radiation. It deals 20d6 points of damage to all in its path, or half damage if a Reflex save succeeds (DC 10 + 1/2 toxyderm’s Hit Dice + toxyderm’s Constitution modifier). Any creature that takes damage from the cone also suffers a high exposure to radiation (see the Radiation Sickness).

Chain Reaction (Su): If the nuclear toxyderm is reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, it explodes in a blinding flash of light that deals 400 points of damage to everything (creatures and objects alike) within 400 feet and 100 points of damage to everything within a mile; a successful Reflex save halves the damage (DC 10 + 1/2 toxyderm’s Hit Dice + toxyderm’s Dexterity modifier). This explosion generally results in a milehigh mushroom cloud and a highly radioactive crater a quarter-mile across.
