Monster: Achaierai

Monster: Achaierai

I have never used this D&D monster myself, and have never heard about anyone using it. But anyway, this sadistic extraplanar four-legged flightless bird was features in Monster Manual, and its only special ability is the black cloud - a hallucinogenic caustic area attack. There aren't any variations of this creature.

Black Cloud (HT-1/HT): Up to three times per day an achaierai can release a choking, toxic black cloud. It spreads in a 2-yard radius area around the achaierai, lasts 10 seconds, and drifts with the wind. The cloud imposes a -3 penalty on all vision-based rolls within the area, deals 1d toxic damage every second to all creatures that inhale the cloud (can be resisted with an HT-1 roll). Additionally, every creature that inhales the cloud, begins to hallucinate for 1 minute per point of margin of failure of his resistance roll (resisted with HT).
