Monster: Yrthak

Monster: Yrthak

I've always liked the yrthaks. They are flying, blind reptiles that navigate via sonar and can launch explosive sonic rays. A good alternative to the wyvern.

Sonic Lance (14): Once per 5 seconds, a yrthak can focus sonic enery in a ray. This is a ranged attack with Acc 3 and Range 10/100 that costs 1 FP. The ray deals 4d burning non-incendiary damage. The attack produces an explosion at the point of impact (on a miss, check for scatter; see p. B414). The target takes damage normally; anything nearby receives “collateral damage” equal to basic damage divided by (3 x distance in yards from the blast). If the attack hits the ground, a large rock, a stone wall, or the like, it creates an explosion of shattered stone. Everyone within 5 yards is attacked with effective skill 15, modified by range penalties from the point of impact; see Fragmentation Damage (p. B414). The fragments deal 1d large piercing damage.
