Pachycephalosaurus

Edit Page Content

A pachycephalosaurus is a normally peaceful dinosaur that grows irate and violent during mating season or when its herd is intruded upon by potential predators. The dinosaur's skull has a distinctive dome-shaped crown surrounded by numerous bony horns—this, combined with the dinosaur's powerful, compact neck, allows it to make battering-ram-like charges capable of inflicting great Damage.

Pachycephalosauruses grow to a length of 15 feet and weigh 1,400 pounds.

Special Abilities

Clobbering Charge (Ex) When a pachycephalosaurus hits a target with its slam attack at the end of a Charge, it can initiate a Bull Rush as a Free Action to move the struck target back in the same direction as the dinosaur's Charge. The pachycephalosaurus cannot move with the target of the Bull Rush. If a pachycephalosaurus scores a critical hit against a Creature with its slam attack at the end of a Charge, it also staggers the target for 1 round. If the victim succeeds at a DC 18 Fortitude save, the stagger effect is negated, but the victim still suffers the effects of the dinosaur's Bull Rush attempt. The save DC is Strength-based.
