Special Abilities

Fearful Strength (Ex) The iron grip and bloodthirsty ferocity of a mythic annis hag belie her lanky build. Whenever a mythic annis hag confirms a critical hit with a natural weapon or successfully grapples or rends a target, she can make an Intimidate check to demoralize that creature as a swift action. If she expends one use of her mythic power, she can demoralize the target as a free action and if the Intimidate check succeeds the target is frightened instead of shaken.

Grisly Grappler (Ex) When a mythic annis hag succeeds on a combat maneuver check to grapple a target, she can deal her rend damage to that creature as a swift action even if she hits with only one claw. In addition, if she bites a target she has grappled she gains a +4 bonus on her attack roll and deals 1d6 points of bleed damage on a successful hit, or 1d3 points of Constitution bleed on a critical hit.

Irongrip (Ex) When a mythic annis hag successfully grapples a creature, she can maintain her grapple in subsequent rounds as a move action. Alternatively, she may spend one use of her mythic power to maintain a grapple as a swift action; if this check succeeds, she gains a +4 bonus on attack rolls or combat maneuver checks she makes against her grappled target until the end of her turn.

Steelskin (Ex) The skin of a mythic annis hag is as hard as enchanted steel, and blades that strike her become notched and dull. Any weapon striking her takes 3d6 points of damage, reduced by the hardness of the weapon. Weapons that take damage in excess of their hardness gain the broken quality. The penalties for the broken condition are applied before resolving the attack against the hag; if the attack roll penalty from the broken condition would cause the attack to miss her AC, the attack deals no damage. A weapon that is destroyed by this damage likewise deals no damage. Piercing or slashing weapons lose 1 point of hardness each time they hit the hag (DC 17 Fortitude negates). Lost hardness can be repaired by make whole, but mending has no effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.
