Special Abilities

Dream Possession (Su) As a standard action, a mythic moon-beast may possess a sleeping target or a target with a Wisdom score of 0, as magic jar (DC 25 Will negates). The target may resist but takes a –5 penalty on their Will save to avoid possession. If it successfully possesses a target, it may expending one use of its mythic power as a free action to plane shift its body to the Dimension of Dreams while its spirit remains on the current plane possessing its host body. If the possession is ended, the mythic moon-beast’s soul returns to the Dimension of Dreams to reunite with its body. Protection from evil and similar effects block this form of possession; however, if the protection from evil (or equivalent effect) is not a mythic effect, the mythic moon-beast may expend one use of its mythic power as a swift action to break through the protection. Make a caster level check, using the caster level of the protection effect, against the mythic moon-beast’s spell resistance. If the check fails to overcome its spell resistance, the protective effect is dispelled and it can attempt to possess the target.

Dream Stalking (Su) A mythic moon-beast can prowl the Dimension of Dreams in search of the secrets that living, dreaming creatures hide from the world. Once per day as a standard action, a mythic moon-beast that is within the Dimension of Dreams can investigate a living creature that requires sleep and that actively dreams, as if using a vision spell (caster level CL 13th). This ability cannot be used on objects or places. By expending one use of its mythic power, the moon-beast can observe the target as if using greater scrying. By expending 2 uses of mythic power, it can use detect thoughts while scrying the target.

Mythic Spell-Like Abilities (Su) Three times per day when a mythic moon-beast uses a spell-like ability, it can expend one or more uses of its mythic power to duplicate the mythic version of that spell. It treats its mythic rank as its mythic tier for the purpose of augmenting spell-like abilities.

Tentacular Titan (Ex) A mythic moon-beast’s tentacles are considered primary natural weapons and it gains Lunge as a bonus feat. In addition, using its Lunge feat increases the reach of its tentacles by 10 feet rather than 5 feet.

The Twisting (Su) A mythic moon-beast can create a minion out of a helpless creature of the humanoid type that is physically within the Dimension of Dreams. This requires a full round action and 1 use of the moon-beast’s mythic power. The creature must make a DC 25 Will save, failure means the creature falls into a coma, remaining unconscious for 1d4 days. During this time, it can be awakened and the effects of the twisting undone by break enchantment or remove curse (DC 25 caster level check). Once the twisting is complete, the target is transformed into a denizen of Leng under the command of the moon-beast that created it. Once transformed, the twisting is irreversible save for use of a miracle or wish. A moon-beast may have multiple enslaved denizens, so long as their total Hit Dice total no more than twice its own Hit Dice; any denizens it creates that would exceed this limit become free-willed creatures. A moon-beast may free an enslaved denizen in order to enslave a new one, but once freed, a denizen cannot be enslaved again. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Wisdom Drain (Su) A creature that takes rend damage from a moon-beast must succeed at a DC 22 Will save or take 1d4 points of Wisdom drain. A moon-beast heals 5 points of damage for each point of Wisdom it drains in this manner. If it drains a victim to 0 Wisdom, the moon-beast gains the effects of a heal spell. The save DC is Constitution-based.
