Special Abilities

Disease (Su) Ghoul Fever: Bite—injury; save Fort DC 14; onset 1 day; frequency 1/day; effect 1d3 Con and 1d3 Dex damage; cure 2 consecutive saves. The save DC is Charisma-based and includes a +2 racial bonus. A mythic carrionstorm that expends one use of its mythic power as a standard action forces all creature that are exposed to its disease until the start of its next turn to roll twice on their saving throw and take the lowest result.

Pallid Bond (Ex) A carrionstorm does not attack undead or creatures displaying the holy symbol of the goddess of the undead unless magically controlled, and deal only half damage to such creatures if compelled to attack.

Shield of Wings (Ex) When occupying the same space as an ally, a mythic carrionstorm grants that ally concealment. A mythic carrionstorm may expend one use of mythic power as an immediate action to take all damage dealt to a single ally within the swarm’s space.

Vulnerable to Channeled Energy (Ex) A carrionstorm takes 150% as much damage as normal from channeled positive energy.
