Your party stumbles on an odd goose-shaped creature digging into a rotten log. The creature gives a startled hoot and waddles away.

Beipiaosaurs are one of the smallest of the odd therizinasaurs. This medium sized creature eats all manner of things: plants, carrion, insects, eggs, etc. Beipiaosaurs are generally peaceful.

Combat

Beipiaosaurs would much rather run than fight. But if cornered, it will lash out with its savage claws and a foul mixture of half-digested gunk.

Augmented Critical (sp): A beipiaosaurus’s claw attack threatens a critical on 19 or 20

Vomit (sp): as a standard action, a beipiaosaurus can vomit up its stomach contents. All in a 10 ft. cone must make a ref. save or take 1d6 acid damage. A separate fort. save must be taken by all within 10 ft. of the creature or be nauseated for 1d4 rounds. Both saves are Constitution based.

  • Beipiaosaurs have a +2 racial bonus on fortitude saves vs. ingested poison and disease.
  • Beipiaosaurs have a +2 racial bonus on Listen and Spot checks.
