Animal bat

The bat familiar, or "night hunter", is a magical creature capable of special attacks that can terrify the most stalwart of enemies. These winged, nocturnal rodents are quick, stealthy and very good at finding that which is hidden. They also seem to paralyze some with fear.

Special abilities Edit

All bat familiars are immune to mind-affecting spells. They also have damage reduction and spell resistance dependent on the master's level. Furthermore, a bat familiar can make use of fear gaze and fear howl attacks. In addition, the bat's natural weapon (its bite) eventually gains an enhancement bonus, improving its attacks and allowing it to better pierce the damage reduction of enemies. At master level 35, the base damage of the bat's attack improves from d2 to d4, and at 40 it becomes d6. At level 20, the sonic damage from the bite increases from 2 to 5.
