Racial Qualities 

  • +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, -2 Constitution: Quetzl are much more flexible than other races, but due to their appearance and their serpent nature they don’t seem to make a lot of friends amongst the humanoids. (0 RP)
  • Medium: Quetzl are considered medium creatures. (0 RP)
  • Outsider: Quetzl are considered to be outsiders (air). Thus have the darkvision 60 ft trait. (3 RP)
  • Speed: Quetzl can slither at 30 ft. per round.  (0 RP)
  • Breeze-Kissed: Quetzl are surrounded by swirling winds, gaining a +2 racial bonus to AC against nonmagical ranged attacks. They can calm or renew these winds as a swift action. Once per day, quetzl can channel this wind into a single gust, making a bull rush or trip combat maneuver attempt against one creature within 30 feet. Doing so exhaust the user’s breeze-kissed ability for 24 hours. This is a supernatural ability. (4 RP)

  • Limbless: Quetzl have no legs, and therefore cannot be tripped. (-2 RP)
  • Bite: All Quetzl have long, serpentine fangs they can unfold from the roof of their mouth to make a bite attack at an enemy. This is a primary natural attack that deals 1d4 points of damage plus its strength. A Quetzl may use this attack in addition to other attacks during a full attack. (1 RP)

This is a mind-affecting fear effect. A target that successfully saves cannot be affected by the user’s frightful gaze for 24 hours. Preplaces Breeze-kissed and Prehensile Tail.
  • Natural Climbers: Quetzl have a climb speed of 30 feet, and may take 10 on climb checks even when distracted or threatened and have a +8 bonus to climb checks. Replaces Darkvision.
