Special Abilities

Cardiac Accelerator (Ex): The accelerator which has been installed in the creatures heart can be activated as a free action, and has two functions – first it can increase the creatures speed by 20 ft. per round, for up to 1 minute, at which time it shuts down and cannot be used until the creature rests for 10 minutes (as if gaining back stamina). The second function is that it can be activated and increase the creatures Reflex save by +1. This can be activated at any time as a free action.

Grab (Ex): If both claw attacks succeed, the creature is allowed to make a grapple attack (KAC +4). If it succeeds, the target is grappled, and on the next round the creature is allowed to use its rake attack.

Keen sense of smell (Ex): The creature gains a racial bonus of +10 (smell) to perception.

Natural weapon sheathing (Chromium) (Ex): This cybernetic enhancement gives the creature an equipment bonus of +2 to hit and +2 damage.

Personal upgrade Mk 2 (Su): The creature has been implanted with a personal upgrade, giving it a bonus of +4 to its dexterity. This translates into a +2 equipment bonus to both its initiative check, reflex save, EAC and KAC.

Pounce (Ex): As a full round action, the creature can make a charge attack, and if it succeeds, then it automatically gets a rake attack as well.

Rake (Ex): On the next turn after a successful grapple attack, or during a successful pounce attack, the creature is allowed to make an additional 2 claw attacks.

Speed Suspension (Ex): The creature gains an equipment bonus of +20 to their movement speed.

Swallow whole (Ex): The creature is able to potentially swallow whole any creature it bites which is at least one category size smaller. See page 156-157 of the Alien Archive for more information.

 

Although smaller than a Tyrannosaurus, the Allosaurus is considered to be an Apex predator. It is very fast, highly agile, with an elongated neck and a long tail. A pair of frills runs along the back of the dinosaur’s neck, and it has angled bone protrusions above the eyes. The mouth is filled with serrated teeth, making it easier to rip prey apart.. On average the creature is around 30 feet in length, and typically weighs in excess of 10,000 pounds.

The cybernetically enhanced version has had its natural weapons replaced with steel sheathing, as well as the musculature in its legs, making it faster. A chip has been implanted in its brain, making it docile towards its handlers and increases its natural intelligence. Finally it has had its nervous system dramatically increased, giving it even faster reflexes.

This particular version of the creature has a different series of augmentations, and was specifically designed to be most useful in close quarter combat, or CQC.
