Special Abilities

Leap (Ex): As a full round action, the Chryssalid can leap up to twice its movement rate to any location, including those on top of buildings, ledges or the like.

Poison (Ex): The claws of the creature contain a powerful poison. It uses the constitution track, and requires a save every round (DC 11), and 2 consecutive saves to cure.

Vulnerability to flame (Ex): As dangerous as the creatures are, they are highly susceptible to flame. When they encounter flame, they must make a Will save (DC 16) or be forced to flee from the flame at their maximum movement rate. Note this only includes actual fire, not flame-based attacks such as lasers. Plasma will cause the same effect, however. When they are hit with flames, the creature takes an additional 1 point of damage per dice.



Newly hatched Chryssalid are slightly slower and not quite as tough as the more mature versions. They cannot implant embryos, but are still capable of dealing heavy damage in combat. They will always stay near elder Chryssalid, and will follow the lead of the creatures.
