Level Adjustment:

A rast has anywhere from ten to fifteen claws, though it can only use four at once.

A rast has a body about the size of a large dog’s, with a head almost as large as the body. It weighs about 200 pounds.


Rasts paralyze as many of their foes as possible, then attack any that are still moving. A rast can claw or bite, but cannot do both during the same round.

Paralyzing Gaze (Su)

Paralysis for 1d6 rounds, 30 feet, Fortitude DC 13 negates. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Improved Grab (Ex)

To use this ability, a rast must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

Blood Drain (Ex)

A rast drains blood from a grabbed opponent, dealing 1 point of Constitution damage each round it maintains the hold.

Flight (Su)

A rast can cease or resume flight as a free action. A rast that loses this ability falls and can perform only a single action (either a move action or an attack action) each round.
