Radioactive Burst (Su)

As a move action, a glimmer tardigrade projects an aura of radiation that affects all creatures within 30 feet. Glimmer tardigrades are immune to this effect, but all other creatures must make a DC 21 Fortitude save to resist the effects. A creature that makes this save is immune to the effect for 24 hours. A creature that fails suffers 2d4 Constitution drain and must make another DC 21 save or take 1d6 Strength damage as well. If a character has Strength damage equal to his current Strength score, any remaining damage dealt by this secondary effect is instead Constitution damage. The tardigrade can project this aura up to three times per day.


Environment any blighted land
Organization solitary, pair, or pack (2-6)

You can sense the malevolence radiating from this creature. Its hide oozes foul ichor as it stalks toward the scent of prey.
