Air Mastery (Ex)

Airborne creatures take a ?1 penalty to attack and damage rolls against a rotting wind.

Aura of Radiation (Su)

The area around a radioactive wind is constantly affected as if by an irradiate spell (CL 6th).

Rending Wind (Su)

A radioactive wind deals 1d6+5 negative energy damage to creatures in its space at the end of its turn. It also damages creatures that enter its space on their turn.

Creatures damaged by this rending wind are exposed to medium radiation and may contract radiation sickness.

Seep (Su)

A rotting wind is a gaseous creature and can slip through tiny cracks into any area that is not airtight, but it cannot pass through solid barriers.

Vulnerable to Winds (Ex)

A rotting wind takes a –4 penalty on saving throws against wind effects, and it is treated as a Tiny creature for the purpose of wind effects determined by size.


A radioactive wind is an undead creature made up of the foul air and fallout dust sloughed off by the innumerable creatures wiped out in atomic holocausts or exposed to lethal doses of cosmic radiation. A radioactive wind carries the foul stench of death upon it, drifting mindlessly across post-apocalyptic wastelands, blighting all life it comes across and leaving only famine and death in its wake.
