Astriapis are bipedal arthropods with chitinous exoskeletons, membranous insectile wings, and large powerful mandibles. Their pigmentation runs the gamut from dark blues through bold yellows, and some astriapis selectively carve their exoskeletons to create individualistic patterns. They can also naturally produce a restorative honey. On average, astriapis stand around 6 feet tall and weigh between 120 and 150 pounds.

Racial Traits

Ability Adjustments: +2 Dex, +2 Wis, –2 Str

Hit Points: 4

Size and Type: Astriapis are Medium monstrous humanoids.

Astriapi Movement: Astriapis have a land speed of 30 feet and an extraordinary fly speed of 30 feet with average maneuverability.

Astriapi Senses: Astriapis have blindsense (scent) with a range of 30 feet and darkvision with a range of 60 feet.

Honey Production: Once per day, an astriapi can spend 10 minutes to produce a vial of magical honey. This honey functions as a mk 1 serum of healing. At 5th level (or CR 5), the honey functions as a mk 2 serum of healing, and at 9th level (or CR 9), it functions as a mk 3 serum of healing. Regardless of its level, the honey can’t be sold, and its magical properties expire after 24 hours, when it turns into mundane foodstuff.

Natural Weapons (P): Natural weapons (and natural attacks) such as acid spit, bite, claw, or slam don’t require ammunition and can’t be disarmed or sundered. In addition, a player character with this ability can attack with a special unarmed strike that deals lethal damage, doesn’t count as archaic, and threatens squares. They also gain a special version of the Weapon Specialization feat with this unarmed strike at 3rd level, allowing them to add 1–1/2 × their character level to their damage rolls for this unarmed strike (instead of just adding their character level as usual).

Scholar: Astriapis gain a +2 racial bonus to Engineering and Mysticism checks.
