Leonals like their battles as straightforward as can be. They begin with a roar to put their foes off balance, then follow up with a frenzy of claw and bite attacks. They closely coordinate with others in their pride, watching one another?s flanks and setting up devastating attacks.
A leonal?s natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as good-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
Roar (Su): A leonal can roar up to three times per day. Each roar releases a blast in a 60-foot cone that duplicates the effects of a holy word spell and deals an extra 2d6 points of sonic damage (Fortitude DC 20 negates). The save DC is Charisma-based.
Pounce (Ex): If a leonal charges a foe, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a leonal must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.
Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +20 melee, damage 1d6+8.
Spell-Like Abilities: At will?detect thoughts, fireball (DC 15), hold monster (DC 17), polymorph, wall of force; 3/day?cure critical wounds (DC 16), neutralize poison, remove disease; 1/day?heal (DC 18). Caster level 10th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.
Lay on Hands (Su): As the paladin class feature, except that each day, a leonal can heal an amount of damage equal to its full normal hit points.
Protective Aura (Su): Against attacks made or effects created by evil creatures, this ability provides a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saving throws to anyone within 20 feet of the leonal. Otherwise, it functions as a magic circle against evil effect and a lesser globe of invulnerability, both with a radius of 20 feet (caster level equals leonal?s HD). (The defensive benefits from the circle are not included in a leonal?s statistics block.)
Speak with Animals (Su): This ability works like speak with animals (caster level 8th) but is a free action and does not require sound.
Skills: Leonals have a +4 racial bonus on Balance, Hide, and Move Silently checks.
