Combat

They are gentle beings and avoid combat, but if pressed, they are quite capable of defending themselves. Asperiis attack with their hooves and bite.

True Seeing (Su): An asperii can continuously see things as they are with a range of 120 feet. This functions as the true seeing spell; it can be dispelled, but the asperii can restart it again on its next turn as a free action.

Feather Fall (Su): Four times per day, an asperii can use feather fall on itself or a creature it touches. This functions as the spell cast by an 8th-level sorcerer.

Ride the Wind (Su): Asperii are able to ride air currents of natural or magical nature. This allows an asperii to add 5 feet to its fly speed for each mile per hour of wind over 20.

Immunities (Ex): Asperii are immune to all gaze attacks.

Cold Subtype (Ex): Cold immunity, double damage from fire, except on a successful save.

Telepathy (Su): Asperiis can communicate telepathically with any creature within 100 feet that has a language.

Skills: Asperiis receive a +4 racial bonus to Listen, Search, and Spot checks.

The Asperii first appeared in Dragon #89 (in the original "Creature Catalog" section) as the Wind Steed. It later appeared in MC3, and MC annual 4.

Air Subtype

This subtype usually is used for elementals and outsiders with a connection to the Elemental Plane Air. Air creatures always have fly speeds and usually have perfect maneuverability (see the section on Movement).

Cold Subtype

A creature with the cold subtype has immunity to cold. It has vulnerability to fire, which means it takes half again as much (+50%) damage as normal from fire, regardless of whether a saving throw is allowed, or if the save is a success or failure.
