Chilblains keep opponents at a distance, relying on their breath weapon, cold aura, frozen stare, and spell-like abilities to weaken foes before engaging in melee combat.
Breath Weapon (Su): 60-ft. cone of coldfire, once per day, damage 10d6 frostburn, Reflex DC 27 half. Living creatures that fail their saves must attempt a DC 27 Fortitude save or be blinded by frostbitten skin and frozen eyes for 2d6 rounds. The DC is Constitution-based.
Cold Aura (Ex): A chilblain radiates intense cold in a 10-foot radius. Any creature within 10 feet of the chilblain takes 2d6 points of cold damage at the beginning of its turn.
Frost Touch (Ex): The chilblain's natural attacks deal an additional 2d6 points of cold damage with each successful hit.
Frozen Stare (Su): As a standard action, a chilblain can turn a creature within 30 feet to ice permanently with a look. The target must succeed on a DC 24 Fortitude save or be turned to ice (as the spell flesh to ice). The save DC is Charisma-based.
Spell-Like Abilities: At will - detect fire, frost fell slide, lesser frostburn (DC 15), frostburn (DC 18), ice storm, shivering touch (DC 17), wall of ice (DC 18); 3/day - cone of cold (DC 19), wall of coldfire (DC 19). Caster level 20th.
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.
