Monster Manual III
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a rage drake must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking attacks of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can use both its rake and worry attacks against the held foe.
Pounce (Ex): If a rage drake charges, it can make a full attack, including its two rake attacks and one worry attack if it grabs its foe.
Rage (Ex): Four times per day, a rage drake can enter a state of fierce rage that lasts 11 rounds. The following changes are in effect as long as he rages: AC 18 (touch 10, flat-footed 15); hp increase by 28; Atk +18 melee (1d8+15/19-20, claw); Full Atk +18 melee (1d8+15/19-20, 2 claws) and +13 melee (2d6+10, bite); SV Fort +17, Will +12; Str 31, Con 27; Jump +33. Unlike a barbarian, however, a rage drake is not fatigued after raging. A rage drake can end its rage early, though it seldom does so even when all its foes are apparently defeated.
Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +16 melee, damage 1d8+13, including adjustment for using Power Attack feat.
Worry (Ex): Whenever a rage drake grabs a foe at least one size category smaller than itself in its mouth, it instinctively shakes the foe, stunning and disorienting its victim. Anyone grabbed a rage drake must succeed on a DC 25 Fortitude saving throw or be stunned for 1 round. A rage drake can only use this ability in the first round after it grabs a foe. The save DC is Strength-based.
Skills: Rage drakes have a +4 racial bonus on Spot checks and Listen checks.
