Frost folk are disciplined fighters with a keen sense of tactics. They enjoy bloody slaughter and often set ambushes in deep snow, where axe fighters hide beneath the powder and archers can fire their bows at opponents whose movement is hindered.
Ice Blast (Su): Frost folk can produce a 20-foot cone of icy mist from their left eye. This deals 2d6 points of cold damage to all creatures within the area (Reflex save DC 13 half). The save DC is Constitution-based. Once a frost folk uses his ice blast, he must wait 1d4 rounds before he can use this ability again.
Snowsight (Ex): All frost folk have innate snowsight, as the spell. No snowstorm can obscure their vision.
Skills: *All frost folk gain a +8 racial bonus on Hide checks in snow and ice terrain.
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.
