A spiritspeaker prefers to lead other frost giants into battle and support his allies with his spells, as opposed to engaging foes on his own. He uses spells such as rage, prayer, and invisibility purge to help his allies fight better, and looks for opportunities to target the tribe's enemies with empowered ice storms or fear spells.
Rock Throwing (Ex): The range increment is 120 feet for a frost giant's thrown rocks.
Spell-Like Abilities: At will - detect magic, door (DC 15), rage; 3/day - blindness/deafness (DC 16), cure serious wounds, for (DC 17), empowered ice storm; 1/day - dispel magic, invisibility purge, prayer, wall of stone. Caster level 14th.
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.
