Combat

Ka-tainted tyrannosaurus barbarians attempt to engage enemies in melee as quickly as possible, as they glory in the use of their terrible bite attack. They rage almost immediately in combat, using Rage of the Raptor if faced with many ranged attackers, or a normal barbarian rage if they fight more melee combatants.

Blood of Ka (Su): The blood of the Ka-tainted barbarian is corrupted and poisonous. Its blood acts as a contact poison (DC 13; DC 15 when it rages) that deals initial and secondary damage of 1d6 Intelligence and 1d4 Constitution. Additionally, those who deal damage to a Ka-tainted creature with non-reach handheld or natural weapons are exposed to the Ka-tainted's poisonous blood.

A Ka-tainted is immune to the effects of its own blood, but not from the blood of other Ka-tainted creatures.

Possessions: +1 chain shirt, +1 greataxe, masterwork short sword, two potions of cure light wounds, potion of bull's strength.

Augmented Subtype

A creature receives this subtype whenever something happens to change its original type. Some creatures (those with an inherited template) are born with this subtype; others acquire it when they take on an acquired template. The augmented subtype is always paired with the creature's original type. For example, a wizard's raven familiar is a magical beast (augmented animal). A creature with the augmented subtype usually has the traits of its current type, but the features of its original type. For example, a wizard's raven familiar has an animal's features and the traits of a magical beast.

This is a sample creature derived from a Template.
