Combat

Blindsense (Ex): An Underdark landwyrm's extraordinary powers of scent and echolocation allow it to pinpoint the location of any living creature within 60 feet.

Frightful Presence (Ex): 60-ft. radius, HD 11 or fewer, Will DC 19 negates.

Obscuring Mist (Su): Three times per day an Underdark landwyrm can exhale a cloud of obscuring mist (as the spell, caster level equals landwyrm's HD).

Wounding (Ex): An Underdark landwyrm's claws deal bleeding wounds, similar to those caused by a wounding weapon. In addition to hit point damage, a claw attack deals 1 point of Constitution damage when it hits a creature. A critical hit does not multiply the Constitution damage. Creatures immune to critical hits are immune to this Constitution damage.

Skills: An underdark landwyrm has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line. Underdark landwyrms have a +4 racial bonus on Move Silently checks. *hey have a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks when in rocky underground environments. This bonus on Hide checks increases to +8 when the landwyrm is immobile.
