Half Damage from Piercing (Ex): Piercing weapons deal only half damage to volodnis, with a minimum of 1 point of damage.
Sustenance (Ex): Volodnis require only 2 hours of sleep per day to gain the benefits of 8 hours of sleep (although arcane spellcasters must still have 8 hours of rest to prepare spells). Volodnis only require one-quarter the food and water a human requires, as they absorb nutrients from their environment.
Skills: *Due to their coloration and ability to remain motionless, volodnis receive a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks in wooded terrain.
Volodnis are remorseless and determined opponents. They have little fear of weapon-wielding humans, as they know they are hard to incapacitate with a single blow.
