Frosty Chiseler

The gadget spec URL could not be found
This twisted little gnome with white-blue skin and a wild, red-tinged beard snarls and prances madly about, clutching a hammer in one hand and a bloody chisel in the other. A closer look reveals its huge bushy beard is not made of hair, but of living scintillating icicles as sharp as dagger-points and frosted with blood-spray from its last kill. The beard dances as madly as he, wriggling like a nest of razored ice snakes undulating to their own sinister rhythm. One of the malingering degenerate’s eyes is significantly larger than the other, pulsing and bloodshot, its pupil lolling about like a ship in a storm.

Bristle Ice Beard (Su)

A frosty chiseler’s razor-sharp ice-tined beard sprouts and juts wildly from his face and is nearly as large as he is.The vicious icy growth poses a serious threat to anyone attacking the fey in melee. An adjacent attacker must make a DC 16 Reflex save or take 1d4 points of slashing and 1d6 points of cold damage when she lands a blow against the chiseler, as his flailing oversized beard tears at her and flash freezes her flesh. The chiseler can break off sharp shards of his beard and hurl them at distant foes.

Brittlebones Curse (Su)

Once per day, a frosty chiseler may target a foe within 30 feet and mutter “skin like ice, bones like glass, crack and snap and fractious smash!” The target must make a DC 14 Will save or be affected by a terrible curse that causes her to turn as brittle as delicate crystalline ice. If she takes more than a single move action each round she takes 1d6 points of damage and 1 point of Dexterity and 1 point of Strength damage as bits of her break off and she begins to fall to pieces. A DC 14 Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the ability damage, but must be made every round she exerts herself. In addition she takes double damage from bludgeoning and sonic attacks. The curse lasts for one day, but can be lifted by a remove curse or similar magic. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Frostwalker (Su)

Frosty chiselers take no penalties to movement on ice, no matter how slippery, and cannot be forced to make Acrobatics checks or Reflex saves to avoid falling on icy terrain. They may climb icy surfaces as if under the effect of a spider climb spell.

Frosty Grasp (Su)

A frosty chiseler’s natural attacks, as well as any weapons he wields, deal an additional 1d6 points of cold damage.
