Ethereal Jaunt (Su)

As a move action, a shedu can move from the Ethereal Plane to the Material Plane as a free action and shift back as a move action. Otherwise, this ability is identical to the ethereal jaunt spell.

Editor's Notes

1.  The concentration for the Shedu's spell-like abilities is Concentration +12.
2.  The Shedu has 3 unused skill points.  We recommend placing them in fly, raising it to Fly +9.

GM's are encouraged to use these statistics.
