SQ blend with stone, earth glide


Blend with Stone (Su)

A lythic can use its Stealth skill even when being observed. As long as it's within 10 feet of some sort of stone, a lythic can hide itself from view in the open without anything to actually hide behind.

Earth Glide (Su)

A lythic can glide through stone, dirt or almost any other sort of earth except metal as easily as a fish swims through water. Its burrowing leaves behind no tunnel or hole, nor does it create any ripple or other signs of its presence. A move earth spell cast on an area containing a burrowing lythic flings the lythic back 30 feet, stunning the creature for 1 round unless it succeeds on a DC 15 Fortitude save.

Fury of the Earth (Su)

Anytime a lythic suffers more than 50% of its normal hit points in damage in a single encounter, it flies into a berserker-like rage. This grants the lythic a bonus to its damage rolls equal to one-half its Hit Dice for the remainder of the encounter. It cannot end this fury voluntarily but continues until all opponents are defeated or have fled.
