Special Abilities


Poison (Ex) Sting or weapon—injury; save Fort 20; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d2 Dexterity damage; cure 1 save. Forty Seventh Tyrant can deliver this poison with his stinger, or can take a move action to apply it to his longspear. Its effects include numbness and slowly encroaching paralysis of limbs. For all effects and purposes it's the same poison as his daughters' one.

Royal Jelly (Su) Forty Seventh Tyrant can excrete a honey-like jelly up to ten times per day. He can apply it to a touched living creature with a standard action. He can use it on oneself as a swift action instead. Recipient of the jelly heals 5d6 points of damage and gains one of the following benefits: calm emotions (DC 20), cure disease and neutralize poison, good hope, or haste. The saving throw DC is Constitution-based.

Forty Seventh Tyrant is a sapient hornet that seeks new land to conquer with the help of his daughter—he carries numerous fertilized eggs in his haversack, awaiting to be roused with their father's pheromones and nurtured into maturity with his royal jelly. He is very polite about his wish of sending a ravenous swarm of his daughters to hunt and feed on beasts and sapient beings alike. It's sad necessity for his daughters to feast on prey large enough to provide enough sustenance for the next generations of his descendants but necessity nevertheless. It's unavoidable once a proper realm incapable of defending against the onslaught of his daughters is found. Expanding dominion is the highest imperative, all opposition is understandable folly and yet doomed to inevitable future failure.

Forty Seventh Tyrant's daughters can be represented with young giant wasps when young, and advanced giant wasps when fully matured, except they are monstrous humanoids with Intelligence score of 7, maxed Fly and Perception skills, and additional bite attack (1d6 for young, 1d8 for mature).
