Augment Critical: Armaldo’s claws have a critical threat range of 19-20 and deal x3 damage on a critical hit. Their threat range increases to 17-20 at 12 hit dice.
Damage Reduction (Ex): Armaldo has Damage Reduction equal to half its hit dice.
Harden (Ex): If Armaldo takes a full defense action, its natural armor bonus improves by 4 points for three rounds. Multiple full defenses do not stack.
Metal Claw (Ex): As a Swift action, Armaldo may sharpen its claws, making them even more painful. The size category improves by another category and its Constitution modifier is added as extra damage. This lasts for one full round, and in this case means it deals 2d6+14 damage.
Fury Cutter (Ex): Armaldo may make a sudden burst of speed, slashing away with full force. This is a full round action, and grants two additional claw attacks (for a total of 4), though all are at a -2 penalty. At 16 hit dice, Armaldo gains a total of four additional claw attacks when using Fury Cutter.
Predatory (Ex): Armaldo remember their ancient prey who seem to have never evolved, being creations, and as such they gain a +8 racial bonus to track Vermin, as well as a +2 bonus to hit and damage them.
An Armaldo gains further powers as it advances, and receives the following attacks:
Crush Claw (Ex): At 18 HD, as a Grapple attack, Armaldo may make 2 claws attacks, each dealing +6d6 slashing damage.
Venom (Ex): An Armaldo with 18 or more hit dice may secrete a venom onto its claws as a Swift action. This poison deals 1d8 Strength damage for both primary and secondary damage. It lasts for one round (or until each claw strikes once, whichever is sooner).
