A truly colossal reptile lumbers out from the enormous redwoods. The beast's scales are a metallic violet, and a large fin runs down its back. Its silver-haired head is framed by a pair of segmented horns, and its maw is filled with countless rows of teeth. Its long, fishlike tail easily decimates the towering trees as it rears up on its hind legs and bellows at you.
The Behemoth King is arguably the most powerful of the non-true dragons in existence, possessing levels of force equal to that of a prismatic dragon. It is revered by some as a Guardian of the forest, savagely attacking all those who disturb the balance and sanctity of the wood. The Behemoth King will aid druids of any alignment, should they travel within its domain.
The Behemoth King is 80 feet long from its horns to the end of its tail, and is 20 feet tall. It weighs 35 tonnes. It typically walks on all four legs, although it will rear up from time to time for the purpose of inspiring terror.
The Behemoth King can speak Common, Draconic and Druidic.
In combat the Behemoth King will discern which party members are focused on physical attacks and spellcasting, and respond with the opposing force (ie, will pummel wizards with physical attacks, or rain spells down upon a fighter). Should it note that this strategem doesn't prove fruitful, it will swich tactics, alternating between physical and magical attacks on one or several targets at a time.
Breath Weapon (Su): The Behemoth King has three different breath weapons at its disposal--a cone of fire, a line of lightning, and a cone of cold. Each one inflicts 30d10; the range for both the fire and cold breath weapons is 70 feet, while the line of lightning's range is 140 feet. The DC for all three is 67.
Spell-like Abilities (Su): the Behemoth King can cast the following Druidic spell-like abilities, with DC 17+ spell level, at Caster-Level 25:
- At will--bear's endurance, bull's strength, call lightning, magic fang, summon swarm, jump, chill metal, speak with animals (constant effect), endure elements (constant), lesser retoration, cure serious wounds, flaming sphere, sleet storm;
- 3 times/day--ice storm, tree stride, control winds, wall of thorns, fire storm, death ward, greater dispel magic, summon nature's ally V;
- 1 time/day--storm of vengeance, elemental swarm, whirlwind, control weather, earthquake, summon nature's ally IX
Summon Primal (Su): Once every three days, the Behemoth King may summon a primal elemental to aid it in combat. There is a 50% chance of failure. A successful summoning allows the Behemoth King to call on a primal of its choosing. The primal will assist the Behemoth King to the best of its ability for three hours, or until dismissed.
Greater Barrier (Su): Once the Behemoth King has been reduced to 1000 hp or less, it automatically creates a powerful energy shield with which it surrounds itself. The field results in the following:
- Damage Reduction 60/epic
- An additional +10 to its deflection modifier
- Damage Resistance: All damage dealt to the Behemoth King, after being subject to damage reduction, is reduced to 1/3rd
- Spell Resistance 40
