Dire Bat

The dire bat is a fearless monster. It dwarfs even the modern giant ones with its 15-foot wingspan and 200-pound bodies. They group together but rarely in numbers more than four. Their swooping down from above often happens with the cover of night or in dark places where their echolocation permits them to see when their prey usually cannot. This often allows the dire bat a free-first-strike as a sneak attack; however, perception rolls by the victim or group (DC:14; DC:13 with nightvision; DC:11 with darkvision) should be permitted. Further, after the attack, the victim must also make the same Perception check to be allowed a reaction for flee attack as the bat flies away. Because of this sensory ability, dire bats are unaffected by magical darkness, but can be grounded and unable to fly by the effects of silence.
