The Owlbear wasn’t Xultich’s only creation.

Xultich had other successes. One of the most frightening and abominable is the Bearowl. This ferocious supernatural predator combines the upper torso of a bear with the razor sharp talons, wings and tail feathers of a giant owl. This magical abomination lives to prey on anything made of meat.

Bearowl: Init +2; Atk bite +6 melee (1d10+2) or claw +5 melee (1d6+5 ) or talon +5 melee (1d8+5); AC 19; HD 5d8; MV 20’ or fly 30′; Act 3d20; SP spell resistance, swoop attack; SV Fort +5, Ref +2, Will +9; AL C.

If the Bearowl is in flight and lands 2 successful talon attacks in one turn on the same target, the intended victim (medium size or smaller) is lifted into the air An opposed Strength check against the Bearowl’s 20 Strength (+4) allowed once per turn wherein the target may attempt to break free. However, the Bearowl will pull the target upward and its prey may suffer falling damage. Once the Bearowl drags the victim to its nest, it will rend with bite and claw before feasting.
