Special Abilities
Freezing Gaze (Su) As a move action, an abaasy may make an Intimidate check against any intelligent creature within the range of its darkvision to demoralize it. If successful, the target is stunned for 1 round instead of being shaken.
Iron Lash Abassay craft special iron lashes for themselves. These weapons deal 1d6 points of lethal slashing damage, can be used in melee as well as within a reach of 15 ft. without drawing attacks of opportunity. They also possess the trip special quality.

Abaasy are horrid ogre-like monsters that stalk underground tunnels in search of prey, preferably live humanoids. Their long hair, nails and teeth are made of an iron-like substance, which suggests they may be related to earth elementals. They always tie their manes in seven whip-like braids, imitating the iron-shod lashes they use as weapons. However, their most distinguishing feature is their pupil-less, pale eyes, which shine with a gloomy blue light.

Abaasy are brutal bullies, always attempting to overpower their victims via intimidation and sheer size. When forced to engage in melee combat, Abaasy prefer to use their iron lashes to punish their prey from a distance, before closing in to attack with bite and fists.

On Porphyra
Abaasy hold no allegiance to the Elemental Lords. They arrived during The Calling as did their traditional enemies the dwarves. In the aftermath of the NewGods War they have made their home in the Underdeep.
