Massive herbivores of tropical lands, elephants are unpredictable creatures but nevertheless are sometimes used as mounts or beasts of burden.

This entry describes an African elephant. Indian elephants are slightly smaller and weaker (Strength 28), but more readily trained (Wisdom 15). These statistics can also represent prehistoric creatures such as mammoths and mastodons.


Elephants tend to charge at threatening creatures.

Trample (Ex): Reflex half DC 25. The save DC is Strength-based.

Species Traits

Elephants have the following traits

Trample (Ex) An elephant can trample Medium or smaller creatures for 2d6+15 points of damage. Opponents who do not make attacks of opportunity against the elephant can attempt a Reflex save (DC 25) to halve the damage. The mastadon's trample deals 2d6+18 points of damage (Reflex save, DC 31, for half damage).

Scent (Ex) This ability allows the elephant to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and Track by sense of smell.

Low-Light Vision (Ex) Elephants can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. They retain the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.
