Re: Call to Brew! [Crossroads]
First off, SuperDave...that's amazing. I really like it. I might think of it as CR 3...but I can see why either might make sense. I also feel like it might be immune to fire damage, which at that level, might be the difference between cr 3 and 4 (considering most area of effect stuff is lightning or fire).
Truly terrifying. I could have nightmares about those.
What at first seems like the back of some small whale is half surfaced at the edge of the water before flying out wildly, the massive head of this beast, hurtling toward the dock.

SQ Hold Breath
A Tizheruk can attempt to capsize a boat or ship of its size or smaller by ramming it as a charge attack and making a combat maneuver check. The DC of this check is 25 or the result of the boat captain's Profession (sailor) check, whichever is higher.
A Tizheruk can make an acrobatics check to jump from the water. If it does so, it jumps double the distance listed in the acrobatics skill entry, and is always regarded as having a running start. It is also considered charging for the purpose of performing a bull rush.
Environment Arctic Oceans
Tales of Tizheruk exist frequently in icy coastal areas. They are well known for their massive heads, making up nearly half their body length. They have only insubstantial flippers on the sides of their bodies, but they have a complete whale's tail. It's mouth, which hangs low beneath the bulk of it's head, is full of infrequently placed outcroppings of teeth.
The whole thing faintly resembles a shrunk and stretched out sperm whale. Typical Tizheruk are 20 feet in length and weigh 1,500 pounds.
They are known for knocking sailors off of docks and ships by jumping into the air.
