洛瓦古格之嗣,索塔尼(流血成炎者)[Spawn of Rovagug, Xotani (The Firebleeder)]
如同活火山喷发一般,这个泰坦是无视一切缘由纯粹的巨大。怪物般的形态一部分像是一条巨大的可怕蜈蚣,而另一部分像是某些原始的无翼龙类,这个活天灾完全被其外部那由汹涌的黑曜岩骤变的岩浆护甲所包裹。在这个燃烧的恐惧存在向某处快速爆发的移动,两只如同昆虫镰足的巨大爪子只留下火焰和不毛之地在它的尾迹中阴燃。

特殊能力(Special Abilities)


盲视(Blindsight,Ex):索塔尼可以通过发出大多数其他生物所听不到的高频声波来“看”,这允许它确定120尺范围内的物品和生物。一道沉默术(silence)法术可以使该能力无效,但是它其他形式的视觉能力可防止它彻底目盲(blinded)。

喷吐武器(Breath Weapon,Su):70尺锥型,每隔1d4轮可用,16d10点火焰伤害,DC 43反射减半。该豁免DC基于体质。

流血成炎(Firebleed,Ex):作为生命化的火与怒的生物,索塔尼可对任何伤害它的生物进行凶残反击。任何对索塔尼造成10点以上伤害的攻击会使其伤口喷发出一道30尺锥型的岩浆。岩浆会造成1d6点火焰伤害外加该攻击所造成的每10点额外伤害1个1d6点火焰伤害。因此,一次造成了22点伤害的攻击所导致的岩浆会造成3d6点火焰伤害,而一次造成了49点伤害的攻击所导致的岩浆会造成5d6点火焰伤害。被岩浆所影响的生物可以通过一次DC 43的反射豁免使受到的伤害减半。该豁免DC基于体质。远程攻击和任何魔法攻击造成的伤害,也会使该特殊能力起效。索塔尼不能自愿流血成炎,但每轮可以这样做10次(等同于其体质调整值数)。

气势凶猛(Frightful Presence,Su):索塔尼可以通过攻击引发恐惧。被恐惧的生物必须通过一次DC 35的意志豁免,否则会战栗(shaken),而且只要他们在索塔尼60尺内就会一直保持这种状态。这是一个影响心灵的恐惧效果。该豁免DC基于魅力。

高温(Heat,Ex):索塔尼产生如此大的热量,使得它仅凭接触就会额外造成4d8点火焰伤害。以天生武器或徒手打击攻击索塔尼的生物都会受到这种伤害,但是以近战武器攻击的生物不会受到其高温造成的伤害。这种高温可以融化或碳化武器;任何攻击索塔尼的武器被允许通过一次DC 43的强韧豁免以避免被破坏(destruction)。该豁免DC基于体质。

精通攫抓(Improved Grab,Ex):为了使用该能力,索塔尼必须以它的啮咬(bite)攻击击中一名巨型或更小的对手。它之后可以以一个自由动作尝试一次不会引发借机攻击的擒抱。如果它在擒抱检定中成功,它可以维持擒抱并可在下一轮尝试活吞(swallow)敌手。

再生(Regeneration,Ex):任何形式的攻击都不能对索塔尼造成致命伤害(lethal damage)。即便索塔尼在对抗解离术(disintegrate)法术或死亡效果上豁免失败,它还会再生(regenerates)。如果索塔尼在对抗一道会立即杀死它的法术或效果中豁免失败(如上文所提到的那些),该法术或效果会换成造成等同于该生物正常生命值取满后+10(或738点生命值)的非致命伤害(nonlethal damage)。索塔尼免疫那些会造成无法愈合或流血伤口的效果,比如腐尸症(mummy rot)、一柄血光附魔的剑、或粘土魔像(clay golem)的诅咒创伤(cursed wound)能力。
仅当索塔尼受到其正常生命值取满后+10(或738点生命值)的非致命伤害(nonlethal damage),且其中所受至少一半的伤害必须是寒冷伤害,并使用祈愿术(wish)和神迹术(miracle)法术使其死亡,索塔尼才能被杀死。
如果索塔尼失去一条肢体或身体部件,其失去的部分在1d6分钟内重新长出(而其独立后的部件将如常死亡和腐烂)。索塔尼可以将断开的部件与其残肢相接,使其重新连接。

阳光失明(Sunlight Blindness,Ex):突然暴露在阳光下(比如自然阳光,不包括昼明术法术)会使索塔尼目盲(blinds)1轮。在随后的轮中,当它在阳光直射下行动时会目眩(dazzled)。

活吞(Swallow Whole,Ex):当索塔尼使用其嘴部擒抱对手时开始它的行动轮的话,它可以以一次成功的擒抱检定将对手整个活吞(swallow)。一旦在索塔尼内部的话,被淹没在索塔尼胃中岩浆池中的对手,每轮会受到2d8+7点钝击伤害外加20d6点火焰伤害。被活吞的生物可以使用一把轻型挥砍或穿刺武器,通过对胃部(AC 25)造成50点伤害砍出离开的通路。一旦生物离开,肌肉动作会关闭此洞口;其他被活吞的对手必须自己砍路出去。索塔尼的食道可以容纳2名巨型、8名大型、32名中型、128名小型、或512个超小型及更小的生物。

践踏(Trample,Ex):反射DC 47减半。该豁免DC基于力量。


描述(Description)


从格拉利昂深处及囚禁毁灭之神的监狱中爬的出一名生命化火焰与岩浆的存在,流血成炎者的索塔尼是已被知晓和恐惧的洛瓦古格之嗣(Spawn of Rovagug)中的其中一名成员。那是诞生于世界那深不可测的最底部,只有愤怒、火焰和顽石的国度中,已知的纯粹毁灭性和最炽热的火焰所组成的生物。地表世界对索塔尼来说是痛苦的,尤其是那被诅咒的太阳,所以白天它会从地表撤退。然而,到了晚上,它从深处突然出现,走在前面的是席卷而来的大火和其致命的爪子,其后是一条像焦碳一样的小径,都是烧焦的废墟和冒烟的尸体。据传闻,流血成炎者前行所融化在地下的巨大隧道系统,如蛛网般分布于伽伦德(Garund)东北部的大地上——受索塔尼暴走而被破坏的最严重的地区——直至现代,巨大的地下走廊仍然由于洛瓦古格之嗣(Spawn of Rovagug)的通过而燃烧。

如同大多数洛瓦古格毁灭之子一样,索塔尼是被赋予生命的怒火及毁灭。除了摧毁一切穿过它道路的存在以及食用其灰烬以外,它没有任何欲望或目的。一切活物、植株、及地表世界的造物都令这个活天灾深恶痛绝,最初所采取的措施仅满意于粉碎烧焦的残留物这种级别,而在发现自己被地表的开扩、温吞的风暴和弱小的狂暴天气,以及在那之后所落下的无数潮湿而无价值的东西,而持续性的挫败和激怒后。它不再区分它可怕父亲的仆从和其他所有地表上的无力事物,不管是把它的火焰看作是生命火种的祝福或诅咒,它燃烧和吞噬着一切。

在流血成炎者的暴走结束以前,人们多次尝试杀死它。凭借与生俱来的狡猾和无法遏制的亵渎之心,这个巨大的可憎之物在无数次试图利用其弱点来杀掉它的尝试中幸存了下来,包括强大的冷冻魔法,被魔法从难以置信的高度坠落,以及被浸入欧巴利洋(Obari Ocean)。然而,尽管索塔尼看起来不可战胜,但它在2104 AR被一个强大的法师联盟以无数的生命代价所摧毁, 最终在西卡塔佩什(Katapesh)的黄铜峰(Brazen Peaks)结束了它在北伽伦德(Garund)暴走。流血成炎者残存的尸体躺在被称为苍白山(Pale Mountain)的尖峰下方的火山洞口中——据说这座山峰的颜色来自这个野兽战斗时被压碎的骨头。然而,没有什么恐怖的事物会如同一名无情的洛瓦古格之嗣(Spawn of Rovagug)那般永远不会真正死去,而那些会见到索塔尼重燃火焰的搜查者,会成为世界新的残渣。



剧透 -   :
Spawn of Rovagug, Xotani (The Firebleeder)
Like a living volcanic eruption, the sheer massiveness of this titan defies all reason. Monstrously shaped in part like a gigantic, terrible centipede and in part like some primeval, wingless dragon, this living holocaust is completely armored over in plates of angry, obsidian-sharp magma. Two massive claws like insectile scythes sheer before the burning terror as is skitters forth in rapid bursts of motion, leaving only flames and barren earth smoldering in its wake.

Blindsight (Ex) Xotani can “see” by emitting highfrequency sounds, inaudible to most other creatures, that allow it to ascertain objects and creatures within 120 feet. A silence spell negates this ability, but its other forms of vision prevent it from being utterly blinded.

Breath Weapon (Su) 70-foot cone, once every 1d4 rounds, damage 16d10 fire, Reflex DC 43 half. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Firebleed (Ex) As a creature of living fire and wrath, Xotani ferociously strikes back against any creature that wounds it. Any attack that does more than 10 points of damage to Xotani causes the wound to erupt in a 30-foot cone of magma. This cone deals 1d6 points of fire damage plus an additional 1d6 points of fire damage for every 10 points of damage dealt by the attack. Thus, an attack dealing 22 points of damage results in a cone dealing 3d6 points of fire damage, while an attack dealing 49 points of damage results in a cone dealing 5d6 points of fire damage. Creatures affected by the cone may make a DC 43 Reflex save to take only half damage. The save DC is Constitution-based. Ranged attacks and any magical attacks that deal damage also cause this special ability to take effect. Xotani cannot firebleed at will, but might do so 10 times per round (an amount equal to its Constitution modifier).

Frightful Presence (Su) Xotani can inspire terror by attacking. Affected creatures must succeed on a DC 35 Will save or become shaken, remaining in that condition as long as they remain within 60 feet of Xotani. This is a mind-affecting fear effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Heat (Ex) Xotani generates so much heat that its mere touch deals additional 4d8 points of fire damage. Creatures striking Xotani with natural attacks or unarmed attacks are subject to this damage, but creatures striking with melee weapons do not take damage from its heat. This heat can melt or char weapons; any weapon that strikes Xotani is allowed a DC 43 Fortitude save to avoid destruction. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Improved Grab (Ex) To use this ability, Xotani must hit a Huge or smaller opponent with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can try to swallow the foe the following round.

Regeneration (Ex) No form of attack deals lethal damage to Xotani. Xotani regenerates even if it fails a saving throw against a disintegrate spell or a death effect. If Xotani fails its save against a spell or effect that would kill it instantly (such as those mentioned above), the spell or effect instead deals nonlethal damage equal to the creature’s full normal hit points +10 (or 738 hp). Xotani is immune to effects that produce incurable or bleeding wounds, such as mummy rot, a sword with the wounding special ability, or a clay golem’s cursed wound ability.

Xotani can be slain only by raising its nonlethal damage total to its full normal hit points +10 (or 738 hit points), at least half of which must be inflicted by cold damage, and using a wish or miracle spell to keep it dead.

If Xotani loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 1d6 minutes (the detached piece dies and decays normally). Xotani can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.

Sunlight Blindness (Ex) Abrupt exposure to sunlight (such as sunlight, but not a daylight spell) blinds Xotani for 1 round. On subsequent rounds, it is dazzled while operating in direct sunlight.

Swallow Whole (Ex) When Xotani begins its turn with a grappled opponent in its mouth, it can swallow that opponent whole with a successful grapple check. Once inside Xotani, the opponent takes 2d8+7 points of bludgeoning damage plus 20d6 points of fire damage per round from being submerged in the magma pool that is Xotani’s stomach. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 50 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 25). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out. Xotani’s gullet can hold 2 Huge, 8 Large, 32 Medium, 128 Small, or 512 Tiny or smaller creatures.

Trample (Ex) Reflex DC 47 half. The save DC is Strength-based.

Description
________________________________________
A being of living flame and magma, crawled from the depths of Golarion and the prison of the caged god of destruction, Xotani the Firebleeder is one of the unfathomable monstrosities known and feared as the Spawn of Rovagug. A creature born of rage within the unfathomable depths of the world, it is a creature of pure devastation and hottest flames knowing only wrath, fire, and the harsh stone of the realms below. The surface world is pain to Xotani, especially the cursed sun, from which it retreats by day. By night, however, it bursts from the depths, preceded by sweeping firestorms and deadly claws and followed by a trail like a burnt pyre, all charred ruins and smoking corpses. It is rumored that vast tunnel systems melted into the earth by the passage of the Firebleeder spiderweb the lands of northeastern Garund—the region most devastated by Xotani’s rampages—to modern times, immense subterranean corridors that still burn with the Spawn of Rovagug’s passage.

Like the majority of Rovagug’s ruinous children, Xotani is wrath and devastation given life. It has no desires or intentions beyond destroying all that crosses its path and consuming the ashes. All the life, growth, and creations of the surface worlds are anathema to the living holocaust, which takes some measure of primal satisfaction in crushing the charred remains of such order, yet finds itself endlessly frustrated and incensed by the openness of the surface, the tepid storms and weak rages of weather, and the endless number of wet, hollowing things that fall in its wake. It makes no distinction between the servants of its terrible parent and all the other pathetic things of the lands above, burning and devouring all, caring nothing for whether its living tinder sees its flames as blessing or damnation.

Numerous attempts were made to slay the Firebleeder before its rampage finally came to an end. Through innate cunning and unstoppable profane determination, the titanic abomination survived numerous and varied attempts to lay it low, including potent freezing magics, being magically dropped from an incredible height, and immersion in the Obari Ocean. Yet, despite its seemingly invincible form, Xotani was destroyed by an alliance of potent mages in 2104 ar, who, at the cost of untold lives, ended its rampage across northern Garund in the Brazen Peaks of western Katapesh. The remains of the Firebleeder’s corpse lie in the volcanic caverns beneath the spire known as Pale Mountain—a peak said to take its color from the crushed bones of those who died battling the beast. Yet no terror as relentless as a Spawn of Rovagug ever truly dies, and there are those who would see the flames of Xotani rekindled to scour the dross of the world anew.

理想的译法是这样的:先把原文看懂,照原文译出来,看看念不念得下去,试删掉几个不一定用得着的字,看看是否有损文义和文气。如果有损,再补回来。试把不可少的字加进去,看看是否超出原文范围,增减以后和原文再校对一次。有些地方是否译错,语气的轻重是否恰如其分,原文的弦外之音译文是找不找得到?原文的意思要消化;译文的文字要推敲。有经验的译者可能一下笔就译好了,不过还是要推敲的时候多。
