    White Buffalo
    A woman clad in white furs stands ahead. She seems strangely out of place but calls out in greeting. In another moment a white buffalo stands there. In every way a buffalo but for its fur.

    Special Attacks
    Grant a Full Life
    If a White Buffalo feels a creature is evil, corrupt, or otherwise unable to properly allow peace where it would be, the White Buffalo may force it to experience the whole of its life at once. Any creature targeted with this ability must make a DC 28 will save to resist the sensation. If the target fails its will save it must make a Fort save DC 28 or die, experiencing the full sensation of a long life lived. This will leave only bones and dirt (if either is appropriate for the creature type). These are not sufficient remains to raise the creatures from unless using Limited Wish, Wish, Miracle, or True Resurrection. If it succeeds on the Fort save, it still takes 3d6 damage. This is a mind-affecting effect. Using Grant a Full Life is standard action. A creature cannot be targeted by this ability again for 24 hours.

    Special Ability
    Change Shape (Su)

    A White Buffalo can assume any animal or humanoid form 3/day as if using polymorph.
    Sanctuary (Sp) The White Buffalo is continually under a Sanctuary effect (DC 20)
    Protective Aura (Su) Against attacks made or effects created by evil creatures, this ability provides a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saving throws to anyone within 20 feet of the White Buffalo. Otherwise, it functions as a magic circle against evil effect and a lesser globe of invulnerability, both with a radius of 20 feet (caster level equals White Buffalo's HD). The defensive benefits from the circle are not included in an White Buffalo's statistics block.
    Truespeech (Su) The White Buffalo can speak with any creature that has a language, as though using a tongues spell (caster level equal to White Buffalo's Hit Dice). This ability is always active.

    Treasure Standard (Hide or Pipe)
    The White Buffalo is a distinctly different creature than the buffalo. It has appeared as long as 12 feet and as tall as 7 feet at the shoulder. No one has ever seen more than one White Buffalo. Truly there are many who believe there is only one, holding the White Buffalo to be a being of near-deity importance.
    Myths abound about the White Buffalo’s import as a symbol of peace. Its coming is said to bring an era of endless peace. However, seeing as it has been seen before that cannot be entirely true. Certainly, it is a benevolent creature with many good intentions. Maybe he does only appear at auspicious times.
    Many myths tell how how a woman garbed in white offered a pipe to those who would accept her hospitably.

    Spoiler: White Buffalo's Pipe
    Show

    The White Buffalo's Pipe is an ancient symbol of peace. By smoking this pipe, the user gains the benefits of the White Buffalo's Protective Aura for 1 day.
