    The dairymaids of Elysium appear as bronzed human-like creatures with long feathery wings, wearing a traditional milkmaid uniform. They are about 5˝ feet tall and weigh 150 lbs.

    The United Defense of Dairymaids in Elysium, Regional Society is a union of angelic dairymaids that was created by a sisterhood of angels who retired from the rigors of the Blood War to the farmlands of Amonia near the river Oceanus in order to create an agricultural community for the betterment of all the local inhabitants. Their numbers have been growing in recent years due to the increased popularity of their magical butters.

    When the Butter Churns of Io became available, the sisters petitioned the Powers of Olympus to let them guard the minor artifacts. These magical devices are used to make the magical butters that the sisters sell on the various planes.

    While the angels are mostly pastoral farmers, they have been known to ride their mounts (celestial war bulls) into battle. The celestial war bulls are male celestial cattle and have 2 more hit dice than holy cows. They are specifically bred for riding, require 6 weeks of training, and can wear special saddles. Dairymaids eschew wearing armor, preferring to ride into battle in their more comfortable milkmaid uniforms.

    The dairymaids speak Abyssal, Celestial, Common, Draconic, Giant, Infernal, and Sylvan, though they can speak with almost any creature because of their tongues ability.


    There is nothing more fierce (nor more comical) than an angelic dairymaid riding her celestial war bull into battle while brandishing a fierce bull leader against her enemies. She can indeed lead you around by your nose! See bull leader stats below.

    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 angel. 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 angel's HD). (The defensive benefits from the circle are not included in an angel's statistics block.)

    Spell-like Abilities: At will—aid, calm animal, animal messenger, bear’s endurance, bull’s strength, 7/day—cure light wounds; 1/day—flame strike. Caster level 10. The saves are Charisma-based.

    Tongues (Su): All angels can speak with any creature that has a language, as though using a tongues spell (caster level equal to angel's Hit Dice). This ability is always active.

    Skills: Angelic dairymaids have a natural bonus of +10 to handle animals that are bovines and cow-like creatures including dire cattle, gorgons, oxen, hell bovines from the Diablo web enhancement, stench kows, etc.)

    A successful Knowledge (The Planes) or Knowledge (Religion) check reveals the following information. A successful bardic knowledge check reveals the information marked with an *.

    20|This creature is a Dairymaid, reveals type and all subtypes

    25*|They raise holy cows and make the magical butter that is sold to fund the Blood War.

    30|They are fierce warriors who sometimes ride celestial war bulls into battle. This reveals all special attacks and special abilities.

    35*| Dairymaids are the keepers of magical butter churns. [/TABLE]

    Now for the cows that the dairymaids raise and ride into battle...

    Skills: Listen +7, Spot +5
    Feats: Alertness, Endurance
    Environment: Amoria (Blessed Fields of Elysium)
    Organization: Solitary or herd (6-30)
    Challenge Rating: 3
    Alignment: Any Good
    Advancement: 6-7 HD (Large)
    Level Adjustment: +2

    These herd animals can be aggressive when protecting young and during the mating season, but they generally prefer flight to fighting. A holy cow stands more than 6 feet tall at the shoulder and is 9 to 12 feet long. It weighs 1,800 to 2,400 pounds. Holy cows are celestial cows that are tended by the dairymaids of Amoria for their abundant milk production. Holy cows are more regal and more beautiful than their earthly counterparts. They frequently have a metallic sheen to their glossy hides. The milk from holy cows is particularly tasty and is often churned into magical butter by the aforementioned dairymaids.

    The celestial bulls that the dairymaids ride have the same stats as the holy cows, but they have 2 additional hit dice.

    Smite Evil (Su): Once per day, a holy cow can make a normal melee attack to deal extra damage equal to its hit dice against an evil foe.

    Stampede (Ex): A frightened herd of holy cows flees as a group in a random direction (but always away from the perceived source of danger). They literally run over anything of Large size or smaller that gets in their way, dealing 1d12 points of damage for each five cows in the herd (Reflex DC 18 half). The save DC is Strength-based.

    New Weapon: Bull Leader
    A bull leader is a pole about 6 feet long with a spring clip on the end to snare the bull's nose ring enables the handler to keep the bull moving forward without any risk that the bull can come too close. With a bull leader, you get a +2 bonus on opposed attack rolls made to disarm an opponent (including the roll to avoid being disarmed if such an attempt fails). The bull leader uses the same stats as a ranseur. It is a two-handed, exotic, reach weapon.

    New Magic Item: (Minor Artifact)

    Io’s Butter Churns
    These three-feet wide, barrel-shaped, wooden butter churns were given to the Dairymaids after the churns were used to humiliated Io for her affair with Zeus. Despite their ominous beginnings, the churns allows the dairymaids to create their wonderful magical butters. Each butter churn can create a single magical butter at the rate of 100 lbs. per day. Each butter is imbued with magical properties based upon the spells used and other ingredients.

    Strong transmutation, CL 20 Weight 25 lbs (when empty); 125 lbs. when full of butter.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.
