    This thickset gray-black raven sits quietly in the ash, hard to spot against the background, small orange eyes flicking this way and that for signs of predator or prey.

    Ashdive (Ex): Three times per day an Ashraven can spiral during a dive to shake ash off into a stream behind it as it moves. As part of a charge attack, the Ashraven can activate Ashdive, giving it an additional +2 to hit on its attack and forcing the target to make a DC 11 Reflex save or be blinded for one round.

    Ashravens as familiars:
    Ashravens can be taken as familiar by residents of the elemental plane of fire, or by particularly enterprising arcanists. Unless one can visit the plane itself, a short ritual is required to take an Ashraven familiar, requiring 25 gp of specially treated ashes and a day of summoning to complete.

    As a familiar Ashravens provide fire resistance 5.

    Looks simple and balanced. Nice.

    I picture an epic-sized flock of these creatures upon the fields of ash just as the PC's step foot into the Plane of Elemental fire.

    Nice work!

    Edit: You seem to have left the Organization section out.

    How terribly bothersome, I was looking forward to doing that section. Did you know a group of ravens is called an unkindness?

    I do now. Apparently, the term "congress" could also work. Blazing Unkindness just sounds awesome.

    Why thank you!

    I'm really looking forward to putting this project up in greater detail.
