    Default A Sonic-Feline Monster for a Lvl 3 Party?

    Hey guys. Last session my extremely bad handwriting led some of my level 3 Pathfinder party to mistake the word "shortcut" for "shout-cat", and a new table joke was born. A shout-cat is hardly that ridiculous compared to D&D magical beasts, so I figure why not throw it in next time the adventure needs one?

    I haven't been able to find an exact analogue (i.e., a party-appropriate monster, preferably feline in nature, that uses some or many sonic attacks). I was looking into the refluffing/restatting existing monster route, and wasn't sure if you guys had any good suggestions for a base monster to use for this. Currently I was looking at downgrading and refluffing a Chimera (CR 7), giving it a sonic breath weapon rather than any of the listed options.

    It's not sonic damage per se, but Krenshars are catlike and screech very loudly.

    Second, the whole "blue text" thing is not a forum rule or even a recommended procedure. If someone wants to do it in their own posts, fine, but everyone should stop telling people that they "need to" or "should have" posted in blue just because they're being sarcastic/ironic/whatever.

    Howlers are sorta like Pocupine-demon-cats. So there's that.

    A hell-hound is CR 3, refluff it as a cat and make it sonic-based instead?

    It's too high of CR, but you could adapt and tone down a destrachan if you like.

    Anyone knows blue is for sarcas'ing in "Take 10 SAN damage from Dark Orchid" Use of gray may indicate nitpicking Green is sincerity

    Half-Sapphire Dragon gives a creature a sonic breath weapon 1/day. Slap that sucker on a Leopard Housecat and don't tell the party what it is.

    EDIT: Noticed that they're level 3.

    Savage species has the mighty roar feat, which lets an animal / magical beast unleash a roar which scares foes 1/day.

    Do you mind me stealing this concept for a monster in my world? It sounds so funny, and I think it would fit. Gotta write something appropriate up, but it would be awesome.

    Slap Bard class levels on anything.

He may well be running around with flat out total immunity to harm, he does not walk outside without an entire bevy of defensive magics around him and enough magic items to buy himself a nation.

    I think I'm going with this, although half-dragon housecats are such a good idea that I am not sure yet...

    @Alaris: as I said, my players came up with "shoutcat" based entirely on my mangling of "shortcut" so I don't really have any claim to it, do what you want
