The Deadly Dire Seal!

Tell me what you think guys. For some reason, my girlfriend decided she needed to summon a dire seal in my campaign. Seeing nowhere that such a thing existed, I created it myself. (:

Dire Seal

Large Animal

With a huge splash of water and a tremendous sound like a small fog horn blasting, a fifteen foot tall, ten foot long seal jumps up onto the ground. Its pure white skin glistens in the cold sun, and its eyes seem to have a strange light of curiosity to them, if not intelligence.

Dire seals are a rare offshoot of the normal seal line. Like their smaller cousins, they are found mostly in arctic environments, and can survive cold temperatures and harsh winters that would kill most other creatures. They can swim with the greatest of ease, and hold their breath for up to 8 hours at a time without surfacing. They are usually highly inquisitive about new things (i.e. adventurers) and are rarely hostile unless provoked or come upon while they have a child with them.

The swim check should be much higher. The +8 should be merely racial, + whatever they have from Str (+3) + ranks from HD.

I'd take improved inuatuitive and give it track.

Look into the MM, I think the Str should be higher. Look into what the difference in shcnaging size catigories is. I think the Str should be higher along with nat armor.

Agreed on the swim check. Should be a +8 racial bonus.
