A large brown fowl preens in the grass, standing about eight or nine feet tall. Several others of its kind are around it, eating greens and nuts. Its long hard-scaled, three-toed legs make up a good portion of its height, the rest is feathery torso, wings, neck and head. It is almost entirely brown, from its eyes to its tail feathers; even its scaly legs and hard, sharp beak are tinted a brown.
Chocobos avoid combat, often being captured when they are fed greens. Their wings are vestigial, serving no purpose but to assist in balance and jumping. Chocobos are masters of terrain, running over anything but water and mountains.
While chocobos tend to be peaceful, they will defend themselves violently if they feel threatened, lashing out with beak and claw. Generally, a chocobo will attack with one of its claws and run for safety, but if it sustains a large amount of injury, they will use their Chcobuckle ability, then run. Again, a chocobo's first instinct in combat is to run. A brown chocobo's beak has a threat range of 19-20.
Choco Acid (Ex): Flapping its wings furiously to work the muscles around its stomach and esophagus, a brown chocobo can belch a large, viscous glob of stomach acid, dealing acid damage to the target of its ranged touch attack. This is a full attack action that provokes attacks of opportunity. This attack deals 2d8 plus half the chocobo's HD in acid damage on a successful hit. A brown chocobo is unharmed by its own choco acid. A brown chocobo can only use choco acid a number of times per day equal to its Constitution modifier.
Chocobo Jump (Ex): Chocobo's are great at jumping, using their strong legs and wings to optimal effect. Because of this, chocobos gain a racial bonus on jump checks equal to one third of their HD.
Chocobo Run (Ex): A chocobo is treated as having the Run feat. Chocobos' strong, tough legs, and gripping, scaled feet are prefect for traveling. A chocobo can travel without penalty over any solid, non-damaging surface without needing to make a Balance or Tumble check. Also, a chocobo can sprint for short periods of time. It may move at twice its base land speed for one round every five minutes. This stacks with the effect of the Run feat, allowing a chocobo to move 480 feet in a single round.
Chocobuckle (Ex): When a chocobo feels threatened for its life, it will lash out viciously in a flurry of attacks. It takes a -2 penalty on all attack rolls that round, but uses a standard attack action to attack a number of times equal to the number of attacks allowed by its base attack bonus, but all of those attack are at full attack bonus (including the -2 penalty). These attacks may use any combination of claws and beak and all deal 2d8 damage plus one and a half times the chocobo's Strength modifier. It usually uses its move action that round to run from battle after attacking.
Flightless (Ex): A chocobo cannot fly, despite its wings. They serve only to assist in balance while running and support while jumping.
Low-light vision (Ex) In shadowy or dim illumination, a chocobo can see twice as far as a normal human.
