Special Abilities

All-Around Vision (Ex): The sensory organs on all sides of a quadrone allow it to look in any direction, bestowing a +4 racial bonus on Perception checks for visual stimuli. Opponents gain no flanking bonuses when attacking a quadrone.

Coordinated Ally (Ex): Quadrones work exceptionally well with other lawful allies. When successfully aided on a skill check or attack roll by a lawful-aligned ally, or when aiding another lawfully aligned creature, they apply or gain a +3 bonus on their checks or attack rolls (instead of the normal +2 bonus). Furthermore, quadrones gain a +4 bonus on attack rolls against an opponent flanked by a lawful-aligned ally (instead of the normal +2 bonus).

Fixed Initiative (Ex): Quadrones are rigid in their action, even in the most chaotic situations. As a result, a quadrone's initiative check is always 6. When combat begins, a quadrone uses this number as its initiative — it never rolls an initiative check.

Repetitive Attack (Ex): If a quadrone makes a full-attack action against the same target on consecutive turns, it gains a +2 bonus on its attack rolls. Changing targets or performing any other action causes the quadrone to lose this bonus.

Skills: Quadrones have a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.
