Astral Projection and Etherealness (Su) These abilities function just like the spells of the same names (caster level 20th); a nightmare can use either at will.

Flaming Hooves (Su) A blow from a nightmare's hooves sets combustible materials alight.

Smoke (Su) During the excitement of battle, a nightmare snorts and neighs with rage. This snorting fills a 15-foot cone with a hot, sulfurous smoke that chokes and blinds opponents. Anyone in the cone must succeed on a DC 24 Fortitude save or take a -2 penalty on all attack and damage rolls until 1d6 minutes after leaving the cone. The cone lasts 1 round, and the nightmare uses it once as a free action during its turn each round. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Carrying Capacity A light load for a cauchemar is up to 612 pounds; a medium load, 613-1,224 pounds; and a heavy load, 1,225-1,840 pounds
