Language Aurochians begin play speaking Common and Giant. Aurochians with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following languages: Abyssal, Cyclops, Dwarven, Halfling, Sylvan, Terran and Treant.

Darkvision: Aurochians can see in the dark up to 60 feet.
Skill bonus: Aurochians have a good way with their words, granting them a +2 racial bonus to Bluff skill checks.
Frenzy: Once per day, when an Aurochian takes damage, they fly into a frenzy for 1 minute, gaining a +2 racial bonus to Constitution and Strength, but a -2 penalty to AC.
Gore: Aurochians gain a natural attack in the form of their horns (1d6 damage).

Alternate Racial Traits

Powerful Charge: Whenever an Aurochian charges, it deals twice the number of damage dice with their gore attack plus 1-1/2 times its Strength bonus. This trait replaces the Skill Bonus.
Relentless: Aurochians gain a +2 bonus on combat maneuver checks made to bull rush or overrun an opponent. This trait replaces Natural Attack.
Stability: Aurochians receive a +4 racial bonus to their CMD when resisting bull rush or trip attempts while standing on the ground. This trait replaces Natural Attack.
Stubborn: Aurochians gain a +2 racial bonus on Will saving throws to resist spells and spell-like abilities of the enchantment (charm) and enchantment (compulsion) subschools. In addition, if an Aurochian fails such a save, they receive another save 1 round later to prematurely end the effect (assuming the spell or spell-like ability has a duration greater than 1 round). This second save is made at the same DC as the first. This trait replaces Frenzy.

Nice article! I'm slightly curious how the first Aurochians came about since they're basically quarter bovines?   On second thought, I don't want to know! (ew)
