Tentacloon CR 5

A metal egg the size of a large dog floats above the ground, trailing a number of tools and sharp implements from its underbelly. A pair of glowing red spots on its front suggests a malevolent intellect.

Blindsense (vibration)

A tentacloon robot must stake one of its tentacles a few inches into the ground to gain the benefits of its blindsense ability. Doing so is a swift action, but if it moves out of the square in which it did this, it loses this sense.

Illumination (Su)

The eyes of a tentacloon project normal light in a 60-foot cone, and in the area beyond that, out to a 120-foot cone. It can close its eyes to eliminate the illumination, but this renders it blind.

Levitative Movement (Su)

When the tentacloon uses its land speed, its body floats 5 feet off the ground. It is unaffected by difficult or hazardous terrain. When it flies more than 5 feet above the ground, its speed drops to 10 feet.

Natural Healing (Ex)

A tentacloon regains 1 HP for every 8 hours it remains motionless.

Quintescent Lightning (Su)

As a standard action, a tentacloon can spend 1 resolve point to release a stroke of lightning like that of a lightning bolt spell (5d6, DC 15).


Environment any
Organization solitary

Tentacloons are highly adaptable probe droids devised by a mysterious tentacled alien race, able to survey and explore through land, air, and sea.

They carry a potent electrical charge, which they use to disable prey that might be retrieved for their masters, or simply to destroy creatures interfering with their mission of exploration and infiltration.
