SPECIAL ABILITIES

All-Around Vision (Su)

When it has at least two living seedlings or parasites within 50 feet, a begedhi mother plant can see in all directions and can’t be flanked.

Entangling Vines (Su)

A riot of vines grows in a 10-foot radius around a begedhi mother plant, creating an effect similar to a xenodruid mystic’s grasping vines connection power (DC 16). The mother plant is unaffected by this manifestation.

Grab and Drag (Ex)

When a begedhi mother plant hits with its vine attack, it deals normal damage, but if the attack roll hits the target’s KAC + 4, it also automatically grapples the foe as a free action or pins the target if it hits KAC + 13. When it grapples a foe in this manner, a mother plant can pull the target 5 feet closer to it without requiring an action. The begedhi mother plant can maintain the grapple on subsequent rounds either by hitting again with its vine attack or by performing a grapple combat maneuver normally.

Implant Parasite (Ex)

As a swift action, a begedhi mother plant can force a begedhi parasite down the throat of a creature it has grappled or an adjacent helpless creature.

Spores (Ex)

As a standard action, a begedhi mother plant can release spores in a 30-foot-radius burst. A creature within the burst that fails a DC 16 Will save is stunned until the beginning of its turn and can take no actions that turn other than a double move toward the begedhi mother plant. This is a mind-affecting, compulsion effect.

Strangle (Ex)

An opponent grappled by a begedhi mother plant cannot speak or use any language-dependent abilities.

ECOLOGY

These sinister plants use their mind-altering spores to influence and enslave lesser races while spreading their seed across the galaxy.
