Strix Tree

A strix tree itself is not a direct threat; however, it has a mystical quality to it as it acts as a niche for a colony of strix. The tree is partially connected to other planes of existence, giving an odd rebirthing power of its lost occupants. It can house up to 12 strix living in it. Whenever one is killed, the strix tree will inexplicably respawn a replacement at a rate of one new strix per round, but never exceeding the maximum of twelve. There is nothing mystical about the strix reproduced; they are merely animals with no special properties. The tree appears as a gnarled olive tree with large wasp nest-like structures in it. The arbor can be burned but will scream when set ablaze, plus it will require four rounds (or remaining body points) to stop spawning new strix and die. If the tree is cut, it sprays ichor (Agility DC:18), splattering its attacker. The ichor will act as a pheromone which drives any unattached strix to attack, selecting that individual first over others.
