 Over-Category: Biophage 
 Kingdom: Plant Life 
Beings that are biophages are those who eat and survive by the consumption of other living and materials or various nutrients that reside in the earth or native terrain.
Plant Life in this context are vegetable creatures, not ordinary flora. Most of them are ambulatory, and some are carnivorous. The most well-known plants are the shambling mound and the treant. Fungal creatures such as the gas spore also fall into this category.
Plants have immunity to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, polymorph, and stunning. Further, they cannot be charmed or affected by phantasms; however, glamours may still fool them. Plants breathe and eat, but do not sleep.

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.
