Arborcyte

A mound of thorn-covered vines writhes into motion, rearing up to reveal an assemblage of bleached bones at its core. A hellish light gleams from the empty sockets of its many skulls. An arborcyte is the corrupted soul of a slain protector of nature, be it a priest or a dryad, in the failed defense of its woodland home. A mass of vines crawl to the dying protector to serve as a vessel into the afterlife. The being's soul is then twisted by forces of desecration, and what arises is a shambling monstrosity consumed by the desire to destroy any life that enters its blighted glade. Whenever the arborcyte suffers 6 or more points of damage from a single attack, a length of its vines breaks free. This animated tendril is under the arborcyte’s control, moving and acting as an extension of the creature. Each tendril has AC 14, 6 body point, and a speed of 10 feet.
