Brain Collection (Ex)

As an adult neh-thalggu; however, upon maturing an embryonic neh-thalggu has only a single brain pod, drawn from its original host. Hence, it must bud a new brain pod for each brain it consumes; this takes 1d4 rounds and the neh-thalggu is staggered during this time. An embryonic neh-thalggu does not suffer negative levels for having less than seven stored brains, nor does consuming brains grant it additional hit dice or spellcasting ability (though it can access information that a consumed brain formerly possessed, at the GM’s discretion) until it reaches its next stage of maturity.

Poison (Ex)

Bite; save Fort DC 15; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1 Strength damage and staggered; cure 2 consecutive saves.

Strange Knowledge (Ex)

As an adult neh-thalggu.
