Draining Tentacles (Ex)

An oshageros’s tentacles flicker with chaotic energies that sap the vigor of those they strike. A creature struck by a tentacle takes 1 point of Dexterity drain and is staggered for 1 round; this effect is negated with a successful DC 24 Fortitude save, but a new saving throw must be attempted for each tentacle hit. The duration of the staggered effect stacks with multiple hits. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Warpwave Burst (Su)

As a standard action once every 1d4 rounds, an oshageros can unleash a powerful chaotic force in a 20-foot-radius burst centered on itself. This burst affects all creatures in the area save for other proteans. Affected creatures are struck by a warpwave and are staggered for 1 round.

A successful DC 24 Fortitude save negates this effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.


Environment any (Maelstrom)
Organization solitary, pair, or school (3–8 oshageroses)
Treasure standard

Oshageroses exist to destroy or ward away creatures seen as antithetical to true chaos.

An oshageros is 8 feet long and weighs 220 pounds.
