Dead Tree (CR 4)

The dead tree is a haunted leftover of a garden, an orchard, or a last patch of a forest—a single dead tree standing amid a barren landscape.

XP 1,200; CE haunt (barren land in a 20-ft. radius surrounding a dead tree); Caster Level 4th; Notice Perception DC 25 (to notice the slow vibrations of the roots); hp 8; Trigger proximity; Weakness damaged by fire; Reset 1 hour

EFFECT

When this haunt is triggered, a mass of wriggling roots bursts from the ground around it, entangling and sickening creatures as sickening entanglement (DC 13).

DESTRUCTION

The dead tree must be burned down, and the seed of a new tree must be planted in its ashes. The haunt will rise again if the seed fails to grow into a healthy tree.
