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
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).
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.
