Dreaming Tree Shepherd

The Briarborn have a great affinity and love for their Dreaming Tree. They guard it and serve it, revering the tree as a greater being of nature.

As time progresses, the Dreaming Tree grows saplings, which are treated with the utmost of reverence, as each sapling could potentially become a new knot and home for a Briarborn community.

Dreaming Tree Ward

At 1st level, the briarborn druid gains a dreaming tree sapling to nurture and protect.

Dreaming Tree Sapling

Starting Statistics

Size Medium; Speed 30 ft.; AC +1 natural armor; Attack 2 slams (1d6);

Ability Scores Str 15, Dex 10, Con 12, Int 2, Wis 12, Cha 9; Special Qualities double damage against objects, low-light vision, Spell Resistance (5 + ½ HD).

Size Large; AC +2 natural armor; Attack 2 slams (1d8); Ability Scores Str +6, Dex –2, Con +2, Cha +4.

Special Qualities Spell Resistance (10 + ½ HD), daze as per the spell, 3 x day (DC 11; Charisma-based).

This ability replaces nature’s bond.

Wild Shape (Su)

At 4th level, a dreaming tree shepherd gains the ability to wild shape. This ability functions at her actual druid level. A dreaming tree shepherd cannot use wild shape to adopt an animal or elemental form. Instead, when she gains this ability at 4th level, she can assume the form of a Small or Medium plant. This functions as plant shape I, except the dreaming tree shepherd does not yet gain access to the constrict or poison abilities of the plant form assumed.

At 8th level, the dreaming tree shepherd ‘s wild shape gains the full range of abilities available from plant shape I.

At 10th level, a dreaming tree shepherd can assume the form of a Large or Tiny plant. Her wild shape ability now functions like plant shape II.

At 12th level, a dreaming tree shepherd can assume the form of a Huge plant. Her wild shape ability now functions like plant shape III.

This ability replaces, and otherwise functions like, the normal druid wild shape ability.

Shroud of Dreams

At 4th level, the dreaming tree shepherd gains the ability to extend the dreaming tree sapling’s spell resistance to herself also if she is within 30 feet.

This replaces wild empathy and resist nature’s lure.
