More information...


Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a tangler must hit with a tendril attack. A tangler only takes a -10 to hold an enemy with one tendril, rather than the normal -20 incurred by creatures without the Multigrab feat.

Swallow Whole (Ex):A tangler can try to swallow a grabbed opponent by making a successful grapple check. Once inside the plant’s mass, the opponent takes 2d6 points of acid damage per round. A swallowed creature can climb out of the mass with a successful grapple check. This returns it to the plant’s maw, where another successful grapple check is needed to get free. A swallowed creature can also cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the tangler’s interior (AC 17). Once the creature exits, the plant’s many extra limbs seal the hole until it heals; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out. A Huge tangler’s interior can hold 2 Large, 8 Medium, 32 Small, 128 Tiny, or 512 Diminutive or smaller opponents.

Constrict (Ex): A tangler does automatic tendril damage on a successful grapple check.

The Tangler Tree waits for its prey to walk within reach before grabbing them with its tendrils and attempting to swallow them whole. It is aggressive, but patient enough to wait for the prey to be well within reach before attacking.
