The humanoid before you is completly covered with leaves. It looks at you with multifaced eyes. From its back grow brambles that seem to be almost alive.


Gruarru do not hunt. they have little motivation to do anything but guard the tree from which they spawn. The creatures often post sentries around the spawning tree. If the forest they live in comes under attack, they will defend it with no fear.
Gruarru speak Druidic and some Common, though they are not very fluent in it.

Tenticle Grapple (Ex): A Gruarru can take a full round action and grapple creatures within a 20 ft. radius using his tenticles. a medium creature takes 2 tenticles to grapple, a small or less takes one. a large takes four, and huge takes 8. A gruarru has one tenticle for evey hit die it has. The creature may not grapple Gargantuan or larger creatures. A gruarru may opt to grapple normally with its tenticles.

Toss: If a creature fails a grapple check against a gruarru, the gruarru may choose to throw that creature. the creature can be thrown at any serface. The creature take 2d10 damage upon hitting the serface. The creature may attempt a DC 20 reflex save for half damage. This DC is strength based and includes a +7 racial bonus. The DC deminishes by 2 after 10 ft., and every 10 ft. after that, to a maximum of 50 ft.

Overthrow: A gruarru may use more tenticles than nessesary to grapple an opponent. Every tenticle over the minimum increases the grapple bonus and reflex save by two. another die of damage is also added.

Tenticles: a gruarru's tenticles may be used to do anything that doen't require any delicate movement. The tenticles can be severed ( hardness 5, HP 10) but they grow back in 1d4+2 days.
