    Wickerthrall are constructs most often created by druids. Although they are relatively weak, they have a unique advantage. Wickerthrall are capable of magically recreating their bodies after being destroyed, making them all but indestructible. For this reason, many druids will create an Wickerthrall to serve as a spy or a guard. The body of an Wickerthrall is a shamble of sylvan detritus–dead wood, fallen leaves, moss and fungus, and similar, contained within a wickerwork skeleton.

    Reanimate (Su)
    A Wickerthrall is capable of reforming its body after being destroyed. 1d6 rounds after being reduced to 0 hp, an Wickerthrall’s body reforms, and it is returned to full hp. It can take only partial actions in the round immediately after it reforms. Only by completely destroying or burning the body of an Wickerthrall can this reanimation be prevented. An Wickerthrall who is destroyed by a disintegrate spell or similar effect cannot reanimate. In addition, an Wickerthrall that is dealt 15 or more points of fire damage is so badly burned that it cannot reanimate unless that damage is restored. In addition, once an Wickerthrall has been reduced to 0 hp, a character may set it on fire with flint and tinder or similar means as a full-round action, destroying it finally.

    Creating an Wickerthrall
    The body of an Wickerthrall is formed from assorted plant detritus, which can be easily scavenged from any forest, and a wickerwork skeleton, worth 15 gp. Assembling the body requires a DC 10 Craft (Basketweaving) or Craft (Wickerwork) check.

    I no longer actively read the forums, and probably won't respond to any PMs. I'm fine with people using my homebrew in anything, including fan-compilations and wikis, as long as you credit me.

    Are you presenting this as an alternative to the previously created wicker man (from Fiend Folio, if I recall) or are you unaware of the previous creature's existence? o.o;

    Though I suppose the intent is somewhat different.
    The name threw me, there.

    Is there already a wickerman? Hate it when I do that. Anyone have a suggestion for a new name?

    I like wood golem, though that might be taken. That suggestion reminded me of the wood puppet golem thingies from Twilight Princess, which keep respawning until you finish the puzzle, gah.

    Good call, that's what I based them off of.

    ...Nick Cage? (Give him the ability to Turn humanoids with his acting)

    Seriously, why not just use your wickerman instead of the fiendfolio one? Or maybe a name for it could be Animated Undergrowth, Moss Golem, Potpourri (No idea how to spell it) Faux Treant, Druid's Shamble.

    Think I'll go with Wickerthrall, although some of those names you threw out are giving me ideas...
