H759

Leshies are nature spirits bound to small plant-like bodies. They are usually created by senior druids, but sometimes form spontaneously in areas of high magic. Leshies usually have a vaguely humanoid pattern to them, with two arm-like clusters of branches and some head-like branches on top where their eyes are.

Leshy traits:
  • Small -- +1 AC and attack, +4 hide
  • Abilities: -2 str, +2 dex, +2 con, -2 int, -2 cha
  • Damage reduction: 5/- because their bodies are made of wood
  • Photosynthesis: a Leshy who spends the day outdoors need not eat, though he still must drink normally
  • Skills: Leshies have a +16 bonus to disguising themselves as ordinary plants. Since their branches aren't really hands, they take a -4 penalty on Disable Device, Open Lock, and Sleight of Hand checks.
  • Automatic Languages: Sylvan. Bonus Languages: Common, Druidic.
  • Plant Type
  • Favored Class: ranger
