Constrict:
An Alarus can draw up to (or drop onto) a foe and then wrap around him, immediately squeezing the victim for 3d8 damage.

Suffocate:
Alaruses can also choose to suffocate the victim for 1d10 nonlethal damage/round if wrapped around the neck, or the entire victim.


The Alarus is a thin sheet of metal, about 20 ft by 15 ft. It is hardly reflective at all,
but can take on any Large hollow shape it wishes or even become a solid
Medium character, such as a half-elf fighter. An Alarus usually attacks by transforming
into a mundane, everyday item, such as a rope - and wrapping around and suffocating the
creature once near.

Alaruses will attack anything on sight, regardless of alignment or size.



So what do you think? First time ever creating a monster. It was originally going to behave like a swarm, but then it'd be nigh-invincible, and the only way I can think of to defeat it is to capture it in a Bag of Holding or something...

Oh, and I'm not sure about the CR, could someone please help me with that?
