Feyward Tree

Dark, bark-like rust encrusts the trunk of this cold-forged metal tree, its dull metallic leaves rustling with the sound of sharp metal foil as it shudders to life to attack.

Cold Iron Construction

Due to the arcane cold iron forging of a feyward tree, its natural attacks and flaying leaves special ability overcome DR as if they were cold iron and magic.

Flaying Leaves (Su)

As a free action once every 1d4+1 rounds, a feyward tree can launch a barrage of razor-sharp cold iron leaves from its branches in a 20-foot-radius burst. All creatures caught within this area take 6d6 slashing damage (Reflex DC 17 halves; Con-based).

Immunity to Magic (Ex)

A feyward tree is immune to spells or spell-like abilities that allow SR. Certain spells and effects function differently against it, as noted below.

  • A magical attack that deals cold damage slows a feyward tree (as the slow spell) for 3 rounds with no saving throw.
  • A magical attack that deals electricity damage breaks any slow effect on the feyward tree and heals 1 point for each 3 damage the attack would otherwise deal. If the amount of healing would cause the feyward tree to exceed its full normal hp, it gains any excess as temporary hp. A feyward tree gets no saving throw against electricity effects.
  • Composed mostly of rusted cold iron, a feyward tree is not affected by rust attacks, such as those of a rust monster or a rusting grasp spell.
Feyward Tree Construction

A feyward tree's cold iron body is built from nearly 2 tons of the rare black bog iron harvested in stagnant moors.
