Scythe Tree

This many-branched and twisted tree has few leaves on it. In the center of its trunk is a long, deep scar. Its roots are twisted and dark, blackened as if by fire.

Tactics The scythe tree uses Lunge to increase its reach on the first round of combat. It focuses its attacks on only one or two opponents, slicing them with Power Attack. Unused to strong resistance, the scythe tree fights until it is reduced to 13 hit points or fewer, at which point it tries to flee into the forest.
