Animated Cauldron

A rusted iron cauldron with a mouth nearly 5 feet wide and a depth of at least 3 feet, dominates the room, its ash-covered surface shaped with a relief of capering fiends and leering devils.

Before Combat Ulizmila's cauldron appears to be a perfectly normal cauldron until the objects within the cottage are disturbed, at which point it attacks.
During Combat Uli
zmila's cauldron pursues would-be thieves to the edge of the clearing (it can squeeze through the cottage door). If it's opponents flee beyond the glade, the cauldron returns to its place withing the cottage and remains inactive until the cottage's contents are again disturbed.

Swallow Whole (Ex)

When Ulizmila's cauldron begins its turn with a grappled opponent in its "mouth," it can swallow that opponent with a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 1d4 points of nonlethal damage per round from the cauldron's wild movements. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light weapon to deal 10 points of damage to the cauldron's interior gizzard (AC 15; hardness 5). Once the creature exits, the iron of the cauldron reforms, closing the hole; another swallowed opponent must fight its own way out.

Ulizmila’s cauldron interior can hold 1 Medium, 2 Small, 4 Tiny, 8 Diminutive, or 32 Fine or smaller opponents.
