Whenever anyone but one
touches or opens the protected book, writhing gray tentacles emerge from the
ground in a 5 ft. radius centered on the book. The spell creates 1d4 tentacles,
plus an additional tentacle per caster level up to a maximum of fifteen tentacles.
For example, an 8th level wizard creates 1d4+8 tentacles. Each tentacle is 20
feet long (Huge) and saves as you do. It has an AC 16, 1 hit point/per caster
level and an attack bonus of +1/per caster level. The tentacles are immune to
the same effects as constructs. The tentacles attack as mindless creatures,
randomly striking anything, including anything larger than a tiny object. On
a successful hit, the tentacles deliver 1d4 points of damage, and also secrete
thin, black mucous through their porous skin. Any creature struck by one of
the tentacles must make a successful Reflex save DC16 or be blinded by the foul
liquid for 1d6 rounds. The tentacles are immobile, and once summoned remain
in existence for 1 round/per caster level or until slain, whichever occurs first.
The DC for a rogue using
her Search skill to detect Phineus writhing
tentacles is 29.
