Monster: Ulitharid

Monster: Ulitharid

Ulitharids are bigger, stronger, smarter, and more ill-tempered illithids. Thankfully, they are quite rare too. Also, they have two additional long tentacles.

Punch (11): 1d+1 crushing (KYOS: 2d-1 crushing). Reach C-1.
Tentacles (11): The ulitharid has four weak tentacles that encircle its mouth and additional two long tentacles. Each short tentacle has 1/4 ST of the body (ST 3, in this case). These tentacles can always reach and work with other limbs, regardless of body positioning, general layout, or “right” and “left.” The short tentacles have reach C-1, and lack the leverage to use any weapon that must be swung. Subtract one yard from the reach of any melee weapon wielded by the short tentacles. Each short tentacle deals 1d-6 crushing (KYOS: 1d-10 crushing) damage.
Each long tentacle has 1/2 ST of the body (ST 8, in this case). Add +2 per die to swinging damage dealt with weapons wielded by the long tentacles. Each long tentacle deals 1d-4 crushing (KYOS: 1d-5 crushing) damage, and has Reach C-2.
The tentacles give +4 with tasks that require a firm grip (including climbing).
Extract: If the ulitharid has a victim grappled by his skull or face with at least four tentacles, it can attempt to extract his brain. If the head is not protected by Sealed (i.e. the tentacles can reach the ears, mouth, nose, etc.), then the victim automatically takes 4d impaling damage to the skull, ignoring DR.
