Speed 25 feet

Melee [one-action] fist +7, Damage 1d4+3 bludgeoning plus Grab and pollen touch

Limb Extension [free-action] Trigger The yellow musk thrall is reduced to 4 HP or fewer; Effect Creeper tendrils tear through the thrall’s limbs, causing its forearms to tear loose. The thrall’s melee reach increases by 5 feet.

Pollen Touch When the thrall strikes a creature, that creature is exposed to yellow musk creeper pollen, as Spray Pollen (DC 14). The creature is fascinated by the yellow musk creeper that spawned the thrall, not by the thrall itself. A creature transformed by a yellow musk creeper’s tendrils boring into its brain becomes a yellow musk thrall if it’s Small or Medium, or a yellow musk brute if Large (a Small creature becomes a Small thrall rather than a Medium one). The transformation takes 1 hour. A yellow musk thrall takes only the most rudimentary of actions: bringing the yellow musk creeper water and new creatures to infest. After a few days (or if the creeper dies), the thrall wanders off into the wilderness and falls dead within 24 hours. The body of a deceased thrall sprouts a new yellow musk creeper within hours of its death, becoming a fully grown plant within 24 hours.

Recovery From Thralldom

A creature that’s transformed into a yellow musk thrall or brute doesn’t die right away, although it no longer retains its personality, memories, or abilities as long as it exists as a thrall. Within the first few days after its transformation, a thrall or brute can be restored to its normal life with any magical effect that can remove disease or a 1-hour procedure that requires a successful DC 22 Medicine (expert) check and deals 2d6 slashing damage to the thrall or brute.
