SPECIAL ABILITIES
 
Poison (Ex)
 
Slam—injury; save Fort DC 15; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect confusion and fatigue; cure no saves but “act normally” result on the confusion behavior table ends the effect.
Dream Pollen (Su)
3/day, a mandragora can fill the air with drowsiness within a 15-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect must make a Will save (DC 13) or be inflicted with Sleep status for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 2nd level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 19).
Photosynthesis (Su)
A mandragora can “drink” in the sunlight, healing itself for 1d6+3 points of damage and gaining Fast Healing 1 for 1d6 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 17).
Shriek (Su)
Once per day as a standard action, a mandragora can give voice to an unsettling shriek. All creatures within a 30-foot spread of a shrieking mandragora must make a DC 15 Will save or become nauseated for 1d4 rounds. This is a sonic, mind-affecting ability. The save DC is Constitution-based. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 2nd level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 19).
