The master of a morbol seedling gains a +2 bonus on Fortitude saves.

Musk (Ex)

Up to twice per day, a morbol seedling can spray a stream of noxious musk at a single target within 10 feet as a standard action. With a successful ranged touch attack, the creature struck by this spray must make a DC 10 Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1d4 rounds and then sickened for 1d4 minutes by the horrific stench. A successful save reduces the effect to only 1d4 rounds of being sickened. A creature cannot use the scent ability as long as it is affected by this musk. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Poison (Ex)

Bite—injury; save Fort DC 10; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1 Str; cure 1 save.

Sickening Breath (Su)

Once every 1d3 rounds, a morbol seedling can breathe out a foul breath in a 15-ft.-cone. Creatures within the area of effect must make a Fortitude save (DC 11) or suffer a -2 penalty to Attack rolls and skill checks for 1d4 rounds. This is wisdom based save. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 17).
