This giant-sized, bipedal plant has long arms that look like knotted, knobby tree branches, and its legs end in three toelike roots. Dozens of leafy twigs and thorns adorn its face, arms, legs, and torso.

In the crumbling Siluvanedenn ruins of Telardon, powerful and ancient magical energies seep from an unknown number of buried arcane treasures. These energies transform hapless creatures nearby into plantlike beings of great strength.

A greenbound creature looks much like it did before transformation, although certain changes are apparent. The creature's flesh has been replaced by pulpy wood and thickly corded creepers, and tiny branches stick out from its torso, arms, and legs. Any feathers, hair, or fur it once had have been replaced by some combination of green vines, moss, flowers, and leaves.

Greenbound creatures speak any languages they knew before transformation, although their voices are now deep and gravelly.

Augmented Subtype

A creature receives this subtype whenever something happens to change its original type. Some creatures (those with an inherited template) are born with this subtype; others acquire it when they take on an acquired template. The augmented subtype is always paired with the creature's original type. For example, a wizard's raven familiar is a magical beast (augmented animal). A creature with the augmented subtype usually has the traits of its current type, but the features of its original type. For example, a wizard's raven familiar has an animal's features and the traits of a magical beast.
