PFS StandardTemteki

Though it superficially resembles a cypress tree and is easily mistaken for an arboreal or other similar plant creature, Temteki is actually an earth elemental, a creature of living earth and stone. In normal situations, Temteki is content to remain still and blend into the jungle when observing other creatures, using its natural camouflage to assist in harrying those it considers interlopers disturbing its home. Temteki usually dissuades such intruders with a combination of surprise attacks and nonlethal snares; the elemental is more interested in getting them to leave than in dealing them any permanent harm. However, to those who prove determined to harm Temteki or its home, Temteki can be an implacable foe. Temteki's asymmetrical gait and appearance often alarm and confuse creatures who aren't expecting to spot it, especially since it's surprisingly stealthy for its size and appearance.

Imposing Mien Temteki can use Intimidation to Coerce or Demoralize up to four targets instead of one, rolling separate Intimidation checks against the Will DCs of each target. In addition, since Temteki Demoralizes using its appearance alone, it doesn't take a penalty to Intimidation checks to Demoralize for not speaking a language.

Earth Glide Temteki can Burrow through any earthen matter, including rock. When it does so, it moves at its full burrow Speed, leaving no tunnel or sign of its passing.Earthen Cypress (stance) Requirements Temteki is standing on the ground; Effect Temteki draws up the earth around itself into the shape of a cypress tree. While in this stance, Temteki's reach for spike Strikes increases to 15 feet, but Temteki can't move except to Burrow into the ground using Earth Glide. Doing so causes Temteki to leave this stance and creates a heap of earth in the square Temteki left, making the square difficult terrain.Toolbreaker Temteki can only target worked or crafted items with shatter, not natural objects.
