Shadow's Displeasure When Anchor Root has fewer than 150 Hit Points, her shadow pulls at her essence to show the Vesicant Egg's displeasure. She looks pained and confused, and she becomes clumsy 1 and stupefied 1 until healed to 150 Hit Points or more. These conditions increase to 2 when below 100 Hit Points. When below 50 Hit Points, she falls unconscious.
