Tongue Tendrils

Transmutation [Evil]
Level: Sor/Wiz 1
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Personal
Target: Caster
Duration: 1 hour/level or until discharged

The caster’s tongue becomes a powerful tendril that she may spit up to 30 feet away. This tendril wraps around a target, lashing it to something if possible. The tendril makes a grapple attack using the caster’s melee attack bonus, dealing no damage but starting a grapple as a Small creature with a Strength score of 20. If the tendril wins the grapple check, it wraps around a limb or whatever is appropriate for the foe, lashing it to any nearby object. Each tendril has AC 14, 10 hit points, and a break DC of 24. The caster may create up to one such tendril for every four caster levels, spitting each one as a standard action. At the end of the spell’s duration, the tendrils become bloody bits of organic matter.

Material Component: A serpent’s tongue.
