Although they understand Undercommon, they rarely communicate in a meaningful way.


Breath Weapon (Su): Cone of acid 50 feet long, once every 1d4 rounds; damage 14d10, Reflex half DC 30.

Psionics (Sp): At will- body equilibrium, charm monster, clairaudience/clairvoyance, detect thoughts, levitate, suggestion, teleport, and true telekinesis. These abilities are as the powers manifested by an 18th-level psion.

Attack/Defense Modes (Sp): At will- all/all.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the neothelid must hit a creature with two tentacles during the same attack. If it gets a hold, it automatically deals tentacle damage and can attempt to swallow the foe.

Swallow Whole (Ex): A neothelid can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of Large or smaller size by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 2d8+12 points of crushing damage plus 1d8 points of acid damage per round from the neothelid's flesh-dissolving secretions. A swallowed creature can climb out with a successful grapple check. This places the escapee in the neothelid's tentacled maw, where another successful grapple check is needed to get free. A swallowed creature can also cut its way out by using claws or a Small or Tiny slashing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the stomach (AC 20). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

The neothelid's interior can hold one Large, two Medium-size, four Small, eight Tiny, sixteen Diminutive, or thirty-two Fine or smaller opponents.

Blindsight (Ex): The neothelid can ascertain creatures by nonvisual means within 500 feet. Beyond that range, they treat all targets as having total concealment.
