This black flower absorbs moisture from a living body as if horrid wilting (1d6) is cast each round on all creatures within a 10-ft. radius. A successful Fortitude save (DC 19) must be made each round to avoid the effects. If a victim reaches 0 hit points, the 10-ft. long Hellrose roots wrap around the desiccated husk to begin digestion. A Medium size creature can be digested in 4d20 rounds. A thorny Hellrose is easily destroyed by uprooting, which instantly kills it. None have ever successfully been transplanted or grown from seeds.
