Special Traits

  • False Appearance. While the rhododeadrum remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from an ordinary rhododendron.

Actions

  • Sonic Burst. When a creature is within 30 feet of the rhododeadrum, the plant emits a loud sonic burst. The target must make a successful DC 13 Constitution saving throw or become deafened for 1 minute and take 2 (1d4) force damage.

About

You glimpse what appears to be a stunning, vivid rhododendron. Suddenly a loud blast of sound hits you and you can’t hear anything. This burst of sound is from a bizarre plant known as the rhododeadrum.

Sonic Surprise. The sound is overpowering, as if a thousand bees were in chorus. The sonic burst only affects one creature at a time.

Silent Gardens. Some evil fey intentionally place these plants near their lairs. These areas are known as ‘silent gardens’. The vast area below the floating fortress of the Unseelie Court is covered in these plants.
