Engulf (standard; usable only when no creatures are engulfed, at-will) Acid

Targets one Medium or smaller creature; +15 vs Reflex; (automatically hits an immobilized creature); the corrosion web pulls the target into its space, and the target is grabbed. Until the grab ends, the target is dazed and takes ongoing 10 acid damage. When the grab ends, the target shifts to a square of its choosing adjacent to the corrosion web. When the corrosion web moves, it pulls any engulfed creatures with it, and it does not provoke opportunity attacks from engulfed creatures.

Towing Tendril (standard, at-will) Acid

Ranged 5; +15 vs Reflex; 2d8+9 acid damage, and the corrosion web pulls the target 3 squares.

Ensnaring Web (standard, recharge ) Acid, Zone

Area burst 1 within 10; +15 vs Reflex; 1d8+5 acid damage, and the target takes ongoing 5 acid damage and is immobilized (save ends both). Effect: The burst creates a zone of webs that lasts until the end of the corrosion web’s next turn. The zone is difficult terrain for the corrosion web’s enemies.


If the corrosion web takes fire damage while a creature is engulfed, the engulfed creature takes 10 fire damage.

Description: Most living spells are the animated form of a single spell, but occasionally multiple spells interact to form a hybrid creature. The corrosion web is an example of a living spell that combines two common arcane spells: the wizard’s web and the sorcerer’s acid orb. Such combinations transform each spell in unique ways; for the corrosion web, the silk filaments forming the mass of the creature are covered with a caustic slime. Like a fisher throwing a net, the corrosion web ensnares foes with thin layers of its ropy body.
