A basidirond takes no damage from a cold, but is slowed (as the spell) for 1 round per two caster levels. During this time, a basidirond cannot use its spores or hallucination cloud special attacks.
As a standard action, a basidirond can release a cloud of invisible spores in a 20-foot radius centered on its form. Creatures within the area must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or be confused for as long as they remain in the cloud plus 1d4 rounds after leaving the area. A new save must be made each round a creature remains within the affected area. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Rather than confusing an opponent, you can randomly determine hallucinations for each creature affected. The duration remains the same.
A basidirond’s slam attack transfers poisonous spores to its opponent. A creature struck must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or these spores take root in his flesh and deal the listed amount of Constitution damage. The save DC is Constitution-based. A remove disease spell cast on an affected character halts the Constitution damage.
