The dryad is a creature that looks like a tree. There are as many different types of dryads as there are trees, some look like oaks while another may look like a willow. A dryad will inhabit a forest that it will best blend in to. The Dryads have a long slit on one side of the trunk and running from near the ground to the first of their branches that hides their mouth. When opened the mouth displays blackish-brown sharp teeth are exposed and the mouth drips a goo that smells of wet earth and blood. In its canopy is a set of two tentacles used to grasp prey and pull them into its mouth, these tentacles look like bare limbs with short stubby branches on the end like they have been chewed on. The Dryad is able to walk but is extremely slow at it and so depends on its lure to attract prey close to its reach. When done walking the dryad will dig its feet into the ground and wait for prey to come by. Dryads increase in size over their life time which is quite long.
Dryads are a plant based creature that have developed a taste for flesh. They mainly are active at night, but will hunt during the day as needed. A single Dryad is usually found in one forest, marsh
Dryads are solo creatures.
Encounter Tactics
The Dryad will use the lure and focus on a specific target in an attempt to separate them from a group and away from a road or trail. The lure is a root based appendage that has a powerful charm that emanates from it. The charmed may see a member of the targets species that appears to be naked and running through the woods, or it may looks like someone wounded and limping away, or it may even look like a favorite prey item of the target. The Dryad will use whatever works best to lure a creature it feels it can take with little effort and risk to itself. If the target is not charmed they will see the lure a knotted root protruding from the ground slowly waging back and forth. A Dryad upon realizing the charm failed will pull the lure back into the ground to hide it, but will lose it over revealing its true location. A Dryad will never attack a target that is as big as itself, or that it feels is too dangerous.
