Tome of Tomes

I'm up at an ungodly hour, at least for me. One of the few perks of being your own boss in this industry is that you *don't* have to wake up before sunrise. Alas, it's still dark out and the brain in slow and desirous of caffeine. Ever wonder how to make a pod-man? :)

Upon the Generation of Pod-Men
Author: Pluff Droubly the Younger
Race: Human
Dimensions: 8x10x1.5
Weight: 4 lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, woodboard, parchment, iron clasp and lock
Rarity: Very Rare
Fields of Study: Flora, supernatural & unusual

This foul tome describes the care and maintenance of the pod-man plant as well as the evil ritual used to convert a human into a superior pod-man. The ritual can be performed by any creature of 6HD or more with a 5% chance of success per every point of intelligence of the ritualist. Performing the ritual is very risky however, as there is a cumulative 1% chance per use that the ritualist himself transforms into a superior pod-man with no knowledge of his prior self. However, the reader of the tome will be unaware of the risk, as the author fell victim to the danger before recording it for posterity.
