Wandra look like a beautiful eight foot tall green-skinned woman. Instead of normal sage spells, Wandra can use the following magical abilities at will, one at a time, once per round: detect magic, locate plants, hold plant, speak with plants, and warp wood. When spell level is important treat her as an eighth level spellcaster. Once every other round she can cast a curse. This curse turns the victim into a vegetable man unless they save vs spells. If the victim turns into a vegetable man, they must make a second saving throw vs spells. If they fail the second saving throw, they will join forces with Wandra as if she was using a monstrous charm power on them.

Once turned into a vegetable man, the victim will possess all of their normal skills, hit points, class levels, etc. but they will take damage as if they had just turned into a wererat if they are wearing armor (see the Dungeon Master Guide page 23). In addition, they must re-roll their intelligence score using a 1d4+2. Despite their semi- to low intelligence, vegetable men can still read, but they are unable to cast spells.
