24E NEEDLE TREE. This large evergreen tree has unusually thick needles. There are always 5 needlemen guarding the tree, which appears to be important to their life cycle in some way.
5 Needlemen (AC 6; MV 9”; HD 3+4; hp 24, 9, 17, 11, 18; #AT 1-6 needles; D 1-2 each; SA Surprise 75%; MR Special – vulnerable to magic, takes 3X damage; XP 85 + 4/hp)
In a hole on the north face of the tree trunk are 2456 Jalluxian gold dragons, 432 Jalluxian platinum imperials, and a scroll tube made from an orc femur. Inside the tube are 2 scrolls. The first has the druid spells pass plant, wall of thorns, and warp wood. The second has the magic-user spells Leomund's tiny hut and magic missile.
