The Tree Lord, The Mighty Oak of the Highborn

Emninrieman (CR 20)
The treant known as Emninrieman has ruled over the Highborn Lands since before the formation of the Eastern Council (perhaps even longer). He is unique amongst his kind due to his fey heritage. No one is sure how he gained this heritage but most of his people assume it comes from his unusual connection to nature and the Balance.

While his rule over the Highborn Lands is absolute, he is not a tyrant. The Highborn Lands are well guarded by his fanatical followers, which includes powerful fey creatures or half-fey elves. Emninrieman has rarely been seen outside the High Forest of his homeland, but the powerful ruler had been known to visit the Knotwood before it fell into evil.

Emninrieman can fly but he doesn’t have true wings (and he rarely does). Instead, he can form his upper branches into winglike appendages. It is believed that he flies either through sheer force of will or through his unique connection to the Balance.

Emninrieman has the ability to tap into the power of the natural world in order to transform himself into an Aspect of Nature. He is a Divine Rank 0 being in such a form. (I don’t have any stats for that version of Emninrieman, yet. -RPB)

Animate Trees (Sp) Emninrieman can animate trees within 180 feet at will, controlling up to two trees at a time. It takes 1 full round for a normal tree to uproot itself. Thereafter it moves at a speed of 10 feet and fights as a treant in all respects. Animated trees lose their ability to move if Emninrieman is incapacitated or moves out of range. The ability is otherwise similar to liveoak (caster level 12th). Animated trees have the same vulnerability to fire that a treant has.
Double Damage against Objects (Ex) If Emninrieman makes a full attack against an object or structure, he deals double damage.
Chosen of Nature (Su) Emninrieman hit dice stacks with his druid levels regarding the following druid class features: Animal Companion, Divine Spells, Wild Empathy, and Wild Shape.
Trample (Ex) Reflex DC 22 half. The save DC is Strength-based.
