Bond of the Centipede [Symbiotic] Prerequisites: Aspect of the Vermin class feature, Aspect of the Centipede.Benefit: [Symbiotic] feats increase the effectiveness of your [Hivemaster] feats. For your aspect of the centipede feat, you are considered to have one more level in hivemaster. The individual benefits of that feat are also altered, as follows.

3: Your original legs grow together and your bones fuse into something more akin to a spinal cord, while the dozens of legs remain in place. You are now appear as a grotesque centipede from the waist down. Your body type changes to 'long', if it wasn't already. Also, all of your dozens of legs grant you the benefit of being quadrupedal, granting you a +4 bonus on ability checks made to resist being bull rushed, overran, or tripped, and carrying capacity equal to x1.5 the normal carrying capacity of a creature your size. You still retain the bonus on balance checks that the aspect of the centipede feat originally gave you.

7: The two claws that have grown from your torso twist and distend, till they are able to grab things even better than your original arms. You gain the improved grab special ability, following the rules in the ability description, except that you only have to hit a creature of your size or smaller. This ability triggers whenever you hit with a claw attack that you possess.

11: Your body grows longer and longer, till you are barely recognizable as what you originally were. The semi-size increase that the aspect of the centipede feat originally gave you, turns into an official size increase. You grow one size category, gaining a +4 bonus to all size dependant checks, -4 to hide checks, the space and reach of your new size category (keep in mind that you are of the 'long' body type), and the changes to attack rolls and AC that would be normal due to your increased size. This supercede's (replace's) the normal benefit of this level from the aspect of the centipede feat.

15: Your instincts grow more and more perfectly in sync with the instincts of the swarms of centipede's that cover you, and now, when you have an enemy in your clutches, you find yourself able to actually squeeze the life out of them. You gain the constrict special ability, following the rules in the ability description. Your constrict damage is equal to the normal damage for your claw attacks you gained from the aspect of the centipede feat, minus bonus damage from feats, ability scores, or magical enhancements.

Special: A character can only have a number of [Symbiotic] feats equal to the number of times that they have gained the Aspect of the Vermin class feature.
