Special Abilities
Adhesive (Ex) A gazebo mimic exudes a thick slime that acts as a powerful adhesive, holding fast any
creatures or items that touch it. An adhesive-covered mimic automatically grapples any creature it hits with
its slam attack. Opponents so grappled cannot get free while the mimic is alive without removing the adhesive first. A weapon that strikes an adhesive-coated mimic is stuck fast unless the wielder succeeds on a DC 26 Reflex save. A successful DC 26 Strength check is needed to pry off a stuck weapon. Strong alcohol or universal solvent dissolves the adhesive, but the mimic can still grapple normally. A mimic can dissolve its adhesive at will, and the substance breaks down 5 rounds after the creature dies. The save DC is Strength-based.
Mimic Object (Ex) A gazebo mimic can assumes the form of a freestanding outdoor building, such as a pavillion, kiosk, small pagoda, outhouse, or the eponymous gazebo. A mimic gains a +20 racial bonus on Disguise checks when imitating an structure in this manner. Disguise is always a class skill for a mimic.
