Other
A grey-splotched pink, the glistening cerebralite is a fleshy mass that somewhat resembles a humanoid brain, though it is oversized and grossly proportioned.  Eye-stalks sprout from either hemisphere, supporting a pair of lidless eyes with iridescent irises and ebony pupils.  Thick veins span the wrinkled surface of the creature's body, pulsing rhythmically with a writhing mass of barbed tentacles sprouting from its underside.  A viscous fluid coats the cerebralite's surface, the substance phlegm-like in consistency.

Hunting strategies

Glistening cerebralites have a thick shell which protects them from attacks, giving some amount of critical padding.

A translucent shell appears around the cerebralite, absorbing most of the blow.

They use Pain (711) as the retribution effect for Cloak of Shadows (712).

Cerebralites are immune to unbalance effects, including the bolt versions of Hand of Tonis (505) and Web (118), although the secondary lore-based web effect still has a chance to disable them.

Cerebralites are too small for large races to aim at easily (-100 penalty to aiming skill) and giantman warriors and the like will require significant ambush training to avoid missing openings.

Other information

A glistening cerebralite can be found in the Rift on Plane 4 or in the Scatter. An oversized and highly developed floating brain is accompanied by a pair of eyes on stalks and tentacles to lash out at opponents. The cerebralites are drawn to mental activity, and utilize mental and electricity-based attacks to subdue their victims.

Cerebralites are extraplanar beings. A glistening cerebralite can free the brain of a fallen opponent, resulting in glistening wrinkled cerebralite. An example of this event:

DEAD>
Soundlessly, a glistening cerebralite hovers over you, its eye-stalks twisting as it contorts to gaze down on your lifeless body. As it studies your corpse, trickles of milky fluid drip from its base.

The cerebralite latches its primary tentacles to your temples rather systematically, sending low-intensity pulses of electricity through your head. A deep thrumming can be heard as your skull begins to bulge alarmingly, causing a number of cracks to form. Thin rivulets of blood stream forth, followed by an audible SPLORTCH as your brain frees itself of its confines! Half a dozen tentacles sprout from its underside, while former ocular nerves elongate into tubular eye-stalks as the strange entity swells in size.

A glistening wrinkled cerebralite hovers over its shattered former enclosure, covered in a thick mucusy membrane.

A glistening cerebralite draws inward for a moment, then charges at you with its primary tentacles spread wide!
  
The cerebralite brings its tentacles around and manages to wrap them around your body, constricting you in a loose grapple!
... 8 points of damage!
Solid chest grapple, you are winded!
You are knocked to the ground!
You are stunned for 3 rounds!
Roundtime: 5 sec

Messaging

A glistening cerebralite floats in, leaving a thick trail of amorphous goo in its wake.

A glistening cerebralite twists and coils its tentacles, sending tendrils of electricity crawling along the surface of its brain-like form.
