Sabotenders, animate and conscious cacti native to the Altepa Desert, are well-known in adventurer circles for their merciless and fierce nature, especially when attacked. Their infamous ability, "1000 Needles," fires one-thousand of their incredible sharp needles, hitting everything within range; this ability has caused many a traveler through the desert no small amount of pain.
