A Slowking is a Slowpoke that has had a Shellder attached directly to its head. The toxins race through the Slowpoke's brain and make it smart - wizard smart. Slowkings are often consulted because they are so smart that they don't even need to wear pants.
Sometimes they like to wear pants, however, especially when it is very cold. This can become a time-consuming quest for them, as few tailors make pants that are capable of fitting a Slowking.
Slowkings prefer diplomacy to warfare. Slowkings are very reasonable and prone to compromise, however when they are brought around to combat they rely almost entirely upon their mighty magics.
Always Surprised (Ex): Even if a Slowking notices a threat, it reacts so slowly that it cannot act during a surprise round.

The sample Slowking casts spells as a 12th level druid, and has access to 8/7/6/5/4/4/3 spells per day. The sample Slowking's save DC is 16 + spell level for its druid spells.
