    Hmm, the first sentence of tactics "Sugos lie buried in the mud until prey approaches, then seek to attach as many sucker-tentacles as possible, through which they drain a victim dry of blood." reads a bit odd.

    I'd suggest either "Sugos lie buried in the mud until prey approaches, then seek to attach as many sucker-tentacles as possible, through which they drain their victims dry of blood." or "Sugos lie buried in the mud until prey approaches, then seek to attach as many sucker-tentacles as possible to drain their victims dry of blood."?

    Also, shouldn't the Attach's "If a sugo hits with a sucker-tentacle attack, the sucker-tentacles," have a singular "sucker-tentacle" for both instances?

    Revised.

    Should we offer up a non-psionic variant underbar?

    If you like. Just need to change the PLAs to SLAs.

    Psi-Like Abilities: At will—chameleon, ego whip (2d4 Cha, DC 17)*, grip of iron (+2 enhancement bonus)*, thought shield (6 rounds, power resistance 18)*; 3/day—concealing amorpha, id insinuation (3 targets, DC 17)*, psionic blast (3 rounds, DC 16)*, strength of my enemy (+2 maximum enhancement bonus)*; 1/day—greater concealing amorpha, intellect fortress (4 rounds)*. Manifester level 7th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

    blur, invisibility and greater invisibility instead of chameleon, concealing amorpha and greater concealing amorpha?

    vampiric touch instead of strength of my enemy?

    Not sure what to substitute for the Psionic attack/defense modes.

    We don't have to provide replacements for each power. We can just capture a similar theme.

    So, how about...

    Soell-Like Abilities: At will—blur, lesser confusion (DC 14); 3/day—confusion (DC 17), invisibility (self only), vampiric touch; 1/day—greater invisibility (self only), spell resistance. Caster level 7th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

    Mind blast usually takes the place of psionic blast, but is generally only used on illithid-related creatures. Borrow it, or leave it off?

    We'll also need to replace Autohypnosis ranks and Rapid Metabolism.

    The spells look good.

    How about giving it fear as a SLA to substitute for mind blast?

    Endurance would seem the clostest base feat match to Rapid Metabolism.

    Figuring out a substitute for Autohypnosis is a bit trickier. I'm tempted to switch those ranks to Knowledge (religion) and imply that's why it switched to Lawfulness...

    Fear is a good replacement. Endurance, too.

    I noticed it already has inherent spell resistance, so how about spell immunity or globe of invulnerability rather than spell resistance 1/day?

    Hmm...I'm not sure I like the idea of the finding religion. How about Survival?

    It doesn't have a very high CL, so the 6th level standard globe of invulnerability feels a bit too powerful.

    I'd go for Survival and lesser globe of invulnerability.
