An Amphistaff is a serpentine creature genetically engineered by the Yuuzhan Vong to serve as a weapon. The Amphistaff can become as rigid as stone or as flexible as rope, and it can contract the muscles around its head and tail to form razor-sharp edges. Yuuzhan Vong treat the Amphistaff as a Simple Weapon (Melee), rather than an Exotic Weapon (Melee).

Instead of dealing damage with the Whip, the wielder may use it to Pin or Trip the target as though they were using the Pin or Trip Feats. The wielder must be proficient with the Amphistaff, but doesn't need to have the Pin or Trip Feats, to use this Weapon feature.
