Lair Actions

When fighting inside his lair, the Fountain of Misdeeds can invoke the magic of his home to take lair actions. On initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), The Fountain of Misdeeds takes a lair action to cause one of the following effects:.

  • The Fountain of Misdeeds can summon roiling mist to completely engulf a 120- foot radius area. The area becomes heavily obscured and extremely slippery, causing the area to become difficult terrain.
  • The Fountain of Misdeeds can call forth the latent siren songs imbued in the Throne of the Deep. The Fountain of Misdeeds may cast a DC 17 confuse. He cannot use this lair action again until he has used a different one.
  • The Fountain of Misdeeds causes water jets to erupt in up to 5 locations within 60 ft. of each other. Each water jet fires in a 60 ft. line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in the line must make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw. On a failure, a target takes 14 (4d6) bludgeoning damage and, if it is Huge or smaller, is pushed 20 feet away from the source of the jet and knocked prone. On a success, a target takes half the bludgeoning damage, but is neither pushed nor knocked prone. The Fountain of Misdeeds cannot use this lair action again until he has used a different one.

Throne of the Deep

The Fountain of Misdeeds passes judgment from his Throne of the Deep, nestled within an ever-changing bubble of living glass. The glass creates new buildings, passageways, and mazes at a whim, sometimes sealing off entire sections of the dwelling and allowing water to flood into others. Sirens aid in the creation of the Throne of the Deep and imbue it with their song.
