Special Traits

  • Insane. The void cultist has advantage on saving throws against being charmed or frightened.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The void cultist makes two attacks: one with its club and one with its Flesh Twist.
  • Club. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) bludgeoning damage.
  • Flesh Twist. The void cultist has one or more of the following attack options:
  • Poisonous Spittle. Ranged Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) poison damage, and, if the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 11 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 minute.
  • Tentacle Hand. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) bludgeoning damage, and, if the target is a Medium or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 12). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the void cultist can’t use its tentacle hand against another target. In addition, the tentacle hand grants the cultist advantage on Strength (Athletics) checks.
  • Tusks. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) slashing damage.

About

Quite mad, they throw themselves into their filthy rituals and to certain death against their enemies with equal abandon. Void cultists show the corrupt nature of the Void in their bodies.

Twisted and warped, they use these deformities as weapons against the enemies of the cult. While the cultists speak Void Speech, they lack the control to cause more than superficial pain and destruction with its vile syllables.
