SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Innate Spellcasting. The acalica’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 12). He can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Glimmer. The acalica is invisible when looked at directly. It can only be seen out of the corner of the viewers eye unless the acalica decides otherwise. Attack rolls against the acalica have a -1d4 penalty.
  • Magic Resistance. The acalica has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Weathervane. The acalica can predict the weather for the next 24 hours with 100 percent accuracy. Their coloring also reflects the current weather pattern and hints at the forecast as well. For example, on a hot day but with rain the following day, he will appear reddish/orange with blue/green wings and cap.

ACTIONS

  • Sky-Bolt. Ranged Spell Attack: +4 to hit, range 90 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (3d6 + 2) energy damage. The acalica can determine the damage type as part of the attack which can be cold, lightning or thunder. This attack does an additional 7 (2d6) damage if the target could not see the acalica when the attack hits.

REACTIONS

  • Glimmer Man. When an attack misses the acalica he may become invisible until the end of his next turn or until he attacks.

ABOUT

These small fey resemble a wizened old men that live on the high mountains and dry plateaus of their homelands. Some dress simply in bits of leaves, fur, and scraps of discarded fabric, while others wear more elaborate clothing in the style of the cultures of the high mountains and dry plateaus, including caps, jackets, and robes intricately woven and beaded in decorative patterns. They have diaphanous latticework wings resembling those of a dragonfly but they keep to themselves and out of sight, preferring privacy to interacting with mortals. While they prefer to dwell in caves, they have considerable magical power to influence the weather of the lands above, and the colors of their wings can shift and shimmer in harmony with changing seasons and temperature. They sometimes reveal themselves to druids and hedge witches who honor nature and study the shifting skies and seasons.
