Special Traits

  • Breath of the Swamp. The blessed of Tsathogga can breathe air and water.
  • Fetid Shroud of the Frog God. The acolyte of Tsathogga is surrounded by a fetid, swirling shroud of foul corruption. At the start of each of the acolyte’s turns, each creature within 5 feet of it takes 7 (2d6) acid damage. A creature that touches the acolyte or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 7 (2d6) acid damage.
  • Fetid Strike. Once on each of the acolyte’s turns when it hits a creature with a weapon attack, the acolyte can cause the attack to deal an extra 4 (1d8) acid damage to the target.
  • Spellcasting. The acolyte of Tsathogga is a 3rd-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 12, +4 to hit with spell attacks). It has the following cleric spells prepared:


  • Sickle. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (1d4 + 1) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) acid damage.
  • Light Crossbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, range 80/320 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d8) piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) acid damage.
  • Plague of Frogs (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). The acolyte magically calls 1d4 giant frogs, provided that the acolyte is within 100 feet of a body of water large enough to cover a Medium creature (GM discretion). The called creatures arrive within 1d4 rounds, acting as allies of the acolyte, and obeying its spoken commands. The beasts remain for 1 hour, until the acolyte dies, or until the acolyte dismisses them as a bonus action.
