  • Spear of the Emissary. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d6 + 5) piercing damage plus 4 (1d8) radiant damage or 9 (1d8 + 5) piercing damage plus 4 (1d8) radiant damage if used with two hands. Also, once on each of its turns, the angelic emissary can try to banish a creature it hits with the spear. The target must succeed on a DC 13 Charisma saving throw or be banished to a harmless demiplane for 1 minute. It can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. When the target returns, it reappears in the space it was last in or in the nearest unoccupied space if its previous one is occupied.


There are legends that talk of emissaries soaring through the sky in golden armor, shining brighter than the sun, either as a sign of imminent prosperity or a harbinger of impending doom. The arrival of such angels in mortal realms are thus taken quite seriously; anticipated by some and feared by others.
