Special Traits

  • Broodmother. The regikheg uses pheromones to command all of the colony’s khegs. Her orders spread via pheromones over 60 feet every round. Once per round on its turn, it can use the Incite action (see Adventurers: Combat, Actions in Combat: Incite) freely.


  • Crush. The regikheg topples over on one side in a space that is 5 feet away from it. All Large or smaller creatures in that space must succeed on a DC 16 Dexterity save or be crushed under the regikheg. A crushed creature takes 45 (10d8) bludgeoning damage and becomes grappled by the regikheg (escape DC 16). Until this grapple ends, the creature is also restrained. When the regikheg makes another crush, it releases all creatures that were previously crushed beneath it.
  • Lay Khegon (Recharge 5-6). The regikheg lays an ashen khegon.
  • Mandible Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 19 (4d6 + 5) slashing damage plus 6 (1d12) acid damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 16 Strength saving throw or be pushed 20 feet away from the regikheg and become prone.
  • Acid Spray (Recharge 6). The regikheg spits acid in a 60-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw, taking 22 (4d10) acid damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


Ashen ankhegs are the soldiers and hunters of the colony. They are in charge of security in the tunnels as well as the supply of meat. From their point of view, beasts, monstrosities, and humanoids are all the same. Although they sometimes search for prey on their own, the real threat lies in group assaults, where two or three of them attack a Medium target and quickly neutralize it.
