Special Traits

  • Incorporeal Movement. The baleful void can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.
  • Specter Servants. The baleful void’s Life Drain and Create Specter abilities can both create specters under the wraith’s control. The baleful void can have no more than 11 total specters under its control at a time.
  • Sunlight Sensitivity. While in sunlight, the baleful void has disadvantage on attack rolls, as well as Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.


  • Life Drain. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 36 (8d8) necrotic damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 16 Constitution saving throw, or its hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the creature finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0. If a creature is slain by this attack, its spirit rises on the next turn as a traversing specter in the space of its corpse, or in the nearest unoccupied space. The specter is under the baleful void’s control.
  • Create Specter. The baleful void targets a corpse within 10 feet of it that has been dead for no longer than an hour, and died violently. The target’s spirit rises as a traversing specter in the space of its corpse, or in the nearest unoccupied space. The specter is under the baleful void’s control.
