  • Magic Resistance. The binguai has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

  • Multiattack. The binguai makes two Icy Chains attacks.
  • Icy Chains. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 25 (3d12 + 6) bludgeoning damage plus 10 (3d6) cold damage.
  • Freezing Whirlwind (recharge 5-6). The binguai summons a swirling storm of ice and snow that affects a 20-foot radius. Each creature in the area must make a DC 16 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, a target takes 45 (10d8) Cold damage and is imprisoned in a column of ice. Imprisoned targets are restrained (escape DC 16) and must make DC 16 Constitution saving throws each round or take 3 (1d6) cold damage from the effects of ice and suffocation. The restrained target can escape or be freed by a companion. The ice is Armor Class 12 and has 15 hit points. Once the ice is destroyed, the target can act normally.


The binguai, or frozen giants, are the undead remains of shamans or especially bloodthirsty warriors risen from the dead to visit frozen doom upon their tribes’ enemies. The presence of binguai in a group of warriors is considered an especially auspicious omen for the frost giants, and they are known to fight with greater ferocity when accompanied by one. In addition to their role in a frost giant tribe, binguai may also rise from their graves to defend the final resting places of other frost giants. In such cases, binguai stand watch over tombs, cairns, or places where other giants have fallen, and may sometimes be mistaken for corpses themselves. Should intruders approach too closely, however, the binguai shows itself and attacks fiercely, unleashing its freezing whirlwind before attacking.
