  • Innate Spellcasting. The boggle’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 14, +6 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Mindboggle Aura. Any creature ending a turn within 30 ft. of the boggle must make a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or gain disadvantage on Wisdom (Perception) skill checks and initiative rolls until 13 minutes after leaving the aura.
  • Shapechanger. The boggle can use its action to polymorph into a scarecrow, calf, goat, goose or back into its true form. Its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.


  • Multiattack. The boggle makes one of each of its attacks.

Boggles are frenetic and capricious fey who love to run and cavort through the woods, pulling pranks on animals, people, monsters, and their fellow fey. What these country cousins to bogeymen love more than anything, though, is the humor and laughter of mortals. When bored, a boggle randomly selects a person or family to befriend and begins a campaign of pranks and teasing; the boggle usually neglects to introduce itself to these new friends, remaining hidden to heighten the growing panic and make the game more hilarious. Its innate magic creates strange lights and sounds and causes erratic behavior, adding to the mortals’ dread. A boggle stands 3 feet tall and weighs 55 pounds.
