SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Indomitable Defense. The brute has advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws. When it makes an attack, it gains a +2 bonus to damage roll. Additionally, the brute has resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage. The brute can’t use this feature again until it finishes a short or long rest.

ACTIONS

  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 +3) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a Large or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 13). The brute has advantage on attack rolls against the grappled creature.
  • Debris Toss (Recharge 6). The brute throws a random piece of nearby debris in a line that is 30 feet long and 5 feet wide, provided it has no creature grappled. Each creature in that line must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

REACTIONS

  • Counter Grapple. When the brute takes damage from a creature within its reach, it can use its reaction to attempt to grapple the creature.
