  • Magic Resistance. The cephalophore has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The cephalophore’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Shatter Weapons. Whenever a character strikes a cephalophore with a weapon (magical or non-magical), after dealing damage, the weapon takes a permanent and cumulative ?1 penalty to damage rolls. If its penalty drops to ?5, the weapon is destroyed.
