ABOUT

Glass chess pieces are constructs created by an entity known only as the puppeteer.

The puppeteer places its pieces in advance if possible.

  • One (1) King of the Mist Lakes. This piece activates when a creature other than the puppeteer moves within 10 feet. All creatures within 20 feet must then make a DC 18 Intelligence saving throw or fall unconscious. An unconscious creature comes to if it takes damage or another creature uses an action to wake it up.
  • One (1) Queen. This piece activates when a creature other than the puppeteer moves within 10 feet. A powerful crystalline sound rings out. Any creature within 20 feet must make a DC 18 Constitution saving throw, taking 22 (4d10) thunder damage on a failed save.
  • Two (2) Bishops. When a bishop is activated, it takes on the appearance of the puppeteer. It can talk, move, and act according to the puppeteer’s will. It has minor illusions to give the appearance it can act on the surroundings. The puppeteer can simultaneously use mage hand to enhance the trickery. Each time a creature targets the puppeteer with an attack, it rolls 1d20 to determine if one of the bishops are targeted instead. If there are two, the puppeteer must roll a 6 or higher. If there’s one, it must roll 8 or higher. A bishop has 12 AC. A bishop is destroyed if hit with an attack, but can only be destroyed by an attack that touches it. It ignores other damage and effects.
  • Two (2) Glass Knights. This piece summons a glass knight (see Glass Knight).
  • Two (2) Guardian Rooks. The rooks attract ranged spells like lightning rods. They pull in and neutralize any spell passing within 10 feet of them, and dissipate after absorbing 100 damage.
  • Eight (8) Pawns. This piece activates when creatures other than the puppeteer move within 5 feet. It then starts to glow. Creatures within 10 feet must succeed on a DC 18 Dexterity saving throw or take 17 (2d10 + 6) psychic damage.
