  • Clockwork Engine. When the construct dies, it inflicts 20 (6d6) slashing damage in a 10 ft. radius. Creatures in the radius can make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw for half damage. Alternately, when it suffers a critical hit or dies, roll on the Clockwork Engine Malfunction table.
  • Constructed Nature. A clockwork creature doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The scrapion’s innate spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 10, +2 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast invisibility (self only) at will.
  • Repairable. A DC 10 tinker’s tools check restores one hit point for each point rolled over the DC.
  • Spider Climb. The scrapion can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.


  • Multiattack. The scrapion makes three attacks: two with its claws and one with its sting.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 13). The scrapion has two claws, each of which can grapple only one target.
  • Sting. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 10 ft., one creature. Hit: 7 (1d10 + 2) piercing damage, and the target must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw, taking 22 (4d10) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


This bright orange mechanical scorpion disappears before your very eyes!

Scrapions are dangerous scorpion-like beings with wicked pincers and a lethal sting. But their most terrifying ability is their invisibility cloak, which they can engage at will.

Scrapions attack any living being they can see, turning invisible and hiding until they attack. They don’t bother resuming to invisibility until their prey stops moving.
