  • Assassinate. During its first turn, the cultist of Beli Lal has advantage on attack rolls against any creature that hasn’t taken a turn. Any hit the cultist scores against a surprised creature is a critical hit.
  • Dark Devotion. The cultist has advantage on saving throws against being charmed or frightened.
  • Pack Tactics. The cultist has advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one of the cultist’s allies is within 5 ft. of the creature and the ally isn’t incapacitated.
  • Sneak Attack. Once per turn, the cultist deals an extra 7 (2d6) damage when it hits a target with a weapon attack and has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 5 ft. of an ally of the cultist that isn’t incapacitated and the cultist doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.


  • Multiattack. The cultist makes two short sword attacks or one garrote attack.
  • Ritual Garrote. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d10 + 3) slashing damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 15). Until the grapple ends, the target can’t breathe and takes 13 (2d10 + 3) slashing damage at the start of each of its turns. The cultist can’t make attacks while grappling a creature in this way.
  • Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6+ 3) piercing damage, and the target must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw, taking 14 (4d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
