Special Traits

  • Incorporeal Movement. Death can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.
  • Inevitable. Death always goes last in any combat round and always hits, regardless of the target.


  • Reaping. Death touches one creature within 5 feet of it. If the creature is not undead or a construct, the target takes 21 (6d6) psychic damage and must make a DC 20 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the creature’s hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the psychic damage taken. This reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0.
  • The Sound of Inevitability (1/day). Death comes for everyone within 30 feet of it. All creatures other than constructs and undead must succeed on a DC 20 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, a creature drops to 0 hit points. On a success, a creature takes 35 (10d6) psychic damage.
