Special Traits

  • Charge. If the divine boar moves at least 20 feet straight toward a target and then hits it with a tusk attack on the same turn, the target takes an extra 7 (2d6) slashing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 16 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Illumination. The divine boar sheds bright light in a 10-foot radius and dim light for an additional 10 feet.
  • Keen Smell. The divine boar has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
  • Magic Resistance. The divine boar has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Relentless (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). If the divine boar takes 10 damage or less that would reduce it to 0 hit points, it is reduced to 1 hit point instead.


  • Tusk. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d6 + 5) slashing damage plus 7 (2d6) fire damage.
  • Fire Breath (Recharge 5-6). The divine boar exhales fire in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 11 Dexterity saving throw, taking 21 (6d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


Larger than any boar should ever be, this divine boar has golden bristles and piercing black eyes.

Divine boars are 12 feet long and weigh as much as 2,000 pounds. The gods send divine boars when they are displeased, usually when mortals fail to make an appropriate sacrifice.

Divine boars are omnivorous and spend most of their time destroying farms and killing people. They viciously attack anything that approaches them. A divine boar charges its opponent, trying to rip the target open with its tusks.

Natives of Aetolia. Divine boards have since taken root in Aetolia, where one was sent to express divine displeasure.

Messengers of the Gods. Both Artemis and Zeus have used divine boars to punish their errant worshippers. They normally live on Olympus, where the gods hunt them and keep the population under control. They are sacred to Poseidon and Artemis.
