  • Swarm. The swarm can occupy another creature’s space and vice versa, and the swarm can move through any opening large enough for a Tiny insect. The swarm can’t regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.


  • Stings. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 0 ft., one target in the swarm’s space. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage or 2 (1d4) if the swarm has half of its hit points or fewer. Those damaged by the sting must make a DC 12 Constitution saving throw, take 10 (3d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage of a successful one. A failed saving throw also charms the target. But this strange, disorienting charm puts the creature in a swirl of hallucinations, preventing them from attacking any dream wasp from the same colony. At the start of each turn, a creature currently charmed by the dream wasp’s sting can attempt a DC 12 Will saving throw. on a success, the charm ends.

  • Innate Spellcasting. The dream wasp’s innate spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 10, +12 to hit with spell attacks). The dream wasp can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material component.

Drones gain Intelligence boost and innate spellcasting as those in a large colony, and they gain the following innate spells in addition.

Each queen’s Intelligence increases to 16 (+3), increasing their spells save to DC 14 and +16 to hit with a spell attack. They gain the following innate spells in addition to the ones gained as a large colony and that they already have.
