Special Traits

  • Alert. The elemental has a +5 bonus to Initiative checks. In addition, it cannot be surprised, and other creatures do not gain advantage on attack rolls against the elemental as a result of being hidden from it.
  • Freezing Aura. A creature that touches the elemental or hits it with a successful melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 5 (1d10) cold damage.
  • Snowstorm. The 500-foot radius surrounding the elemental is heavily obscured, filled with constantly blowing snow. Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or scent are made at disadvantage. The elemental can sense everything within this area, though if the storm is quelled by magical or other supernatural means, the elemental loses its blindsight. Should this happen, the elemental can raise the storm again as an action.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The elemental makes two slam attacks.
  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (2d8 + 6) bludgeoning damage and 9 (2d8) cold damage, and the elemental may choose to push the target. If it does, the target must succeed on a DC 16 Strength saving throw or be knocked back 10 feet.

About

In the midst of blowing snow that reduces the senses to almost nothing, a mass of writhing snowstorm coalesces.

The form moves with eerie intent, a hunter unaffected by the frozen elements around it.

Pockets of raw elemental power occasionally spew forth hordes of these elementals, spreading them across the landscape. It is said that a titan created the first snowstorm elemental, her breath giving life to the raging wind and snow.
