Special Traits

  • Spider Climb. The fey caterpillar can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on caverns, without needing to make an ability check.


  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d8 + 1) piercing damage plus 2 (1d4) poison damage.
  • Smoke Rings. The fey caterpillar smokes a pipe and blows out large smoke rings in a 30-ft. cone. Each creature in the area must make successful DC 13 Dexterity saving throws or become trapped in a smoke ring. They are grappled, escape DC 13 .


Large smoke rings drift down the forest trail and pass your party. Then you spot their source, a giant caterpillar is puffing on a pipe astride a large mushroom. The fey caterpillar isn’t one of the friendliest creatures. It is known to make rude comments and ask difficult questions. These fey don’t like visitors and will give them an especially difficult time.

Peculiar Pipe. The fey caterpillar’s pipe enables them to send out magical rings. This pipe works for any creature, not just this fey.

Puzzling Poetry. Every now and then this creature spouts obscure poems and riddles. If newcomers can make sense of any of these, the fey caterpillar will be rather impressed.
