  • Remorse. When the forlarren reduces a creature to 0 Hit Points, it must succeed a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw or be stunned for 2 (1d4) rounds due to its overwhelming guilt.
  • Innate Spellcasting: The forlarren’s spell casting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 11). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:


  • Multiattack. The forlarren makes two claw attacks.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, 5 ft. reach, one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) slashing damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or take 3 (1d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successful one.


  • Shared Remorse. When the forlarren fails a saving throw against its own Remorse ability, it can choose a creature within 30 feet to share its guilt. That creature must succeed a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw or be stunned for the same number of rounds that the forlarren is.

A nymph’s charm and beauty are such that she can seduce nearly any creature that she sets her attentions on—and often, unfortunately, creatures she would rather not consort with. When a nymph catches the attention of a fiend and the fiend takes advantage of the creature, the resulting offspring is not always a half-fiend. Roughly one in 20 such incidents results instead in a strange creature known as a forlarren—a unique creature that possesses its own unusual abilities and qualities. A forlarren stands 6 feet tall and weighs about 160 pounds. In theory, these creatures can live for hundreds of years, but most perish through violence before they turn 10.

Painful Childhood. Few nymphs survive the ordeal of giving birth to a forlarren—those who do might attempt to raise their children in loving environments, but the evil that lurks in a forlarren’s soul is powerful. In most cases where a nymph attempts to raise a forlarren child, it’s only a matter of time before the forlarren grows resentful and its evil nature compels it to murder its mother.

Most forlarrens are female, and few are capable of conceiving children of their own. A forlarren grows to adulthood with astonishing speed, reaching full growth in only a year—even those who come into the world as orphans are capable of defending themselves and seeking out food. Yet despite the rapidity with which they reach maturity, few forlarrens survive to adulthood. Cast out from both sylvan and fiendish society, the typical forlarren is a lonely creature, cursed by its own existence. It detests itself and everything it sees, and soon becomes consumed by hatred of life itself. The forlarren vents its rage on good and evil alike, lashing out at anything that approaches it.
