Special Traits

  • Maintainable. Repairing 1 hit point of damage to the hippokabeiro takes 1 hour and requires replacement parts, which can be bought in a large city for 20 st. If the hippokabeiro drops to 0 hit points, it is destroyed and unrepairable.
  • Trampling Charge. If the hippokabeiro moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a hooves attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the hippokabeiro can make another attack with its hooves against it as a bonus action.


  • Multiattack. The hippokabeiro makes two attacks, one with its hooves and one with its bite.
  • Hooves. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage plus 7 (2d6) fire damage.
  • Fire Breath (Recharge 5-6). The hippokabeiro exhales fire in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw, taking 21 (6d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


What at first appeared to be a golden warhorse is actually a clockwork horse made of gold. Its eyes are made of glittering gems, steam puffs from its nostrils, and flames flicker from its jaws.

A hippokabeiro is a golem that is about the size of a warhorse.

Sacred to Hephaestus. Hephaestus crafted the original pair of hippokabeiro for his sons, the two gods known as Kabeiroi. Hephaestus crafts these golems for his faithful followers and heroes who please him.
