SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Clairvoyance (Recharge 4-6). The gwishin can as a reaction reroll an attack roll, saving throw, or ability check that it or another creature it can see makes. It can do this after the roll is made but not before it sees the result.
  • Spiritual Sight. The gwishin can see 60 feet into the Spiritual Plane when it is on the Material Plane, and vice versa.
  • Incorporeal Movement. The gwishin can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The gwishin’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 11, +3 to hit with spell attacks). The gwishin can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

ACTIONS

  • Chill Touch. Melee Spell Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d8 + 1) necrotic damage, and the target can’t regain hit points until the start of the gwishin’s next turn.

ABOUT

Gwishin are restless spirits of those who have died, often under traumatic circumstances. They can be found nearly anywhere but most often congregate in abandoned buildings and villages or cemeteries, or in the forests and hills nearby.

Gwishin may form when a person dies with a great task unfinished, especially one of revenge. Some pass on the underworld after completing their mission, but strong-willed spirits may remain to terrorize the living.
