Special Traits

  • Eerie Presence. A creature that starts its turn within 40 feet of a scarecrow, and can see it, must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw, or be overcome with a magical uneasiness until the start of its next turn. While under this effect, the creature has disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks. A creature that is immune to being frightened is immune to the scarecrow’s Eerie Presence. Similarly, a creature that has advantage on saving throws against being frightened has advantage on its saving throws against the scarecrow’s Eerie Presence.
  • False Appearance. While the scarecrow remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from a mundane scarecrow.


  • Mind Rend. The scarecrow magically fills the mind of a creature it can see, within 60 feet, with nightmarish visions that rend its psyche. The target must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw, or take 27 (6d8) psychic damage.
  • Terrify (Recharge 5-6). The scarecrow emits a magical wave of terror. Creatures within 40 feet of the scarecrow must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw, or be frightened for 1 minute. A creature that is under the effect of any scarecrow’s Eerie Presence has disadvantage on the saving throw. On its turn, a frightened creature must take the Dash action to move as far away as possible from the scarecrow. At the end of each of its turns, a creature can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.
