  • Martial Advantage. Once per turn, the hobgoblin captain can deal an extra 14 (4d6) damage to a creature it hits with a weapon attack if that creature is within 5 feet of an ally of the hobgoblin that isn’t incapacitated.


  • Multiattack. The hobgoblin captain makes three melee attacks or two ranged attacks.
  • Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) slashing damage, or 8 (1d10 + 3) slashing damage if used with two hands.
  • Shield Bash. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (2d4 + 3) bludgeoning damage and the target must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be forced prone.

  • Leadership (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest): For 1 minute, the hobgoblin captain can utter a special command or warning whenever a nonhostile creature that it can see within 30 feet of it makes an attack roll or a saving throw. The creature can add a d4 to its roll provided it can hear and understand the captain. A creature can benefit from only one Leadership die at a time. This effect ends if the hobgoblin captain is incapacitated.


  • Parry. The hobgoblin captain adds 3 to its AC against one melee attack that would hit it. To do so, it must see the attacker and be wielding a melee weapon.
