SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Insane Beauty. This ability affects all humanoids within 30 feet who are viewing a lampad in conditions brighter than dim light. Those who look directly upon the lampad must succeed at a DC 15 Wisdom saving thrown or suffer the effects of the confusion spell for 1d6 rounds. A creature that succeeds at a saving throw is immune to the same lampad’s insane beauty for 24 hours. A lampad can suppress or resume this ability at will without spending any action.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The lampad’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 15, +7 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The lampad makes 2 sling attacks.
  • Sling. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 30/120, 1 target. Hit: 8 (1d6 + 5) bludgeoning damage.

ABOUT

Dark and moody cousins to nymphs, lampads sulk along natural caverns and dank tunnels, their weeping cries echoing through the darkness. These creatures are often found carrying light in caverns and dungeons, drawing creatures to them like moths to flame. Though they prefer the darkness, they know that exposing their forms under bright conditions gives them an edge over creatures viewing them. Just as nymphs guard nature’s purest places and dryads protect their sacred trees, lampads watch over the dark places of the world deep underground. They speak to the stone that forms their murky world, and their forlorn cries ring out through the belly of the earth.
