Special Traits

  • Death Burst. When the mephit dies, it explodes in a burst of earthen fragments. Each creature within 5 feet of the mephit must succeed on a DC 11 Dexterity saving throw or take 7 (2d6) bludgeoning damage.
  • Innate Spellcasting (1/day). The mephit’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma. It can innately cast enlarge/reduce (self only, enlarge only), requiring no material components.


  • Fists. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d6 + 1) bludgeoning damage.
  • Earthen Breath (recharge 6). The mephit belches chunks of earth in a 15-foot cone, and the ground in that area becomes difficult terrain until cleared away. Each 5-foot square portion of the area requires at least 1 minute to clear by hand.


Earth mephits are commonly found on the Plane of Earth. These mephits are plodding and humorless.
