Special Traits

  • Deceptive. A mi-go is a master of deception. It has advantage on Deception and Disguise checks.
  • Evisceration (1/turn). A mi-go�s claws are capable of swiftly and painfully performing surgical operations upon helpless creatures or those it has grappled. When a mi-go makes a successful Strength (Athletics) check to grapple a target, or hits a grappled, restrained, or incapacitated target, it deals 13 (4d6) slashing damage in addition to any other effects.
  • Starflight. A mi-go can survive in the void of outer space. It flies through space at incredible speeds. Although exact travel times vary, a trip within a single solar system normally takes 3d20 months, while a trip beyond normally takes 3d20 years (or more, at the GM�s discretion) � provided the mi-go knows the way to its destination.
  • Tech-Magic. A mi-go possesses the ability to create strange items that blur the line between magic and technology, given time and resources. Each encountered mi-go will have some type of special equipment. Unlike other technological weapons mi-go tech-magic items are biological in nature and require a Wisdom (Medicine) check to figure out (see Alien Technology in Chapter 9 of the Official 5th Edition Guide for Game Masters)


  • Multiattack. The mi-go makes four claw attacks.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft.; one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage and the target is grappled (escape DC 13).
  • Marro Bonegun (Tech-Magic). Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage plus 4 (1d8) poison damage.


Mi-go are both scientists and colonists�extraterrestrial travelers from deep space who view the universe as a canvas to be mastered and controlled. Their numbers on any particular planet can vary, but taken on a galactic scale, are mind-numbing in scope.

Fungi from Beyond. Mi-go are unnaturally graceful creatures has a bulbous, lumpy head, spiny insectoid wings, and a tangle of spiky, clawed legs. Although a mi-go’s shape might suggest it is an arthropod, the creature is, in fact, a highly evolved form of extraterrestrial fungus. Mi-go communicates via a combination of clicking pincers and subtle shifts in the coloration of their bulbous heads. A typical mi-go is roughly the size of a human but weighs only 90 pounds.
