Special Traits

  • Adaptive Biology: A Morphling starts the day with immunity to two of the following damage types. Cold, acid, lightning, thunder, psychic, necrotic, poison, or radiant. When they take damage, they may choose to change one of their two immunities to a different immunity from that list.
  • Very Personlike: A Morphling appears to be an average humanoid. A postman, a ceo, a firefighter, or any other person they have come into contact with. They appear as a perfect copy of them. But something about them is still unsettling. They have disadvantage on (Charisma) Persuasion and Advantage on (Charisma)Intimidation. When using Very Person-Like, they may not attack with their limbs.
  • Multi-Limbed Monstrosity: When a morphling dedicates itself to combat, it abandons it’s Very Personlike ability, and becomes a shifting mass of flesh, chitin, bone, teeth, and muscle. Functionally, it becomes 5 separate limbs sprouting from a core body. Whenever the morphling takes 30 or more damage in a single turn, one of its limbs dies. If all its limbs die, the morphling dies. At the end of its turn, it grows a new limb for each of its limbs that has died since its last turn, unless it has taken fire damage since its last turn. The morphling regains 10 hit points for each head regrown in this way.
  • Slashing Limbs: A morphling may take an additional reaction for each active limb that it has.
