Special Traits

  • Mud Pool. If the mudman leaves the mud pool it dwells in, it has disadvantage of all attack rolls, ability checks, and saving throws while outside the pool.
  • False Appearance. While the mudman remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from an ordinary mound of mud.


  • Multiattack. The mudman makes two Slam attacks.
  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage.
  • Mud Bomb. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, range 10 ft., one target. Hit: The target is blinded and restrained. A creature restrained by a mud bomb can use its action to make a DC 13 Strength check. On a success, it frees itself, ending the restrained and blinded conditions.
  • Engulf (recharge 5–6). The mudman moves up to its speed. While doing so, it can enter a Medium or smaller creature’s space. Whenever the mudman enters a creature’s space, the creature must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw. On a successful save, the mudman is pushed 5 feet back and knocked prone. On a failed save, the mudman enters the creature’s space. The engulfed creature can’t breathe, is restrained and blinded, and takes 6 (1d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage at the start of each of the mudman’s turns. An engulfed creature can try to escape by taking an action to make a DC 13 Strength check. On a success, the creature escapes and enters a space of its choice within 5 feet of the mudman, ending the restrained and blinded conditions.
