Special Traits


  • Multiattack. The greater mummy can use its Dreadful Glare and make one attack with its rotting fist.
  • Rotting Fist. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (3d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage plus 21 (6d6) necrotic damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 18 Constitution saving throw or be cursed with mummy rot.
  • Dreadful Glare. The greater mummy targets one creature it can see within 60 feet of it. If the target can see the mummy, it must succeed on a DC 19 Wisdom saving throw against this magic or become frightened until the end of the mummy’s next turn. If the target fails the saving throw by 5 or more, it is also paralyzed for the same duration. A target that succeeds on the saving throw is immune to the Dreadful Glare from mummies of all types for the next 24 hours.

Legendary Actions

The greater mummy can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The mummy regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

  • Attack. The greater mummy makes one melee attack or uses its Dreadful Glare.
  • Blinding Dust. Blinding dust and sand swirls magically around the greater mummy. Each creature within 5 feet of the mummy must succeed on a DC 19 Constitution saving throw or be blinded until the end of the creature’s next turn.
  • Blasphemous Word (Costs 2 Actions). The greater mummy utters a blasphemous word. Each non-undead creature within 10 feet of the mummy that can hear the magical utterance must succeed on a DC 19 Constitution saving throw or be stunned until the end of the mummy’s next turn.
  • Channel Negative Energy (Costs 2 Actions). The greater mummy magically unleashes negative energy. Creatures within 60 feet of the mummy, including ones behind barriers and around corners, can’t regain hit points until the end of the mummy’s next turn.
  • Whirlwind of Sand (Costs 2 Actions). The greater mummy magically transforms into a whirlwind of sand, moves up to 60 feet, and reverts to its normal form. While in whirlwind form, the mummy is immune to all damage, and it can’t be grappled, petrified, knocked prone, restrained, or stunned. Equipment worn or carried by the mummy remains in its possession.
