  • Celestial Weapons. The niutomi’s weapon attacks are magical. When the niutomi hits with any weapon, the weapon deals an extra 2d8 radiant damage or 4d8 radiant damage against undead (included in the attack).
  • Magic Resistance. The niutomi has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.


  • Multiattack. The niutomi makes two melee attacks.
  • Pitchfork. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage plus 9 (2d8) radiant damage or 18 (4d8) radiant damage against undead.
  • Chain Undead. The niutomi may touch one incapacitated, paralyzed, petrified, stunned, or unconscious undead. The target must then make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or be reduced to 0 hit points. If the saving throw succeeds, the undead creature loses the condition and may act normally on its next turn. Undead reduced to 0 hit points are chained on the niutomi’s next turn and returned to their proper burial place or other destination. So long as they remain chained, the undead remain at rest and at 0 hit points.
  • Subdue Undead. The niutomi takes an action to force all undead within 10 feet to make a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or be incapacitated for 1d6 rounds.


The ox-headed warriors (although some are also said to have the heads of horses) are servants of the gods sent to enforce celestial decrees. They are sometimes sent to subdue troublemakers or to punish those who offend the gods. Their missions rarely involve the outright killing of living wrongdoers – in most cases their targets are subdued and taken to face judgment by either mortal judges or in extreme situations by the gods themselves. Though they are often tasked with capturing wrongdoers and bringing them to justice, the niutomi’s next most important mission is the subdual or outright destruction of the undead, whom the gods of law consider to be abominations and an offense to the proper order of nature.
