  • Build. The wasp can build a hexagonal paper room in one hour. Each side of the hexagon is 5 feet long, 10 feet tall, 6 inches thick, and flammable. The wasp can create only five of these hexagons in a day, and can attach the room to any solid surface, preferring trees, cliffsides, buildings, or caves.
  • Summon Swarm (1/day). The wasp exhales a swarm of insects (wasps) that fill a space. The swarm acts as an ally of the paper wasp and the owner of the figurine of wondrous power, taking its turn immediately after the paper wasp. The swarm disperses after 24 hours.


  • Sting. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) piercing damage, and the target must make a DC 12 Constitution saving throw, taking 13 (3d8) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If the poison damage reduces the target to 0 hit points, the target is stable but poisoned for 1 hour, even after regaining hit points, and is paralyzed while poisoned this way.
