Special Qualities

  • Immutable Form. The inevitable is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.
  • Magic Resistance. The inevitable has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapon. The inevitable’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Malfunction. When the inevitable starts its turn with 50 HP or fewer, roll a d6. On a 6, the inevitable malfunctions and becomes incapacitated until repaired. If the inevitable’s creator is adjacent, they can spend their action to repair the inevitable and remove the incapacitated condition.
  • Soul Crystal Vulnerability. The inevitable’s soul crystal-the source of its power-is set in a loose socket and partially exposed. On a critical hit, an attacker can choose to deal no damage but instead loosen the crystal. This acts as a roll of 6 on the inevitable’s Malfunction feature.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The inevitable makes three slam attacks.
  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one creature. Hit: 15 (2d10+4) bludgeoning damage.

About

On Vold worlds, these constructs are a common sight. Powered by eldritch energy and given a modicum of intelligence by way of a soul stone mounted within its clockwork core, inevitables do the heavy lifting and often much of the fighting in Vold society. This inevitable is a patchwork creature, cobbled together from stray parts. Lacking the grace and intelligence of a true inevitable, this creature nonetheless packs a punch and serves as guard and tough for its creator.
