SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Command Beast As a bonus action, the beast master causes one animal or monstrosity of 8 Hit Dice or lower within 15 ft. to make an immediate attack.
  • Poison Use Phoori tribesmen prefer poisons that hamper a victim’s ability to move, such as wasp venom. When hit by a weapon coated in wasp venom, the victim must succeed on a Con save (DC 14) or take 2d6 poison damage and have his or her speed reduced by 5 ft. for one minute. Additional doses have a cumulative effect on a victim’s speed.

ACTIONS

  • Spear. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1d8+2 piercing damage and poison.
  • Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, ranged 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 1d8+3 piercing damage and poison.

REACTIONS

  • Heeded Warning The severed heads that Phoori tribesmen carry as trophies sometimes whisper glimpses of the future. When the Phoori tribesman would take damage from any source, he can heed a warning as a combat reaction and take only half damage from that source. Once he has used this ability, he cannot use it again for 1 day or until he reduces a creature to 0 hit points.

ABOUT

This human savage wears light armor and carries a spear, but most notable are the severed heads that stare vacantly from where they are tied at his belt, silent proof of his fighting prowess.

The beastmaster subjugates some of the less dangerous predators of the swamps, such as crocodiles, dire boars, or even panthers, and trains them to help flush out prey. In return, the beasts get a full meal… minus the head, of course.
