Special Traits

  • Harrying Shield. While the praetorian has a shield equipped, the area within 5 feet of it is considered difficult terrain.
  • Indomitable (1/Day). The praetorian can reroll a failed save. It must use the new roll.


  • Multiattack. The praetorian can use its Dreadful Glare and makes two attacks with its Cursed Khopesh.
  • Cursed Khopesh. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) slashing damage, plus 7 (2d6) necrotic damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw, or be cursed with mummy rot (p.86).
  • Dreadful Glare. The praetorian targets one creature it can see within 60 feet of it. If the target can see the praetorian, it must succeed on a DC 11 Wisdom saving throw against this magic, or become frightened until the end of the praetorian¬ís 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 of all mummies with a challenge rating of 5 or less for the next 24 hours.
