  • Spectral Howdah. A rakshasa ambari is surrounded by the ghostly vestiges of long-dead warriors that once fought alongside it and mounted upon it. As a result, any creatures that are not adjacent to the rakshasa ambari have disadvantage on melee and ranged weapon attacks against the rakshasa ambari.


  • Multiattack. The rakshasa ambari makes one gore attack and two stomp attacks.
  • Gore. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, 1reach 5 ft., one Large target or two adjacent Medium or smaller targets. Hit: 18 (2d10 + 7) piercing damage.
  • Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d10 + 7) bludgeoning damage If the target is a creature, it must succeed a DC 16 Strength saving throw or be forced prone.
  • Terrifying Trumpet (5-6). All living creatures within 60 feet of the rakshasa ambari must succeed a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw or take 13 (3d8) psychic damage and become frightened. A frightened creature can attempt another saving throw at the end of each of their turns in order to end this condition.


Horrors born from the depths of endless jungles, the ambari are undead elephants granted terrible powers through necromantic rites of the wicked rakshasa. Massive and terrifying, many of these earth-shaking undead behemoths retain the exotic trappings and elegant finery of the princes who once doted upon them. The glory of such beasts is long forgotten, though, as most serve as unholy slaves and fearless beasts of war for uncaring necromancers who have learned the secrets of their creation or directly under the rod of the immortal rakshasa rajahs.
