  • Innate Spellcasting. The ratatosk’s spellcasting attribute is Charisma (save DC 14). It can innately cast the following spells without requiring material or somatic components.
  • Invocations. The ratatosk warlock knows the following warlock invocations: agonizing blast, armor of shadows, mask of many faces, misty visions, and one with shadows.
  • Skitter. The ratatosk can take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action as a bonus action on each of their turns.
  • Spellcasting. The ratatosk warlock is an 11th-level spellcaster. Their spellcasting attribute is Charisma (spell save DC 16, +8 to hit with spell attacks). They have two 5th-level spell slots, which they regain after finishing a short or long rest, and know the following warlock spells.


  • Gore. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 piercing damage plus 14 (4d6) psychic damage, and the target must make a successful DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or be charmed for 1 round. While charmed in this way, the creature regards one randomly determined ally as a foe.
  • Yggdrasil’s Wrath (Recharge 5–6). Up to six creatures within 60 feet that the ratatosk warlock can see must make DC 16 Dexterity saving throws as spear-like tree roots explode out of the ground beneath them. On a failure, the creature takes 28 (8d6) piercing damage and is restrained. On a success, the creature takes half as much damage and is not restrained. A restrained creature can use its action to make a DC 16 Strength check to free itself or another creature restrained by the roots.


Many ratatosk believe Yggdrasil possesses a spirit, or a living energy, and worship it as a deity in its own right. Some, however, take this adoration further, fusing their souls to the World Tree with a binding pact. These fanatical squirrel-folk defend Yggdrasil from all threats, both actual and perceived.
