Special Traits


  • Dagger. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 3) piercing damage.
  • Quarterstaff. Melee Weapon Attack: +1 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 2 (1d6 – 1) bludgeoning damage or 3 (1d8 – 1) bludgeoning damage if used with two hands.
  • Darken. The ratfolk warlock causes tendrils of shadow to reach out from its body toward all creatures within 10 feet of it. Each creature in the area must succeed on a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw or be restrained by the tendrils until the end of the ratfolk warlock’s next turn.


With filthy tunics and well-kept leathers, ratfolk slink through fights, always looking to flank, turn, or strike from behind. Their ability to work in large groups leads dwarves to despise them as a “lowly swarm of guttersnipes”-but they are effective.
