  • Cheek Pouches. The rockster can store and carry tiny objects, such as gemstones, up to its carrying capacity in its cheek pouches.
  • Earth Glide. The rockster can burrow through nonmagical, unworked earth and stone. While doing so, the rockster doesn’t disturb the material it moves through.
  • Gemstone Snack. The rockster regains all its hit points if it spends 1 minute eating gems worth at least 100 gp. The gems are destroyed in the process.
  • Siege Critter. The rockster deals double damage to objects and structures.


  • Diamond Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (4d4 + 1) piercing damage. This attack scores a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20, and if the rockster scores a critical hit, it rolls the damage dice three times, instead of twice.


Native to terran dimensions and gemstone caverns, rocksters are tiny amiable elemanimals with a surprisingly powerful bite and a taste for glittering gems.

Rocksters are exceptional burrowers, and their innate magic allows them to burrow through stone without leaving any holes. However, if a rockster wishes to, it can wreak havoc upon objects and structures with its diamond teeth that are strong enough to cut through any nonmagical material.

In combat situations, a rockster will try to burrow beneath its enemies and come up under their feet to deliver a diamond bite when least expected. If wounded, a rockster can restore its health by nibbling on a gem, and many rocksters hoard precious stones for that reason.

Pact of the Chain Familiar. At the gamemaster’s discretion, a warlock with a pact of the chain may choose the form of a rockster for their familiar.
