Special Traits

  • Quiet of the Grave. While in areas of dim light or darkness, the assassin can take the Hide action as a bonus action.
  • Sneak Attack (1/Turn). The assassin deals an extra 21 (6d6) damage when it hits a target with a weapon attack, and has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 5 feet of an ally of the assassin that isn’t incapacitated, and the assassin doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.


  • Multiattack. The assassin can use its Dreadful Glare and makes one attack with its Cursed Knife. If it has two knives drawn, as a bonus action, the assassin can make an additional attack with the second Cursed Knife.
  • Cursed Knife. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage, plus 7 (2d6) necrotic damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw, or be cursed with mummy rot (p.86).
  • Dreadful Glare. The assassin targets one creature it can see within 60 feet of it. If the target can see the assassin, it must succeed on a DC 12 Wisdom saving throw against this magic, or become frightened until the end of the assassin¬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.
