  • Keen Hearing and Smell. The scythe horn has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.
  • Charge. If the scythe horn moves at least 20 ft. straight toward a target and then hits it with a scythe horn attack on the same turn, the target takes an extra 9 (2d6) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.


  • Scythe Horn. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6+3) piercing damage.


This large stag-like creature is the size of a large horse. A pair of jagged and terrible-looking antlers crown its brow. They look like they could slice a person in half.

Scythe horns are very large herd animals that live primarily in moderate to cold climates.
