SPECIAL TRAITS

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The shoki attacks twice with its quarterstaff.
  • Quarterstaff. Melee Weapon Attack: +13 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (1d6 + 8) bludegoning damage and 13 (3d8) necrotic damage or 12 (1d8+8) bludgeoning damage and 13 (3d8) necrotic damage if used with two hands.

REACTIONS

  • Soul Lock. The shoki attempts to trap a creature’s soul when its hit points are reduced to 0. That creature must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw Creatures that fails dies and has its soul trapped in the shoki’s staff. This ability can even affect incorporeal creatures. A trapped soul cannot be brought to life through any magic short of a divine intervention, true resurrection, or wish. The shoki can use its turn to free a trapped spirit. A banishment or dispel evil and good spell cast directly upon the staff can also free a soul. Finally, destroying the staff will also free the soul trapped within. The staff can only contain one soul.
