  • Wood Bane. The gadgol swarm deals double damage to plant creatures and objects and structures made of wood.
  • Swarm. The swarm can occupy another creature’s space and vice versa, and the swarm can move through any opening large enough for a Tiny gadgol. The swarm can’t regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.


  • Bites. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 0 ft., one target in the swarm’s space. Hit: 10 (4d4) piercing damage, or 5 (2d4) piercing damage if the swarm has half of its hit points or fewer. The target must make a DC 10 Constitution saving throw, taking 14 (4d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


This wicked-looking mosquito is the size of your hand and has a feral intelligence in its eyes.

Gadgols are evil creatures that delight in flying against the tree trunks in the Forest of Burzee. Their poisonous contact wounds the trees so that they droop and die. They are loathed by wood nymphs, who destroy them every chance they get.
