SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Grabbing Arm. The giant can use a bonus action to make a Strength (Athletics) check against one creature within 15 feet, grappling it on a success (escape DC 25).
  • Legendary Resistance (3/Day). If the giant fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.
  • Magic Resistance. The giant has advantage on saving throws made against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The giant’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Third Arm. The giant has advantage on Strength (Athletics) checks.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The giant can use its Frightful Presence. It then attacks twice.
  • Axe. Melee Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 46 (8d8+10) slashing damage and the target makes a DC 25 Strength saving throw. On a failure, it is either knocked prone or pushed away 20 feet (the giant’s choice).
  • Rock or Tree. Ranged Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 37 (6d8+10) bludgeoning damage and the target makes a DC 25 Dexterity saving throw. On a failure, it is knocked prone and restrained by the tree (escape DC 25).
  • Frightful Presence. Each creature of the giant’s choice that is within 120 feet of it and aware of it must succeed on a DC 18 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the giant’s Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.
  • Twinned Spell. When Xydragis casts a spell that targets only one creature and doesn’t have a range of self, it can spend 3 metamagic points to target a second creature in range with the same spell (no metamagic points are required for a cantrip). To be eligible for Twinned Spell, a spell must be incapable of targeting more than one creature at the spell’s current level.
  • Three Heads. Xydragis has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks and saving throws against being blinded, charmed, deafened, frightened, stunned, or knocked unconscious. In addition, Xydragis is able to concentrate on up to 3 spells at the same time. If it fails a concentration check while concentrating on more than one spell, it loses concentration on all its spells. In addition, while Xydragis is using one or more concentration spells it gains one extra bonus action each turn that can only be used to manipulate those spells.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. Xydragis makes four attacks: one with its bite, two with its claws, and one with its tail. It can use its mindblast instead of a bite or claw.
