Special Traits


  • Multiattack. The elder tree makes five root attacks.
  • Roots. Melee Weapon Attack: +18 to hit, reach 20 ft., one target. Hit: 28 (4d10 + 6) bludgeoning damage.
  • Summon Treants (1/day). The elder tree can summon 1d4 treants, appearing in unoccupied spaces within 60 feet of him.
  • Entangling Plants (Recharge 5-6). Grasping roots and vines sprout in a 60-foot radius centered on the elder tree, withering away after 10 minutes. For the duration, that area is difficult terrain for nonplant creatures. In addition, any creature the elder tree chooses in the area must succeed on a DC 24 Strength save or become restrained. A creature can use its action to make a DC 24 Strength check, freeing itself or another entangled creature within reach on a success.


This powerful being is positioned in between the dark and light sides of the fey world. He is connected to everything and everyone.

Deep Roots. Ultimately, the Elder Tree will protect nature above any other concerns. He can sense dangers and will intervene whenever nature is threatened.

At the Center. The elder tree sees the big picture and doesn’t usually take sides with either the Seelie or Unseelie courts.
