  • Plant Speech. avocados
  • Plant Form. Medium sized tree in a trenchcoat
  • Precarious Stack Upon suffering a critical strike, or being reduced to half hit points, Three leshy in a Trenchcoat split into three individual Avocado Leshies, each at half hit points. Any creature that previously failed their Blend In check are stunned until the end of their next turn.
  • Blend In Any creature observing Three leshy in a Trenchcoat for the first time must attempt a Wisdom (Perception) check (DC 15). On a success, they become aware of the three leshies within the coat; on a failure, they become convinced they are seeing a regular, Medium humanoid.
  • Split Up! As an action, the three leshy within the trenchcoat may voluntarily separate as in Precarious Stack.


  • Multiattack. The Three leshy in a Trenchcoat attacks three times as an action, using either its Broom Handle twice and Regular-Sized Fist once or its Business Card attack three times.
  • Regular-Sized Fist. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6+3) bludgeoning damage.
  • Broom Handle. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d8+3) bludgeoning damage.
  • Business Card. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, range 30/120 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (2d6+2) slashing damage.


  • Business Card. The leshy makes it Business Card attack.
  • Declare Bankruptcy (Costs 2 Actions). The leshy flourishes its trenchcoat and speaks some business jargon. Any creature within 15 feet of the leshy must hand over 15 gold. If unable or unwilling to do so, the creature makes a DC 15 Wis. saving throw, taking 16 (3d10) psychic damage on a failure and half as much on a success.
  • Do a Business (Costs 3 Actions). The leshy uses Split Up! The resulting leshies then make a melee attack against an enemy within range.


Any leshy variant can decide it needs to stack up and put on a coat. To create your own, up the level of the Three-in-a-coat to the base leshy level plus 3. This will keep the split apart three leshies a similar threat balance as the combined leshy. Match the stats to the new level, reflavor the spells and attacks to match the base creature, and add an ability or two at higher levels and you are all set!

A regular human businessman going about regular human business. Nothing to see here, please ignore the broom handles and green skin. But if you could direct us – I mean me – to the nearest alcohol establishment, it would be most appreciated my fellow human.
