Special Traits

  • Gliding Wings. The tosculi drone can use its wings to slowly descend when falling (as if under the effect of the feather fall spell). It can move up to 5 feet horizontally for every foot it falls. The tosculi drone can’t gain height with these wings alone. If subjected to a strong wind or lift of any kind, it can use the updraft to glide farther.
  • Skittering. Up to two tosculi can share the same space at one time. The tosculi has advantage on melee attack rolls while sharing its space with another tosculi that isn’t incapacitated.


  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (2d4 + 3) slashing damage.
  • Light Crossbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, range 80/320 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage.


This humanoid wasp’s gossamer wings beat out a soft, droning buzz. Flashing blades sing in each of her four clawed hands, and the air around her crackles with arcane energy.
