SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Innate Spellcasting. The lieweaver’s innate spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 17, +9 to hit with spells). The lieweaver can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Memory Sense. Verivores make an opposed Perception check against an Intelligence saving throw to view any memories (last 24 hours) for any target in visual range.
  • Orbs of Verity. Verivores generate one Orb of Verity, from the tendrils of their cranial cavity for each use of their psychic theft ability.
  • Spellcasting. Varies.

ACTIONS

  • Arcanovore. Lieweavers with at least one Orb of Verity containing the stolen identity of a spellcaster may cast one of the creature’s cantrips at will. If it has three Orbs of Verity it gains all spellcasting ability of the lowest level caster. Regardless of the original type, these spells become arcane.
  • Distortion Shear (Recharge 4-6). As faithkeeper, DC 17.
  • Psychic Theft – Identity. As an action on its turn, the lieweaver can attempt to steal a character’s archetype (removing all benefits gained from it) and place it within an Orb of Verity. If it has already stolen an archetype, it may take the creature’s alignment, feats, or background. The Intelligence save to resist this ability is DC 17.
  • Tapestry of Lies. As a bonus action, the lieweaver can replace the identity of a character whose identity it has stolen. They may replace any stolen attribute. This may confuse, torment, or otherwise cause the character to question their current allegiances and motives. The Intelligence save to resist this ability is DC 17.
