SPECIAL TRAITS

  • 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.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The trutheater’s innate spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 15). The trutheater can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

ACTIONS

  • Arcanovore. Trutheaters with at least one Orb of Verity containing the stolen truth of a spellcaster may cast one of that creature’s cantrips at will.
  • Distortion Blast (Recharge 5-6). Trutheaters with at least 2 Orbs of Verity can emit a violent distortion of reality as a 30’ line dealing 4d6 +4 damage against a Wisdom save DC 15 for half damage. For every 2 additional Orbs of Verity they deal +1d6.
  • Psychic Theft – Truth. As an action on its turn, the thrutheater can attempt to steal a character’s background (causing them to lose all proficiencies gained from it) and place it within an Orb of Verity. The Intelligence save to resist this ability is DC 15.
  • Weave Delusion. As an action, the trutheater can replace a stolen background (granting new proficiencies). The new background may confuse, torment, or otherwise cause the character to question their current allegiances and motives. The Intelligence save to resist this ability is DC 15.

ABOUT

These aberrant drones stand on writhing masses of tails, wrapped in their iridescent wings like a mockery of a fine cloak. The clutches of its grasping cranial cavity swim with stolen lives.
