  • Void Adaptation. The voidopus doesn’t require air, food, or drink.


  • Tiny Tentacles. Melee Weapon Attack: +0 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 bludgeoning damage.
  • Mind Whisper. The voidopus magically emits psychic energy at a creature it can see within 60 feet of it. That creature must succeed on a DC 15 Intelligence saving throw or take 7 (2d6) psychic damage and subtract 1d4 from the next saving throw it makes before the end of the voidopus’ next turn.
  • Shadowink Cloud (Recharge 5-6). A 5-foot-radius cloud of magical darkness extends all around the voidopus. The darkness spreads around corners and lasts until the start of the voidopus’ next turn. A creature with darkvision can’t see through this darkness, and nonmagical light can’t illuminate it. After releasing a shadowink cloud, the voidopus can use the Dash action as a bonus action.


Mysterious and literally otherworldly, voidopuses (also known as voidopi) are tiny creatures of eldritch magic and dark cuteness. Native to the unimaginable emptiness between the stars, these unusual critters can live comfortably in almost any environment. Their unusual nature allows voidopuses to take millennia-long naps and live in their dreams while floating from star to star. However, the void can become dull and monotonous after a few millennia, and many voidopuses will leave it to discover and visit new worlds full of color and wondrous creatures. While their bodies do not age like a mortal creature’s and they don’t require air, food, or drink, voidopuses are physically weak and diminutive, so they have to rely on their eldritch powers for protection. All voidopuses possess powerful telepathy and the ability to produce magical ink of unimaginable darkness. When threatened, they will not hesitate to use their mental powers to weaken and confuse the minds of aggressors and expel magical darkness to escape to safety.

Pact of the Chain Familiar. At the gamemaster’s discretion, a warlock with a pact of the chain may choose the form of a voidopus for their familiar.
