Wondrous Bestiary

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement)

This magic book contains descriptions of a seemingly infinite assortment of creatures. You can reference the book whenever you make an Intelligence check to recall information about a type or subtype of creature (such as an Elf, a Dragon, or a Zombie). When you do so, double your proficiency bonus on that check.

Instant Recollection. The book has 3 charges and regains all expended charges daily at dawn. As a bonus action, you can speak its command word to magically recall information about a creature you can see within 30 feet. Choose one of the following pieces of information to learn:

  • The creature’s AC, maximum hit points, and speed.
  • The creature’s Ability Scores and Saving Throw proficiencies.
  • The creature’s Damage Vulnerabilities, Damage Resistances, Damage Immunities, and Condition Immunities, if it has any.
  • Which actions the creature has, though not the exact details of those actions.
  • Any special qualities and defenses, such as Legendary Resistance or Magic Resistance.

If the creature has statistics beyond what is typical for its race, type, or subtype (such as a Goblin with special actions and additional hit points), you may not able to learn these unique statistics, at the GM’s discretion.
