Special Traits

  • Eye Beams. When a blindheim’s eyes are open, it emits a 30- foot cone of light. It can see normally in this light and functions normally in areas of magical darkness. A creature looking at a blindheim when its eye beams are “on” must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or be blinded for 1 hour. A blinded creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success.

Actions

  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) piercing damage.

About

This creature is a 4-foot-tall frog-like humanoid with large, bulbous eyes that constantly emit bright yellow beams of light. Its skin is mottled yellow, growing darker across its back. Its feet are webbed as are its claws.

Blindheims dwell in underground caverns and sustain themselves on a diet of funguses, molds, and small rodents. An extra eyelid allows the blindheim to “turn off” its eyes when it is sleeping or resting. A dead blindheim’s eyes are dull gold in color.

Blindheims are 4 feet tall and weigh about 150 pounds.

A blindheim attacks by first blinding a foe with its gaze and then rushing in to use its bite attack. It can turn its eyes on and off as it wishes but always leaves them on during combat. If overmatched, a blindheim flees.
