Special Traits


  • Multiattack. The blood orchid uses Blood Drain and makes up to three attacks with its tentacles.
  • Tentacles. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d8 + 2) bludgeoning damage and the target must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 hour. The target is also grappled (escape DC 12). Until this grapple ends the creature is restrained, and the blood orchid can’t use this tentacle on another target. The blood orchid has three tentacles that it can attack with.
  • Blood Drain. The blood orchid feeds on the creature it is grappling. The creature must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or its hit point maximum is reduced by 5 (1d10). This reduction lasts until the creature finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0.
