Special Traits

Actions

  • Multiattack. The blood orchid uses Blood Drain. It then makes up to three attacks with its tentacles.
  • Tentacles. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (3d8 + 5) bludgeoning damage and the target must succeed on a DC 16 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 hour. The target is also grappled (escape DC 15). While grappled this way, the creature is restrained. Until the grapple ends, 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 16 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.
