Special Traits

  • Immutable Form. The chaos wurm is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The chaos wurm’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 20, +12 to hit with spell attacks). The chaos wurm can innately cast the following spell, requiring no material components:
  • Magic Resistance. The chaos wurm has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The chaos wurm’s weapon attacks are magical.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The chaos wurm makes four attacks: one with its bite, two with its claws, and one with its tail.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 23 (4d6 + 9) piercing damage.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d8 + 9) slashing damage.
  • Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 25 (3d10 + 9) bludgeoning damage.
  • Swirling Chaos (Recharge 5-6). The chaos wurm unleashes a wave of swirling chaos in a 60-foot cone that tears at reality, causing its victims blinding pain. Each creature in that area takes 45 (10d8) psychic damage, or half damage with a successful DC 18 Wisdom saving throw. Targets that fail this saving throw must also succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or be blinded for 1d4 rounds.
  • Teleport. The chaos wurm magically teleports, along with any equipment it is wearing or carrying, up to 120 feet to an unoccupied space it can see.
