Special Traits

  • Swarm Tactics. The formian has advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one other formian ally is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally is not incapacitated. If a formian makes an attack with advantage and hits, the target must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Surefooted. The formian has advantage on saving throws versus being knocked prone.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The formian makes one Bite attack, one Claw attack, and one Sting attack, or it makes two Javelin attacks.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) slashing damage.
