Actions

  • Multiattack. The dire owl makes two talon attacks when flying.
  • Pellet Vomit (1/Day). Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft.; one target. Hit: 2 (1d4) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a living creature, it must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or become poisoned until the creature completes a long rest. While the creature is poisoned, all creatures (other than the dire owl) that are within 5 feet of the poisoned creature must succeed on the same saving throw or become poisoned as long as they stay so close to the creature. Creatures with the scent ability gain disadvantage on this saving throw.
  • Talon. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft.; one target. Hit: 5 (2d4) piercing damage.
  • Screech. An owl can let out a loud screech. All creatures within 10 feet that fail a DC 12 Constitution save are deafened until the end of the dire owl’s next turn.
