Special Traits

  • Charge. If the gullinhest moves at least 20 ft. straight toward a target and then hits it with a tusk attack on the same turn, the target takes an extra 7 (2d6) slashing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Illumination. The gullinhest sheds bright light in a 10-foot radius and dim light for an additional 10 feet.
  • Might of the Master. The following numbers increase by 1 when your proficiency bonus increases by 1: the gullinehst’s skill and saving throw bonuses (above) and the bonuses to hit and damage of its tusk attack, and the number of hit points restored by its Repair action (below).
  • Relentless (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). If the gullinhest takes 10 damage or less that would reduce it to 0 hit points, it is reduced to 1 hit point instead.

Actions

The following actions require use of your Bonus Action.

  • Tusk. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: (2d6 + 3) slashing damage.
  • Repair (3/Day). The magical mechanisms inside the gullinhest restore 2d8+2 hit points to itself or to one construct or object within 5 feet of it.

About

Gullinhests are gold mounts forged by dwarves. They are often given to heroes, but it is not unheard of for dwarves themselves to ride them in combat.

Mounts and Steeds. The best known gullinehsts are Gullinbursti, the golden boars in service to Frey. There are other golden mounts with their own names. Freyja has Hildisvini and there is also Slidrugtanni. All are golden constructs made to serve their masters.
