Special Traits

  • Distraction. Any living creature that begins its turn with the swarm in its space must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution save or be frightened for 1 round.
  • Swarm. The swarm can occupy one or more other creatures’ spaces and vice versa, and the swarm can move through an opening large enough for a Tiny eye spider. The swarm can’t regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.

Actions

  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 0 ft., one creature in the swarm’s space. Hit: 5 (1d8 + 1) bludgeoning damage or 3 (1d8 – 1) bludgeoning damage if the swarm has half of its hit points or fewer.

Bonus Actions

  • Mind Ruin. The swarm flashes and pulsates. Any creature caught within its space when it does so has its mind suddenly filled with thousands of tangled visual images composed of text, passages, and secrets that the eyes of the swarm have seen over the centuries. The creature must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or be confused, as if by a confusion spell. If the target fails three consecutive saving throws, the condition is permanent until cured by a greater restoration or other magic.
