Special Traits

  • Forest Camouflage. While it is in forest terrain and remains motionless, a witch totem is invisible.
  • Regeneration. The witch totem regains 1 hit point at the start of its turn. If the totem takes acid or fire damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of its next turn. The witch totem is destroyed only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and doesn’t regenerate.
  • Traceless Passage. The witch totem can’t be tracked except by magical means. It leaves behind no tracks or other traces of its passage.


  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (1d3 + 1) slashing damage.
  • Dart. Ranged Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, range 10/30 ft., one target. Hit: 1 piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) poison damage.


A witch totem is a tiny, doll-like thing constructed from carved wood and fibrous bundles of twigs, leaves, grass, and other natural materials. It stands not much more than a foot high and bears a rune etched upon its forehead. Witches’ totems rarely initiate combat unless specifically commanded to do so. Instead, they usually remain hidden and then report enemies and interlopers back to their masters.

Witches’ totems are created by high gorgons. While of generally flimsy construction, the totems can be dangerous opponents. They are virtually invisible in the forest because they are made from its natural elements, and they can easily bypass guard dogs and other beasts. Once close to an enemy, a totem can unleash a nauseating dart attack.

If forced or commanded to fight, a totem favors using darts. It uses its tiny claws only as a last resort, preferring instead to flee from enemies, sometimes escaping up into trees or other vegetation.
