Special Traits

    • Innate Spellcasting. The grig’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC12, +4 to hit with spell attacks). It can cast the following spells innately, without requiring material components.
      • At will: druidcraft
      • 3/day each: disguise self, entangle, invisibility
      • Surprise Attack. If the grig surprises a creature and hits it with an attack during the first round of combat, the target takes an extra 10 (3d6) damage from the attack.

Actions

      • Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) piercing damage.
      • Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) piercing damage.
      • Fiddle (Recharge 5-6). The grig begins playing with its legs in a lively tune. Creatures within 30 feet that can hear the grig must make a DC13 Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, the creature is charmed for 1 minute. While charmed by the grig, it uses its action to dance in place, capering comically. The creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success. If the saving throw is successful, or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to that grig’s Fiddle ability for 24 hours.
