Special Traits

  • Hold Breath. While in water, the otter can hold its breath for 10 minutes.
  • Fey Pelt. The thick, otherworldly coat of the otter grants it advantage on saving throws against magical effects.
  • Insatiable Hunger. The otter must consume ¼ of its body weight in food each day or be overtaken with an insatiable hunger. While in this state, the otter’s damage dice are treated as if they rolled their maximum result, and the otter immediately regains hit points equal to the damage dealt.
  • Shroud. The otter is shrouded by the mist that surrounds it at all times, making it difficult to see. Attacks against the otter are made with disadvantage.
  • Slippery. Whenever the otter is not the target of a spell or attack, it has resistance against the damage.
  • Underwater Camouflage. The otter has advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks made while underwater.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The otter makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its mist tendrils.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d8 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Mist Tendril. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) slashing damage plus 7 (2d6) poison damage.

About

These mist otters are much larger than their river-going kin, and possess a ravenous hunger that must be sated, lest it send them into a bloodthirsty frenzy. When their bellies are full, the misty sea otters enjoy putting on shows and entertaining those lucky, or foolhardy, enough to encounter them.
