Special Traits

  • False Appearance. The pond of reflection is indistinguishable from a normal pond.
  • Magic Resistance. The pond of reflection has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.


  • Entrancing Reflection. Anyone looking into the pond sees the most beautiful version of themselves. First the viewer must make a successful DC 13 Wisdom saving throw. If they fail, watery hands reach up and pull the target into the pond. The victim must then make a successful DC 13 Strength check. A successful Strength save enables the target to pull itself out of the pond. If they fail, the target takes 3 (1d6) bludgeoning damage and lose two levels of exhaustion as they begin to be drowned. They continue to lose a level of exhaustion each turn if they can’t get out of the pond. The target or another creature can make a DC 13 Strength check to get out, or help to get out.


The pond of reflection is a malevolent fey which tries to lure victims with their own vanity. This monster lies in wait for a creature with a large ego.

Surprising Strength. These fey are quite strong and can drown unsuspecting victims.

Don’t Dwell. The inhabitants of Feyland know better than to look at their reflections too long. All the young are taught this lesson at a very early age. If slain, a pond of reflection becomes an inanimate pool of water.
