Special Traits

  • Pack Tactics. The brigand leader has advantage on attack rolls against a creature if at least one of the brigand leader’s allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn’t incapacitated.

Actions

  • Multiattack. A brigand leader makes three melee attacks: two with its rapier and one with its dagger.
  • Rapier. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) piercing damage.
  • Dagger. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage.
