Special Traits

Actions

  • Kick. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d8 + 2) bludgeoning damage and the target must make a DC 12 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Spit. One creature within 30 ft. of the sage camel must succeed at a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw or become blinded for 1 minute. A blinded creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Tactics

Sage Camels are often accompanied by those that seek their wisdom. If battle breaks out, they will use protection from evil and good and sleep to support their acolytes and then use fire bolt or their spit attack against the remaining foes. If confronted directly, a sage camel often will kick an opponent and then use their superior speed to move away for a spit attack.

Description

Sage Camels resemble ordinary camels except that they are taller and have a deep intelligence in their eyes and an expression of peaceful wisdom on their faces. They wear light colored, loose cloth coverings over their heads and bodies.

Student of the Stars. Each friendly creature spending a long rest as the welcome guest of a sage camel can benefit from its reading of the stars. Each creature rolls a d20. One time in the next month, the creature can use the result in place of any ability check, attack roll or saving throw. The stars are slow to change and a creature cannot benefit from this feature more than once a month.

Wisdom of the Desert. Sage camels do not get lost in the desert and are immune to illusions.

Teachers and Prophets. Sage camels enjoy reclining in their huge, plush desert tents and endlessly conversing with guests, especially travelers from afar. They are often accompanied by other creatures that offer their services in return for knowledge. Sage camels speak many languages and are renowned for their ability to deliver prophecies by reading the stars.
