Actions

  • Multiattack. The mandrake makes one Bite attack and two Vine attacks.
  • Vine. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d4 + 4) bludgeoning damage, and target must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) poison damage on a failure, or half as much damage on a success.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) piercing damage, and target must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or the target’s Constitution score is reduced by 1d4. The target dies if this reduces its Constitution to 0. Otherwise, the reduction lasts until the target finishes a short or long rest.
  • Shriek (1/day). The mandrake gives voice to an unsettling shriek. All creatures within a 30-foot radius of a shrieking mandrake must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw or become poisoned. A target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.
