Special Traits

  • Mobile Seeds. When the plant goblin dies, it explodes in a burst of vegetation, sap, and thorns. Each creature within 5 feet of it must make a DC 11 Dexterity saving throw, taking 5 (2d4) piercing damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If in a location of ample soil and not burned, the remains meld into the soil within 24 hours and enrich the plant life within 30 feet for 1 month. The plants yield twice the normal amount of food when harvested.
  • Pack Tactics. The plant goblin has advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one of the goblin’s allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn’t incapacitated.
