Special Traits

  • Blood Frenzy. The coffer corpse has advantage on melee attack rolls against any creature that doesn’t have all its hit points.
  • Sense Blood. The coffer corpse can pinpoint, by scent, the location of creatures with blood within 60 feet of it.
  • Undead Nature. A coffer corpse doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The coffer corpse makes two attacks, only one of which can be a Bite attack.
  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 12). A coffer corpse can have only one creature grappled at a time.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one willing creature, or a creature that is grappled by the coffer corpse, incapacitated, or restrained. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage plus 2 (1d4) necrotic damage. The target’s hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the necrotic damage taken. The reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0.
