Special Traits

  • Daylight Sensitivity. When exposed to light equal to sunlight or a daylight spell, the warlock has disadvantage on attack rolls, saving throws, and Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight. At the beginning of its turn, while the warlock is exposed to sunlight or a daylight spell, it takes 49 (11d8) radiant damage.
  • Incorporeal Movement. The warlock can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.
  • Shadow Stealth. While in dim light or darkness, the warlock can take the Hide action as a bonus action.

Actions

  • Bestow Curse. Ranged Spell Attack: Range 90 ft., all targets in 20-ft. burst area. Effect: Targets must succeed on a DC 17 Charisma saving throw or have their mind and soul swapped with another affected target, as though by a magic jar spell. This effect persists until dispelled with a remove curse spell or until the whispering warlock is slain.
  • Life Drain. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 21 (4d8+3) necrotic damage. The target must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or its hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the target finished a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduced its hit points maximum to 0.
