Special Traits

  • Action Surge (1/short Rest). On his turn, Robin Hood can take an additional action on top of his regular action and a possible bonus action.
  • Attentive Gaze. Robin Hood can use a bonus action to take the Search action.
  • Cunning Action (1/turn). Robin Hood can use a bonus action to take the Dash, Disengage, Hide, Use Object action, Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check, or to use thieves’ tools to disarm a trap or open a lock.
  • Excellent Aim (3/short Rest). Robin Hood can spend a bonus action to aim a wielded ranged weapon at a target within its range. Until the end of his turn, ranged attacks that Robin Hood makes against the target deal an extra 5 damage.
  • Second-Story Work. Climbing does not cost Robin Hood extra movement. When he makes a running jump, the distance he covers increases by 4 feet.
  • Second Wind (1/short Rest). On his turn, Robin Hood can use a bonus action to regain 1d10+7 hit points.
  • Sneak Attack (1/turn). Robin Hood deals an extra 10 (3d6) damage when he hits a target with a weapon attack and has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 5 feet of an ally of Robin Hood that isn’t incapacitated and Robin Hood doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.
  • Stealther. Robin Hood can attempt to hide even when he is only lightly obscured from a creature he’s trying to hide from. In addition, Robin Hood’s position isn’t revealed when he misses with a ranged weapon attack against a creature he’s hidden from, and he does not have disadvantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks in dim light.
  • Superb Aim. Robin Hood ignores half cover and three-quarters cover when making a ranged weapon attack, and he doesn’t have disadvantage when attacking at long range. When Robin Hood makes his first ranged weapon attack in a turn, he can choose to take a –5 penalty to his ranged weapon attack rolls in exchange for a +10 bonus to ranged weapon damage.

About

Robin Hood was the Earl of Huntingdon, ridiculously good with a bow, and quite clever—pretty much every story about him involved tricking somebody. Outlawed by the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, he took up residence in Sherwood Forest, where he gathered a band of Merry Men and took to robbing the rich to give to the poor.

Robin Hood is always able to rely on the hospitality of commoners to help him hide or rest provided he poses no danger in doing so, going so far as to shield him from being discovered (though not at the cost of their lives).

Along the way, Robin competed for—and won—the Silver Arrow in an archery tournament, harried and fought the Sheriff and his henchman Sir Guy of Gisborne, robbed corrupt bishops and greedy clergymen, romanced Maid Marian, and resisted the Normans at every turn, until he was betrayed by the prioress of Kirklees Priory when he sought medical aid. Legend has it that he was buried at the landing place of his final arrow, shot with his dying breaths.

Robin’s plucky band of Merry Men is equally famous—the mighty Little John, the jovial monk
