Special Traits

  • Magic Resistance. The draconic amalgam has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects. This trait doesn’t apply to magic from yothans.
  • Yothan Control. Magic that isn’t cast by a yothan can’t control a draconic amalgam’s actions.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The amalgam makes two attacks: one with a stinger pair and one with its bite.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d6 + 6) piercing damage.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature grappled by the amalgam. Hit 42 (8d8 + 6) slashing damage and the target is restrained until the grapple ends.
  • Stinger Pair. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (4d6 + 6) piercing damage and the target must make a DC 17 Constitution saving throw; it takes 24 (7d6) poison damage on a failure, or half as much damage on a success. If the target is Medium or smaller, it is grappled (escape DC 16). Until this grapple ends, the amalagam can’t attack with that pair of stingers and at the start of the amalgam’s turn, the grappled creature must make a DC 17 Constitution saving throw, taking 49 (14d6) poison damage on a failure, or half as much damage on a success. The amalgam has three pairs of stingers, each of which can grapple one target.

About

The draconic amalgam, which incorporates components from numerous dragons to create something even more fearsome, is an example of their most ambitious work. A draconic amalgam is a flying horror with a dozen sets of wings and dangling, stinging tails.
