Special Traits

  • Assassinate. During its first turn, the Red Scorpion lieutenant has advantage on attack rolls against any creature that hasn’t yet acted in the combat. Any hit the Red Scorpion lieutenant scores against a surprised creature counts as a critical hit.
  • Cunning Action. On each of its turns, the Red Scorpion lieutenant can use a bonus action to take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action.
  • Sneak Attack. Once per turn, the Red Scorpion lieutenant deals an extra 28 (8d6) damage when it 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 the Red Scorpion lieutenant that isn’t incapacitated and the misericorde doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.
  • Sniper. The Red Scorpion lieutenant ignores disadvantage from attacking beyond a weapon’s normal range. In addition, the Red Scorpion lieutenant deals an additional die of damage on a ranged weapon attack (included in the attacks).
