D&D 5E 5e Updates: Monstrous Compendium

dave2008

Legend
Project Goals:
  • Provide (slightly) more complex, challenging, and interesting monsters for 5e and LevelUp! (LevelUp website)
  • Create monsters not yet provided by WotC.
  • Create more high-level monsters (for lvl 17+)
  • Provide a single source for monsters great and small that provide a bit more punch than the standard WotC designs.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
1603334201404.png

APPENDIX I: MONSTERS BY CR

APPENDIX II:
NEW TAGS AND CONDITIONS

TAGS:
The new monster tags below are included in the stat block before the creatures size. These tags indicted some changes to how the hit points and experience points of the monster are calculated.

Champion. Champion monsters have maximum hit points (instead of the average) and 1.5 x the experience points of a standard monster of the same CR. When they are bloodied the are renewed and get access to Champion Actions. Champion Actions are new actions the monster can take on its initiative count +10.

Elite. Elite monsters are Legendary monsters that have 2x the hit points and experience points of a standard monster of the same CR. When they are bloodied the are renewed, recharged, and get access to Elite Actions. Elite actions are new legendary actions the monster can use once its Elite Trait has been activated.

CONDITIONS:
Bloodied. When a creature is reduced to half its hit point total (rounded down) for the first time in an encounter it is considered bloodied.
APPENDIX III:
MONSTER TEMPLATES

Inspired by the work of @Imaculata Monster Templates in the LevelUp! forum and @Rhenny's Modify Your Monsters I am planning to create some templates to quickly add a theme to your monsters:
  • Artillery
  • Bruiser
  • Controller
  • Dracolich
  • Leader
  • Lurker
  • Minion
  • Skirmisher
  • Soldier
Monster Themes
Additionally, I found these simplified templates, that @BookTenTiger calls "Tags" very interesting and fun. For the purpose of this thread I will call these "Themes. Each tag provides the creature to which the tag is applied a resistance, a vulnerability, and feature that triggers when the creature is bloodied: Monster Themes

PS - I might start adding these tags to the monsters here as optional traits.
NOTES:

1) Updates? I will continue to update and modify the monsters after they are posted. This is a working document. If you see something that needs improvement - let me know and I fix / modify it.

2) Who made these? Most of these are my creations, but I am also linking to other fan creations in this thread and others. So, if you have an idea for an advanced (leveledUp even) monster, please let me know and I can post it in this thread or I will link to it (if it is on EnWorld somewhere) in the Table of Contents.

3) Will there be a PDF? I plan to make a compiled PDF when I am done, but don't expect that before late 2021!

4) Thank you! Now a quick shout out to @Matrix Sorcica you originally asked for some mythic updates that was the genisis for this thread.

Amphibious. The aboleth can breathe air and water.

Mucous Cloud. While underwater, the aboleth is surrounded by transformative mucus. A creature that touches the aboleth or that hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the creature is diseased for 1d4 hours. The diseased creature can breathe only underwater.

Probing Telepathy. If a creature communicates telepathically with the aboleth, the aboleth learns the creature's greatest desires if the aboleth can see the creature.

Rejuvenating Slime (EliteTrait, recharges after a short or long rest). If the aboleth is bloodied, all conditions and effects it is suffering end for it, it recharges all of its abilities, and it can immediately move up to its speed without provoking opportunity attacks.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. The aboleth makes three melee attacks, but it can only attack once with a bite and its tail. Additionally, a tail attack cannot target a creature that is the target of a bite or tentacle attack in the same turn.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one creature that is charmed or grappled by the aboleth, incapacitated, or restrained. Hit. 14 (2d8 + 5) piercing damage and the target is poisoned. A creature poisoned by the aboleth has disadvantage on Wisdom saving throws from the aboleth's attacks. The creature can make an additional saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself with a success.

Tentacle. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit.12 (2d6 + 5) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or become diseased. The disease has no effect for 1 minute and can be removed by any magic that cures disease. After 1 minute, the diseased creature's skin becomes translucent and slimy, the creature can't regain hit points unless it is underwater, and the disease can be removed only by heal or another disease-curing spell of 6th level or higher. When the creature is outside a body of water, it takes 6 (1d12) acid damage every 10 minutes unless moisture is applied to the skin before 10 minutes have passed. Instead of dealing damage, the aboleth can grapple the target (escape DC 17) and, if it fails a DC 17 Strength saving throw, pull it up to 5 feet.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft. one target. Hit. 15 (3d6 + 5) bludgeoning damage.

Enslave (3/Day). The aboleth targets one creature it can see within 60 feet of it. The target must succeed on a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw or be magically charmed by the aboleth until the aboleth dies or until it is on a different plane of existence from the target. The charmed target is under the aboleth's control and can't take reactions, and the aboleth and the target can communicate telepathically with each other over any distance.
Whenever the charmed target takes damage, the target can repeat the saving throw. On a success, the effect ends. No more than once every 24 hours, the target can also repeat the saving throw when it is at least 1 mile away from the aboleth.

Innate Spellcasting (Psionics). The aboleth's spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 16, +8 to hit with spell attacks). The aboleth can innately cast the following spells, requiring no components:

At will: charm person, command, mage hand, mind thrust,
3/day each: clairvoyance, ego whip, psionic blast
1/day each: confusion, intellect fortress, scrying

LEGENDARY ACTIONS
The aboleth can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. The aboleth regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Detect. The aboleth makes a Wisdom (Perception) check.
Tentacle. The aboleth makes one tentacle attack.
Tail Swipe (Cost 2 Actions). The aboleth makes one tail attack.
Psychic Drain (Costs 2 Actions). One creature charmed by the aboleth takes 10 (3d6) psychic damage, and the aboleth regains hit points equal to the damage the creature takes.

ELITE ACTIONS
If the aboleth's elite trait is active, it can use the options below as legendary actions for 1 hour after using Rejuvenating Slime.

Fling Slim. Ranged Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, range 30 / 60 ft. one target. Hit: 14 (4d6) acid damage.
Spell Casting. The aboleth cast an at will spell
Dominate (Cost 2 actions). The aboleth chooses on creature charmed by it within 120 feet of it. The creature must succeed on a DC 16 Intelligence saving throw or by dominated by the aboleth as in the spell dominate monster. The aboleth can use a bonus action to precisely control a creature it has dominated.

PLANETAR CHAMPION
1612536042784.png

Planetars Champions are powerful spirits that directly serve the powers of the Upper Planes. They are tall, commanding humanoids who have smooth emerald skin, two pairs of white feathered wings, hairless heads, and eyes of a penetrating blue. Their overall manner projects strength and confidence.

Planetars Champions aid only the most powerful mortal servants on missions of good, particularly those that involved battles with fiends. Planetar champions love battling fiends and slay every truly evil creature set in their path.

As celestial stewards, planetar champions directly serve good deities. They are only sent to other planes to aid the most powerful and faithful of their deities' servants. Only the most perilous of missions were assigned to them, such as rescuing a mortal cleric from the grips of a pit fiend or recovering a stolen artifact from the lair of an arcanaloth. On such missions, they usually act alone.

ACTIONS
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, reach 25 ft., one target. Hit: 55 (10d8 + 10) piercing damage and the target must make a DC 25 Strength saving throw or be grappled. A grappled creature is also restrained and Zaratan cannot bite another creature until the grapple ends.

The shock wave deals 100 thunder damage to all structures in contact with the ground in the area.

Amorphous. The pudding can move through a space as narrow as 1 foot wide without squeezing.

Dreadful Piping (Champion Trait, recharges after a short or long rest). If the elder pudding is bloodied, it makes a hideous piping, it can remove one condition or effect it is suffering and it can use its champion actions.

Corrosive Form. A creature that touches the pudding or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 7 (2d6) acid damage. Any nonmagical weapon made of metal or wood that hits the pudding corrodes. After dealing damage, the weapon takes a permanent and cumulative −1 penalty to damage rolls. If its penalty drops to −5, the weapon is destroyed.
Nonmagical ammunition made of metal or wood that hits the pudding is destroyed after dealing damage.
The pudding can eat through 2-inch-thick, nonmagical wood or metal in 1 round.

Regenerate. The pudding regains 10 hit points at the start of its turn if it has at least 1 hit point. If the pudding takes fire damage, this trait doesn't function at the start of the pudding's next turn.

Spider Climb. The pudding can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

ACTIONS
Pseudopod. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage plus 18 (4d8) acid damage. In addition, nonmagical armor worn by the target is partly dissolved and takes a permanent and cumulative −1 penalty to the AC it offers. The armor is destroyed if the penalty reduces its AC to 10.
Reactions

Split. When a pudding that is Medium or larger is subjected to lightning or slashing damage, it splits into two new puddings if it has at least 10 hit points. Each new pudding has hit points equal to half the original pudding's, rounded down. New puddings are one size smaller than the original pudding.

CHAMPION ACTIONS
Once the elder black pudding's champion trait is activated, on its initiative count +10 it can take one of the following actions.

Grab. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage and the target must make a DC 16 Strength saving throw or be grappled. A grappled creature suffers the effect of corrosive touch at the start of each of its turns. The elder pudding can grapple one Large or two Medium or four Small or smaller targets.
Hideous Piping. The pudding emits a dreadful cacophony of wails, gasps, and screeches. Each creature within 90 feet of that can hear it must make a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or be confused (as in the spell confusion) for 1d4 rounds. On a successful save, a creature is immune to this elder puddings hideous piping for 24 hours.

False Appearance. While the ancient treant remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from a normal tree.

Minor Magic Immunity. Unless it wishes, the treant is immune to cantrips and magic that affects plants. Additionally, it has advantage on saving throws against spells and magical effects and any creature that makes a spell attack against the treany has disadvantage on the attack roll.

Magic Weapons. The ancient treant’s weapon attacks are magical.

Regenerate. The ancient treant gains 10 hit points at the start of its turn if it has at least 1 hit point and it is in a forest. If the ancient treant takes fire damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of its next turn.

Siege Monster. The ancient treant deals double damage to objects and structures.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. The treant makes two melee attacks.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 21 (4d6 + 7) bludgeoning damage and the target must make a DC 20 Strength saving throw or be pushed 5 feet for each point it fails the saving throw or be grappled, the treant's choice.

Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 10 ft., one Medium or smaller target. Hit: 25 (4d8 + 7) bludgeoning damage and the target must make a DC 20 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. Until the treant uses its Stomp again or moves, the creature is restrained. While restrained in this way, the creature (or another creature within 5 feet of it) can use its action to make a DC 20 Strength check. On a success, the creature relocates to an unoccupied space of its choice within 5 feet of the colossus and is no longer restrained.

Fling. One Large or smaller object held or a creature grappled by the ancient treant is thrown up to 60 feet and knocked prone. If a thrown target strikes a solid surface, the target takes 4 (1d8) bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet it was thrown. If the target is thrown at another creature, that creature must succeed on a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw or take the same damage and be knocked prone.

Rock. Ranged Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, range 90/270 ft., one target. Hit: 29 (4d10 + 7) bludgeoning damage and the target must make a DC 20 Constitution saving throw or be stunned until the end of the treant's next turn.

Innate Spellcasting. The ancient treant’s spell casting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 17, +9 to hit with attack spells). The ancient treant can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At-Will: druidcraft, speak with plants, entangle
3/day each: plant growth, spike growth,
1/day each: wall of thorns

Animate Trees (1/Day).
The treant magically animates one or two trees it can see within 120 feet of it. These trees have the same statistics as a treant, except they have Intelligence and Charisma scores of 1, they can't speak, and they have only the Slam action option. An animated tree acts as an ally of the treant. The tree remains animate for 1 day or until it dies; until the treant dies or is more than 240 feet from the tree; or until the treant takes a bonus action to turn it back into an inanimate tree. The tree then takes root if possible.

REACTIONS
Retributive Throw. If the treant is hit by a ranged attack or takes fire damage from an attack, it makes a rock or fling attack targeting the source of the attack.

Brutal. The vampire deals an extra 5 damage when it hits with a melee weapon attack (included in the attack).

Lord of Shadows. The vampire lord can use a bonus action to take the Hide action if it is in dim light.

Misty Escape. When it drops to 0 hit points outside its resting place, the vampire transforms into a cloud of mist (as in the Shapechanger trait) instead of falling unconscious, provided that it isn't in sunlight or running water. If it can't transform, it is destroyed.

While it has 0 hit points in mist form, it can't revert to its vampire form, and it must reach its resting place within 4 hours or be destroyed. Once in its resting place, it reverts to its vampire form. It is then paralyzed until it regains at least 1 hit point. After spending 1 hour in its resting place with 0 hit points, it regains 1 hit point.

Regeneration. When vampire is not in its mist form, it regains 20 hit points at the start of its turn if it has at least 1 hit point and isn't in sunlight. If the vampire takes radiant damage or damage from holy water, this trait doesn't function at the start of the vampire's next turn.

Shapechanger. If the vampire lord isn't in sunlight, it can use its action to polymorph into a swarm of bats, a dire wolf, a Medium cloud of mist, or back into its true form.

While in bat form, the vampire can't speak, its walking speed is 5 feet, and it has a flying speed of 40 feet. Its statistics, other than its size and speed, are unchanged. Anything it is wearing transforms with it, but nothing it is carrying does. It reverts to its true form if it dies.

While in mist form, the vampire can't take any actions, speak, or manipulate objects. It is weightless, has a flying speed of 30 feet, can hover, and can enter a hostile creature's space and stop there. In addition, if air can pass through a space, the mist can do so without squeezing, and it can’t pass through water. It has advantage on Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution saving throws, and it is immune to all nonmagical damage, except the damage it takes from sunlight.

Spider Climb. The vampire can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

Sunlight Sensitivity. While in sunlight, it has disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks.

Undead Resistance. The vampire lord has advantage on saving throws to resist effects that inflict the incapacitated, paralayzed, petrified, or stunned conditions.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. (Vampire Form Only). The vampire makes two attacks, only one of which can be a bite attack.

Unarmed Strike (Vampire Form Only). Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 13 (1d6 + 10) bludgeoning damage and if the target is a Large or smaller creature it must make a DC 18 strength saving throw or be grappled. Alternately, instead of dealing damage, the vampire can grapple the target (escape DC 18).

Bite. (Bat or Vampire Form Only). Melee Weapon Attack:+10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one willing creature, or a creature that is grappled by the vampire, incapacitated, or restrained. Hit: 12 (1d4 + 10) piercing damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage. The target's hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the necrotic damage taken, and the vampire regains hit points equal to that amount. The reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0. A humanoid slain in this way and then buried in the ground rises the following night as a vampire spawn under the vampire's control.

Charm. The vampire targets one humanoid it can see within 60 feet of it. If the target can see the vampire, the target must succeed on a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw against this magic or be charmed by the vampire. The charmed target regards the vampire as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected and it is a willing target for the vampire's bite attack.

Each time the vampire or the vampire's companions do anything harmful to the target, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success. Otherwise, the effect lasts 24 hours or until the vampire is destroyed or takes a bonus action to end the effect.

Spellcasting. The vampire lord is a 9th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 18, +10 to hit with spell attacks). The vampire lord has the following wizard spells prepared:

Cantrips (at will): mage hand, prestidigitation, ray of frost
1st level (4 slots): magic missile, fog cloud, sleep
2nd level (3 slots): darkness, detect thoughts, mirror image
3rd level (3 slots): bestow curse, counterspell, nondetection
4th level (3 slots): blight, greater invisibility
5th level (1 slot): dominate person

Children of the Night (1/Short Rest).
The vampire magically calls 2d4 swarms of bats or rats (swarm of bats, swarm of rats), provided that the sun isn't up. While outdoors, the vampire can call 3d6 wolves (wolf) instead. The called creatures arrive in 1d4 rounds, acting as allies of the vampire and obeying its spoken commands. The beasts remain for 1 hour, until the vampire dies, or until the vampire dismisses them as a bonus action.

BONUS ACTIONS
Lord of Shadows.
If the vampire is in dim light or darker, it can take the Hide action.

Undead Speed. The vampire lord can use a bonus action to take the Bite, Dash, or Disengage actions. Additionally, when it takes the Dash action it can move up to twice its speed (80 feet).

LEGENDARY ACTIONS
The vampire can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. The vampire regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Move. The vampire moves up to its speed without provoking opportunity attacks.
Unarmed Strike. The vampire makes one unarmed strike.
Unstoppable. The vampire removes one condition or effect it is suffering.
Bite. (Costs 2 Actions). The vampire makes one bite attack.
Dominate (Cost 3 Actions). The vampire commands one creature it has charmed. The creature must use its reaction to move up to its speed and make an attack or cast a spell with a target of one creature. The vampire choses the action and the target.

Does this have anything to do with Pathfinder 1e's "Mythic" feature? Also, does iz the statblock for Tiamat for the greater goddes herself or for an avatar/aspect/visage of ber?

These are based on the D&D 5e Mythic monster "template" introduced in the new D&D book "Mythic Odysseys of Theros" or MOot by WotC. It is not related to Pathfinder at all.

In 5e, Tiamat is a lesser goddess. In theory her official stat block is in the book "Rise of Tiamat." Before the mythic monsters presented in MOoT, she was the most powerful monster stated in 5e. I took the RAW statblock, made a few tweaks and gave her the mythic treatment, which is equivalent to two "official" Tiamats. It is up to you to determine if this is her true form or an avatar. There is some sense in saying her "official" stat block is an avatar and this could be her true form. Howevr, for me this mythic form would still be an avatar, her true form is much more powerful.

WotC have confirmed this is the "full" Tiamat.

Why is that actually? I mean, none of the D&D lore, no matter the edition supports it, and yet you always make Tiamat one of the most powerful - if not the most powerful - of your designs. So just wondering.

(And I've said before - I way prefer her as the Ur-dragon, instead of a goddess.)

Yep, that was my intent when I said: "In 5e, Tiamat is a lesser goddess. In theory her official stat block is in the book "Rise of Tiamat."

Several issues here:
  • Bias - I love dragons ;) I mean, look at my avatar!!
  • Dragons are often thought of the most powerful sentient mortals, it seems odd their gods are just barely more powerful than they are.
  • Io is often seen as one of if not the most powerful of the gods. I've replaced Io with Tiamat basically.
  • Tiamat, the mythological version, was probably the most powerful god-like creature. All the gods feared her. She was only defeated by the eventual ruler of the gods aided by powerful artifacts.
  • Finally, in the future I will be taking a more D&D (BECMI) approach and treating dragon gods differently from other gods. Dragons, and their gods, are a different class of being all together. It is possible that the dragon gods are just the first / very, very old dragons.
Also, what is the "Ur-dragon"
