Confusing Burble. The jabberwock burbles to itself unless it is incapacitated. Any creature that starts its turn within 30 feet of the jabberwock and is able to hear its burbling must make a DC 18 Charisma saving throw. On a failed saving throw, the creature can’t take reactions until the start of its next turn, and it rolls a d4 to determine what it does during its current turn:

1–2. The creature does nothing.
3. The creature does nothing except use all its movement to move in a random direction.
4. The creature either makes one melee attack against a random creature it can see or does nothing if no visible creature is within its reach.

Regeneration. The jabberwock regains 10 hit points at the start of its turn. if the jabberwock takes slashing damage from a vorpal sword, this trait doesn't function at the start of its next turn. The jabberwock dies only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and it doesn't regenerate.

Uncanny Tracker. The jabberwock can unerringly track any creature it has wounded in the last 24 hours, and it knows the distance and direction to its quarry as long as the two of them are on the same plane of existence.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. Melee Spell Attack: +16 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 14 (4d6) cold damage. The target must succeed on a DC 21Constitution saving throw or be paralyzed for 1 minute. The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage, or 8 (1d8 + 4) bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage when used with two hands.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage, or 8 (1d8 + 4) bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage when used with two hands.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage, or 8 (1d8 + 4) bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) necrotic damage when used with two hands.

Fiery Gaze (Recharge 5–6). Unless it is blinded, the jabberwock emits a 120-foot-long, 5-foot-wide line of fire from its eyes. Each creature in that line must make a DC 18 Dexterity saving throw, taking 31 (7d8) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

BONUS ACTIONS

Brownie by Arthur Rackham

BROWNIE
Source: 1e Monster Manual (conversion by @the Jester)

A brownie is a small fey relative of the halfling, reputed to have mixed halfling and pixie blood. Shy but friendly to good folk, brownies usually live in isolated, pastoral settings. Some secret themselves in small villages, living alongside humans and their ilk, but most prefer to maintain a more distant relationship with their larger cousins.

A brownie stands between 18” and 24” tall and weighs about 10 lbs. It has nut-brown skin and red, curly hair. Brownies tend to wear bright green, yellow, or red clothes, usually with bright buckles on their shoes and belts.

Aid to the Good. Brownies are usually willing to aid good creatures in need when they encounter them. They distrust neutral creatures and despise evil, shunning, hindering, or even attempting to kill those whom the brownies believe to be malign.

Brownie Treasure. A group of ten to twenty brownies has a 20% chance each of having 1d6 gems, 1d4 art objects, and 1d4 potions. A group of 21 or more brownies instead has a 30% chance each of having 2d6 gems, 1d6 art objects, and 1d6 potions.

Forest Nymph by SGTROCK117
Nymph
Source: 1e Monster Manual (conversion by @the Jester)

A nymph is a fey incarnation of beauty. Reclusive and vain, a nymph is so gorgeous that merely seeing one can blind or kill a creature. A nymph sometimes guards hidden areas of great natural beauty, preventing other creatures from despoiling it through persuasion, magic and the power of the nymph's allies.

Unearthly Beauty. As an embodiment of beauty, a nymph is a dazzling vision, often draped in diaphanous clothing that is easily removed. It is so beautiful that other creatures can sometimes acquire a small piece of its glamor; for example, a female humanoid that bathes in the same water as a nymph within 1 hour of the nymph's having done so increases its Charisma score and maximum by 2 for 24 hours. Sometimes nymph hair or blood is required by the recipes for certain magic items involving beauty or vanity.

Dalliances with Mortal Creatures. A nymph tends to enjoy romance with humans, elves, and other beautiful mortal creatures. While its flighty nature means that such relationships are usually fleeting, sometimes they result in half-nymph offspring that share a small portion of the nymph's beauty. Nymphs aren't very good parents, being too self-involved and narcissistic to pay much attention to something as needy as a child.

When a nymph is either tricked into dallying with a fiend or somehow finds itself sufficiently interested in one, such offspring show both sides of their nature as a forlarren. The nymph inevitably casts such a child out, showing no maternal instincts toward it whatsoever.

Nymph Treasure. Nymphs love beautiful things and are often showered with gifts by would-be suitors and other visitors. A nymph has a 25% chance each of having 2d6 gems and 1d4 art objects and a 20% chance each of having 1d4 potions and 1 random magic item. A group of two to six nymphs instead has a 60% chance each of having 3d8 gems and 2d6 art objects, as well as a 35% chance each of having 1d6+1 potions and 1d2 random magic items. A group of seven or more nymphs instead has a 60% chance each of having 5d10 gems and 3d6 art objects, as well as a 50% chance each to having 2d6 potions and 1d4 random magic items.

Unearthly Beauty. A humanoid that starts its turn within 30 feet of the nymph and doesn't avert its eyes must make a DC 19 Constitution save or be blinded. The creature can make another saving throw, with disadvantage, every 24 hours after it was initially blinded, ending the condition on itself on a success. If the nymph is nude, a creature that fails its save by 5 or more is also knocked unconscious for 1 hour. A creature that is immune to the charmed condition is immune to this effect.

A creature that averts its eyes can't see the nymph until the start of the creature's next turn.

Unnerving Beauty. A creature that targets the nymph has disadvantage on the attack roll.

ACTIONS
Dagger.
Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4+3) piercing damage.

Poison Spray. The nymph conjures poisonous gas that engulfs one creature of its choice within 10 feet of it. The Creature must make a DC 19 Constitution saving throw or take 13 (2d12) poison damage.

Stunning Glance. The nymph glances at one creature within 60 feet of it. The target must make a DC 19 Wisdom save or be stunned until the end of the nymphs next turn. If a creature fails their saving throw by 5 or more, they are stunned for 1 minute instead. A creature that is immune to the charmed condition is immune to this effect.

Luring Song (1/Rest). The nymph sings an enchanting tune. All creatures of the nymph's choice that are within 30 feet of it, and that can hear it, must make a DC 19 Wisdom saving throw or be Charmed by the nymph. If a creature that fails its save by 5 or more it is forced to look at the nymph until the end of its next turn.

Innate Spellcasting. The nymph's spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 19, +11 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At will. druidcraft, guidance, poison spray, shillelagh.
3/day each. animal messenger, cure wounds, entangle, faerie fire
1/day each. call lightning, dispel magic, freedom of movement, ice storm

Ice Storm (1/Day). The nymph uses its innate casting ability to magically conjure hail that pummels a 20-foot radius by 40-foot high cylinder that the nymph can see within 300 feet of it. Each creature in the cylinder must make a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw, taking 9 (2d8) bludgeoning and 14 (4d6) cold damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Call Lightning (1/Day). The nymph uses its innate casting ability to magically conjure a storm cloud in the shape of a cylinder that is 10 feet tall with a 60-foot radius, centered on a point 100 feet directly above the nymph.

The nymph chooses a point it can see within 120 feet of it. A bolt of lightning flashes down from the cloud to that point. Each creature within 5 feet of that point must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 16 (3d10) lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. On each of its turns until the spell ends, the nymph can use an action to call down lightning in this way again, targeting the same point or a different one.

BONUS ACTIONS
Disrobe.
The nymph removes its clothes.

REACTIONS
Wounded Glance (only when Bloodied).
If a ranged attack would hit the nymph, the nymph can glance at its attacker and the hit becomes a miss. To do so, the nymph must be able to see its attacker.

Ena the crystalline elemental by Lily Abdullina

OREAD
Source: 3e Fiend Folio (conversion by @the Jester)

An oread is a fey creature linked to a mountain, similar to how a dryad is linked to a tree. The oread guards the natural state of its mountain against those who would exploit its resources through mining, quarrying or deforesting it. An individual miner might be warned off and sent on its way, but a large party is likely to meet utter disaster.

An oread appears as a stern, handsome woman with stony skin. Its hair appears to be made of strands of stringy lichen, and is white when snow covers its mountain peak. An oread often wears a gown or dress woven from the metals of the mountain, and many wear uncut gems taken from the hidden depths of their mountain.

Willing Host for Monsters. An oread fiercely guards her mountain's untrammeled state, and prefers the presence of monsters over that of more civilized folk, since monsters are less likely to steal away the mountain's treasures. Even a wyvern that lairs in a crack in her mountain, jealously guarding a vein of metal or gems, doesn't actually damage the natural state of the mountain. A clan of dwarves, on the other hand, is bound to tunnel and dig, stealing her mountain's very bones, and such things can't be tolerated.

Brilliant Engineers. Oreads are brilliant stoneworkers and engineers. They rarely use these skills except when arranging deadly traps for those who would exploit their home mountain. An oread has neither need nor desire to build shelter or walls. It prefers to live on the natural ledges and heights of its peak, using its abilities to create deadfalls, avalanches, rockfalls and other similar traps that use the natural surroundings.

Oread Treasure. If an oread's secret cave lair can be found, it is 90% likely to contain 2d4 gems.

Earth Glide. The oread can burrow through nonmagical, unworked earth and stone. While doing so, the elemental doesn't disturb the material it moves through.

Mountain Dependency. For every hour that the oread spends more than one mile from its mountain, the oread gains one level of exhaustion that it can't lose until it completes a long rest within one mile of its mountain.

ACTIONS
Multiattack.
The oread makes two slam attacks.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6+4) bludgeoning damage.

Innate Spellcasting. The oread can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components and using Charisma as her spellcasting ability (save DC 13, +5 to hit with spell attacks):

3/day charm monster (will affect any creature type, but otherwise as charm person), spike growth, stone shape, transmute rock.
1/day earthquake, move earth.

Stone Tell. The oread speaks to a stone or rock area, surface or object. The stone is friendly to her, and can relate what it has overheard or felt, but has no other senses.

Mountain Step (1/Rest). The oread instantly teleports from one spot on its mountain to another with no chance of error.

Spriggan by Blanca Martinez & Joe Sparrow

SPRIGGAN
Source: 3e Fiend Folio (conversion by @the Jester)

Spriggans are evil forest-dwelling cousins of gnomes who split from gnomekind eons ago over a joke gone wrong. Spriggans have the magical ability to grow to about the size of an ogre, often delivering a nasty surprise to enemies who underestimate it.

Spriggans are disgusting and foul, and carry a rank odor of grease and rancid flesh with them. They mat their red hair with lard to tease it into intimdiating wild shapes, and love to grow it to ridiculous lengths. A spriggan might have a wild, bushy mustache, lambchop sideburns, and a flared beard. Many work to grow exaggerated eyebrows and lashes, too. A spriggan is normally around 3' high, but when it enlarges itself, it grows to about 12' in height.

Bad Humor. Gnomes say that spriggans went bad because they can't take a joke, and there is certainly some truth to that. A spriggan that is the victim of a practical joke is most likely to respond with murderous rage, rather than laughing it off. Nonetheless, spriggans maintain the gnomish interest in jokes and pranks, albeit with a twist toward cruelty, as long as those jokes and pranks are played by the spriggans and not on them.

Spriggan Treasure. A typical spriggan carries 2d12 sp, 1d6 ep, and 2d10 gp. The lair of a pack of three to twelve spriggans also has a 25% chance each of having 1d8 x 100 sp, 1d6 x 100 gp, and 2d10 x 10 gp in trade goods. The lair of a gang of 13 to 40 spriggans instead also has a 30% chance each of having 2d6 x 250 sp, 2d10 x 100 gp, and 3d6 x 50 in trade goods, plus a 10% chance to have 1d4 potions (1-5), 1 piece of magical clothing (6-7), or 1 magic weapon (8-10).

While enlarged, the spriggan is Large, doubles its damage dice on Strength-based weapon attacks (included in the attacks), and makes Strength checks and saves with advantage. If it lacks the room to become Large, the spriggan attains the maximum size possible for the space available.

Sylph by KantaKerro

SYLPH
Source: 2e Monstrous Manual (conversion by @the Jester)

A sylph resembles a beautiful female elf with gossamer wings resembling those of a dragonfly. Though the wings are only about 4' to 5' long, they allow the sylph to fly adroitly. Sylphs are said to be the result of the crossing of fey with some sort of air elemental creature; one theory suggests that nymphs and aerial servants may have dallied to create the first sylphs. Sylphs rarely descend into the lowlands, preferring higher elevations. Most sylphs live isolated lives, frolicking with the winds and flying creatures.

Lovers of Mortal Men. All sylphs are female. They reproduce by dallying with mortal males, preferring elves but sometimes accepting a halfling or human. Three months after conception, the sylph lays a silvery egg and summons an air elemental to guard it. Six months later, a delicate female child with wing buds hatches from it. The child grows approximately as fast as a human child, and its wings are grown enough for it to fly by the age of 10.

Generational Meetings. Every 28 years, a great gathering of sylphs from all over the world takes place. There, the sylphs renew friendships, welcome new members of the community, share news and rumors, and tell tales of their accomplishments.

Sylph Treasure. Sylphs favor gems. Each sylph has a 50% chance of having 2d12 gems.

ACTIONS
Dagger.

Summon Air Elemental (1/day). An air elemental appears within 60 ft. of the sylph. It is friendly to the sylph and obeys its spoken commands. The elemental remains until the sylph dismisses it or until 1 hour passes.

Innate Spellcasting. The sylph's innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 13, +5 to hit with spell attacks). The sylph can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At will. blade ward, dancing lights, friends, ray of frost.

Fossergrim by Birgitte Gustavsen

FOSSERGRIM
Source: 3e Fiend Folio (conversion by @the Jester)

A fossergrim is a reclusive fey that is tied to a waterfall, much like a dryad is linked to her oak tree. The fossergrim appears as a handsome human male with bluish-white hair.

The fossergrim doesn't usually bother creatures that bathe or drink from its waterfall, but those who pollute it, seek to dam or divert it, or otherwise offer insult or harm to the waterfall arouse the fossergrim's wrath.

Bound to Stay Close to Home. The fossergrim draws its strength from its waterfall. If it ever leaves it, it sickens and dies.Thus, a fossergrim only travels any distance under the most extreme duress, and if it must do so, it constantly complains about its aches and pains, about its growing insecurity and apprehension, and about how vulnerable its waterfall is without the fossergrim to watch over it.

Lovers of Mortal Women. Fossergrims are notorious for seducing humanoid women, often leaving them pregnant. The child appears human at first, but as it ages, it eventually abandons its home to go seek a waterfall of its own.

Fossergrim Treasure. A fossergrim is 25% likely each to have 1d8 x 100 cp, sp, ep, and gp in the pool into which its watefall flows. It also has a 30% chance each to have 1d6 gems and pieces of jewelry.

Power of the Splashing Waters. If the fossergrim starts its turn in splashing waters, it regains 5 hit points.

If the fossergrim is in spashing water, it has advantage on all saving throws and on attacks against creatures also in splashing water.

Waterfall Dependency. For every hour that the fossergrim spends more than 1,000' from its waterfall, the fossergrim gains one level of exhaustion that it can't lose until it completes a long rest within 1,000' of its waterfall.

ACTIONS
Multiattack.
The fossergrim makes two attacks with its battleaxe or two attacks with its longbow.

Battleaxe. Melee Weapon Attack. +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8+2) slashing damage, or 7 (1d10+2) slashing damage if wielded in both hands.

Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack. +5 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8+3) piercing damage.

Enchanting Fiddle. The fossergrim plays a magical song on its fiddle. Each creature of the fossergrim's choice that is within 120 feet of it and can hear it must make a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or be Charmed by the fossergrim for 1 minute. A creature Charmed in this way must use all of its movement on its turn to move closer to the fossergrim. A creature can make an additional saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the fossergrim's enchanting fiddle for the next 24 hours.
