Brute. A melee weapon deals on extra die of damage when the gray render hits with it (included in the attack).

Gray Endurance (Elite Trait, 1/Rest). When the gray render is first bloodied, all conditions and effects it is suffering end for it, its elite traits activate, and all of its abilities recharge. Additionally, on its initiative count +10, or in place of an Action on its turn, the gray render can use an elite action.

Natural Camouflage. The gray render has advantage on its Hide attempts when in areas of rock or bare earth.

Spell Resistance. The gray render takes half damage from magical effects and spells.

The gray render makes two claw attacks.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (3d8 + 5) slashing damage. If the target is Large or smaller, the target must succeed on a DC 17 Strength saving throw or be grappled or knocked prone, the gray render's choice.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 24 (3d12 + 5) piercing damage. This attack is a critical hit if the gray render has advantage on the attack and both rolls hit.

BONUS ACTIONS

The gray render can make a bite attack against a target that is prone, incapacitated, or it has grappled.

REACTIONS
Bloody Rampage. When the gray render takes damage, it makes one attack with its claws against a random creature within its reach, other than its master.

Action Surge (1/day). The yuan-ti can make three additional longsword attacks on its turn.

Alert. The yuan-ti gains a +5 bonus to its initiative, it can’t be surprised while it is conscious, and other creatures don’t gain advantage on attack rolls against it as a result of being hidden.

Indomitable (1/long rest). The yuan-ti can re-roll a saving throw it has failed.

Magic Resistance. The yuan-ti has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Sentinel. When the yuan-ti hits a creature with an opportunity attack, the creature’s speed becomes 0 for the rest of its turn, and creatures within 5 feet of the yuan-ti provoke opportunity attacks even if they take the Disengage action.

Shapechanger. The yuan-ti can use its action to polymorph into a Large snake or back into its true form. Its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It doesn’t change form if it dies.

1/day: fear

BONUS ACTIONS

Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) bludgeoning damage. In addition, if the target is dropped to 0 hit points or less the ogre may choose to knock the target unconscious instead.

Sack. The ogre attempts to grapple a medium or smaller creature. On a successful grapple the target is stuffed into a sack and restrained. The target can be freed by using an action to use a slashing or piercing weapon to cut open the sack. The target can then exit the sack prone in an unoccupied space adjacent to the sack. Each sack can hold one Medium or two Small creatures.

Sack Smash. The ogre swings it sack at the ground or another hard surface. A creature restrained in the sack must make a DC 14 Strength saving throw, taking 13 (2d8+4) bludgeoning damage and be stunned until the end of its next turn on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If an occupied sack is swung at another creature, that creature must succeed on a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw or take the same damage and be knocked prone.

BONUS ACTIONS
Bash.
The ogre makes a greatclub attack against a target restrained in its sack.
