Yeah the changes are good. hehe just ooooooooone more thing. The way its written, Swarm Resistance cannot stop effects that prevent you from doing actions (or like banishment, anything at all). So I would add the word immediately in there, to drive him that this ability can be used for those things.
Your killing me! And...updated. Now I have a beautiful swarm template and no desire to make any swarms for a long time! ;)

I have upload a new deity format with the introduction of Panzuriel, the Enslaver. This mimics the deity format in Theros with the additions of the information on divine realm and the godly stat block of course!

This is still a work in progress in terms of the deity information. That takes a lot longer to write, so I will present the deity entry shortly after the stat block is finished. I can then go back and add the flavor / PC info later.

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Immutable Form. The golem is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.

Limited Magic Immunity. The golem is immune to any spell or magical effect of 2nd level or lower. Additionally, it has advantage on saving throws against spells and magical effects and any creature that makes a spell attack against the golem has disadvantage on the attack roll.

Adamantine Durability (Elite Trait, recharges after a short or long rest). If the golem is reduced to 0 hit points, it doesn’t die or fall unconscious. Instead, all conditions and effects it is suffering end for it, it regains 276 hit points, all of its abilities recharge, and it can use elite actions.

Adamant Skin. The golem is immune to all damage unless an attack or effect inflicts 10 or more hit points of damage, in which case it takes damage as normal. Additionally, any critical hit against the golem becomes a normal hit.

Brute. A melee weapon deals one extra die of its damage when the golem hits with it (included in the attack).

Destructive Strikes. When the golem has advantage, its melee attacks deal an additional 22 (4d10) bludgeoning damage on a hit.

Immutable Form. The golem is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.

Limited Magic Immunity. The golem is immune to any spell or magical effect of 2nd level or lower. Additionally, it has advantage on saving throws against spells and magical effects and any creature that makes a spell attack against the golem has disadvantage on the attack roll.

Magic Weapons. The golem’s weapon attacks are magical.

Shred Magic (3/Short Rest). The golem can use a reaction at the end of its turn to remove one magical condition, effect, or spell it is suffering as if it had cast dispel magic at 8th level.

Siege Monster. The golem deals double damage to objects and structures.

Trample. If the golem moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a slam attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 22 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the golem can make one stomp attack as a bonus action.

Multiattack. The golem makes two melee attacks.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 30 (4d10 + 8) bludgeoning damage and the target must make a DC 22 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone or pushed 15 feet, the golem's choice.

Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 10 ft., one prone or Medium or smaller target. Hit: 34 (4d12 + 8) bludgeoning damage and the target must make a DC 22 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.

ELITE ACTIONS
Once the golem's elite trait is activated it can take an elite action, choosing from the options below, on its initiative count +10, or in place of one of its standard actions on its turn.

Crushing Slam. The golem makes a slam attack on a Large or smaller creature. On a hit, the creature is also grappled (escape DC 22). A creature grappled this way is also restrained and takes 22 (4d10) bludgeoning damage at the end of each of its turns.
Javelin Launcher (Recharge 4-6). The golem launches three adamantine javelins, making the following attack for each javelin: Ranged Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, range 120/240 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (3d6 + 8) piercing damage.

While in Rezuriel, Panzuriel is considered CR 34 (240,000 XP / 960,000XP)

Destructive Strike. I like the concept of Destructive Strikes, it shakes up the golem from a normal bruiser. That said, it does add a bit more on the DM side to run. An alternative idea:

"When the Adamantine golem has advantage, he deals 22 extra damage". This is easier for a DM to manage...and it also adds more value to all of those proning attacks: "oh crap I'm prone and AHHHHH....squish." At the end of the day I think both work for the concept, its just a question of the effort for a DM to run this.


You used damage thresholds before with some of your gods and elementals, it might also make sense for this guy... I mean adamantine is the hardest stuff there is!
If nothing else, if there is one monster in the whole book that should be immune to critical hits, its this guy. After all, a simple adamantine shield is enough to make a user immune from crits normally.

The Adamant Darts... I appreciate giving the golem ranged attacks but something about this concept of throwing little darts didn't do it for me....but I'm struggling to offer a better flavor, sorry.

Ok something more controversial, and it really depends on if you the want to golem to be "just a bruiser that does a lot of damage" or "a special memorial really scary guy". But one idea you could try out is once he has elite traits, he activates some kind of small anti-magic field around himself. This suddenly turns him into a nigh invincible killing machine if you don't have the right tools. Since this guy is often the epitome of golem hood, if there was one golem that regained some of the old edition "magic immunity", it could be this one....so something to consider.

Depends on whether the Admantine Golem is technological (robot) or more like a hunk of armor.
But that idea seems like a good one.

I had originally intended for Panzuriel to be CR 33, the CR 34 was its rank in its Divine domain. However, the 8 tentacle attacks do so much damage that it raised his CR to 38. I will get the rank in the divine realm corrected.

I intended to included it. I cut it from the Mithril Golem to give to the Adamantine and then evidently forgot to paste it in! I will get that corrected.

I imagine them more as javelins (and almost called them that) that shoot out of it, not thrown. I will think of a way to clarify it.

I gave the mithril golem more spell immunity I think, but this guy is pretty spell resistant too. I will think about taking it up a notch..

Action Surge (2/Day). The LeShay can take one additional action on top of its regular action and a possible bonus action.

Charming Gaze. If a creature starts its turn within 30 feet of the LeShay and the two of them can see each other, the creature must make a DC 24 Wisdom saving throw or be magically charmed. The charmed creature regards the Leshay as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected. Although the target isn't under the leshay's control, it takes the leshay's requests or actions in the most favorable way it can.

Each time the leshay or its allies 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 lesahy dies, is on a different plane of existence from the target, or ends the effect as a bonus action. If a target's saving throw is successful, the target is immune to the hamadryad's Fey Charm for the next 24 hours.

A creature that isn't surprised can avert its eyes to avoid the saving throw at the start of its turn. If it does so, it can't see the basilisk until the start of its next turn, when it can avert its eyes again.

If it looks at the LeShay in the meantime, it must immediately make the save.

Fey Ancestry. The LeShay has advantage on saving throws against being charmed and it can't be magically put to sleep.

At will: alter self, blur, counterspell, detect thoughts, dispel magic, freedom of movement, greater invisibility, heal, knock, speak with plans and animals, teleport, water breathing

LeShay Weapons. The LeShay can conjure two magical weapons to its hands as a free action action. The weapons are unique to the LeShay and disappear when they are not used. While wielding its weapons, the LeShay gains a +1 bonus to its AC (included in its AC) and it an use a bonus action to make one LeShay Weapon attack.

Magic Resistance. The LeShay has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects and any creature that makes a spell attack against the LeShay has disadvantage on the attack roll.

ACTIONS
Multiattack.
The LeShay makes four weapon attacks.

LeShay Weapon. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (1d10 + 8) slashing damage.

LeShay Weapon. Ranged Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, range 60 / 120 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (1d10 + 8) slashing damage. The weapon immediately returns to the Leshay's hand after it hits or misses its target.

REACTIONS
Parry.
When the LeShay would be hit by an attack, it can reduce the damage by 13 (1d10 + 8).

Retributive Strike. When a creature misses the Leshay with a melee attack, it can make a melee weapon attack against the creature.

Forest Magic (1/Short Rest). If the hamadryad is in a forest, it can use a bonus action to cast a spell.

Forest Matron. The hamadryad ignores difficult terrain in a forest and takes no damage from spells that create or modify plants like spike growth, wall of thorns, or similar magic.

Innate Spellcasting. The hamadryad's innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 16, +8 to hit with attack spells). The dryad can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

Fey Charm. The hamadryad targets one humanoid or beast that she can see within 60 feet of her. If the target can see the hamadryad, it must succeed on a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw or be magically charmed. The charmed creature regards the hamadryad as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected. Although the target isn't under the hamadryad's control, it takes the hamadryad's requests or actions in the most favorable way it can.

Each time the hamadryad or its allies 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 hamadryad dies, is on a different plane of existence from the target, or ends the effect as a bonus action. If a target's saving throw is successful, the target is immune to the hamadryad's Fey Charm for the next 24 hours.

The hamadryad can have no more than two humanoids and up to six beasts charmed at a time.

How do you get CR21?

HP 375 = CR20. AC 18/19 (this is not explained btw) = CR20

Dam/round = 100 (23*13) = CR16. Attack bonus +15 =+3 CR = CR19.

Final CR 19/20.
The 19 was from wielding two weapons, but your correct I forgot to mention that! I will get that corrected. EDIT - corrected.

The basic CR I also calculated at 19.5 (but my calculation was a bit different); however, it has a very powerful, always on gaze, attack, so I bumped to 21. FYI, if I remember correctly the basilisk CR was increased by 1 for its gaze and this much more powerful so I increased it by 2.

Not to mention it can cast blur at will.

Right. I'm just trying to figure out how to get to CR. RAW is pretty indifferent to non-damaging spells/attacks.

BTW, I don't think blur is a game changer at CR21, and neither are charm effects.

If you deconstruct the CR of the monsters in the MM you can see they accounted for it. Some things just aren't in the guidelines.

The LeShay's charm is very powerful (DC 24 is 5 over its base CR DC), it requires no action, and it affects all creatures within 30 feet. A move, misty step, or teleport and the LeShay could take out half the party without taking an action! Really the only thing I might change is increasing the range to 60 ft.

Not to mention Fey Touched is a nice boost too.

EDIT: FYI, you forgot the boost from Magic resistance in your CR calculation. The LeShay's defensive CR is 21, not 20.

I added a bonus action attack (LeShay Weapons), that takes the base CR to 20.5, then the charm bumps it to 21. Does that feel better?

I had originally planned to do this, but thought it was overkill. It didn't change the numbers to much so I am happy to add it back if you feel it is needed.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. The saving throw is made with disadvantage if the engulfed creature is reduced to 0 hit points by the attack.
