Regeneration. If he’s has at least one hit point left, Rhuobhe regains 10 hit points at the start of his turn.


Multiattack. Rhuobhe uses his Frightful Presence. He then makes three attacks with Hearthspiller or Winged Death

Hearthspiller. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, range 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8+4) slashing damage plus 16 (3d10) necrotic damage. If Rhuobhe scores a critical hit, he gains 16 (3d10) temporary hit points.

Frightful Presence. Each creature of Rhuobhe’s choice that is within 120 feet of him and aware of him must succeed on a DC 18 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the 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 Rhuobhe’s Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.


Rhuobhe 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. Rhuobhe regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

On initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), Rhuobhe takes a lair action to cause one of the following effects; Rhuobhe can't use the same effect two rounds in a row:

• Rhuobhe chooses a point he can see within the lair. Plants erupt from the ground in a 20-foot radius surrounding that point, creating difficult terrain. Any creatures in the area at the start of their turn, or who enter the area for the first time on a turn, must make a successful DC 15 Dexterity saving throw or become restrained by the vines and take 13 (3d8) poison damage. A creature can be freed if it or an adjacent ally uses an action to make a successful DC 15 Strength check. This effect lasts until the Rhuobhe uses this lair action again, or dies.

• Rhuobhe magically marks a target he can see within 120 feet. Rhuobhe has advantage on attack rolls against the marked target. The mark lasts until initiative count 20 on the following turn.

• Rhuobhe targets one creature within 60 feet of him and assails its mind with visions of hopelessness and despair. The creature must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw or be stunned until initiative count 20 on the next round.

Equipment. Glaivebreaker (plate +2), Anger's Turning (shield +2), Heartspiller (longsword of life stealing), Winged Death (longbow +2)

Looks good. But then I don't play 5th edition. Perhaps this should go on the wiki?
