Fiend Folio: Crypt Thing for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition




A pale, solitary skeletal being which always wears a brown, hooded robe, the crypt thing stays in its lair permanently (at least, none have been encountered elsewhere) and will not attack if it is left undisturbed.

Its special power is its unfailing ability to cast an improved form of a teleportation spell on a party.

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. 
Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) slashing damage.


Banish (Recharge 6). As an action, the crypt thing attempts to teleport each creature within 30' in a random direction. The targets must make  DC 13 Constitution saving throws or be teleported 1000'. Roll a d6 for each target to determine the direction they are teleported: A roll of 1 is north, 2 is east, 3 is south, 4 is west, 5 is one dungeon level above their current location, or a 6 is one dungeon level below their current level.
   If any of the targets would arrive in a place already occupied by an object or a creature, the target will take 4d6 force damage.
