A Pre-Searing Bestiary, Part 4

We’re just about done with the Pre-Searing bestiary. Today we’ve got the first half of the charr. Some people might find the charr shaman is pretty badly under-CR’d, and he kind of is. His CR reflects the fact that he is a pushover if you encounter him alone, but typically you’ll find him in a group with a couple of other charr, and he is a Hell of a force multiplier for them. GMs be advised.

Banish. Spell. The charr uses holy might to sear the target’s soul from this plane to the Mists. The target must make a DC 13 Wisdom save and takes 8 (1d10+3) radiant damage on a failed save, or half that on a success.

Infuse Health. Spell. The charr transfers half of his remaining health, rounded down, to any creature that he can see within 60 ft.

Bane Signet. Signet. The charr can cast this smite on one creature who has made an attack, before the attack is resolved. The attacking creature must make a DC 13 Wisdom save and takes 5 (1d10) radiant damage and is knocked prone if they fail their save, or half that without being knocked prone if they succeed.

Note: The bane signet is a consumable item. The charr shaman only has the one.
