Monstrous and powerful, these parasites devour the life of a planet before sending their spawn to repeat the process.



Towering high above the largest mundane towers, this monster appears to be little more than a spiked shell. But at one point near the ground, there is an eye with three hinged eyelids. This eye is filled with a chaotic swirl of colours around a single black point that seems to stare into your soul...

Lavos Tactics[edit]

Lavos opens every battle with a Lavos Scream followed by Destruction Rains from The Heavens. If an enemy appears in its line of sight it uses Disintegration Beam during its next turn. It will use Chaotic Zone when an enemy gets close, but isn't in sight of the Destruction Beam. At every opportunity it will use Lavos Needle against one enemy, and if it has Destruction Rains from the Heavens, it will use it again. When it cannot use any other form of attack, it will use Earthquake or Lavos Scream. While it is in battle it will not move.

Lavos Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful Arcana check.

DC 30: Lavoses are called planet parasites. Their only weakness is the eye resting somewhere near the middle of their shell. They rise only to reproduce, and scour their planet's surface to ensure protection for their offspring.

DC 40: Lavoses absorb the power of the people of the planet in which they reside. How they use it is unknown, but it is believed that a Lavos shares this power with its eventual offspring.

DC 50: In the strangest of legends, it is said that there is another creature inside the shell, that is even more powerful.

Encounter Groups[edit]

Lavos only attacks upon rising from the ground to begin its reproductive cycle. There is only ever one per planet.
