Bog Stalker (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Medium monstrosity, chaotic evil
Presence. The bog stalker watches its enemies looking for a weakness to exploit. Whenever in line of sight of the monster, if a creature rolls lower than Presence (beginning at 1), The Stalker turns invisible for one turn and gains a free move and action against that creature. The Presence counter resets.
Horrific Appearance. A bog stalker usually keeps some aspect from its origin. If created from something in the monster list, choose and add a feature at random from the original monster.
Follow Up Strike. If the Stalker hits the same target twice in one round, then the second strike always crits.
Multiattack. The stalker makes two attacks with its claws.
Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) slashing damage.
Insightful Presence. Each combat, the Bog Stalker has a presence counter, starting at 1. Each round, the Bog Stalker gains +1 to presence.
A bog stalker is both beast and plant, due to its creation. Typically, a bog stalker is created by a Swamp Witch, who captures animals and forces her malformed plants to grow inside the animal. Thus, the bog stalker is formed and ready to defend its witch from intruders. Bog stalkers are usually formed with bamboo or other tree plants for legs, and stand 8 or more feet tall. Bog stalkers are considered kings of the swamp and rarely if ever attack alone.
