Commander Warbot (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Medium construct, unaligned
Saving Throws Dex +6, Int +10, Wis +7
Mekhaus Loyalty. The warbot is immune to all effects that assume control over others in any way.
Personal Shield. At the start of fight warbot gains 100 temporary hit points, without any of its damage resistances and immunities.
Leading AI. The warbot is linked to all of his soldiers at the same time, as well as with any other commanders assigned to its operating group and Serl the Linkmaster. While alive, all his soldiers can communicate what they see and think despite physical obstacles between them and act as one in battle. If commander is destroyed, another one connects to unlinked warbots, leading them in place of the former one. This ability has unlimited range, stopped only by crystal spheres and being placed in another plane of existence. Link to Serl is always up.
Eager to Die. Despite ability to lead warbots from safe distance, their AI is programmed to personally participate in any bigger battle or campaign. When commander dies, all his gained knowledge and experience is sent up link, sharing with all other commanders.
Multiattack. The warbot makes two overload attacks, then it uses its command ally.
Overload. Ranged Spell: Target makes DC 18 intelligence saving throw, taking 16 (2d10+5) psychic damage and 11 (d12+5) lightning damage on failed save, or half as much on a successful one.
Command ally. Commander chooses any warbot under its command and compells it to immediately take one action of commander's choice.
Warbots are exactly what they are named: bots made for war. Commanders are the most intelligent of creations in army of Aeris Mekhaus. Cunning, swift and precise, these machines excel at leading groups of simple warbots in fight, and their link allows them to share data with others, gaining even more superiority in battle. That being said, they are still devoid of soul, so no creativity can be expected from them, and on great scale of war their tactics are simply not enough, thus their link is connected to Serl the Linkmaster, and through him to Mekhaus for control.
