Eldrazi (Orizon Supplement)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Eldrazi are massive entities that exist in the areas beyond what mortals define as planes, they travel these blind eternities in their endless drive to consume, they hunt mana, the source of magic, invade a plane, destroy what remains and consume all. Their motives are unknowable beyond their endless hunger. To these creatures, the breaking on Orizon was almost a beacon, a shining explosion of delicious mana. Even now some occasionally make the attempt to break into the world, hoping to feast on its rich magic. The gods and fiends converted the plane's border into the battlefield, an endless field of war where souls of warriors and soldiers prepare to beat back the next incursion of the Eldrazi.

Eldrazi titans are the only "true" eldrazi, all others simply appear as a result of the titan's presence, appearing as a precursor to the titan's arrival by its sheer reality-altering non-physical mass, and ceasing to exist on its departure, consumed for their residual energies. If spawn appear, it means that a titan's arrival in a physical form is imminent.

Variant: Spawn Diversity[edit]

Though there are some similarities in the numerous varied spawns of the eldrazi titans they are simply far too weird to be easily categorized.

You may use the statistics of other creatures in the monster manual to represent spawn, drones, and eldrazi. You may add the abilities listed for the eldrazi (such as tentacles or annihilator) to the statistics of other creatures or you may add or replace a creature’s (including an Eldrazi’s) abilities with the following.

- Eldrazi are immune to psychic damage and the charmed condition. - Some Eldrazi have no eyes; they are immune to the blinded condition and have blindsight to a range of 30 feet. - Some lesser spawn act as extensions of the titans’ hunger. Change the damage type of such a monster’s attacks to acid, necrotic or annihilator damage. - Some Eldrazi have a Life Drain ability similar to that of a wight. - Some Eldrazi are responsible for the creation of new spawn. Such a drone might have an ability akin to the red slaad’s claw attack, implanting a nascent Esuriiten spawn in the host’s body. - More powerful Eldrazi can consume spawn and use them as fuel for their own abilities. The Eldrazi or titan destroys a spawn within 5 feet of it and either regains 10 hit points or regains the use of a single ability as though it had finished a long rest.

You may also choose to change the consequences of the annihilator ability or consume attacks, that the target be petrified instead of disintegrated.

Variant: Eldrazi as Innate Spellcasters[edit]

Eldrazi are inherently magical beings, as they enter a realm they could learn its magics before consuming them.

An eldrazi can innately cast a number of spells equal to the total of all its ability modifiers. These spells require no material components. The eldrazi’s bonus to hit with spell attacks is equal to its proficiency bonus + its Charisma or Intelligence modifier. The eldrazi’s spell save DC equals 8 + its proficiency bonus + its Charisma or Intelligence modifier.

Frightful Presence Each creature of the Eldrazi Titan's choice within 120 ft and aware of it must succeed on a DC 21 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, with disadvantage if the Eldrazi Titan is within line of sight, ending the effect on itself on a success. If the creature's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the Eldrazi Titan's Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Eldrazi titans are the only true eldrazi, the only ones that exist beyond the mortal forms that are constructed upon entrance to a physical plane. They are intelligent and can exact total control over their brood with eerie precision. But their intelligence is subsided beneath their hunger, they seek to consume, to sate their hunger for some unknown purpose, even other eldrazi can be made victim to their hunger. The eldrazi titan seeks out worlds, the more magically potent the more desirable, then they go to consume all. The closer they approach to a world, the more of their spawn that appear, then when the titan is done, they consume their spawn. Some suppose they exist as the antithesis to life, some that they will evolve into something greater once all else has been eaten.

These eldrazi, built in the form of something resembling a creature, with no rhyme or reason to their form. Their outline appears to writhe and shift, twisting and thrashing as the mass they are built of shifts and adjusts. These creatures are dumb, driven solely by the all encompassing hunger that fills them as it fills the titan they spawned from.

The second stage of an eldrazi incursion, composed of a writhing mass of the spawn that fused together to form it, these beings seek to consume and to expand their numbers, finally fusing themselves to form the greatest precursors, the eldrazi.

The eldrazi spawn is the weakest among the eldrazi brood, the weakest of the issue that emerges from the titans. But their terror is their ability to completely sacrifice themselves for the advancement of the Eldrazi, enough of these beasts can quickly become an army of foul aberrations, eventually consuming entire realities and destroying all before them for the service of their dread parentage.
