Siege Monster. The esophagullet deals double damage to objects and structures.

Relentless (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). If the esophagullet takes 20 damage or less that would reduce it to 0 hit points, it is reduced to 1 hit point instead.


Multiattack. The esophagullet makes one attack claw and one fork attack. It can replace either one with a swallow.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (3d6 + 2) piercing damage plus 12 (3d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 15).

Fork. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 25 (5d8 + 3) piercing damage.

Swallow. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (5d6 + 1) piercing damage and the target is swallowed. While swallowed, the creature is blinded and restrained, it has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the esophagullet, and it takes 14 (4d6) acid damage plus 14 (4d6) piercing damage at the start of each of the esophagullet's turns.
If the esophagullet takes 20 damage or more on a single turn from a creature inside it, the esophagullet must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw at the end of that turn or regurgitate all swallowed creatures, which fall prone in a space within 10 feet of the esophagullet. If the esophagullet dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained by it and can escape from the corpse by using 5 feet of movement.

The majority of an esophagullet's body is dominated by its cavernous stomach, and its zealous appetite can never be sated for long. Powerful digestive enzymes and internal grinding mechanisms pulverize most material into a fine slurry almost as quickly as the beast can ingest it, the bulk of which is expelled in a great geyser from its cranial sphincter. What it cannot swallow whole, it tears apart with its monstrously strong claws, smashes into rubble with its sheer bulk or corrodes to slimy chunks in a torrent of bile.
An uninhibited esophagullet is a terrifying force of destruction to face in combat, eating its way through living beings, carrion, garbage, architecture and typically some portion of the natural landscape with equal ease and incomparable relish. With surprisingly minimal nutritive demands, the esophagullet's voracious rampage is driven more by the simple pleasure of consumption than by genuine hunger, an insatiable drive interrupted only when the monster at last wears itself out and succumbs to sleep.
The esophagullet constantly emits a whooping bellow somewhere between laughter and weeping, briefly muffled as it shovels more "food" into its jabbering maw.
