Primordial Rage (1/Day). When Dagon is reduced to half its maximum hit points (137 hit points) or less, he moves twice his land or swim speed and makes a claw attack against every opponent he passes within 10 feet.


Dagon can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. Dagon regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

Attack. Dagon makes one bite attack or one claw attack.
Tail (Costs 2 Actions). Dagon makes one attack with his tail.
Mental Assault (Costs 3 Actions). One creature within 30 feet of Dagon must succeed on a DC 19 Wisdom saving throw or take 21 (6d6) psychic damage and be stunned until the end of its next turn and frightened for 1 minute. An affected creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Father Dagon is a deep one that grew to enormous size of the countless millennia he lived. Though not a god himself, Dagon leads the deep ones together with his companion, Mother Hydra, and forms a divine triumvirate together with her and Cthulhu.
