A floormaster usually appears as a gigantic and disembodied humanoid hand of a jet black and slightly violet color, with sharpened nails. It crawls along the floors vile temples, corrupted ruins, or other structures filled with dark magic. Not needing to eat or even breathe, one these magically created creatures exists solely to assault invaders. A wallmaster maneuvers overground by crawling on its five huge fingers. When a foreign entity approaches, it usually ambushes them by turning a shade of green and flying towards it with a ferocious punching strike. In the rare event this doesn't kill the invader outright, the floormaster can assail with claw and gripping attacks. Some are even able to turn invisible, or split into smaller creatures known as mini floormasters.
Floormasters are related to wallmasters, and usually bear an almost identical appearance. Unlike a floormaster, a wallmaster sticks to ceilings and walls, and almost always attacks by dropping on its victims and teleporting them away. A wallmaster lacks the more robust combat abilities of a floormaster, and most floormasters lack the ability to teleport victims.
Variant: Invisible Floormaster
Particularly in areas of powerful dark magic, a floormaster can maintain constant invisibility. It gains the following trait:
Superior Invisibility. As a bonus action, the floormaster can magically turn invisible until its concentration ends (as if concentrating on a spell). Any equipment the floormaster wears or carries is invisible with it.
Variant: Splitting Floormaster
A powerful floormaster is able to split into smaller mini floormasters when it is endangered. It gains the following reaction:
Split into Mini Floormasters. After taking damage that isn't radiant damage nor from a critical hit, the floormaster can use its reaction to split into three mini floormasters with full hit points. Each of these creatures rolls separate initiative when it appears.
A floormaster can have both the Invisible Floormaster and Splitting Floormaster variants applied to it. Such a fearsome floormaster has a CR of 2 (450 XP), and the mini floormasters it creates retain its Superior Invisibility.
