Geovishap (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Large dragon, unaligned
Armor Class 15 (natural armor)
Saving Throws Str +8, Con +8
Elemental Infusion. Once the geovishap is reduced to half its hit points or fewer, the geovishap infuses itself with whatever damage type other than bludgeoning, piercing or slashing is most evident in its surroundings, including topography, weather, and magic. The geovishap deals an extra 5 (1d10) damage of that type to any creature it hits with a melee weapon attack. Additionally, it gains immunity to that damage type.
Jump. The geovishap jumps up to 30 feet twice. After each jump, it makes one attack with its claws. The geovishap has advantage on both of these attacks, but all attacks made against it until the start of its next turn also have advantage.
Charge. The geovishap moves up to 20 feet without provoking opportunity attacks, then makes two attacks with its claws.
Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d10 + 5) slashing damage.
Stone Spikes (Recharge 6). The geovishap shoots stone spines in a 20-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw, taking 18 (4d8) piercing damage on a failed save or half as much damage on a successful one.
Crystallize. If the geovishap takes damage of a type other than bludgeoning, piercing or slashing, it gains resistance to that damage type for 1 minute or until it uses this reaction again. The triggering attack still deals its original damage.
Geovishaps can be found in any mountainous or hilly region, regardless of environment. They are large reptiles that look slightly ape-like in stature and size, except for their varying shades of brown and gray that resemble rock or uneven earth which cause the untrained eye to confuse one with a large boulder. They are also said to be descendants of dragons, though no zoologist has confirmed this. Geovishaps are solitary predators that only come into contact with other geovishaps to mate. Their eggs are roughly two feet tall and cannot be told apart from a normal rock. They feed on any horse-sized animals, relying on their speed and endurance to outrun and catch their prey. Given their wide range of habitats, geovishaps have become accustomed to eating any creatures big enough to satisfy their hunger, including humans. While geovishaps are extremely well adapted to chasing down their prey over long distances, they always return to their den. Geovishap dens are typically just small caves or other such shelters, where they would rest and where a female might raise her young.
