Multiattack. The glavenus makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its tail. It can’t make both attacks against the same target.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 29 (4d10 + 7) piercing damage. If the target is medium of smaller, it is grappled (escape DC 20). Until the grapple ends, the target is restrained and the glavenus can’t use its bite attack against another target.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 20 ft., one target. Hit: 24 (3d10 + 7) bludgeoning damage and 16 (3d10) slashing damage.

Special Attack (Recharge 5-6). The glavenus makes one of the following special attacks.

Tail Blast. The glavenus swings its tail, releasing a blast of flame. Each creature in a 60-foot cone must make a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw, taking 45 (10d8) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. In addition, each creature within that cone that is also within 20 feet of the glavenus takes 24 (3d10 + 7) bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Spitfire. The glavenus spits a fireball at a point within 90 feet it can see. Each creature within a 20-foot radius of that point must make a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw, taking 36 (8d8) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


The fearsome glavenus prowls craggy foothills, primordial jungles and foetid caverns alike in search of its next meal. With its fiery breath and wicked tail, this brutish therapod devastates prey and rivals alike.

Infernal Tyrants. A glavenus resembles a horned, heavily-armoured tyrannosaur with a short snout and an exceptionally long tail. Rows of forward-raking spikes run down its back, and its mouth is surrounded by bony plates that not only protect its teeth but dig into its prey to keep them from escaping.

Like certain dragons, a glavenus can breathe fire. The bases of its dorsal spikes and the back of its throat glow when it prepares to unleash its fiery breath. When faced with rivals, the glavenus will open its mouth wide and roar, exposing this hellish glow in an effort to scare off its competitors.

Natural Blade. A glavenus’s deadliest weapon is not its mighty jaws or its scorching breath, though they are undeniably formidable. It is the beast’s long and muscular tail which is the true threat. The tail has a sharp metallic edge like the blade of a sword, and with it a glavenus can easily cleave its foes in twain or crush them flat.

The glavenus’s tail blade has flintlike properties that make it incredibly hot when scraped across a hard surface. The creature is well aware of this trait, and can exploit it to set the air in its vicinity ablaze, creating a deadly blast of heat even hotter than its own breath.
