Leadership (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). For 1 minute, the gnath can utter a special command or warning whenever a nonhostile creature that it can see within 30 feet of it makes an attack roll or a saving throw. The creature can add a d4 to its roll provided it can hear and understand the gnath. A creature can benefit from only one Leadership die at a time. This effect ends if the gnath is incapacitated.
While most gnath are the size of goblins or halflings, one in a thousand grows to be as large and robust as a dwarf. These abnormally large gnath serve as overseers for units of lesser gnath, leading them into battle and serving as conduits for the Overmind’s will.
