Multiattack. The mummy can use its Dreadful Glare and makes one attack with its rotting claws.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 3) piercing damage.

Rotting Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) slashing damage plus 10 (3d6) necrotic damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or be cursed with mummy rot. The cursed target can't regain hit points, and its hit point maximum decreases by 10 (3d6) for every 24 hours that elapse. If the curse reduces the target's hit point maximum to 0, the target dies, and its body turns to dust. The curse lasts until removed by the remove curse spell or other magic.

Dreadful Glare. The mummy targets one creature it can see within 60 feet of it. If the target can see the mummy, it must succeed on a DC 10 Wisdom saving throw against this magic or become frightened until the end of the mummy's next turn. If the target fails the saving throw by 5 or more, it is also paralyzed for the same duration. A target that succeeds on the saving throw is immune to the Dreadful Glare of all mummies (but not mummy lords) for the next 24 hours.


Rampage. When the mummy reduces a creature to 0 hit points with a melee attack on its turn, the mummy can move up to half its speed and make a bite attack.


Counter Attack. If the mummy takes damage from a melee attack, it makes one bite attack against the attacker.

Gnolls aren't known for making any kind of funerary arrangements for their dead beyond simply eating them as they would any other corpse, let alone the kind of extensive embalming process required to create a mummy. The fact that gnoll mummies exist at all is rather remarkable then, as it suggests that the gnolls for whatever reason didn't want to simply consume this particular individual and indeed wished to pay their respects.
