Aggressive. As a bonus action, the graug can move up to its speed toward a hostile creature that it can see.

Keen Smell. The graug has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.

Rampage. When the graug reduces a creature to 0 hit points with a melee attack on its turn, the graug can take a bonus action to move up to half its speed and make a claw attack.

Reckless. At the start of its turn, the graug can gain advantage on all melee weapon attack rolls it makes during that turn, but attack rolls against it have advantage until the start of its next turn.

Savage Appetite. Each time the graug kills a Large or smaller creature with its bite, it regains 25 hit points. If the graug is at full health, it instead gains 25 temporary hit points.

Seige Monster. The graug deals double damage to objects and structures.

Trampling Form. When the graug moves, any Large or smaller creature whose square it moves though must succeed a DC 20 Strength or Dexterity saving throw or be pushed 5 ft. away and knocked prone.

ACTIONS

Multiattack. The graug makes two melee attacks: one with its stomp and one with its slam, two with its claws, or one with its claws and one with its bite, if the target is a Large or smaller creature.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +X to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: X (2d12 + 7) slashing damage. If the target is a Large or smaller creature, it is grappled.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +X to hit, reach 5 ft., one grappled target. Hit: X (4d12 + 7) piercing damage. If a Large or smaller creature is reduced to 0 hit points, the target is dies and is mutilated (ex: the graug may bite its head off).

Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +X to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: X (2d12 + 7) bludgeoning damage. Each Large or smaller creature, including the original target, within a 5 foot radius of the slam must succeed a DC 18 Strength or Dexterity saving throw or take X (6d12 + 7) bludgeoning damage and be knocked prone. On a successful save, the creature takes half damage and is pushed 5 feet away rather than knocked prone. The original target of the slam has disadvantage on the save.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +X to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: X (4d12 + 7) bludgeoning damage. Each Large or smaller creature, including the original target, within a 5 foot radius of the slam must succeed a DC 18 Strength or Dexterity saving throw or take X (4d12 + 7) bludgeoning damage and be knocked prone. On a successful save, the creature takes half damage and is pushed 5 feet away rather than knocked prone. The original target of the slam has disadvantage on the save.


Graugs are ancient beasts that almost resemble oversized hybrids of trolls and ogres: they grow upwards of 15 feet or more in height, with massive, muscular arms, far longer than their short legs, tipped in vicious claws, and covered in armor-plated scales, occasionally growing into horns and spines. These beasts are known for their savagery, great strength, and voracious appetite, willing to eat anything they can get their claws on, including humanoids. Interestingly, upon death, a graug immediately dries out completely and crumbles into ash.

Varients:Elemental and Wretched Graugs

Elemental graugs are various species of graugs with resistance to certain elements. Each variant is additionally found in different environments. Flame graugs are found in volcanic regions and have resistance to fire damage, frost graugs in tundras and cold mountains and have resistance to cold damage, and poison graugs are found in jungles and have resistance to poison damage.

Wretched graugs are horribly mutated individuals spawned from the overconsumption of toxic items, in particular creatures with strong biles. Such graugs are covered in patches of green fur, additional horns, tumors across their bodies, and an enormous sac on their throat. A wretched graug has the following actions:

Vomit. The graug can spit horrible, acidic vomit and uses one of the following actions to do so:

Projectile Vomit (Recharges 5-6). The graug sprays projectile vomit in a 60-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 18 Dexterity saving throw, taking X (6d8 + 7) acid damage and X (6d8 + 7) poison damage on a failed save and is poisoned for 1 minute. On a successful save, the target takes half damage and is not poisoned. Any explosive materials hit by the vomit combust and explode. Whenever the gruag uses this action, it takes 10 damage.

Vomit Ring (Recharges 5-6). The graug spits vomit in a 5-foot radius around it. Each creature within that radius must succeed a DC 18 Constitution saving throw each time they begin their turn within the radius. On a failed save, the target takes takes X (6d8 + 7) acid damage and X (6d8 + 7) and is poisoned for 1 minute. On a successful save, the creature takes half damage and is not poisoned.
