Multi-Attack Dawn makes 2 ranged attacks and then can choose any third action.

Claws Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (1d10 + 5) slashing damage.

Banished Rock Ranged Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 60 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (1d12 + 8) bludgeoning damage.

The orbs may be destroyed by attacking them. They have a ranged ac of 16, attacking them in melee results in an automatic hit. When destroyed, they exploded dealing damage in a 3x3 area, affecting all creatures and forcing all objects not attached securely to be thrown 20 ft. They last for 3 rounds, successively getting denser and deal 1d10 more damage each round. At the start of Dawns turn after 3 rounds have passed, they return to her healing for 40 hp per orb. If magic is used to attempt to destroy the orbs, it will instead give the orb 1 charge, causing it to return to Dawn pre-maturely.


The can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. The regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

1 action - Claw Attack

2 actions - Move Speed (May move without inciting attack of opportunity)

2 actions - Cancel Magical Effect (Magic Shroud)

The Guardian of the Eastern Dawn is a lithe construct of solid granite. Distinctly feminine and given a viscous visage, she is the terror or many who would seek to cause trouble during her vigil. She easily takes to the air and is surprisingly nimble and mobile.


The Guardian of the Eastern Dawn was created as a defender of the new day, an effigy of rebirth, protection and light. She protects the citadel from the various creatures of the night and those who would seek to bring conflict into her domain.

In combat, she will prefer to stay airborne and throw ranged attacks, only using the Collection Orbs to heal when below half her health. She will only use her Claw and Tail attacks when in desperate need. She acts in support of her counterpart, the Guardian of the Western Dusk. Dawn is active from sunset to sunrise each day, however, she may stay active for longer if engaged in a fight, but her energy will be rapidly drained with the awakening of Dusk.
