Half-Celestial (5e Template)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


A creature touched by powerful good can occasionally become a half-celestial, though powerful holy magic can cause an ordinary mortal to become a half-celestial. Most are good, like celestials tend to be, while evil half-celestials, like evil celestials, are incredibly rare. Regardless of origins, a half-celestial tends to look supernaturally beautiful, though like most celestials, a half-celestial is a beacon of hope as often as it is a herald of doom.

CR Calculation[edit]

Recalculate the creature's CR with the following considerations:

  • Resistance to poison and radiant damage.
  • Damage-per-round, AC, and effective AC may increase (from Spellcasting).
