Minion (5e Template)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Meant to replicate the 4e minion monster role, minions focus on quantity over quality. They specialize in disposable, front-line combat and group in large numbers to overwhelm the player characters. They're vulnerable to just about everything and are usually encountered in large groups.


Any creature, hereafter referred to as the "base creature."


Hit Points. The minion has only 1 hit point.


Resilience. A missed attack never damages the minion. Additionally, if the minion is subjected to an effect that allows it to make a saving throw to take only half damage, the minion instead takes no damage on a successful save.

CR Calculation[edit]

A minion is worth one-tenth the experience of the base creature (round down).
