Leadership (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). For 1 minute, the tanarukk can utter a special command or warning whenever a nonhostile creature that it can see within 30 feet of it makes an attack roll or a saving throw. The creature can add a d4 to its roll, provided it can hear and understand the tanarukk. A creature can benefit from only one Leadership die at a time. This effect ends if the tanarukk is incapacitated.


Parry. The tanarukk adds 4 to its AC against one melee attack that would hit it. To do so, the tanarukk must see the attacker and be wielding a melee weapon.

Command Ally. The tanarukk targets one nonhostile creature it can see within 30 feet of it. If the target can see and hear the tanarukk, the target can make one weapon attack as a reaction and gains advantage on the attack roll.
Frighten Foe (Costs 2 Actions). The tanarukk targets one hostile creature it can see within 30 feet of it. If the target can see and hear it, the target must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw with a DC equal to 8 + the great master's Charisma modifier + the great master's proficiency bonus or be frightened until the end of the great master's next turn.
