Electrified Body. The windhusk's melee attacks deal 2d6 extra lightning damage (included in the attacks). Any creature that begins its turn grappling the windhusk takes 6 (2d6) lightning damage.

Stench. Any creature that starts its turn within 5 feet of the windhusk must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned until the start of its next turn. On a successful saving throw, the creature is immune to the windhusk's Stench for 24 hours.

Turning Defiance. The windhusk and any regular windhusks within 30 feet of it have advantage on saving throws against effects that turn undead.


Multiattack. The windhusk makes two Bite attacks. It can substitute either of these for a Thunderclap.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d8 + 3) piercing damage + 6 (2d6) lightning damage.

Thunderclap. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 20/40 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d10) thunder damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be deafened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat this saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success.

Lightning Wind Blast (Recharge 6). The windhusk exhales electrified winds in a 60-ft. cone. Every creature in that area must make a DC 16 Strength saving throw or take 16 (3d10) lightning damage + 16 (3d10) bludgeoning damage and be pushed 30 ft. away from the windhusk. On a successful save, a creature takes half as much damage and is pushed 15 ft. away.


Wind Puff. Whenever the windhusk is hit by a melee attack, the attacker must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be pushed 10 ft. away from the windhusk.

A tougher variety of windhusk, a windhusk stormborn must be created from a humanoid corpse that has been struck by lightning or electrified by other means. This powerful storm energy lies dormant in the windhusk's inflated lungs, where it crackles across the creature's pale flesh, creating a sulfury smell on top of its existing funk of death. Its eyes in particular blaze with bright blue electricity. In addition to its usual wind blasts, a windhusk stormborn can create deafening thunder from the clap of its hands. The wind blasts themselves are now imbued with arching electricity, and the resulting winds resemble lightning bolts more than anything else.

Undead Nature. A windhusk stormborn doesn't require food, drink, air, or sleep.
