Wraithcannon (Recharge 5-6). The wraithguard fires an eldritch projectile at a point within 90 feet it can see. The projectile tears open an interplanar rift which occupies a 15-foot radius sphere centered on that point. Each creature which starts its turn within that area must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw, taking 33 (6d10) force damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. On a failed save, a creature’s movement speed is also halved until the end of its next turn.
The interplanar rift closes at the end of the wraithguard's next turn. Any creature that is still within the rift's area when it closes must succeed on a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw or be teleported to a random plane.

The wraithguard are ancient constructs manufactured by elves in their wars when all other solutions are closed. Foul necromancy, the wraithguard are formed from the souls of warriors fallen in combat, wearing a magical amulet similar to a phylactery. This amulet stores the warrior's soul and prevents his passing, and enables forgotten magic to fight again within this golem-like body. Moving slowly in a dream-like state, the Wraithguard are nonetheless terrifying combatants.

Otherworldly Weapons. Every wraithguard carries a wraithcannon, an eldritch weapon fuelled by the power of its wielder's spirit. These weapons tear open the fabric of reality itself, creating interplanar rifts which bombard those nearby with harmful cosmic energies. If a target survives the initial blast, they are not out of danger: the rift collapses after a few seconds, banishing anyone still inside to another part of the multiverse.
