Elemental Demise. If the djinni dies, its body disintegrates into a warm breeze, leaving behind only equipment the djinni was wearing or carrying.

Spellcasting. The djinni uses Primal (Cha) to cast spells (spell save Difficulty 17, +9 to hit with spell attacks). It has 11 mana, a mana limit of 2, regains all expended mana when it finishes a long rest and regains half its total mana (rounded up) when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following spells:

At will: detect evil and good, detect magic, gust of wind

Cantrips (at will, 14th-level spellcaster): gust

1 mana: averting gust, cyclone, feather fall, fog cloud, gale cloak, hover, levitate, steal breath, updraft, warding winds, whispering wind, winged flight, zephyr strike

2 mana: air bubble, animate air, control winds, dust devil, hypoxia, wind wall

3/day each: comprehend languages (augmented to tongues), create food and water (can create wine instead of water)

1/day each: gaseous form, image (augmented to major image), invisibility, plane shift (self only)

Variant: Genie Powers. Genies have a variety of magical capabilities, including spells. A few have even greater powers that allow them to alter their appearance or the nature of reality.

Disguises. Some genies can veil themselves in illusion to pass as other similarly shaped creatures. Such genies can innately cast the disguise spell at will, often with a longer duration than is normal for that spell.

Wishes. The genie power to grant wishes is legendary among mortals. Only the most potent genies, such as those among the nobility, can do so. A particular genie that has this power can grant one to three wishes to a creature that isn’t a genie. Once a genie has granted its limit of wishes, it can’t grant wishes again for some amount of time (usually 1 year), and cosmic law dictates that the same genie can expend its limit of wishes on a specific creature only once in that creature’s existence.

To be granted a wish, a creature within 10 meters of the genie states a desired effect to it. The genie can then cast the wish spell on the creature’s behalf to bring about the effect. Depending on the genie’s nature, the genie might try to pervert the intent of the wish by exploiting the wish’s poor wording. The perversion of the wording is usually crafted to be to the genie’s benefit.

Actions (3)

Scimitar. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 1 m. Hit: 12 (2d6 + 5) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) concussion or lightning (djinni’s choice) damage.

Dagger. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 1 m. or range 3/10 m. Hit: 10 (2d4 + 5) piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) concussion or lightning (djinni’s choice) damage.

Create Whirlwind (1/turn). A 1-meter radius, 5-meter-tall cylinder of swirling air magically forms on a point the djinni can see within 20 meters of it. The whirlwind lasts as long as the djinni maintains concentration (as if concentrating on a spell). Any creature but the djinni that enters the whirlwind must succeed on a Difficulty 17 Reflex saving throw or be restrained by it. The djinni can move the whirlwind up to 10 meters as an action, and creatures restrained by the whirlwind move with it. The whirlwind ends if the djinni loses sight of it.

A creature can use an action to free a creature restrained by the whirlwind, including itself, by succeeding on a Difficulty 17 Brawn check. If the check succeeds, the creature is no longer restrained and moves to the nearest space outside the whirlwind.


No concoctions, maneuvers, or spells

All creatures in this system should have maneuvers or spells. You should add some maneuvers or spells to this creature. If you do so, please make a suggestion on github so I can finish adding maneuvers and spells to all creatures via
