Languages Grung

Amphibious. The grung wildling can breathe air and water.

Grung Poison. Grung poison loses its potency 1 minute after being removed from the grung wildling. A similar breakdown occurs if the grung wildling dies. A creature poisoned by the grung wildling can suffer an additional effect that varies depending on the grung wildling’s skin color. This effect lasts until the creature is no longer poisoned by the grung wildling.

  • Red. The poisoned creature must use its actions to eat if food is within reach.

Poisonous Skin. Any creature that grapples the grung wildling or otherwise comes into direct contact with the grung wildling’s skin must succeed on a Difficulty 12 Fortitude saving throw or become poisoned for 1 minute. A poisoned creature no longer in direct contact with the grung wildling can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Spellcasting. The grung wildling uses Primal (Wis) to cast spells (spell save Difficulty 12, +3 to hit with spell attacks). It has 2 mana, a mana limit of 1, regains all expended mana when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total mana when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following spells:

Cantrips (at will): druidcraft, shillelagh, thorn bola, thorn whip

1 mana: barkskin, ensnare, ensnaring strike, goodberry, locate plants, protection from poison, regrowth, vine lash

Standing Leap. The grung wildling’s jump is always treated as if it has a running start.

As an action, you whisper to the spirits of nature to create one of the following effects within 5 meters:

  • You create a tiny, harmless sensory effect that predicts what the weather will be at your location for the next 24 hours. The effect might manifest as a golden orb for clear skies, a cloud for rain, falling snowflakes for snow, and so on. This effect persists for 1 round.
  • You instantly make a flower blossom, a seed pod open, or a leaf bud bloom.
  • You create an instantaneous, harmless sensory effect, such as falling leaves, a puff of wind, the sound of a small animal, or the faint odor of skunk. The effect must fit in a 1-meter cube.
  • You instantly light or snuff out a candle, a torch, or a small campfire.
5 minutes

As an action, the wood of a club or a quarterstaff you are holding is imbued with nature’s power for the duration. The weapon becomes magical, if it isn’t already.

The spell ends if you dismiss it on your turn (no action required), if you cast it again, or if you end your turn without the club or quarterstaff in your hand.

5 minutes/mana

Creature. A creature within 20 meters of you must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be pulled up to 5 meters toward you. A Large or larger creature has advantage on this saving throw. If the creature is willing, it can allow itself to be pulled.

Unattended Object. An unattended object within 20 meters of you is pulled up to 5 meters towards you; if this moves it into your square, you may grasp the item, although you must have a free hand to do so.

Surface. If you target an immovable object within 20 meters of you such as an object bolted to the floor, a building wall, floor, or ceiling, you can move up to 10 meters towards the target. If you end your movement at a climbable location, such as a wall or ledge, you can attempt an Athletics check to grab hold, or pull yourself over the edge in the case of a ledge. If you fail that check you begin falling. You can move yourself up to 10 meters as an action on your turn.

If you pull yourself towards a surface while being grappled, any creature that is grappling you must make a Brawn check against your spell save Difficulty.

On a success, the creature can choose to prevent you from moving or to be pulled along with you. A creature cannot be pulled along with you if it is larger than you.

On a failure, the creature must let go of the grapple.

You can cause the vines to release at any time (no action required by you). They retract instantly.

The vines are flammable. Any vines exposed to fire burn away in 1 round.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana as a reaction, which you use when you or a creature within 10 meters of you falls. Vines lash out to a solid surface within 10 meters, or the falling creature, and lower you or the creature up to 20 meters from the point of attachment toward the ground.

  • Soaring Vines. You can expend 1 additional mana so the vines can attach themselves to your torso, leaving your arms and legs unhindered. The vines automatically attach to solid surfaces (such as a building, a wall, or a tree) or other plants at least 3 meters above you and within 10 meters of you and shift with you, growing and retracting as you move from surface to surface. If any of the vines are destroyed, a new vine immediately grows to take its place.

    For the duration, as long as you are within 10 meters of a solid surface or other plants that is at least 3 meters above you, you have a flying speed of 10 meters, which can’t be reduced by nonmagical means. Additionally, you have advantage on saving throws made against effects that would push or pull you. When the spell ends, if you are near a solid surface or other plants, the vines gently lower you to the ground as they shrivel away.
