Devil’s Sight. Magical darkness doesn’t impede the osyluth’s darkvision.

Magic Resistance. The osyluth has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Maneuvers. The osyluth uses maneuvers (maneuver save Difficulty 16). It has 17 stamina dice which are d8s, a dice limit of 3, regains all expended stamina dice when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total stamina dice when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following maneuvers:

1 stamina die: nimble, positioning strike, slashing blades, spring attack, step of the wind, swipe, tear flesh, vault

2 stamina dice: frenzy, tear tendon, uncanny dodge

Actions (3)

Claw (2/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 2 m. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) slashing damage.

Sting (1/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 2 m. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) piercing damage plus 17 (5d6) poison damage and the target must succeed on a Difficulty 16 Fortitude saving throw or become poisoned for 1 minute. The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Summon Devil (1/long rest). The osyluth has a 40 percent chance of summoning 2d6 spinagons or one osyluth. A summoned devil appears in an unoccupied space within 10 meters of the osyluth, acts as its ally, and can’t summon other devils. It remains for 1 minute, until it or the osyluth dies, or until the osyluth dismisses it on its turn (no action required).

Maneuvers

As a reaction, which you use when an enemy moves within 1 meter of you, you can move up to half your speed without provoking opportunity attacks.

As an action, make a weapon attack to knock the creature off balance with your blow.

On a hit, add the stamina die to the attack’s damage and if the creature is your size or smaller, it must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or you move into the creature’s space, and it moves 1 meter in a direction you choose.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, add half as much damage.

Enhance

You can increase the damage and target a creature of a larger size for each additional stamina die expended.

If the target is Large, you can occupy any space that it left. You cannot use this maneuver if you or the target would end up sharing the same space as another creature or terrain such as a wall.

As an action, you can use the Dash action. During your Dash, if you move within 1 meter of a creature, you can make a melee weapon attack against that creature. You can only attack one creature you pass.

Enhance

You can attack an additional creature you pass for each additional stamina die expended, but you can only attack each creature once.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Enhance

1 minute/stamina die

As an action, make a melee weapon attack with a natural weapon that deals piercing or slashing damage to tear the creature’s tendon.

On a hit, add one stamina die to the attack’s damage and the creature must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or it is slowed 1 for the duration and while affected it loses health equal to one of the stamina dice for every meter it travels. This has no effect on any creature that cannot bleed or lose a vital liquid substance.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, add half as much damage.

The creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Enhance

You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended and the slowed level by 1 for every two additional stamina die expended.

As a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack that you can see or when you make a Reflex saving throw, you spin gracefully away, avoiding the swing or effect. You make the roll with advantage or the attack against you is made with disadvantage. You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

If the roll already has advantage or disadvantage, you cannot apply another instance of advantage or disadvantage and you must use this before the roll to cancel out any advantage or disadvantage.
