Keen Smell. The venom troll has advantage on Perception checks that rely on smell.

Maneuvers. The venom troll uses maneuvers (maneuver save Difficulty 15). It has 14 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: grapple, inject venom, spring attack, swipe, tear flesh

2 stamina dice: tear tendon

Poison Splash. When the venom troll takes damage of any type but psychic, each creature within 1 meter of the venom troll takes 9 (2d8) poison damage.

Regeneration. The venom troll regains 10 health at the start of each of its turns. While the venom troll is able to regenerate, it does not become wounded or incapacitated as a result of regaining health. If the venom troll takes acid or fire damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the venom troll’s next turn. The venom troll dies only if it starts its turn with 0 health and doesn’t regenerate.

Actions (3)

Bite (1/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) piercing damage.

Claws (2/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) poison damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a Difficulty 16 Fortitude saving throw or become poisoned for 1 minute. The poisoned target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Venom Spray (Recharge 5–6). The venom troll slices itself with a claw, releasing a spray of poison in a 5-meter cone or line. The venom troll takes 7 (2d6) slashing damage (this damage can’t be reduced in any way). Each creature in the area must make a Difficulty 16 Fortitude saving throw. On a failure, a creature takes 49 (11d8) poison damage and is poisoned for 1 minute. On a success, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t poisoned. A poisoned creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.
