Spellcasting. The deathlock wight’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 13, +5 to hit with spell attacks). It has 6 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:

At will: detect magic, disguise, mage armor

Cantrips (at will): grave rot, life siphon

1 mana: absorb spirit, fear, life drain, shadow tendrils, teleport

Sunlight Sensitivity. While in sunlight, the wight has disadvantage on attack rolls, as well as on Perception checks that rely on sight.

Actions (2)

Grave Bolt. Ranged Spell Attack: +5 to hit, range 36 m. Hit: 4 (1d8) necrotic damage.

Life Drain (1/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 1 m. Hit: 9 (2d6 + 2) necrotic damage. The target must succeed on a DC 13 Fortitude saving throw or its maximum health is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its maximum health to 0.

A humanoid slain by this attack rises 24 hours later as a zombie under the wight’s control, unless the humanoid is restored to life or its body is destroyed. The wight can have no more than twelve zombies under its control at one time.

No concoctions, maneuvers, or spells

All monsters in this system should have maneuvers or spells. You should add some maneuvers or spells to this monster. If you do so, please make a suggestion on github so I can finish adding maneuvers and spells to all monsters via https://github.com/mlenser/kryx-rpg-issues/issues/9
