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

Speak with Beasts and Plants. The dryad can communicate with beasts and plants as if they shared a language.

Spellcasting. The dryad’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 14, +6 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, goodberry, locate plants, protection from poison, regrowth, vine lash

3/day: entangle

1/day: pass without trace

Tree Stride. Once on her turn, the dryad can use 2 meters of her movement to step magically into one living tree within her reach and emerge from a second living tree within 10 meters of the first tree, appearing in an unoccupied space within 1 meter of the second tree. Both trees must be large or bigger.

Actions

Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 1 m. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) piercing damage.

Fey Charm (1/turn). The dryad targets one humanoid or beast that she can see within 5 meters of her. If the target can see the dryad, it must succeed on a DC 14 Will saving throw or be magically charmed. The charmed creature regards the dryad as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected. Although the target isn’t under the dryad’s control, it takes the dryad’s requests or actions in the most favorable way it can.

Each time the dryad or its allies do anything harmful to the target, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success. Otherwise, the effect lasts 24 hours or until the dryad dies, is on a different plane of existence from the target, or ends the effect on its turn (no action required). If a target’s saving throw is successful, the target is immune to the dryad’s Fey Charm for the next 24 hours.

The dryad can have no more than one humanoid and up to three beasts charmed at a 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
