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

Spellcasting. The mind flayer’s spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 15, +7 to hit with spell attacks). It has 14 psi, a psi limit of 3, regains all expended psi when it finishes a long rest and regains half its total psi when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following spells:

At will: detect thoughts, levitate

Cantrips (at will, 9th-level spellcaster): distract, message, mind thrust

1 mana: agonizing rebuke, call to mind, confusion, ego whip, haze senses, meld mindcrystal, mind over body, mind spike, mind trap, psychic fortress, sending, sense minds, thought shield, wandering mind

2 mana: co-opt concentration, mind blast, mind control, modify memory, psychic crush, psychic reformation, synaptic static, telepathic bond

3 mana: schism, solicit mindcrystal

1/day: plane shift (self only)

Actions (2)

Tentacles. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 1 m. Hit: 14 (2d10 + 3) psychic damage. If the target is Medium or smaller, it is grappled (escape DC 14) and must succeed on a DC 15 Will saving throw or be stunned until this grapple ends.

Extract Brain (1/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 1 m., one incapacitated humanoid grappled by the mind flayer. Hit: 58 (10d10 + 3) piercing damage. If this damage reduces the target to 0 health, the mind flayer kills the target by extracting and devouring its brain.

Mind Blast (Recharge 5–6). The mind flayer magically emits psychic energy in a 10-meter cone. Each creature in that area must succeed on a DC 15 Will saving throw or take 22 (4d8 + 4) psychic damage and be stunned for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

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
