Dashing Strike. If the shadow dancer uses its action to Dash, it can use a bonus action to make one melee weapon attack or shove a creature.

Fey Ancestry. The shadow dancer has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put it to sleep.

Bonus Actions

Shadow Jump. As a bonus action, the shadow dancer can teleport up to 9 meters to an unoccupied space it can see. Both the space it teleports from and the space it teleports to must be in dim light or darkness. The shadow dancer can use this ability between the weapon attacks of another action it takes.

Actions

Multiattack. The shadow dancer makes three spiked chain attacks.

Spiked Chain. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 3 m. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) piercing damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 14 Reflex saving throw or suffer one additional effect of the shadow dancer’s choice:

  • The target is grappled (escape DC 14) if it is a Medium or smaller creature. Until the grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the shadow dancer can’t grapple another target.
  • The target is knocked prone.
  • The target takes 22 (4d10) necrotic damage.
