Killer Flowers for Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons

Up bright and early today and already have monsters on the mind. I asked my son, Jack for some inspiration and, as usual, he delivered with this idea:

It’s a killer flower that sprays poison at people. There are lots of little ones and they blind you.

Sounds like a swarm to me! And since my PC’s are hitting up a swamp today, I feel like it only makes sense to incorporate more wicked plants into today’s story.



Swarm of Killer Flowers

Medium swarm of Tiny plants, unaligned

Armor Class 5

Hit Points 18 (4d8)

Speed 0 ft.

Swarm. The swarm can occupy another creature’s space and vice versa. The swarm can’t regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.


Poison spray. The swarm sprays poison onto one creature in the swarm’s space. The target must succeed on a DC 10 saving throw or take 7 (2d6) poison damage and become blinded. If the swarm has half of its hit points or fewer, the target has advantage on this saving throw.

It’s Saturday, so I’m sure to create more monsters today.

See you next time!

This monster is free for you to use in your 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. Just not commercially.
