The plague of the Gulthias tree spares no plant! Case in point: the terrifying lettuce blight. It may look like ordinary romaine lettuce, but once you get close enough, you immediately realize that the thing that used to be a staple of your tasty caesar salad is now a horrific creature, determined to infect you with its accursed EVILcoli disease!

False Appearance. While the blight remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from a head of lettuce.
Heart of Romaine. The blight has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, frightened, paralyzed, poisoned, stunned, or put to sleep.
Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (1d4 + 1) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on DC 11 Constitution saving throw or it contracts EVILcoli disease. The diseased target can’t regain hit points, and its hit point maximum decreases by 2 (1d4) for every 24 hours that elapse. If the disease reduces the target’s hit point maximum to 0, the target dies, and its body turns to moldy lettuce. The disease lasts until removed by the lesser restoration spell or other magic.
Hardened Bread Cubes. Ranged Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (1d4 + 1) bludgeoning damage.
Thanks for reading!
Be sure to keep an eye out for these horrible things tomorrow while you’re eating your Thanksgiving Dinner. The last thing you want to have happen while you’re discussing politics with your Uncle Jerry or watching football players eat multi-legged turkeys is to have one of these buggers attack you.
