Hello spellcasters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 23rd episode of our find familiar series, for next few episodes here we’re gonna be covering the volos guide familiars please bear in mind that these are actually meant as NPC familiars not necessarily meant as player familiars. Most of them are fine, i just run a past your DM first.
Today we’re going to be covering the cranium rat 5e which in my opinion is one of the cooler ones out there, not just aesthetically but also roleplay wise i think it’d be hilarious to roleplay one of these, just hoping that player character asks me. I mean i guess i can always make an NPC maybe i’ll do that actually. In any case let’s get on to the statistics here.
Cranium Rat DnD 5E Stats
First and foremost it is a lawful evil tiny beast which is kind of cool when you think about it, i really like it. Alright so AC of 12 which is fairly standard, 2 hit points caused by the average of a die four you can roll that if you want, 30 feet of walking speed so boat on par with most humanoids. In any case you may also like to read how big is a giant rat 5e.
It stats are fairly average ish as far as families are concerned, it’s not bad index but its intelligence, the strength are pretty low. In terms of senses you got darkvision up to 30 feet and a passive perception of 10 and under languages you have telepathy which is super cool! That being said, let’s move on to its other traits and actions here.
You can perform illumination…as a bonus action, it can shed a dim light from its for a five foot radius or extinguish the light for another bonus action, we’re just pretty cool! The telepathic shroud is another one so immune to any effect that would affect that would sense its emotions read its thoughts as well as to all divination spells which is really cool…when it comes to this being a spy super cool!
As an action it can bite as well which is a plus four to hit and one piercing damage in terms of damage. I’m a homebrew a poison effect on to that, in terms of who can use this i mean that’d be fine with personally i’d be cool with anyone taking this it’s not particularly overwhelmingly good in any ways, i can think of core familiars were more stronger than this and mainly the owl would actually, i would rank above this in almost every conceivable way. Also read swarm of cranium rats dnd 5e.
That being said, if you agree, disagree. If you have any thoughts, comments, anything to do with cranium rats dnd 5e please put it down beneath, i really enjoy reading them and i really enjoy hearing from you guys. That being said, i hope you all have a wonderful day and as always a happy casting.
