And it is considered to be a CR one quarter creature very cool stuff! Now let’s take a quick look at the Fastieth stats.

  • STR: 12 (+1)

  • CON: 10 (+0)
  • INT: 4 (-3)
  • WIS: 11 (+0)
  • CHA: 4 (-3)
  • Senses: Passive Perception 10
  • Languages:
  • Challenge: 1/4 (50 XP)
  • Quickness (Recharge 5–6): The fastieth can take the Dodge action as a bonus action.

You will notice his dexterity is off-the-chain coming in at +4 pretty impressive. Now taking a look at his senses. Not a whole lot to brag about coming in with a passive perception of +10. They also have access to another trait that we haven’t really talked about yet. So i’m gonna do my best to explain it to you.

So the trait is called quickness which is pretty easy to explain, they can use the dodge action as a bonus action pretty cool stuff! But what we haven’t talked about is the recharge. So recharge is followed up by usually two numbers and provides a range usually.

So how it works is it’s an ability that they can use once for sure and then at the start of each subsequent round, you roll a D6 and based on the results of that d6 it determines whether or not they can use it again, if that makes sense.

So how it works is you can use the quickness force for sure the first round of combat and if you do that then the subsequent rounds around two at the start of the Fastieth turn. You roll a d6 and if it’s a five or six, it can take advantage of that quickness action or bonus action for that turn as well. So that’s really all there is to it, it’s pretty simple to get the hang of it but this is just the first beast that has that mechanic.

Now taking the fastieth actions you’ll see that it only has one and that is a bite attack.

Actions

  • Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage.

It is considered to be a melee weapon attack plus six to hit which is great! Reach of five feet, one target deals eight piercing damage calculated by rolling 1d8 and adding four.

Description

Fastieth are human-sized, two-legged saurians with large eyes, brightly colored and patterned scales, and strong legs. They are the most common mounts of the halflings of the Talenta Plains, bred for speed. Although too small to bear larger riders, a fastieth can carry a halfling with light gear easily and at a good pace. Fastieths are typically stubborn creatures, so specimens with an even temperament are prized among the Talenta tribes.

Being herbivores, fastieths prefer to flee rather than fight. However, even though not trained for battle, they can deliver a vicious bite if pressed.

So once again how i would use it more than likely have a party be tasked with either tracking them down or have them track one down find it as an even temperament and then use it as kind of a way to curry favor with a local tribe.

I think that would be very cool and kind of a good way to get them attached to kind like a cute NPC that they have to deliberate between giving up for making whatever journey they’re on a lot easier or keeping around as kind of a valuable member of the team. I think that’d be kind of an interesting maybe a little bit evil but more blooms are important.

Conclusion

That being said, let me know how you would use the Fastieth in your game down beneath in the comment section.
