Anne Gregersen has continued to release Dungeons & Dragons supplements that bring the concept of death throes and bloodied actions to 5E adventures. One of the latest additions is Bloodied & Bruised – Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage. Inside this supplement, you’ll find bloodied actions for creatures like Muiral that can cast a spell and attack when “bloodied” or Scaladar which is able to Dash as a bonus action when “bloodied.” These are really cool supplements and definitely something DMs should consider adding to their toolbox.
The bugbear chief nurses a gushing wound in her side before issuing an order of retreat to her allies. A bright light forms around the angel’s dying body, blinding everyone near it as it passes on from the world of the living. With blood streaming down its torso, an enraged hill giant slams its fists into the ground and causes the earth around it to quake.
You can purchase Bloodied & Bruised – Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage from DMs Guild (affiliate link) for $3.95.
