Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for clicked on the 13th episode of our beast series. Today we’ve a really cool one in store for us. I think thematically this is just an amazing creature. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at the giant fly 5e monster which is with most of these is a pretty good descriptor of what it is.
The giant fly is found in the dungeon master’s guide and it is considered to be a cr0 creature that provides 10 experience on a kill. Now let’s take a look at this giant fly stats, so we can talk about it a little bit.
So it is actually considered to be a large beast and it is unaligned. So it’s pretty freaking big i love it. It’s AC is 11 and it has 19 hit points calculated by rolling at 3d10 and adding 3, has a normal speed of 30 feet and flying speed of 60 feet. Man it is so great.
- Type: Large beast, Unaligned
- AC: 11
- HP: 19(3D10+3)
- Speed: 30ft, fly 60ft
Taking a look at its stats along the side you’ll notice as with the most insects. It’s quite done and it’s not very charismatic. That being said this is actually quite strong boosting a +2 in strength.
- STR: 14(+2)
- DEX: 13(+1)
- CON: 13(+1)
- INT: 2(-4)
- WIS: 10(+0)
- CHA: 3(-4)
Taking a look at its senses here…. You can see 60 feet of darkvision and a passive perception of 10. Now i would like to say it has some cool attack but it really doesn’t much like the frog the giant fly doesn’t have any wave attack.
That being said i think would be super cool to have a low-level adventuring party, you’d be tasked with. Killing a bunch of giant flies located in the ins cellar in exchange for a free night’s lodging and meal the next day. I think that’d a super great low level adventure to get newer players oriented in combat and moving around just because the fly has such an impressive speed.
You could really show them how important about battlefield control is and since they don’t deal any damage you won’t have to worry about a TP kingdom and you could potentially throw a lot of flies their way a once. Without worrying about action economy-too much.
That being said! Let mw know how you would use them in your game! i’m really curious to see what you guys can come up with. That being said if you have any thoughts, questions, ideas, concerns please put them down beneath in the comment section and just why don’t you thinking. That being said i hope you all have a great day and as always happy studying my friends.
