Aru Lowder (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Tiny beast, unaligned
Saving Throws Con +4, Wis +2
Weak Point. The aru lowder is invulnerable to most conventional forms of attack. However, when making a called shot against the aru lowder’s eye, a weapon is treated as adamantine for overcoming its damage immunity. Normally, making a called shot imposes disadvantage on the attack roll.
Stinger. Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 2 (1d4) piercing damage plus 5 (1d10) fire damage.
Fire Bolt. Ranged Spell Attack: +2 to hit, range 120 ft., one creature. Hit: 11 (2d10) fire damage.
An aru lowder appears like a sand-colored scorpion the size of a housecat, glaring with a cyclopean red eye. Although they share a common ancestor as lowders, aru lowders have adapted to the drier and brighter climates of deserts and tundra. They’ve developed an uncanny, magical stinger that can fling magical flames over great distances. This, combined with their acute vision, make them naturally skilled at taking down prey from a safe distance.
