Special Equipment. The darknut wears darknut armour. It has the following effects:

  • The darknut gains a +1 bonus to its AC.
  • When the darknut takes bludgeoning, slashing, or piercing damage it can choose to lose 1 stamina point for every 2 hit points it would have lost. If its stamina points are reduced to 0, any remaining damage is suffered as normal.
  • If a spell or magic effect specifically targets the darknut's armor (as opposed to it), it has advantage on any saving throw against that spell. If the spell does not allow a saving throw, it is afforded a Constitution saving throw to ignore the effect of the spell on its armor.
  • The darknut has advantage on any Strength ability check or saving throw to avoid being knocked prone or moved against its will.

Lunge. The darknut can increase the reach of its melee weapon by 5 feet for one attack by expending 1 stamina point when it makes that attack (included in the attack). It can use this feature to increase the provokable area of its opportunity attack.

Stamina Points. The darknut has 24 stamina points.


Multiattack. The darknut makes two melee attacks.

Greatsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft. (10 ft. if the darknut lunges), one target. Hit: 13 (2d6 + 6) slashing damage.


Parry. The darknut adds 4 to its AC against one melee attack that would hit it. To do so, the darknut must see the attacker and be wielding a melee weapon.

A heavily armored warrior that would make the best knights cower and flee. They are rare, and are often found in ancient dungeons. Some incredibly skilled spellcasters bolster their armies with darknuts in their most significant battles.
