Tunneller. The dhole can burrow through solid rock at half its burrow speed and leaves a 15-foot diameter tunnel in its wake.


Multiattack. The dhole makes three attacks, two with its bite, and one with its caustic goo or with its spit.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 25 (3d10 + 8) piercing damage. If the target is a Huge or smaller creature, it has to succeed a DC 19 Strength saving throw or be swallowed by the dhole. Swallowed creatures are blinded and restrained. They have full cover and can only use light weapons. A swallowed creature takes 11 (2d10) acid damage at the beginning of the dhole's turn. Killing the dhole frees the swallowed target. If the dhole takes more than 100 damage in a turn or more than 50 damage in a turn from a creature it swallowed, it automatically uses its spit attack. The dhole cannot swallow more than three creatures at any given time.

Spit. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 60/120 ft., one target. The dhole spits a swallowed creature at the target. Hit: 16 (3d10) bludgeoning damage to the target and the swallowed creature. Both creatures are knocked prone. If the attack does not hit the target, only the swallowed creature takes damage and is knocked prone. In any case, the formerly swallowed creature appears in a space within 5 feet of the target.

Caustic Goo. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 60/120 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (3d10) acid damage, and the target has to succeed on a DC 19 Strength saving throw or become restrained} for 1 minute. As an action, a restrained creature can use its action to make a DC 19 Strength check, freeing itself on a success.


The dhole is a gargantuan slimy worm-like entity of more than a hundred metres of length and covered in slime. Its maw is so large that it can swallow almost everything that comes across its path. It has not eyes and no visible anatomy except for its colossal mouth with row after row of teeth. Dholes avoid light, though it does not harm them. Similar creatures called bholes live in the dreamlands.
