When giant caterpillars reach a certain age, they spin silky cocoons and enter them, metamorphosing for up to a month, before emerging as beautiful—and quite large—butterflies. These giant butterflies have many wondrous colours all over their majestic wings, and their wing scales are highly prized for use in tonics and potions.

Variant: Poisonous Giant Butterfly

Sometimes, giant butterflies are poisonous, but the poisonous wing scales can be used as-is or refined to make more potent toxins. The option presented here is a standard poisonous giant butterfly, but other variants exist, such as those with dizzying poisons that replicate the effects of a confusion spell in their victims. A poisonous giant butterfly has a CR of 1 (200 XP) and has the following action option:
Wing Scales (Recharge 6). The butterfly scatters toxic wing scales in a 15-foot cube centred around itself. Each creature in that area must succeed on a DC 11 Constitution saving throw or take 6 (1d12) poison damage and be poisoned for 1 minute. If a creature fails its saving throw by 5 or more, it is also paralysed while it is poisoned.
