Some grimlocks have psionic abilities, seen as gifts from their illithid gods. These rare creatures are called mindspeakers by other grimlocks because they can telepathically communicate with others. The mindspeakers use this to better coordinate raids, and they wield enchanting magic that they use to sow discord among enemy ranks.
Most grimlock mindspeakers wield staves crafted from bone or wood and topped with a simplistic image of a mind flayer, seen as a symbol of their devotion.
