Innate Spellcasting. The rotbringer's innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (save DC 20). The rotbringer can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At will: animate dead, detect magic
3/day each: blight, circle of death
1/day each: create undead, finger of death

Magic Resistance. The rotbringer has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Magic Weapons. The rotbringer's weapon attacks are magical.

Marshal Undead. Unless the rotbringer is incapacitated, it and undead creatures of its choice within 60 feet of it have advantage on saving throws against features that turn undead.


Multiattack. The rotbringer makes two attacks.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (2d8 + 6) slashing damage plus 22 (5d8) necrotic damage.

A rotbringer resembles a rotten humanoid corpse with decayed bird wings, a festering mockery of an angel occasionally known as an angel of decay. The rotbringer's hands end in vicious claws that cause flesh to rot and other materials to splinter and crack, while its innate power over death allows it to create and command undead and wither its foes with necrotic magic. Lesser undead are drawn to the presence of a rotbringer like moths to flame.
It is said that Orcus alone knows the secrets required to create rotbringers, but that hasn't stopped the attempts of countless necromancers to recreate these undead abominations, all of which have failed. Although each rotbringer is created loyal to Orcus, some have managed to escape his control and taken to wandering the planes attacking anything they come across.

Undead Nature. A rotbringer doesn't require air, food, drink, or sleep.
