Undying Might. After it's first death, a zombie knight will revive at half hp at the start of it's next turn. When it does so, the knight will lose its shield and begin to two-hand its longsword.


Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8/9 (1d8/10 + 4) slashing damage.

Shield Bash. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d4 +4) bludgeoning damage. Target must make a DC 14 STR saving throw or be pushed back 5 ft.

Raise Shield. The knight raises it's shield, gaining an additional +2 to AC and Dex saves, and reducing damage taken by 1d10 + 3. If the Zombie Knight is hit by a melee attack and does not reduce the damage to 0, it loses all bonuses to AC and Dex saves from its shield until the start of its next turn.


Riposte. When the zombie knight reduces the damage from a melee attack to 0, they may make one attack with their longsword on the enemy that attacked them, if they are within range.
