The Shard

An edgy aberration designed to challenge veteran D&D 5e players.

In D&D 5e, damage resistances and immunities play a critical role in the tactics of a combat. But they could be better.

The Shard is a monster designed to push parties to their limits by befuddling the usually safe physical damage types. No edge can slice it, and piercing blows will only glance across its shimmering surface. Only the concussive, flat force can dent or sweep the creature aside. But those close enough to do so are often sliced to ribbons. Even light seems to be cut by this creature's body, peeling away and failing to find purchase on its razor thin existence. Magical weapons aren't going to be the panacea that they usually are, and without the right damage type, these creatures will prove deadly. Create better, more exciting tactics for your D&D 5e games using this threatening aberration.

Designed using the Day 20 Dynamic Challenge System, this monster scales to suit any level. Whether your party is just starting or are at the end of a high level campaign, this stat block will serve you well!
