New Combat Actions for the Creatures in Dragons of Stormwreck Isle

The bugbear chief nurses a gushing wound in her side before issuing an order of retreat to her allies. A bright light forms around the angel’s dying body, blinding everyone near it as it passes on from the world of the living. With blood streaming down its torso, an enraged hill giant slams its fists into the ground and causes the earth around it to quake. 

Bloodied & Bruised is a series providing new combat actions for the creatures in the 5e roster. When pushed to their limits in combat, these monsters, critters, fiends, and foes gain new abilities that aid them in battle, or perhaps spell their doom depending on the circumstances. Bloodied & Bruised takes inspiration from the "bloodied" condition from 4e, making entirely new combat actions that can completely change the nature of a fight.

In addition, Bloodied & Bruised also introduces several "death throes" to the game, marking the demise of certain creatures with a grand explosion, heavy fall, or other unique effect to make the slaying of a great monster a truly unique experience.

Examples of Bloodied Actions

Runara
When bloodied at 106 HP, the Runara has the following features.

  • Ability Recharge: Breath Weapon. When first bloodied, the dragon’s Breath Weapon ability is recharged.
  • Ability Recharge: Legendary Actions. When first bloodied, the dragon regains all expended uses of its legendary actions.
  • New Ability: Fling. While bloodied, the dragon can replace one of its Claw attacks with a Fling attack, but only if it just successfully hit a Medium or smaller creature with a Bite attack on the same turn. Then, the creature the dragon just bit is thrown up to 30 feet in a direction of the dragon’s choice, landing prone. If a thrown target strikes a solid surface, the target takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet it was thrown. If the target is thrown at another creature, that creature must succeed on a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw or take the same damage and be knocked prone.
  • New Ability: Wing of the Waves. While bloodied, if the dragon is damaged by a melee attack while on the ground and the attacker is within 10 feet of it, the bronze dragon can use its reaction to knock the creature back with its wing. The attacking creature must succeed on a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw or be thrown back 20 feet and knocked prone. If a thrown creature strikes a solid surface, the creature takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet it was thrown. If the target is thrown at another creature, that creature must succeed on a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw or take the same damage and be knocked prone.
  • Trigger Ability: Cornered. When first bloodied, the dragon can use its reaction to make a Claw attack against a creature within range.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
