Eye Vulnerability. A creature can target the fomorian’s eye with an attack. This attack is made with disadvantage . If the attack hits and deals at least 10 damage, creatures affected by the fomorian’s Charming and Mesmerizing Gaze are freed from those effects.

Immortal Nature. A titan doesn’t require air, sustenance, or sleep.


Multiattack. The fomorian attacks twice with its warhammer.

Warhammer. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (3d8 + 5) bludgeoning damage.


Charming Gaze (Gaze). A creature within 60 feet makes a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw . On a failure, the creature is magically charmed by the fomorian. The creature repeats the saving throw every 24 hours and whenever it takes damage. On a successful saving throw or if the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to any fomorian’s Charming Gaze for the next 24 hours. 

Mesmerizing Gaze (Gaze, True Form Only). A creature within 60 feet makes a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw . On a failure, the creature is magically restrained . The creature repeats the saving throw at the end of its next turn, ending the effect on itself on a success and becoming paralyzed on a failure. While the fomorian is not in line of sight, a paralyzed creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success. On a successful saving throw or if the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to any fomorian’s Mesmerizing Gaze for 24 hours. 

Immortal Form. While in its lair, the fomorian magically changes into a specific Medium humanoid resembling a human or back to its true form. Apart from its size, its statistics are unchanged. The fomorian reverts to its true form when it dies, is incapacitated , or leaves its lair.


The fomorian uses Mesmerizing Gaze on a new target every turn and then attacks with its warhammer, prioritizing non-paralyzed targets. It uses Charming Gaze on creatures that have made their saving throws against Mesmerizing Gaze. Once all targets are paralyzed or charmed , the fomorian carries its prey to its lair. It flees if an attack hits its eye while it is bloodied .

Legends and Lore

With an Arcana or History check, characters can learn the following:

DC 10 Titans are semi-divine creatures from the dawn of time.

DC 15 The literal children of gods, empyrean titans are mighty warriors and powerful spellcasters. Their wounds heal with supernatural speed.

DC 20 Eons ago, King Fomorian and his many degenerate children were banished to the Dreaming. Each fomorian has a bulging eye that is both the source of their magic and their greatest vulnerability.


The many children of King Fomor inherited his magical gaze and his curse. They were born into bodies resembling ogres instead of the graceful forms of empyreans. One of a fomorian’s eyes glints with sinister light. A creature caught beneath a fomorian’s gaze slows to a halt, unable to move or look away. 

Fomorians live alone or in glittering palaces underneath fey hills. They are ashamed of their true forms and, while in their lairs, magically take on shapes resembling faerie nobles. Served by captive humanoids and fey creatures, they dance, make merry, and plot vengeance against gods and mortals alike.


Material Plane Empyrean Behavior

1 Sitting on a throne, staring at beautifully gilded prison walls, longing for distraction

2 In a rage, hammering futilely on an indestructible stone door

3 Summoning and dismissing illusions of worshipful mortals, magnificent architecture, and forgiving parents

4 Escaped from its prison and on its way to reclaim its power 

Planar Traveler Empyrean Behavior

1 Dictating a message to a ball of light, which then races off; several more balls of light wait patiently to receive messages

2 Looking for battle with opponents of equal power

3 On a holy quest

4 Holding a feast, festival, or dance for locals


Some empyreans maintain a semblance of rulership within dungeon prisons, while others wander in exile far from the Material Plane. Fomorians and their ilk inhabit underground palaces in the Dreaming.
