Good. The unicorn radiates a Good aura. 

Innate Spellcasting. The unicorn’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 16). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At will: animal messenger , detect evil and good , druidcraft , pass without trace , scrying (locations within its domain only)

1/day: calm emotions , dispel evil and good , teleport (between locations within its domain only)

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


Multiattack. The unicorn attacks once with its hooves and once with its horn.

Hooves. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8 + 5) bludgeoning damage.

Horn. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8 + 5) piercing damage plus 10 (3d6) radiant damage. If the target is a creature and the unicorn moves at least 20 feet straight towards the target before the attack, the target takes an extra 9 (2d8) bludgeoning damage and makes a DC 16 Strength saving throw , falling prone on a failure.

Grant Boon (3/Day). The unicorn touches a willing creature, including itself, with its horn and grants one of the following boons:

Healing: The creature magically regains 21 (6d6) hit points. It is cured of all diseases , and poisons affecting it are neutralized.

Luck: During the next 24 hours, the creature can roll a d12 and add the result to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw after seeing the result.

Protection: A glowing mote of light orbits the creature’s head. The mote lasts 24 hours. When the creature fails a saving throw , it can use its reaction to expend the mote and succeed on the saving throw.

Resolution: The creature is immune to being charmed or frightened for 24 hours.


The unicorn grants a boon, such as Luck or Protection, to itself or an ally before battle. It charges into melee combat and fights with its hooves and horn. When it or an ally is seriously injured, it grants a Healing boon. If brought to the brink of defeat within its domain, it uses Teleport to escape with allies to safety.

Legends and Lore

With a Nature or Religion check, characters can learn the following:

DC 10 Unicorns are celestial beings of pure good that protect enchanted forests in the Dreaming and on the Material Plane.

DC 15 The touch of a unicorn’s horn can heal the sick or grant a boon of good luck or protection.

DC 20 Even the inherent goodness of a unicorn can be corrupted. Corrupted unicorns use their magical horns to summon inky shadows.


Those fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of a unicorn describe a majestic white or black horse with a silver horn spiraling from its brow. Resolute champions of good, unicorns are celestial guardians sent by sylvan gods to protect sacred places and ward against evil. A unicorn is aware of all who enter its enchanted forest, and it moves swiftly to wherever it is needed most. Creatures pure of heart feel a supernatural calm in a unicorn’s domain, while those with ill intent find no comfort in such places. 

Divine Aid. In times of great need, a unicorn can perform miracles and grant boons. A unicorn’s touch banishes otherworldly evil and heals the sick and wounded. A herald astride a unicorn is proof of divine intervention against forces of evil.

Powerful Reagents. A unicorn’s body is magic made flesh. Its horn, hair, tears, and blood are powerful components for rituals, potions, magical ink, and other enchanted items. A unicorn might sacrifice its body for a noble cause, but those who would slay a unicorn for such power risk divine retribution.

6 If you are on a noble quest, it blesses you and touches its horn to one of your magic items. That item gains a new power: roll on the Lesser Artifact Benefits table chapter. If you are not on a noble quest, it invites you to return when you need the unicorn’s aid
