Water Soluble. If soaked with water, the sandling takes 5 (1d10) ongoing acid damage if it isn’t already suffering ongoing acid damage. The sandling can spend an action to end this damage if it has access to dry sand to repair itself.
Local Spirit. The sandling is destroyed if it travels more than a mile from the place it was created.
Spell-created. The DC for to destroy this creature is 19.
Multiattack. The sandling uses sandstorm and makes two slam attacks.
Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage.
Sandstorm. Each creature within 30 feet makes a DC 12 Constitution. On a failure, it is until the end of its next turn.
Hat of Illusion (1/Day). While wearing a hat or other head covering, the sandling takes on the illusory appearance of the last living humanoid to wear that hat. It requires a DC 12 Insight or Perception check to recognize the illusion. The illusion ends when the sandling is touched, takes damage, attacks, or uses Sandstorm, or when the sandling chooses to end it as a bonus action.
The sandling uses sandstorm and then slams a target, preferably a one. Most sandlings guard a particular person or place and don’t chase a fleeing enemy.
Sandlings are constructs made of dry sand. Their use is mostly confined to the desert, since water and rain dissolve sandlings.
