Partially Incorporeal: A widowyrm exists partially in a shadow world. If it is in light other than bright light, it has resistance to all damage, mundane or magical. Exposure to bright light negates this ability for as long as it lasts. Widowyrms try to avoid such light if at all possible, often attacking the source to destroy it.
Paralytic Poison: The poisoned creature has tactical disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks. At the end of each of its turns, the poisoned creature must attempt a Con saving throw. On a result of 16 or higher, the poisoned condition ends and the character becomes immune to this widowyrn’s poison. On a result of 11–15, the poisoned condition continues. On a result of 10 or lower, the creature becomes paralyzed and no more saving throws are needed. Paralysis lasts for 1 hour or until the poison is neutralized.
Spell-like Abilities: A widowyrm can use the following spell-like abilities, using Charisma as its casting ability
(DC 10). The widowyrm doesn’t need material components to use these abilities.
3/day each: fear, darkness
2/day: dimension door (in shadows only)
