| Fearful Shape. The fearmonger uses its innate telepathy to find the greatest fear of an individual or group. The group (or individual) perceives the fearmonger as that fear personified.
Fear Eating. When a creature(s) fails the saving throw caused by the fearmonger's Deadly Fright (see below). The fearmonger regains hit points equal to the hit points lost by the creature(s).
Deadly Fright. The fearmonger may use an action to emit the very essence of fear. When it does so, each creature of the aberration’s choice that is within 120 feet of it and aware of it must roll a Wisdom saving throw (DC 20).
On a failed save the creature looses a number of hit points equal to the the number by which it failed the save and becomes frightened and incapacitated for 1 minute. While under the effect of the Deadly Fright, the creature must repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its subsequent turns.
On a successful save, the creature ends both the frightened and incapacitated conditions on itself and is immune to the aberration’s Deadly Fright for 1 hour.
If the creature is already frightened (either from the Deadly Fright or another cause), the saves are made with disadvantage.
Creatures that are immune to the frightened condition automatically succeed on saves against the aberration's Deadly Fright.
Frenzied Attack. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit. reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 2 (1d4) piercing, 2 (1d4) slashing, and 3 (1d6) psychic damage. This attack is magical. This attack is always used as a last resort to facilitate an escape, usually from creatures immune to its Deadly Fear.
Escape. The fearmonger may use its reaction to teleport 60' away from a creature that has damaged it.
The fearmonger is an eater of fear. Its true shape, is a mass of eyes, mouths and tentacles. It is bold, but will flee if threatened by creatures immune to its Deadly Fear.
While it can fly and levitate, it prefers to move along the ground.
