Storm Giant Quintessent's Lair

Mountain peak, a great waterfall, a remote island, a fog-shrouded loch, a beautiful coral reef, or a windswept desert bluff.

Lair Actions

When fighting inside its lair, an storm giant quintessent can use lair actions. On initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), the giant takes a lair action to cause one of the following effects; the giant can’t use the same effect two rounds in a row:

  • Deafening thunderclap
  • Obscuring fog
  • Pushing wind

Regional Effects

The region containing a storm giant quintessent's lair is warped by the giant's presence, which creates one or more of the following effects:

  • High winds
  • Constant rain, snow, or blowing dust or sand
  • Continual lightning

If the giant dies, the lightning, thunder, and high wind regional effects end immediately. Rain, snow, and blowing dust abate gradually within ld8 days.
