Trampling Charge: If the gorgon moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a gore attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 16 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the gorgon can make one attack with its hooves against it as a bonus action.


Gore: Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d12 + 5) piercing damage.

Hooves: Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d10 + 5) bludgeoning damage.

Petrifying Breath (Recharge 5-6): The gorgon exhales petrifying gas in a 30-foot cone. Each creature in that area must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, a target begins to turn to stone and is restrained. The restrained target must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn. On a success, the effect ends on the target. On a failure, the target is petrified until freed by the greater restoration spell or other magic.

The SendingStone review

The Gorgon is a fearsome creature with thick natural armor and powerful abilities that make it a formidable opponent in battle. Its high constitution and hit points make it difficult to take down, while its condition immunities make it even harder to incapacitate. However, its low charisma and intelligence suggest that it may be easily manipulated or outsmarted by intelligent opponents. Its challenge rating of 5 means that it is a moderate challenge for a group of experienced adventurers, but it may not pose as much of a threat to higher level parties. Overall, the Gorgon is a solid addition to any game that needs a tough, tank-like monster for players to face.

Gorgon is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Gorgon Pathfinder edition. Want to use Gorgon in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
