A nice counter to large parties of PCs with lots of actions. Used as part of the Bronze Liche encounter.

Aura: Despair. An enemy that starts its turn within 30 feet of the deathshrieker takes 10 psychic damage and is slowed.
Death Rattle. When the deathshrieker is reduced to 0 hp it sings its last song. All creatures within 30 feet of it must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be reduced to 0 hit points. On a success, the target is reduced to half their starting hit points instead.
Songs of the Damned (Recharge 5-6). The deathshrieker emits a bloodcurdling howl. Each creature within 30 feet of it that can hear the howl must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or take 5d12 + 10 psychic damage. On a successful save, the creature takes half damage and is frightened until the end of its next turn.
Life Drain. The deathshrieker targets a creature that it can see within 10 feet of it. The target must succeed on a DC 19 Constitution saving throw or take 21 (6d6) necrotic damage. On a successful save, the creature is weakened until the end of its next turn (a weakened creature does half damage with weapons or attacks that are keyed of a physical ability score).
Action Point (1/Day). The deathshrieker may take an available action.
