History[edit | edit source]

Xargrim, Filro, and Dhourn were trying to find the Adamantine Forge somewhere within the Underdark. Filro was tasked with learning about any defense mechanisms within the forge and learned of a guardian of the forge that could be injured while it was in magma, and that was vulnerable to a "hot hammer".

Abandoned by his companions after they turned on each other, Filro was found by a pack of Hook Horrors who took him in and cared for him.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Filro will use the the height advantage he has among the cliffs and roots to throw down debilitating spells onto intruders for the monstrosities to pick off. He favors to cast Tasha's Hideous Laughter to leave his enemies Prone, leaving them open for a Hook Horror's deadly Multiattack. Grouping up and position can also lead to a lethal outcome with his Thunderwave which can throw someone to their demise.

Filro has low Wisdom and Charisma, making him weak to spells with such Saving Throws. A well aimed Shove can also lead to an instant kill from a high fall or even into a chasm, though you risk losing the Icy Crystal he carries.

Also, if Sovereign Glut is a follower, he can use his Animating Spores ability to revive a Hook Horror as a "Spore Servant", letting you use their powerful natural abilities against the other Horrors and the insane wizard.

Speak with Dead[edit | edit source]

When the spell is used, the character must pass a DC 20 Deception check as the mad Drow will accuse you of killing their 'beloved'. Failure will have him refusing to talk. If successful, you can ask questions normally.
