Stage 2 1d6 poison damage, flat-footed, and Clumsy 1 (1 round)

Change Shape One Action (arcane, concentrate, polymorph, transmutation)

The anadi changes into their hybrid, spider, or human form. The above statistics assume the anadi is in hybrid form. While in human form, the anadi seeker loses their climb Speed and can't use their fangs attack. When in spider form, they can't use weapons.

The monster changes its shape indefinitely. It can use this action again to return to its natural shape or adopt a new shape. Unless otherwise noted, a monster cannot use Change Shape to appear as a specific individual. Using Change Shape counts as creating a disguise for the Impersonate use of Deception. The monster's transformation automatically defeats Perception DCs to determine whether the creature is a member of the ancestry or creature type into which it transformed, and it gains a +4 status bonus to its Deception DC to prevent others from seeing through its disguise. Change Shape abilities specify what shapes the monster can adopt. The monster doesn't gain any special abilities of the new shape, only its physical form. For example, in each shape, it replaces its normal Speeds and Strikes, and might potentially change its senses or size. Any changes are listed in its stat block.

Sneak Attack

The anadi lurker deals an additional 1d6 precision damage to flat-footed creatures.

When the monster Strikes a creature that has the Flat-Footed condition with an agile or finesse melee weapon, an agile or finesse unarmed attack, or a ranged weapon attack, it also deals the listed precision damage. For a ranged attack with a thrown weapon, that weapon must also be an agile or finesse weapon.

Innate Arcane Spells (DC 20, +12 to hit)

Cantrips (2nd Level): Daze, Detect Magic, Mage Hand, Message
1st Level: Color Spray, Illusory Disguise, Illusory Object
2nd Level: Blur, Web

These anadis lurkers combine their innate magical talents and wilderness lore to snare prey.

Anadis have three distinct forms-human, spider, and a beautiful but unnerving hybrid shape that is their true form. Despite their unsettling arachnid features, anadis are peaceful and form tight-knit communities.
