Destabilizing Field (aura, conjuration) 40 feet. A creature that begins its turn within the area feels its body begin to stretch and must succeed at a DC 33 Fortitude save or become destabilized. A destabilized creature emits a 10-foot destabilizing field aura and becomes sickened 1. The destabilization ends when the creature is no longer sickened. A creature that succeeds at its saving throw against the aura is temporarily immune to all destabilizing fields for 1 minute.

Reposition [two-actions] (concentrate, conjuration, occult, teleportation) The amalgamite teleports into an unoccupied space it can see within 50 feet.

Transpose [two-actions] (conjuration, occult, teleportation) The amalgamite chooses up to two destabilized creatures they can see within 50 feet and swaps their positions, or moves a single such creature to an unoccupied space they can see within range. If the amalgamite chooses two creatures, they can choose their self as one of these creatures, but both targets must be the same size. An unwilling creature can attempt a DC 33 Will save. If either target succeeds at this saving throw, both are unaffected.

About

Teleportation magic can prove a difficult undertaking, even for experienced spellcasters. It requires precise calculation and timing, knowledge of the intended destination, and meticulous control over surging conjuration magics. A mistake in even the most minute element of such a spell can lead to disastrous results for those involved. When a particularly powerful spellcaster makes an error of this kind, either through arrogance or simple misjudgment, they might transform into an amalgamite.

A mass of flesh and misaligned limbs, an amalgamite is the warped body of a former spellcaster, sometimes joined with another version of itself to incorporate additional limbs or other irregularities. They’re still alive, but they have become aberrants mentally and physically, with only the vaguest memories of their previous existence, which makes them a dangerous and bewildering foe. Their weird, warped anatomy constantly shifts and regrows, allowing the creatures to shrug off physical blows save those that pierce through its flesh and into its core being.

The magical residue of an amalgamite’s creation radiates from it, seeping into and destabilizing any living beings that get too close. Infected creatures then further spread the amalgamite’s aura among larger groups of allies and foes alike. The amalgamite uses this power to manipulate and confuse their enemies, whom they can teleport into traps, force into confrontations with other enemies, or draw close into striking range with their own odd appendages.

Amalgamites are often found in the company of other creatures, such as lesser aberrations, cultists of the Dark Tapestry, or the undead corpses of their former companions. They use these allies to spread their destabilizing field to other foes and separate those enemies from their own allies.
