Trick or Treat
The spooky season is here and with it, a wave of new content from various DMs Guild authors. I’d like to add to this pile of content with some new Halloween-themed equipment. The first volume of Spooky Equipment ended up being so successful, I thought it prudent to create a volume 2.
May your holiday games be extra spooky, and remember that Halloween isn’t just about eating a lot of candy and watching horror movies, but also a way to bring people together in a fun and spooky environment. May you have a blessed Samhain!

You can use an Action to pull the slimy object from the bag and throw it up to 20 feet. When the object lands, it transforms into a creature you determine by rolling a d8 and consulting the table. The creature vanishes at the next dawn or when it is reduced to 0 Hit Points.
The creature is friendly to you and your Companions, and it acts on Your Turn. You can use a bonus Action to command how the creature moves and what Action it takes on its next turn, or to give it general orders, such as to attack your enemies.
