dnd 5e – How can victims of a Devourer / Spawn of Kyuss be restored?

True resurrection.

A devourer creates either a zombie, ghoul, or wight, all undead; and a spawn of Kyuss created another spawn of Kyuss, also undead.

You should kill or destroy the undead created by the devourer or spawn of Kyuss, and then cast true resurrection on the body or by speaking their name, whichever is appropriate.

True resurrection says:

You touch a creature that has been dead for no longer than 200 years and that died for any reason except old age. If the creature’s soul is free and willing, the creature is restored to life with all its hit points.

This spell closes all wounds, neutralizes any poison, cures all diseases, and lifts any curses affecting the creature when it died. The spell replaces damaged or missing organs and limbs. If the creature was undead, it is restored to its non-undead form.

The spell can even provide a new body if the original no longer exists, in which case you must speak the creature’s name. The creature then appears in an unoccupied space you choose within 10 feet of you.

True resurrection is quite clear, “If the creature was undead, it is restored to its non-undead form“, since the devourer and the spawn of Kyuss both create undead from your fallen comrade, true resurrection will work to bring them back to their previous form.

Now, what if for some reason your 17th-level or higher party of adventurers cannot come up with 25,000 gp for the diamonds required for true resurrection? We are back to needing a wish spell – we still need not depend on the whims of our DM. Wish can create the diamond we need:

You create one object of up to 25,000 gp in value that isn’t a magic item. The object can be no more than 300 feet in any dimension, and it appears in an unoccupied space you can see on the ground.

Then we can use that diamond to cast true resurrection. No need to worry about a scheming DM throwing some monkey’s paw at our wish.

dnd 5e – Does a creature possessed by intellect devourer have blindsight?

The intellect devourer’s feature Body Thief says the following:

While inside a creature, the intellect devourer has total cover against attacks and other effects originating outside its host. The intellect devourer retains its Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores, as well as its understanding of Deep Speech, its telepathy, and its traits. It otherwise adopts the target’s statistics.

Does it retain its 60ft blindsight and immunity to the blinded condition while inside the creature?

dnd 5e – What happens when a ghost applies the Possession action to a victim of an intellectual devourer?

The Intellect Devourer's Body Thief Action states that the Intellect Devourer "takes control of the target's body." We know that the body of the victim is still alive and counts as a creature.

The Possession of Mind action states, "The mind now controls the body, but does not rob the target of consciousness."

So does the mind override the intellectual devourer to control the humanoid in question?

Also, in terms of charisma salvation, salvation would automatically fail because the ultimate goal is the humanoid, or would the Intellect Devourer try to rescue the rescue with his own charisma of keeping control of the body?

dnd 5e – Does the detection of thoughts work against an Intellect Devourer?

The Recognize Thoughts spell is subject to the following restrictions on potential targets:

You can not discover a creature with an intelligence of 3 or lower, or one that does not speak a language.

An Intellect Devourer meets the intelligence requirements, but does an Intellect Devourer speak a language? The language part of his statistics block is:

Languages ​​Deep Speech understands, but can not speak, Telepathy 60 ft.

This seems cut-off and dry: it says here that it knows Deep Speech but can not speak. But I think the situation is not that easy.

This situation is similar to a sorcerer with his tongue cut out. They can not speak without tongue. They have the mental ability to speak, but lack the physical ability to do so without magical or mechanical help.

I have the feeling that an Intertwinger is in the same situation. If it uses its body-thief ability to control a victim, it can speak through the mouth (confirmed by official D & D 5e products). The intellect eater has the mental ability to speak, but its natural form lacks the physical means to do so without the aid of a host body.

Does Detect Thoughts work against an Intellect Devourer?

dnd 5e – Can an intellectual devourer use the consumption of intellect while living in the body of a creature?

In the MM (p. 191) it is said that an intellect engulfs in its body thief action:

retains its intelligence, wisdom and charisma values ​​as well as its understanding of the deep language, its telepathy and its characteristics. Otherwise, the statistics of the destination will be adopted.

is Gobble Intellect, an act that the intellect-eating devotee considered characteristic?

It seems to me that the properties range from his ability ratings to the actions in the monster stat block, so he could not use them Gobble Intellect while the body of another is controlled.

Does anyone have an insight into this topic?
