  • Aura of Menace. A righteous aura surrounds archons when they fight or get angry. Any hostile creature within a 20-foot radius of an archon must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw (DC 12) to resist its effects. Those who fail have disadvantage on attack rolls and saves for 24 hours or until they successfully hit the archon that generated the aura. A creature that has resisted or broken the effect cannot be affected again by the same archon’s aura for 24 hours.

Lantern archons appear as floating balls of light that glow about as brightly as a torch. They are tireless defenders of good and law, attacking their enemies at range using beams of light. Lantern archons are commonly found in the company of warbands of hound, sword, tome, and warden archons. Only rarely are they found alone or in a group of only other lantern archons.
