Bonus Actions

Psychic Connection. One creature the sphinx can see within 60 feet of it must succeed on a DC 17 WIS save or be mentally connected to the sphinx until the sphinx chooses to end it or until the sphinx dies or the target dies. While connected in this way, the sphinx can cause the target to experience one of the following effects at the start of each of the target’s turns. The effect lasts until the start of the target’s next turn or until the connection ends. The target can repeat the save at the end of each of its turns, ending the connection on a success.

– Disoriented. When the target moves, it moves in a random direction.

– Distracted. When the target casts a spell, it must succeed on a DC 17 WIS save or be unable to cast the spell, using the action, bonus action, or reaction to cast the spell but not expending the spell slot or similar limited use of the spell.

– Seeing Double. The target has disadvantage on weapon attack rolls.
