Sunlight Sensitivity. While in sunlight, the barrow-wight has disadvantage on attack rolls, as well as on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.
Multiattack. The barrow-wight makes two longsword attacks or two longbow attacks. It can use its Life Drain in place of one longsword attack.
Life Drain. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 1d6 + 2 necrotic damage. The target must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or its hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0. A humanoid slain by this attack rises 24 hours later as a zombie under the barrow-wight’s control, unless the humanoid is restored to life or its body is destroyed. The barrow-wight can have no more than twelve zombies under its control at one time.
