Undying Troglodytes (illusion) At-Will

Trigger: A troglodyte dies in the encounter.

Effect (No Action): At the start of its next turn, the dead troglodyte appears to rise up. This illusory troglodyte has the statistics of a normal troglodyte (including full hit points), except that its attacks deal psychic damage instead of any other damage type. When it drops to 0 hit points, the illusory troglodyte appears to die and does not rise up.
