A hybrid that is human from the waist up; below is a scaly, muscular snakelike tail. Its mouth drips with venomous saliva.

It is strange and repulsive.

"Amongst the deities and Asuras and celestial Rishis, O amiable lady, the Nagas are endued with great energy. Possessed of great speed, they are endued again with excellent fragrance. They deserve to be worshipped. They are capable of granting boons. Indeed, we too deserve to be followed by others in our train. I tell thee, O lady, that we are incapable of being seen by human beings."

-Mahabharata, Santi Parva, Mokshadharma Parva, section CCCLX. ca. 500 B.C.

trans. Kisari Mohan Ganguli, 1883.

Useful Info

Nagas are a race of cruel snakemen who dwell in the Snake Pit, a side branch of the Lair. They move slowly and wear little armour, but carry heavy weapons and can spit poison at you. When in melee, they also tend to constrict you, dealing surprising amounts of damage.

Tips & Tricks

  • All nagas pack powerful poisonous attacks, making poison resistance tremendously useful. They also deal significant amounts of physical damage (even the mages), so heavy armour and high AC helps too.
  • Although nagas will eventually charge you in melee, they will happily spit poison at you repeatedly on the way. Expect to take damage at any range.
