[S&W/LL] New Monster: the Serpent Kings

The Serpent Kings

Armor Class: 5 [14]
Hit Dice: 5
Attacks: 2 claws (1d6), 1 bite (2d4), constrict (2d6)

Saving Throw: 12
Special: Constrict, spit poison

Move: 7
Challenge Level/XP: 8/800 XP

Sometimes summoned by the Serpent People when the reptilians are in dire need of backup, the Serpent Kings are vicious brutes. They appear as huge snakes (an adult is around 30 feet long) with a humanoid torso and a cruel face that is a mixture of snake and man. In addition to a claw and bite attack the Serpent Kings can spit a noxious poison up to 25 feet (those struck must make their Saving Throw or be paralyzed for 2d6 turns) and the worst of all is their ability to constrict with their strong coils. They eschew weapons and armor and rely on their natural abilities to overwhelm the enemies of the Serpent Kingdom.

    Great stuff! Reptile folk are among my favorites. I think their very nature lends them to running or playing them as a race with alien motivations. So many people are freaked out by snakes anyhow, why not capitalize on that? 🙂

      Thank you, mthomas768 for the kind comment and another blog to add to the ‘blogs of note’ section. If you have read Robert E. Howard’s King Kull stories you will find them to be very creepy indeed. Awesome pick on Cook’s Black Company books that I see you are reading. I enjoyed the first series more, but Cook is a wizard with the Black Company.
