[New Monster] Serpent of Yzbin-Gi

Serpent of Yzbin-Gi

Without warning a snarl in the dark was followed by a hail of spikes a half a foot long. The gnome illusionist let out a yelp and fell to the ground.

‘Give that thing the chalice, it has been following us for days,’ urged the elf ranger.

Reluctantly the druid threw the chalice into the shadows. With an eerie cackle the serpentine creature gripped the chalice in its toothsome maw and retreated. The druid cast a healing spell on the gnome that seemed to half rouse the small illusionist.

‘I’ll tell him you were concerned,’ Fellhorn told the elf.

‘I wasn’t!’ the elf lied. ‘I was concerned for us all. That thing would have gotten to us one by one.’

‘Sure,’ the druid said with a smile.

The very sinister Serpent of Yzbin-Gi is a large, dragon-headed beast, nearly twenty feet long and five feet thick with a tail full of spikes similar to that of a manticore. These vicious and clever monsters love to hoard treasure and will track their prey for miles to gain a particular artifact or valuable piece of treasure.

In combat these creatures will use their tail spikes if possible first in a fight. The creature has twenty tail spikes it can shoot up to 30′. A character can be hit by 1d6 of these spikes which deal 1d4 points of damage each and invoke a Save versus Poison or the spike deals an additional 1d3 damage and takes twice as long (healing spells and potions only heal half as much damage to a poisoned individual). The monster also will fire these at anyone pursuing them. The creature also has a powerful bite that deals 1d4+2 damage.
