TACTICS

Before Combat An acid naga casts protection from energy on itself (usually protecting against fire) and if it has time, mirror image then shield.

During Combat An acid naga attacks with its bite and tail slap to poison a foe before pummeling them to death with flurry of blows. Enemies too difficult to hit are targeted with magic missile.

Morale An acid naga fights until reduced to 50 hp or less, at which point it retreats and goes into hiding (re-engaging for a fight to the death after its enemies drop their guard).

ECOLOGY

Environment underground
Organization solitary, pair, or sortie (5-8)
Treasure double

Acid nagas roam the underworld in search of prey, favoring the taste of innately magical creatures and spellcasters. When banded together these creatures can prepare cunning ambushes sizable enough to assault entire caravans, chasing down the survivors for leagues, gradually wearing them down with lightning assaults to exacerbate its poison.

An acid naga is 18 ft. long (“standing” at about 9 ft.) and weighs 550 pounds.
