Treasure half standard

A fire snake resembles a normal snake and ranges in size from 2 feet to 6 feet in length. Fire snakes make their homes in fires and rarely journey more than 30 feet from such an open flame. Sages conjecture that fire snakes are some form of larval salamander from the Plane of Fire.

A fire snake’s preferred method of attack is to hide in a nearby fire and then surprise its foes as they come nearby. A fire snake attacks by biting its opponents with its sharp fangs.
