Slithering silently through the scorching sand is a horrible monster. The desert naga is a cunning, cruel monstrosity who persecutes other creatures. It uses necromancy and other dark magic to further its cause.

Blood Diamonds. This greedy snake-like creature is obsessed with gold, gemstones, and other glittery treasures. It will make deals to take possession of these priceless items, although it will rarely honor such an arrangement.

Close Stalker. Eager for treasure and corpses, the desert naga is usually found near a humanoid settlement. Ruins, hidden caves, and other desolate locations serve as convenient lairs.

Immortal Nature. A naga doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
