Special Traits

  • Keen Smell. The viper has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
  • Poison Aura. At the start of each of the viper’s turns, if the viper is not incapacitated, each creature within 20 feet of it must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) poison damage on a failed save and becomes poisoned for 1 minute, or half as much damage on a successful one. If a saving throw is successful, the creature is not affected by the viper’s Poison Aura for 24 hours.
