Special Traits

Actions

  • Multiattack. The crown naga makes two bite attacks, or it casts a spell with a casting time of 1 action and makes one bite attack.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) piercing damage, and the target must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw, taking 18 (4d8) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Tactics

If it must face determined foes, a crown naga always uses defensive spells before closing with enemies. It then attempts to close quickly to bite multiple targets, seeking to poison as many enemies as possible. If opponents prove immune or resistant to the naga’s poison, it typically retreats deeper into its lair or toward known allies, while harassing pursuers with spells.

Description

A crown naga is a serpentine thing 20 feet or more in length, with two heads vaguely resembling those of human women. Its great, yellowish fangs drip foul venom, and its dual visage is distorted with a mixture of arrogance, fear, and loathing.

Cowardly and Conniving. It was only years after the Divine War that they were discovered again, quivering in their dark holes, fearful of the wrath of their dread queen. Druids dedicated to the Serpent Mother coaxed the creatures from their hiding places — by aiding the effort to restore the dismembered titan. Some crown nagas are now protected and served by some druids, who feed and house the nagas and facilitate their mating rituals.
