Serpent Hands

5th-level transmutation

Casting time: 1 action

Range: Self

Components: V, S, M (poison glands of a viper)

Duration: 1 minute

This spell turns your fingers into large poisonous vipers. On your turn following the transmutation and each round thereafter, the vipers of each hand can be directed to attack opponents, one target per arm and one attack per finger. For example, an able-bodied human can attack two different opponents with five melee attacks per round each.

You are considered proficient with these attacks. Each viper causes ld6 points of piercing damage when it strikes, and if the target of the attack fails a Constitution saving throw it becomes poisoned. While the spell is in effect it is not possible for you to grab or pick up items. As a result, you cannot cast any spells that have a somatic component — and you are unlikely to be able to handle material components either — until this spell expires or is dismissed.
