General information: Blood nagas are woodland cavern dwellers, typically found alone or in small groups. They enjoy dark places, possessing darkvision  to 60 ft., and tend to be quite cautious, as they are weaker than their brethren. They are thoroughly evil, however, and their pride and cruel desires often get in the way of their better judgment. Blood nagas can see and attack into the ethereal plane.

At will, blood nagas may spit a spray of blood in a cone (1 ft. wide at the origin, 30 ft. range, 15 ft. wide at the end) that can send opponents to the ethereal plane for 1-4 rounds if they fail a save against poison. Blood nagas can only use their stinger against ethereal opponents, who must save against poison or be paralyzed for 1-4 turns. Spraying blood causes 1 hit point of damage to the naga.

Blood nagas are able to employ druidic magic at the 5th level of ability possessing four 1st, three 2nd, and two 3rd level spells per day. Their bite is fairly weak, doing only 1-4 hit points of damage, and they prefer to feast upon paralyzed prey.

Languages: Blood nagas speak their own language as well as common.

Physical description: Like other nagas, blood nagas are large snakes with human facial features. They have dull scales and tend towards grays in their almost patternless skins. They possess prominent stingers at the end of their tails, resembling a scorpion’s. Blood nagas average 12 feet in length and weigh between 200 and 400 pounds.
