Combat

Nagas favor spells over other forms of combat. Because they are almost always found in the lairs they guard and know well, they can arrange most encounters to suit their wishes.

Water nagas prefer to stay mostly concealed in a body of water while they launch a spell attack.

Poison (Ex): Bite, Fortitude save (DC 17); initial and secondary damage 1d8 temporary Constitution.

Spells: Water nagas cast spells as 7th-level sorcerers but never use fire spells.
