Sacred Serpent

These majestic creatures are more akin to a wingless dragon than a snake, but behave similar to their beast cousins. Sacred snakes are the more temperamental of the sacred beasts, often rising up when intruders are present, and making it clear the serpent is willing to strike if provoked.

Actions

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d10 + 4) damage plus 14 (4d6) poison damage, and the target must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 minute. If the target is grappled by the sacred serpent’s constrict attack, a hit with its bite will be a critical hit.

Constrict. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) damage, and if the target is the same size or smaller than the sacred serpent, it is grappled (escape DC 15). Until the grappled ends, the target is restrained and the sacred serpent can’t constrict another target.
