Poisonous snakes with vivid green eyes, Serpis are a continual hazard in
the jungles and swamps. Many travelers suffer painful or deadly bites on
the lower leg or foot from these hazardous animals. High boots do offer
good protection, but most of the primitives found in the realms of the
Serpis seldom have such footwear. These snakes avoid larger creatures
unless surprised or very hungry. When surprised, Serpis rely on the hypnotic
qualities of their scales to fend off attackers. The scales constantly form
colorful patterns in reds, yellows, blues and greens, and no two patterns
are ever the same.

Size: 1-10'

Weight: 2-12 lbs.

In addition to their hypnotic scales the Serpis have a poisonous bite. The
venom is an insinuative hemotoxin. The victim must make a Con feat check
with a +1 penalty to resist the poison. The onset time is 5 minutes.
