Yuan-ti speak their own language, plus Common, Draconic, and
Spell-Like Abilities: 1/day-animal trance, cause fear,
deeper darkness, entangle, neutralize poison, suggestion, and
polymorph other. These abilities are as the spells cast by an
8th-level sorcerer (save DC 13 + spell level).
Psionics (Sp): All yuan-ti can produce the following effects
- Detect Poison: As the spell cast by a 6th-level sorcerer.
- Alternate Form: The yuan-ti can assume the form of a Tiny
to Large viper. This ability is similar to a shapchange
spell cast by a 19th-level sorcerer but allows only viper
forms. If the yuan-ti has a poisonous bite of its own, it
uses its own or the viper's poison, whichever is
- Chameleon Power: The yuan-ti can change the coloration of
itself and its equipment to match its surroundings.
- Produce Acid: The yuan-ti can exude acid from its body,
dealing 1d6 points of damage to anything it touches. The
acid becomes inert when it leaves the yuan-ti's
- Aversion: The yuan-ti creates a compulsion effect
targeting one creature within 30 feet. The subject must
succeed at a Will save (DC 17) or gain an aversion to
snakes for 10 minutes. Affected subjects must stay at
least 20 feet from any snake or yuan-ti, alive or dead;
if already within 20 feet, they move away. A subject can
overcome the compulsion by succeeding at another DC 17
Will save, but still suffers deep anxiety. This causes a
-4 reduction to Dexterity until the effect wears off or
the subject is no longer within 20 feet of a snake or
yuan-ti. This ability is otherwise similar to antipathy
as cast by a 16th-level sorcerer.
Skills: *Yuan-ti using chameleon power receive a +8
circumstance bonus to Hide checks.
