Bestiary Spirit of Bone Naga 5e d&d
Bone naga 5e was an undead form of nagas. They resulted from a naga’s resurrection process being disrupted by a necromantic ritual explained by the yuan-ti that converted them into servants with a fraction of the capabilities that the original nagas held.

Bone nagas: They are undead. It means that the element of compulsion comes into play: Whatever purpose the bone Naga was created for (probably by)yuan-ti. It will become obsessed with serving (those men ruin everything). It may make less rational decisions when fighting, even though it is bone nagas.
What is the Naga monster?
The Naga are large snakes with shoulders, arms, and a torso that looks like a humanoid. While they keep their heads and torsos above the ground, Naga can move faster by lowering their bodies or using their hands to propel them. Their torsos are adorned with armor and jewelry. The naga males have broader hoods than their shoulders, while the naga females have shorter hoods and more prominent faces.
Many nagas believe that the Sweetest Harmony is a principle that describes the perfect balance between the body, mind, and spirit. It is possible to achieve that balance if you combine your mental and physical preparation. Mental fortitude and physical strength support each other so that mind and body cannot exist apart. In practice, however, most Naga are more comfortable with one trait than the others.
*Ability score increases. Your Constitution score goes up by 2, and your Intelligence score goes up by 1.
*Age: Naga, like humans, reach adulthood in their teens. Nagas don’t show any signs of age beyond their teens, except for growing larger. A naga could therefore live over 100 years.
*Alignment: Most naga align either naturally or neutrally evil.
*Size: When standing straight up, Naga is approximately 5 feet tall. However, their total body length, from head to tail, is between 10 and 20 feet. Your size is medium.
*Speed: Your walking speed base is 30 feet
*Speed Burst: You can speed up by lowering your body to the ground and propelling yourself using your arms. You can speed up your walking speed by making use of both your hands.
*Natural Weapons: You can use your constricting serpentine and fanged maw as natural weapons to make unarmed strikes. Your bite deals piercing damage equal to 1d4 + the Strength modifier. The target must also make a Constitution saving throw (DC 8, your proficiency bonus, + your Constitution modifier). The target takes 1d4 poison if they fail to save.
With your constrict attack, you can hit the target to deal bludgeoning injury equal to 1d6 + Strength modifier. The target is then grappled (escape DC 8, your proficiency bonus, + your Strength modifier). The target is bound until the grapple ends.
*Unfailing endurance: Poisoning is not possible as you are immune to poison damage.
*Poison Affinity: You can gain proficiency using the poisoner’s toolkit.
*Languages: You can read, write, and speak Common and Naga.
Is Bone Naga resistant to paralysis?
They are more resistant to paralysis and exhaustion than bone nagas, but that doesn’t change their fighting behavior. They are extremely intelligent. These living nagas are more susceptible to spellcasters, so that these targets will be given a higher priority.
Although bone nagas in 5e d&d aren’t as poisonous as living nagas due to their bite, they still use this default action. Although bone nagas still have the hold person bite combo against smaller parties, it is less likely to work due to their lower spell save DC. They will still try it, but that is part of their compulsion for the same behavior when they were alive.
Former spirit nagas will use lightning bolts in the same manner and for the same reasons as living spirit nagas. A former guardian of Naga does not have a flame strike. What would an undead creature do, casting sacred flame? A guardian naga that has become a bone Naga is a sad, defeated thing that won’t bother casting spells. You could make it cast a command and then issue commands that don’t make sense.
Bone Naga 5e vs. Living Naga
Because bone nagas are less challenging than living nagas, players may encounter them at lower levels. In d&d Sleep has a greater chance of being successful. However, if the bone Naga behaves similarly to its life, it might still consider sleep ineffective and decide not to use it. It may think it has a greater chance of casting a charm person successfully than it does. That is because it tried (and failed) to use it in the same way as a living spirit Naga.
Spellcasting: The Naga is a level 5 spellcaster (spell save DC 12, +4 to hit with spell attacks). It requires only verbal components to cast its spells. Its spellcasting ability is Intelligence, and it possesses the subsequent wizard 5e spells prepared:
