Detect Thoughts (Su)

A dark naga can continuously use detect thoughts as per the spell (caster level 9th; Will DC 18 negates). The save DC is Charisma-based.

Dark nagas are immune to any form of mind reading, such as that granted by detect thoughts. This ability also grants a +2 racial bonus on all saves against charm effects.

Sting—injury; save Fort DC 19; frequency 1 round; effect sleep for 2d4 minutes; cure 1 save.


Dark nagas cast spells as 7th-level sorcerers.
