Snakebiter Arrow


Type: AmmunitionPrice: 306 gpWeight: Slot: Slotless

Magical properties

Caster level: 12Aura: strong divination


This animated wood and metal snake squirms and hisses when handled, attempting to bite its holder just as a real snake might. To use the snakebiter arrow as a projectile, the bearer must first succeed at a DC 10 Handle Animal or wild empathy check to get the snake to shape itself into a +1 seeking arrow or a +1 seeking bolt (this is considered a trick known by the snake) for 1 minute. Failure means the snake attacks the bearer for 1 round, using the statistics of a Tiny viper familiar (Pathfinder RPG Bestiary 133). A target struck by the projectile must succeed at a saving throw or be affected by a powerful variant black adder venom (Fortitude DC 20). Normally, these items are carried in a pouch rather than a quiver to prevent them from getting loose.
