Combat Notes

Like most snakes, steam serpents are not aggressive to anything they cannot themselves eat, and will run rather than fight. If cornered, surprised, or outright attacked, they will fight back to defend themselves. Keep in mind their animal intelligence might interpret walking in the wrong place as an outright attack. They also go into a frenzy every few years, attacking anything that moves for a few days before settling down and returning to their more sedentary lifestyle.

Steam Serpents strike with lightning speed, injecting their opponents with a deadly venom. After striking they retreat a few paces then wait. If their target follows, they strike again and the attempt to flee. In a frenzy however they attack constantly. It is rare to find more than three steam serpents.
