Level Adjustment:




Giant ants are among the hardiest and most adaptable vermin. Soldiers and workers are about 6 feet long, while queens can grow to a length of 9 feet.

Acid Sting (Ex): A giant soldier ant has a stinger and an acid-producing gland in its abdomen. If it successfully grabs an opponent, it can attempt to sting each round (+3 attack bonus). A hit with the sting attack deals 1d4+1 points of piercing damage and 1d4 points of acid damage.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a giant ant must hit with its bite attack. A giant soldier ant that wins the ensuing grapple check establishes a hold and can sting.

Skills: *Giant ants have a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent and a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks. A giant ant can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened.

Tazskan, having been frustrated that he missed the last round. But, shocked to have hit another team mate. His shock rapidly fades, having seen the darkness lift, from the Naga.

He sends his psuedodragon in to add distraction, by attacking from behind and above. With bite and claw attack.

"Go with all your strength and might, you are a true friend," Tazskan sensing his arrival, tears welling up, inwardly prepared for the worst. As he just realized he is sending a trusted companion into a very difficult situation.

Then, attacks with two green agonizing eldritch beams, at the Naga. As before, clutching the pact keeper rod acquiring extra potency. The hex as before targeting Naga's constitution.

Afterwards he then makes an expeditious retreat to the opposite side, behind cover.

Specific Action: From position Z70 commence attack. Calling his psuedodragon, Amabalis telepathically, to make one attack from R68, bite, then retreat to L63. With objective to temporary distract Naga. Then, sending two agonizing eldritch beams into the Naga.

Characters in melee, will have advantage on any saving throws, particularly on Naga magic, effecting their sight, hearing or perception. So if map is correct that includes, Velon, Mara, Cratol.
Tazskan will then make a expeditious retreat as a bonus action to Z64.

Out of Character: The psudodragon can actually deal a maximum of 1D4+2 damage. Since both Naga and Psuedodragon carry poison, therefore both immune. So effect is nullified.
