result of yuan-ti experimentation and cross-breeding, the ti-khana is
a variation on the basic stock of the deinonychus dinosaur. These creatures
resemble their ancestors: lizard-like reptiles that walk on their hind
legs. Their bodies are slightly longer than that of a deinonychus, reaching
about 14 feet in length, while they stand about 8 feet tall and weigh
around 900 pounds. Thick, colorful scales cover their skin, and two long
fangs jut out from among their tearing teeth.
leaps at prey like a deinonychus, tearing with its back claws (counting
as a single rake attack), grasping with its forearms, and biting with
its terrible jaws -- adding a toxic venom to the deinonychus's already
fearsome attack routine.
(Sp): A ti-khana can produce the following effects at will.
Poison: As the spell cast by a 6th-level sorcerer.
Form: The ti-khana can assume the form of a Tiny to Large viper (see
the Snake entry in Appendix 1: Animals of the Monster Manual).
This ability is similar to a shapechange spell cast by a 19th-level
sorcerer but allows only viper forms. The ti-khana uses its own or the
viper's poison, whichever is more potent.
The ti-khanas creates a compulsion effect targeting one creature within
30 feet. The subject must succeed at a Will save (DC 12) or gain an aversion
to snakes for 10 minutes. Affected subjects must stay at least 20 feet
from any snake, yuan-ti, or ti-khanas, alive or dead; if already within
20 feet, they move away. A subject can overcome the compulsion by succeeding
at another DC 12 Will save, but still suffers deep anxiety. This causes
a -4 reduction to Dexterity until the effect wears off or the subject
is no longer within 20 feet of a snake or yuan-ti. This ability is otherwise
similar to antipathy as cast by a 16th-level sorcerer. Ti-khanas
are treated as yuan-ti for purposes of the Aversion ability.
(Ex): Bite, Fortitude save (DC 15); initial and secondary damage 1d6
