Adaptive Strike [free-action] (divine, polymorph, transmutation) The naunet chooses adamantine, cold iron, or silver; its melee Strikes count as that type for 1 minute or until it uses Adaptive Strike again.

Change Shape [one-action] (concentration, divine, polymorph, transmutation) The naunet can take the appearance of any Small, Medium, or Large animal, beast, or humanoid. This doesn’t change its Speed or its attack and damage bonuses with its Strikes but might change the damage type its Strikes deal.

Confounding Slam (divine, emotion, enchantment, mental) A creature hit by the naunet’s tentacle Strike is stupefied 2 for 1d4 rounds (DC 24 Will negates). If the creature was already stupefied in this way, the duration extends by 1 round instead. A chaotic creature is only stupefied 1 instead.

Constrict [one-action] 1d8+8 bludgeoning, DC 26

Ancient Immortals

Among the numerous types of immortals that dwell in the Great Beyond, the proteans are surely some of the oldest.

They’ve waged war against the inevitable aeons from the advent of their first creation, and speak longingly of that time before the gods themselves imposed order upon reality.

About

Pugnacious and powerfully muscled, naunets serve as scouts and rank-and-file troops of protean armies.

Resembling a thick salamander with a wide head, a powerful tail, and tentacles tipped with snapping jaws in place of rear legs, naunets are the most bestial of the proteans and occupy one of their lowest castes. Naunets are 12 feet long and weigh 900 pounds.

All proteans are prone to unpredictable fits and unexpected action, but compared to most others, naunets are much more bestial. Always ready for a fight, naunets pride themselves in acting swiftly and Striking before unpleasant distractions like diplomacy can blunt a combat’s beginning.
