Way of the snake[edit]

When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you gain proficiency in the Animal Handling skill and with the poisoner’s kit.

Additionally, you learn the hissing of the snake language. You have the ability to communicate in a limited manner with snakes. They can understand the meaning of your words.You have advantage on all Charisma checks you make to influence them and in Wisdom Checks to understand them.

Messenger of the Gods[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, you gain the service of a spirit sent by the Snake God to watch over you. The spirit assumes the form and game statistics of a poisonous snake, and it always obeys your commands, which you can give telepathically while it is within 100 feet of you. While the snake bodie is wrapped around your body, you gain blindsight with a range of 10 feet and advantage in all saving throws to avoid the poisoned condition. While wrapped around your body, the snake can’t be targeted by any attack or other harmful effect; only you can cast spells on it; it can’t take damage; and it is incapacitated. You can see through the snake eyes, hear what it hears and sense the world in the way it senses, while it is within 100 feet of you. The snake doesn’t require sleep. While it is within 100 feet of you, it can awaken you from sleep as a bonus action.

In combat, you roll initiative for the snake, and control how it acts. If it is slain by a creature, you gain advantage on all attack rolls against the killer for the next 24 hours. The snake vanishes when it dies, if you die, or if the two of you are separated by more than 1000 feet. At the end of a short or long rest, you can call the snake back to you—no matter where it is or whether it died—and it reappears within 5 feet of you.
