    The orochi are similar to yuanti pure bloods in appearance but are more focused on their mouths.

    Poison: DC 16, initial/secondary(Unconciousness/--)
    Unhinge jaw: As a move action, the orochi can unhinge his jaw. He can use his bite attack, and cannot speak. It is a move action to rehinge
    Improved grab: If the orochi hits with his bite attack, he can make a grapple as a free action.
    Devour: If the orochi has a victim in a grapple, and his jaw is unhinged, he can attempt to eat them. A Tiny creature takes a full round action, a small 5 rounds, and a Medium a minute.

    I'm curious as to why you chose to make an Orochi a playable, apparently +0 LA race as opposed to the massive sea serpent of legend that they are usually portrayed as.

    Of course, an Orochi could easily use the Hydra stats, as it's often called the Japanese version of the Hydra.

    One question:

    Assuming the Orochi swallows a still-living creature, how much damage would it do to the creature?

    yeah, what is the effect of being devoured? I hope it's not instant kill.

    Also, logic sort of dictates that the Orochi suffer some effect for having a creature the same size occupying his stomach. Would it be considered still grappled while the foe is devoured? Would the foe count against his encumberance?

    Also, what action is it to re-hinge the jaw?

    EDIT: And I just noticed the effects of the poison. Honestly that's waaaaay to strong for a LA 0 creature. that's a very high saving throw for one thing (considering it's a HD 0, Con 12 on average), and secondly unconciousness is a major hit. You also don't note a duration of the unconciousness.

    Wow, good thing I read everyone else's posts, otherwise I would've thought of magic the gathering/kamigawa orochi.

    So how do you make traditional orochi into a PC race?
