The Naga: A History of Slithery Snakes in RPGs

This week we have a guest post by Clave Jones looking at the history of the Naga.

Indiana Jones famously hated snakes. But no one hates snakes more than my dad. Luckily, my dad has never ran across a Naga, or he’d absolutely flip his lid. Naga is sanskrit for snake, which already tells us a lot. But while we are at it, why don’t we dig into Naga lore a bit more deeply, exploring the origins of the Naga, a staple of many of our favorite RPGs.
