Pseudo-Basilisk conversion for ACKS

Horned Serpent or Pseudo-Basilisk
% In Lair  None
Dungeon Enc: Nest 1d6
Wilderness Enc: Nest 1d6
Alignment: Neutral
Movement: 90’(30’)
Armor Class: 2
Hit Dice: 3*
Attacks: 1 spit
Damage: 1d3 + 1d4 CH loss
Save: F1
Morale: -1
Treasure Type:  None
XP: 65
A six foot long, fat, greenish-brown snake with a yellow horn on its’ nose. It
attacks by spitting acid with a range of 6 feet.  Anyone hit by the acid must
make a Save vs Breath or take an additional 1d4 Charisma loss. The
Charisma loss is permanent unless the character washes with soap and
water immediately afterwards, in which case the Charisma loss is reduced
by 1 point every two days as the skin heals.

A successful Beast Friendship, Knowledge Natural History or Naturalism
check will correctly identify the creature and know the requirements to
avoid the permanent Charisma loss.  A failure will leave the character
believing that it is a real basilisk. A successful Loremastery check will not
identify it as a pseudo-basilisk, but the character will know it does not
match the description of basilisks of legend.

 Based on the pseudo-basilisk from The Dark Eye (3rd Edition)
