The snakeman (subspecies of snake) is a playable race specific to Slash'EM Extended. They can be any role and alignment, and they start with intrinsic poison resistance and swimming. Despite their name, they can also be female. Snakemen can wrap enemies in melee, preventing them from getting away.

Snakemen do not have feet to kick with.

Their maximum stats are as follows:

Strategy

Other than their starting intrinsics, snakemen can use their wrap attack to stop monsters from fleeing, or drown and instakill them if there is water. All snake-class monsters start out peaceful to them and can be eaten without a penalty, and eating humans is permitted as well. Just don't use that blessed genocide scroll on the letter S!
