Temple of Lathander Level 3

Spirit Nagas and Banshees roam level 3 of Lathander’s Temple. Spirit Nagas are poisonous but otherwise pose little threat. Banshees can only be damaged by magic weapons +1 or greater and are immune to cold and lightning based spells.

Once you reach this level any food items you have in your inventory will become rotten. You also won’t be able to rest as your dreams are filled with nightmarish visions.

SN) Spirit Nagas.

GS) Groaning Spirits (Banshees).
