Spit Acid (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). The acidnewt spits acid at a creature within 10 feet of it. The creature must make a DC 11 Dexterity saving throw, taking 9 (2d8) acid damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Acidnewts are amphibious humanoids native to acid lakes in volcanic regions that are closely related to firenewts. Their bodies are covered in a thin coat of acidic slime and they are able to spit globs of acid at their foes.
Acidnewts are slim and tend to be just over five feet in height. They have smooth skin in mottled shades of green and yellow with frog-like heads on long serpentine necks. Their bodies are long and glossy with no scales, they have short plump arms and legs.
The acidic slime covering their bodies mean that acidnewt warriors either wear no armour or hardened leather plates. Typically they carry wooden shields and scimitars with wooden hilts. They might also use wood-hafted javelins and spears.
