A strange little creature, a mooncoil resembles a grey-scaled snake roughly 2' long. Snail-like, it possesses a pearly coiled shell the size of a man's two fists pressed together; it will hide in its shell when threatened by anything larger than a small cat, but if disturbed will retaliate. Mooncoils drain blood from their prey.

A mooncoil's bite inflicts only 1-2 hit points of damage, with a poison that causes unconsciousness for an hour. However, twice a day it may cast a silvery magic missile as if a first level Magic-User.
