Spirit Snake in a Basket

Aura moderate evocation; CL 11th
Slot none; Price 23,800 gp; Weight 1 lb. 


On first glance, this item appears to be nothing more than a small covered basket, similar to the type a lady might use for her sewing supplies. Once per day, when the lid is removed and the command word is spoken, a 10-foot long force snake slithers forth from the basket to attack at your command. It attacks as a constrictor snake with a BAB of +13, and deals 1d8+10 points of damage with both its bite and its constriction. The snake has AC 22, 63 hp, and can move up to 80 feet away from its basket. When the snake takes 63 hp of damage, or after 11 rounds, whichever happens first, it will dissipate and retreat to the basket. The snake needs 24 hours to re-coalesce before it can be released again.
