The soft light of the moon overhead reveals an enormous moth, its shimmering green wings marked with white spots.
Many believe the luna moth to be an elven myth. Few mortals have ever seen this fabled beast, for it is invisible except in moonlight. Luna moths are favored by elves, sprites, and other fey folk as mounts.
In the light of the moon, this beautiful creature appears to be an enormous moth with shimmering green wings and a plump, white body. White eye spots dot each of the four wings, and the hind wings curve gracefully away from the body like long tails. The wings span 10 feet from tip to tip and 15 feet from the front of the forewings to the end of the tail on the hind wings. A luna moth weighs 250 pounds.


Luna moths are not great fighters, relying on their natural invisibility and sleep dust to avoid predators and to stalk prey. When forced to fight, luna moths will slam prey with their wings and try to use their sleep dust to neutralize multiple threats.
Natural Invisibility (Su): A luna moth is invisible except while in direct moonlight. This ability is constant, allowing a luna moth to remain invisible even when attacking. This ability is inherent and not subject to the invisibility purge spell.
See Invisible (Su): A luna moth can see any invisible or ethereal objects or beings within its range of vision, as if they were normally visible.
Sleep Dust (Su): Once per day, a luna moth can release sleep-inducing dust from theunderside of its wings, filling a 20-foot-radius spread. This dust causes a magical slumber to come upon 4 Hit Dice worth of creatures within thearea (Will DC 14 negates). Its effect is otherwise identical to the sleep spell. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Skills: Luna moths have a +4 racial bonus on Move Silently and Spot checks.
*Luna moths gain a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks in moonlight. (They are naturally invisible under all other light conditions.)

Training a Luna Moth

A luna moth requires training before it can bear a rider in combat. To be trained, a luna moth must have a friendly attitude toward the trainer (this can be achieved through a successful Diplomacy check). Training a friendly luna moth requires six weeks of work and a DC 20 Handle Animal check. Riding a luna moth requires an exotic saddle. A luna moth can fight while carrying a rider, but the rider cannot also attack unless he or she succeeds on a ride check.

Carrying Capacity: A light load for a luna moth is up to 230 pounds; a medium load, 231–460 pounds; and a heavy load, 461–690 pounds. A luna moth cannot fly at full speed when carrying more than a light load.
