Monster of the Week - Moonfall Drake

This week the Eberron Bestiary's monster is the Moonfall Drake. This unusual dragon has such a strong connection to the moons orbiting Eberron that many believe they are born from eggs fallen from the moons themselves. The strange globes of light that surround the creatures are sure to add an interesting twist to your mid-level encounters.
Here is a sneak peak:

The lithe, reptilian creature before you cautiously advances. It walks on four legs, the first two of which double as wings, a leathery membrane stretched between two elongated fingers and the creature’s body. A long tail slides behind the drake, and its scales shimmer in the moonlight.

Moonfall drakes are dragons that are said to be children the moons themselves, carried to Eberron by meteorite-like eggs. It is true that these drakes nest at impact sites, and guard over the meteorites like which lie at the centre of the dragon’s small hoard, but their otherworldly nature has never been confirmed. The meteorites that the drakes watch over, known as moonfall stones, are thought to have powerful arcane properties, so are often sought by wizards and artificers as components in complex spells and eldritch machines.
