Description (Initial Observations): The Choslith is a mutated snake that is covered in 5 - 10 inch needle-like spikes. It is a constrictor and attacks by enveloping its prey and constricting around them. Once it has wrapped itself once around the prey it will start to bite it as well. The Choslith hunt by smell and are just a deadly at dark as in the light of day. They are found in all climates except arctic.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: The Choslith will roll to hit with the coils and if it is successful it will have ensnared its victim. The following turn the Choslith will attempt one additional coil per turn up to the maximum. Each coil will do its damage individually. To remove a coil the victim must roll a Strength Context. The Chotslith has a +4 modifier to that roll.
