Jade Sea SnakeLevel 10 Uncommon

This coiled serpent of jade can become a mount for several riders and carry them on land and sea.

Wondrous Item        5,000 gp

Power (Conjuration) Daily (Standard Action)

You use this figurine to conjure a Huge sea snake (see Jade Sea Snake for statistics). As a free action, you can spend a healing surge when activating this item to give the creature temporary hit points equal to your healing surge value.

While riding the jade sea snake, you breathe underwater as if it were air and can speak normally under water. The sea snake can carry six Medium or Small characters. If more or larger characters are placed on it, the creature disappears and cannot be conjured again until after an extended rest. See Adventurer's Vault, page 180, for complete details on figurines of wondrous power.
