make it of moonlight


I need to give the hero some magical way of deal with the nightmare creatures.  Something like -- oh, a bridle of moonlight.    Or something equally magical.

I have a way for him to learn how it's done.  (It involves a ghost.) What I don't have is a way for him to do it.

grouse, grouse, grumble

And of course it's not a world where he can just go buy it.  And his companions are two knights and a scholar, not a wizard in their number.  Not to mention that he's not in a position to find one to help.

Going to need some work there.
