Treadlers

Appearance
Treadlers are small, maggot-like creatures with hundreds of
squirming legs. They are between two and four feet in length
usually, the longest ever recorded measuring an impressive seven
feet from tip-to-tail. A treadler's skin is pale white and
covered in short stubble. Their bodies are rotund and elongated,
tapering from the widest point in the middle down towards either
end. Treadler's mouths are naught but small, round holes filled
with cracked and broken teeth, flattened for grinding. Treadlers
have only one eye, positioned on the left side of their head,
creating a large blindside to their right. However, the large,
flaring nostrils mounted below thier mouths give them an acute
sense of smell. This, combined with the vibration sensing ability
of the hairs on their bodies, offer them more than enough warning
of predators.
The legs of treadlers are about three or four inches long and
segmented. They are so thin that it is a wonder that they can
support the treadler's body, but they allow the creature to move
at an interesting speed. Treadlers are capable of terrific rates
of movement, but for only a minute amount of time. They must slow
down for only a moment, however. This causes treadlers to have
the peculiar habit of walking forward in alternating speeds, one
minute, as fast as a galloping horse, the next, as slow as a one
-legged dog. Like their bodies, treadlers' legs are milky white.

Additional Information
Treadlers reside in large cities, in the run-down workhouses
where hundreds of workers sit in rows spinning and sewing cloths
on treadle-powered machines.

A group of humans living in a mountainous area have spent generations mining, drinking home made liquor, and generally not spreading the gene pool around enough. The end result is a sub-race of humans who no longer have necks, rather their heads protrude from the upper portion of the torso between the shoulders. They have beards, and lacking the ability to turn their heads, can only see what they are directly facing. They are simple and to the point, and direct to the point of bluntness.
