Conchyliated Rat, Rattus Ostrea The Conchyliated Rat, or Clam-head Rat, stands 10 cm at the shoulder. Its body is a meter long, with a tail three times that. Unlike their black, furry bodies, Their heads are covered with something akin to mollusk-like shells, excepting the eyes, and terminating in a cruelly hooked beak. This shell, often barbarically and incorrectly referred to as the rat's skull, can be cracked open to reveal lustrous, iridescent nacre. In far off lands, the rats have begun to be de-beaked, and farmed to feed the ever growing hunger for clam-headed jewelery.

Thrivval (THRIV-val): Uncannily resembling a cross between a duck and a pinecone, the Thrivval lairs in misty swamps and wetlands. Their eggtooth never atrophies, eventually devoloping into a diminutive horn. The Thrivval's feathers have adapted into the hard, bony ridges that protect it from predators. Thrivvals burrow in the mudbanks near streams, using their shovel-like wings. They then stick their highly sensitive eggtooth out of the mud, and should any animal pass within a few feet, the Thrivval bursts out, rushing in to bite it. This often leads them to bite the feet of travellers with their sharp beaks, earning them the nickname "Toe eaters," among colonists. Because of their abundance in and around humans, many Thrivval-related proucts have been devoloped. Thrivval-plate boots are now high fashion, and their wings make perfect gardening tools. The Thrivval has also become a popular subject in children's stories, often portraying the "grumpy old man" character.

Perhaps it is because I do not know this setting well, but it is somewhat confusing to me. I wish you'd elaborate more on the mage he was "chosen" by. Other than that, flexible, creative, and enchanting 5/5! Go to Comment

You must remember, at the time of your reading this it's unfinished, I'll go into the specialized crops they grow and their craft sooner then later. (I'm simultaneously working on gods, and other races for the campaign)

Thank you for your input however Go to Comment

Yes, maybe, boiled, but I haven't quite decided; yes, and finally, can't you pass off ANY vegetable as health food? Go to Comment

Thank you for your comments Zylithian, personally I can't think of any way to describe it, and the Image you conjoured up is very similar to my own. I will probably revisit the description later or photoshop something for clarification. Go to Comment

Moon, I am truly in debt to you. This is EXACTLY what I've needed. My campaigns tend to have a lot of "Fluff" to them, and it tends to be very player specific fluff. Go to Comment

This does not seem to fill the usual Moonhunter quality. Big spider, lots of webs, potential use. On the same note, it's been done before. Go to Comment

I like it, in particular the name. I have a very good visual of the beasts, and a great one of them either coming up during a monsoon or devouring my players. Emphasis on the latter. Go to Comment

Dwarven Mountain Pony - a small, and hardy animal well suited to living in the mountains and highlands. Able to subsist on grass and brush, with hard hooves, and nimble feet. The dwarves use them as pack animals, and to pull ore carts, and to drive bellows for their furnaces. Never ridden as dwarves like to keep both feet firmly on the ground. As stubborn and tough as the dwarves themselves. Also only about 12 hands tall (1 hand=4 inches)
