The thing that struck me first is -- well.. its original. There are very, very few mentions of this nature in most roleplaying genre's which makes this so unique (and its well written too!)

Thank you for the help everyone! I'm trying to figure out how to delete a post so that I can re-contribute it into the two seperate articles as mentioned with elaboration on each! One worry of mine was that if I write too much it would.. be well, too much!

Bobeerin
Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Tundra/ Arctic)
Tundra's comment on 2011-08-31 09:25 AM


Bobeerin would most likely be quite good in tracking out these locations, and they would make handy pocket-sized familiars. Or I could even see them being led around on snazzy harnesses, with a bell. Such an creature is certaintly capable and intelligent enough to recognize his master (should it be in a world where magic and mages are commonplace and it was indeed tamed! - the one in particular magic is more rare, at least to the average denizen of the world). The Bobeerin's little horns may be used as 'magic detectors' and may vibrate faintly when made into necklaces and glow a faint blue.

The horns not only detect magic, but regulate the flow of it through the creatures body, always imbued with at the very least, a trace of it, even long after the rest of the bones had turned to dust. It remains capable of absorbing magic until its been burned by fire. A light coating of perpetual ash then gathers over the horns. This is part of the reason why Bobeerin, while capable of spouting out miniature fireballs, do not do so often, as they may risk singing their own horns, which would lead to their own potential demise.

Bobeerin
Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Tundra/ Arctic)
Tundra's comment on 2011-09-01 08:15 AM
Origin: Bobeerin are indeed planar creatures. They were driven from their plane (a vast, vertile green space, with all manner of giant plants, ripe with magic), there their lush little furry bodies would spend many a day in lazy drift through stream beds, the hair acting as a suspensory raft to keep them afloat, heading from one shore to another in vast herds. Their natural predator there, a wild-dog one could call it, had become severely overpopulated, resulting in the Bobeerin fleeing to another plane, unable to return home.

In current conditions, they have no natural enemies. However, it has taken them a long time to adapt to the climates and circumstances of the cold wasteland they find themselves in now, and many a Bobeerin had died from the original herd that had crossed over. Crossing over in itself is a dangerous task.

Bobeerin numbers would most likely be very few, and wouldn't present a particular point of interest to those who live in the tundra. (though this could be easily modified - they could be hunted for their little horns, or to be caged as exotic pets with fleeting lifespans, due to the exact food source not being known)

Bobeerin are capable of reason, and intelligence. They have genetic memory that is passed down to newborn Bobeerin - hence the little ones knowing that they cannot return home, and since they cannot control which plane they land on when travelling, they might end up in a magma infested one. Travelling in such a fashion tends to zap the magic from their bodies, and in order to build up enough to do so again may not be accumulated in the Bobeerins lifespan. Bobeerin are capable of rational thought - if properly tamed and raised, they may even understand speech. Go to Comment
Skirrin
Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Water)
Tundra's comment on 2011-08-31 09:49 AM
Skirrin's are edible, provided you can sever the head from the body, but the meat has an intensely sour, unappetizing taste to it. The bodies of Skirrin that come ashore are occasionally dried and sold off in something not unlike jerky.

Each fish measures about eight or nine inches long. There have been
accounts of some growing up to around fifteen, though bullet fish of this size and age are rare given their pen chance for accidental land-running.

Skirrin are blind. They have multiple fins at the ends of their tails that allow them to accumulate an incredible speed in a matter of heartbeats. The Skirrin are alerted to danger by acute hearing coupled with two small flaps covered with fibers at either sides of its body which catch up on sonic vibrations of sound through the water. If these vibrations are strong enough, it triggers an flight reaction in the Skirrin.

Rivers are not their natural habitat. Originally, the Skirrin come from
the deep ocean, where they were able to flee from predators without ramming anything (or anyone) in their path. In the ocean, their natural predator is an Akaat. A bulbuous, gelatinous creature. An Akaat embeds its prey into its flabby belly, where it becomes stuck. Its slowly sucked into its stomach, and devoured over time. Its a tedious affair, through the Akaat's own body works by draining the nutrients off of that which it eats, making the Skirrin its favoured meal. The Skirrin's head, a solid, thick base is a great source of calcium - something that the Akaat cannot manufacture on its own.

They would migrate once yearly to the warm waters of reefs, where they would lay their eggs. The hatchingling Skirrin, barely half an inch big, are swept up by the
seasonal currents from the reefs into the deeper ocean where they either join with existing shoals, or form independant ones.

Due to the abundance of not only food, but egg-laying opportunity within the rivers the Skirrin have managed to survive, and would indeed be a pest were it not for the yearly fishing competitions that were held. They have managed to adapt to their surroundings: despite it not being salt-water. Surely, they could return to the ocean if they followed the river upstream, but they have the perfect surroundings for procreation right where they are. Instinct drives them to stay put.
