"The Blessings of Zufa be upon you", a frequent curse/insult.

Death Mask

This clay is used to form death masks. The corpse's face is moulded with the clay and the resulting impression fired. The mask now can be used as the focus for many different necromantic enchantments including the ability to converse with the departed spirit, to wear the mask and take on his likeness, or even to call back the dead.

Related to Preserver - Small creatures placed within the vessel will be kept dormant and alive for the length of the spell. This allows for transport of such creatures over great distances, or for use as weapons. One could store venomous snakes, plauge rats, scorpions, etc. Go to Comment

Guardian of the Afterlife
(Major pottery related magic)

Forms either an infantryman, cavalryman or mount of terra cotta bound to the spirit of a named individual.

In life, these figures are useless - their utility comes in the afterlife where they will provide the bound spirit members of a host it can use in battles there.

More mundanely, for religions where this is not an issue, the figure will function as a weak golem used to defend crypts and gravesites. Although not able to sustain much damage, it can strike as well as a seasoned warrior, and there is nothing stopping improvements such as armour or magical spells from being applied. In this application, the figure will not leave the area of the grave.

Apart from being giant, I think it needs a little more spark to stand out as a submission.

Why would magical fire not work well? I would expect the forest of quills to incinerate quite nicely.

Certainly an echo of Arthur. I agree with Scras.

A really cool - forgive the pun - creature with lots of potential - I like it!

It does suffer from some odd phrasings and dropped words.
"Its frozen blue skin is almost as hard as crystal"

"Grinding its joints together almost as if it intended to cause audible pain for those who were near enough to hear."

It grinds its joints...

Apart from these minor quibbles, a great sub!

Heh, maybe in time the girl becomes the queen of the monkeys, using her human intelligence to lead them in a war of revenge against the orcs :)

An interesting idea with hints of Jungle Book.

Keep in mind the turnover of goats due to bad weather, predation and other factors. You will need to add a fudge factor to the goat count....

A nation of crossdressers

This really comes from an ancient Chinese novel. Imagine during the PCs' travels, they come to a place where the gender roles are completely reversed. What adventures will the PCs encounter in such a place?
