Protection. In a desert environment, the strong survive. The sandgrazer's are nearly defenseless. The symbiosis that they shre with the Lemieans is simple, they each have something the other needs. The desert tribes need a source of water, which the sandgrazer provides. The sandgrazer needs protection from predators and other hazards, which the lemiean's provide.

I was thinking that the glads would naturally drop off due to weight. After a certain weight they would simply fall.

The do eat, but do not seem to eat as often as most animals would. In a desert you wil lfind a lot of animals eating certain plants that horde water to get their water intake. The sandgrazer doesn't need to do this as they horde their own water, therefore they would not be required ot eat as much as a normal desert animal. They eat yes, but not nearly as much.

They are more of a domesticated animal. They have very little fight in them and enjoy the attention and protection the Lemiean's give them. They are not like their difficult cousins, the camel. They will allow only certain people to ride them and if they are of a certain weight, to heavy and they will just stand there or sit.

I hope that helped. Go to Comment

A nice post. I have many questions :-)

Why do the glands naturally drop off? In a desert, I would want to keep my extra glands. And why don't they need to eat? How do they behave around the Lemeain's? Camels are supposed to be mean animals - are these also? Will they permit Lemeain's to ride them, or only to steal their glands? What do they get out of their partnership with the Lemeain's? Not water or food I imagine? Go to Comment

Thanks, it is a nice addition. I like the idea of a camel-based creature. They are, to me, exotic creatures. Go to Comment

Descriptive nature was well written. I got a good feel for what these creatures look like. More information, and perhaps some backround would have been nice, though t'was a nice overall piece.

I want to know what kind of sound it makes. You could use that to mess with the players!

Domestication: what are they used for? Being eight feet tall might not be the easiest thing to farm with. Like elephants, can they use their horn to manipulate things? Drag stuff? Used to pull wagons... Go to Comment

The sound is a long and deep blart for lack of an exact replicated sound. It is deep similar to a tuba sound. Very clear and resonant, not hollow sounding.

I like the details, the horn, the bleating, the longer front legs, the back leg claws... Go to Comment

I like the details, like the different types of ants, their roles and their physical differences.

Mmmmm. ant eggs! my favorite! Go to Comment

Good details, though the color-coding really does not fit - ants use pheromones almost exclusively to communicate, and have quite poor vision.

The ant egg is a nice touch. Overall, a solid sub.

While I don't dislike this item, I felt it was quite similar to the Stonekin ring you just posted but less good (less atmospheric and less interesting powers). That's why I only gave it 3/5 (I gave the other 5/5). Go to Comment

It would be good in the Court of Queen Yocasta.

What if there was something like this, where if it was worn too long, (paticulary if the impersonated person had been murdered) the person would turn into that other person inside and out? *has creation idea*

Hours
1 to 4-As you described
5-6 The person can do a perfect imitation
6-7 General uneasyness
8-10 Other thoughts start coming into one's head.The wise person will take the choker off now
11-12-Two spirits in one body, taking the choker off needs a real act of will
13-For the wearer, death, as their very spirit,their very memories, turn into that of who they are impersonating?

What if wearing something of that type was a penalty for murder,and the PC's were sent to rescue a murderer (or innocent victim wrongly convicted) from justice? Go to Comment

I failed to put in any plot hooks, for that I am sorry. I wil lremedy that here if I can.

Iain, I agree on the surface they are similar but they were actually designed months apart and for different gaming sessions.

Thanks for the votes though. Go to Comment
