A cute diversion. Let the players see shadows out of the corners of their eyes... make them think something powerful is stalking them. And let them waste their powerful magic on .... a what? Go to Comment
This reminds me of the DnD Bullette, an overwhelmingly silly creature. My munchkins loved it though, because it gave a heavy load of XP and they could LEVEL UP!
Still: I cannot deny that you have done a decent job and your imagination is good. However, this Dune Sandworm replacement does not work for me. It invokes all the wrong imagery in my mind. Go to Comment
I really like the format of this post. It's not completely original, and it's not really long and descriptive. BUT, it says everything important in very few words, wipes its feet before coming inside, and leaves a nice tip after dinner. Go to Comment
I like your description a lot. One question I have...I would think they would like to live near people if that's their favorite food, and hunting strategy (which could be in jungles or cold mountanous regions Go to Comment
Not a bad critter, but I have a problem with natural creatures which specialize in human prey.
A human population providing enough food for a bunch of squirrels to evolve eating them is not very likely - the group would either move away or attempt to exterminate the squirrels. Either would not provide a very stable diet. A magical creation or unique mutation I could believe. Go to Comment
I like these creatures in a way but I also see the issues Val raised. In particular, when you mentioned that these Selvaks fall into a deep slumber after a meal, the first thing that pops into mind is that this is the perfect time for humans to go around and exterminate them. These creatures might have a chance to work, though, in a very out-of-the-way place where human inhabitants are somehow spaced a fair bit apart so that one or two missing persons might not be easily noticed by everyone.
