Kinda nifty. You always need at least one giant earthworm... I like the way that the Cult of Gaia is somewhat on the right track, in a lopsided sort of way. It's entirely possible, in fact probable, that some of the microplants and other things that live in symbiosis with the Worm either were shed or evolved to a point where they didn't need the Worm any more... thus giving rise to some types of plants.

I checked. I can't find one either. It is a wonderfully well written cliche with some nice elements. Again, I either would of made it a scroll so I could add related things (like the Cult which seems to dominate the write up) or made the cult a seperate linked post. Go to Comment
Hmmm..I actually have mixed feelings on this one. It manages to cover all the Elder Worm cliches. However, its well written as usual, providing all the necessary turns-of-the-phrase and visuals. And I havent seen a monstrous worm on Strolens yet, so...there has to be one! Go to Comment
I can see those long, proud necks adorned with torcs and rings of gold.
Nice little African vibe. Cockaigne plant is nifty too!
I love them!
I hope its not something I missed, but I REALLY can see them as musicians and lovers of music in general, with unique and unmistakable sounds and instruments, echoing through the savanah. Go to Comment

Upon entering the deep underrealm of Udnalor, one must first pass through the upper halls, which were the residences of the gnomes in days of past glories. Now they have abandoned the fading tapestries to the worms and moles, and an uncanny silence reigns, laid over the oaken tables like the thick layers of dust and humus.
There may be creatures which now inhabit these areas: nests livid with giant maggots, rats and other vermin.
The watchtowers and passageways which lead to the Overground are frequently trodden, however. After all it takes a great many small humanoids to hoist a single giant rabbit corpse back through the fathoms of earth.
The gnomes primarily hunt giant rabbits with bows and arrows tipped with the subterranean poisons concocted by their best alchemists.
