Amusing. It makes me want to invent a party game. Something similar to hot potatoe. Go to Comment

The starved rat? You mean Muzzled Mouse?
I think that Muzzled Mouse was a little more on the disturbing side of these sorts of items, while this is a touch more whimsical. ;) Go to Comment

This one needs to be changed to a Lifeform category critter.

You can see it happening. Once the critters exist, they will be used this way. Shudder. Go to Comment

This is, perhaps, one of the odder posts here. It deserves to see the light of day, just for the cringe and the chuckle factor Go to Comment

You know,this item is actually worthy of a full 5/5,but cruelty to animals has always been a big turn off for me,so I'm going to have to deduct one point for that. I apologize if you think that's an an insult,but my little biases rule me with a firm hand. Go to Comment

An awesomely well done post Wogden. It is entertaining and at the same time makes us question why we are entertained by screaming rodents bursting into flames. The backstory is well done, avoiding any one blame for the creation of the rodents.

Wodgen, you should be ashamed of yourself - that is truly evil - funny though

I must say, I do like the multiple theories on the Shrews' creation

Regarding evolutionary advantage, I agree with manfred - in fact, in a magical universe, such an ability just might evolve naturally

Sick, but I wish I'd though of it - 5/5 Go to Comment

Dude, this is GREAT stuff. I am envisioning a "Castle Argggggh" Scenario with a french taunter and everything. I'm SO using these things. I have an upcoming super-battle to wage, might be just the ticket.

On a side note, this got me so giddy, I turned into surfer dude for a brief moment.

I enjoy ecosystyems, and never thought of a component such as this. I have to give you full points for this Wogden, it can be no other way. Go to Comment

This a damn entertaining read and a fun idea.

I could see these things evolving, what predator would eat and exploding animal.

This post deserves more attention. Go to Comment

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
