Sleep Stalker    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Any)

Page 589, cat. Air Elementals, sub. Stalkers

Placing wards of cow tongues and sheep blood around doors and windows is said to scare off the proddingâ??s of stalkers. Many tales and childrenâ??s stories tell of the silent stalker that enters the cracked window or unlocked door in the dead of night to steal the breath from a sleeping child. Crib deaths are often blamed on this silent stalker even though it is not true.

-Essay on elementals, subsection Stalkers.

Hungry Ghosts -1    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Any)

A Hungry Ghost is born when the lower soul (the animal soul of the body, containing physical urges and violences) becomes angered and, rather than descending to the Underworld, lashes out against the living, which, in its instinctive state and having dulled senses, it percieves as enemies who have “wronged” it.

Winged Geomorphs - A type of Gargoyle    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (City/ Ruin)

There are seven or so types of lifeforms considered Gargoyles by the less informed. This is one.

The characters are wandering through the bustling crowds of Lasopolis. A street conjuror is performing a simple summoning spell, something for the kiddies. A bit of odious purple powder in the fire, an incantation and out pops a saak-lizard or a muhmentarsh, writhing from the flaming brazier. But the conjuror has only a poor grasp of the arcane magical tongue. A few stuttered syllables could lead to Other Things coming through the brazier and giving the crowd more entertainment than they had paid for...
