Bulral    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Tundra/ Arctic)

Bulral have the frame of a wooly mammoth, but are entirely covered with white fur like a polar bear.  Instead of a single trunk with long tusks, Bulral have no tusks and four trunks surrounding their mouth, and each trunk is barbed with small thorns.  They are fierce and solitary hunters who have a bizarre friendship with the hotheads.

Ogone flies    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)

These little buggers are the bane and blessing of adventurers.  If you find a location with lots of ogone’s, you know there is magic and magical treasure about.  However, since the average adventurer has more magic items than the normal area, the flies will hang around the adventurer and their items.

Mediaeval Style Mythical Beasts    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)

The authors of Mediaeval bestiaries were not merely concerned with providing a description of creatures. No, for them, everything in Creation had a purpose - nothing had been made without an ulterior aim: the edification and instruction of sinful man. So, each creature described is not merely an animal but a living parable, imbued with moral or religious symbolism.

A rather large armed group slowly walks the road. Unless you get to see what they transport, you could think it is a caravan with expensive goods, or the soldiers escort someone important. But this is a prisoner transport, on the way to mines, criminals on their way for punishment.

The soldiers may be willing to talk, the captain will have a few questions on you and the road, but they will keep distance, and part soon.
