The Leonamuth    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Desert)

Perhaps they were once natural beasts, but natural beasts cannot survive the wastes of Corpsefall. No, this beast is far from natural, and for that, I believe nature is grateful.

Dwarven Pets    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Underground)

Pets mind you. Not exotic monster companions. No saddled dire-boars to be found here. No purple worm caravans.

Beardspiders    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)

Beard grooming is a life-long process divided between two schools of thought:  harsh mineral treatments or more the natural approach.  The popular naturalist approach requires beard-spiders that live off lice, fleas and other small insects.

The Hellephant    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)
DNA can be a funny thing.  Flip a gene here and the resulting offspring is sterile.  Twist this one around and the kid winds up twice as big as either parent.  And this one?  Lets just say that there‚Äôs a reason why some genetic experimentation is very, very illegal.

Changeling Wasp    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)

The nobleman was out on horseback when he came too close to a nest of Changeling wasps. The first sting made him scream and sent him falling from his horse. When he felt the second sting and was close to passing out with the pain, he thought Whatever happens now, my life of freedom is over. Even if I am not stung again,and escape being paralysed or killed I will be a girl. I will no longer have the right to choose who I marry, to carry a weapon, to join the army or to have control over my own finances.My life is ruined now.

Time Zombie    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (City/ Ruin)

Death is the fate of every birth, and life is only a brief loan of light before the eternal darkness swallows us.  The remaining years of life have been stolen from the creatures known as Time Zombies, who stalk the living in the hopes of stealing a few more years of precious life.

The Gentle Beasts    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Other)

The cries sounded like some misshapen creature being devoured alive.  Or a stillborn baby deer, somehow struggling back to life in the filthy grove where it had been abandoned, crying in infinite pain and hatred.  

As I neared the ridge, I could hear a set of shuffling, twitchy half-steps, more like pained spasms than any sort of a gait.  And when I saw it. . . Oh gods. . . It's like. . . that face. . . THAT HORRIBLE FACE!

Surgeon Birds    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Swamp)

A big flock can suck a cow bloodless in a few minutes, yet your doctor shows up carrying one around a small birdcage in the tip of his staff.  Maybe you're better off just learning to live with the kidney stones. . .

Talari Eggs    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Imagine this. You are the honored guest of the Conyamo himself and his chosen peers. You are placed at his right hand so everyone in attendance can look on you with wanting. Your every move, every breath will be watched. You are the highlight of this evening. Unfortunately, removing the talari eggs will cause you great pain. The nostrum I've just given you will not help the pain but it will burn your vocal cords so you do not disturb the dinner with your screams. With more than one talari loose inside you, you will beg for death. If you had a voice, and you will receive what you wish for. It will be a long and painful as they eat down to your hallows. I would almost pity you, but your not worthy of my pity. Do not worry though as my attendants are very skilled and will remove most of the eggs to be eaten, but not all. Enough of this dribble, be happy for tonight you are the honored guest of tonight’s celebration.

Syr Caran - Head Chef to the Conyamo

       By: manfred

Five men are herding fifteen horses down the road. They won't be very talkative, but are willing to sell a horse, or more horses if the heroes are interested. These men are horse thieves. They are already sought by regional militiamen. Anyone with a stolen horse (all are marked) may get into trouble. If found guilty, horse thieves face prison or even a hanging execution. Similar thefts have happened only a month before, and a reward is offered.
