Hagula    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

I try to avoid them if I can.  I see them sometimes herding their flocks of flabby grey creatures into and out of Boston harbor, and it always gives me the chills.  Briano tells me that they brought me back to life, but I can't remember it.  I can't remember a lot of stuff.  He also tells me that I was good friends with one of them once.  One of the ones that begs outside of Grand Island Bank for nickels or blood.  I can't tell you why I'm uncomfortable around them.  They're just fish.

Cecaelia    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Not all of the mermaids and sea sirens are half fish, there are other things that live in the sea

Lurdi    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Toltep walked slowly along the avenue, it would have been easier to swim along in the viaduct, but he had made it a point to not do the easy thing. All to often the easy path lead to ruin, and he had not survived so long by taking shortcuts, or the easy road. The market, what was above water, was abuzz with conversation. A large school of blood-crazed lurdi had been diverted into an ambush where the brave people had slaughtered the monsters. There was some worry, Toltep gathered, as a few had escaped.

The Usholal    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

''In a world dominated by savagery and barbarism, we alone represent civilization. Is it any wonder then that we are forced to keep the horrors of the outside world at bay?''

The Uuluun    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Swimming with the Great Western Tide that sweeps towards Tarrod from the far west of the Ocean, the mighty and enigmatic Uuluun sing songs that speak of the unfathomable gods of the deep, and wrestle each other in seabed-shaking contests of strength and martial skill.

Saltscale Lizardfolk    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Something flashes beneath the waves, a hint of green scales surfaces. A rainbow colored crest breaks the waters surface followed by a huge beast.

Humanoids: Pelamids    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Perhaps one of the oldest of the humanoid races, the Pelamids are a sort of missing link between terrestrial humans and aquatic merfolk.

Water Dragon    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

The roar of the dragon echoed through the cave, causing the knights to stumble back in fear. “Don’t worry,” said the mage who was with them. “It’s a water dragon, and from the state of the river outside, it is in poor health. It’s just trying to scare us.”

Aegir    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

From afar I hailed the large man in the dialect of the keirn, thinking him to be friendly. To my surprize, the closer I walked to his large boat, the alrger he became, until he towered over my small frame. His frightning size and pose did little to hide his friendly face and then I knew, that I had found the Aegir.

Bahara'hara'raha    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Swarming, never-ending, sea of teeth, muscle, and scales. They are all pervasive, all consuming, and they will destroy you. Devouring body and soul. They are hatred and fear incarnate, a punishment from the foul and incomprehensible gods.

Trudool    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Suffused with a love for probing every inch of the darkest and most unexplored depths of the ocean,this adventurous octopus like being possesses a dashing courage most odd for one of his race.

Not very surprising perhaps,when you consider the fact that this young explorer is insane.

       By: ephemeralstability

Swordbiters are parasites. They are long, thin and silver, and digest metal, somewhat like rust monsters, but smaller and more insidious. They resemble stick insects, but when they cling to metal they are very well camouflaged, and one can be biting your sword for a week before you notice it. They cannot be removed by hand, as they are very strong, but if the blade is inserted into fire they will leap off to escape the flames. Sometimes, old treasure hoards are infested with them, and the first glimpse you get of the "glittering" weapons is a pile of rusted swords encrusted with these thin silvery insects.
