The Elgr of Guardwoad Forest    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)

The Hunter, with his bow nocked, moved quietly through the underbrush. Not quietly enough.

Quickly twirling with ribbons streaming from its antlers, it was coming closer…

A common mistake when writing adventures set in deserts is to assume that the climate is too ferociously hot to wear armor. Historically, most battles in deserts involved troops dressed in protective armor. Although they would have been miserable during the hottest part of the day or the hottest part of the year, desert weather isn't intolerably hot 24/7.
