Acehrax raptors

By:

Acehrax raptors, with fifty foot wingspans and powerful talons, these dangerous creatures, are the bane of the Snake Riders.

Full Description
These terrible things have resemble a cross between an eagle and a dragon, having the white head and talons of a bird of prey but the leathery wings and tail of a dragon. With a wingspan streching 50 feet across,these birds are reknown among the Snake Riders for being the mortal enemy of the beloved Serpents.

Regarded as monsters worth collecting as trophies,they have been the target of many a party of Snake Rider warriors that go off in search of the rocky islands they are said to nest in. Armed with poisoned arrows and spears,the hunters flush the beast out of its lair by building a fire at the entrance. Then, when the beast storms out screaming, they fall upon it with their weapons. This is extremely dangerous, for even when disorientated,the raptor can still be lethal.

The chief of the Ogax tribe who once went on such a hunt,recollects seeing a raptor slay a Serpent with its talons and then rip apart five men with its beak before it was finally brought down.

Additional Information
Most raptors are very solitary and live alone,coming together only to mate. The exceptions to this are females guarding their eggs or fledglings unable to fend for themsleves.

A nifty creature with just enough detail to serve as springboard.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.
