Chinese Mythical Life forms


A collection of Chinese Mythical Lifeforms compiled from online sources

This codex contains a collection of Chinese Mythical Life Forms (Fauna, Flora plus Intelligent Races) compiled by Moonlake from a Wiki page written in Chinese. All entries are translations by Moonlake rather than creative content. As far as the author can tell, the Wiki pages themselves are compiled from a variety of ancient texts detailing folklore, strange life forms, myths etc. This collection is meant as a source of inspiration as well as quick drop-ins into a game if it suits. There will be eventually be around 150+ entries in total.

Life Forms are grouped by the following themes, with each theme being a submission on its own:

-Life forms representing good omens

-Life forms representing bad omens

-Life forms providing varying degrees of danger to adventurers

-Relatively harmless life forms

It is mine too although most others seem to prefer the dangerous ones.

I think there is more to say in the introduction of this codex than what you put here. A little discourse on the nature of the mythology would be welcome.

I agree now that I look back on it. However, I would be hard put to actual write such a discourse as you suggest. Maybe some other time in the future.

Mining in a certain area turns all exposed skin (maybe just parts that are actively disturbing the chemicals that cause the reaction) of the those doing the mining to a dark blue color. Will wear off taking as many years/days spent in the mine. ... meeting a party of blue-skinned humans armed with pick-axes etc. Strange disease? Demon offspring? Curse? If they meet only one ex-worker, they will very carefully listen to any stories he says, no matter if drunken or insane, or just makes up to get a beer.
