Fauna of the Desert Wastelands

By:

The Nightmare War did more than end the Old Empire, it turned a massive swath of once fertile land into the unimaginably hostile Wastelands, and populated it with beasts, horrors, and monsters.

Anjet of Cenn Caerwaith

Full Description
The Wastelands are composed of three general regions, one frozen, one desert, and one pestilential forest. These three regions have shifting borders, and what is tainted forest one year can be frost blasted stumps the next, and in a decade lost beneath churning desert sand. The beasts of the Desert region are well known for their large size, ferocity, and ability to seemingly ignore the more aggregious of wounds and recover from what would otherwise be mortal injury.

Additional Information
The Beasts, horrors and monsters of the Desert Wastelands share several common properties:

Immunity to Desert Conditions
In a place of heat, minimal water, and little food, the creatures of the desert are well adapted to their tainted and often poisonous enviroment.

Thaumavoric Metabolism
The beasts of the desert are larger than the enviroment should be able to support in terms of caloric and water intake. The animals, bathed in raw essence for scores of generations have since adapted to feed on unrefined and commonly tainted magic to survive. They grow quickly, have uncommon abilities, and if removed from the font of warped essence that is the Wastelands, the creatures suffer from debilitating wasting. This has long kept the beasts of the wastes from venturing beyond the shifting borders of the Wastelands, and prevented them from overrunning and destroying the natural flora and fauna.

Stone peckers, foul-tempered beasts, better suited for cooking and mattresses than being allowed to breed

Half salad, half meat, I dont know what to make of these things, but without them our expedition would not have made it past the first oasis

Kisundege Eagle By: Scrasamax ( Lifeforms ) Fauna - Desert

Beware the lords of the sky, in the wastelands even the would-be dragons give them a wide berth

Samaki By: Scrasamax ( Lifeforms ) Fauna - Desert

Cooked or raw, they taste like camel urine. Unfortunately they are full of water and easy to catch. I’m tired of eating these sand-fish

A great collection of beasts gone wild! You gotta have the remains of some magical catastrophe in your world, and then will they come in handy. And there can be more.


(this could fit better into the jungle)
There are surely parasites, very unpleasant, slowly burrowing through your flesh. Luckily, there is a nice creature, avian or other kind, that will gladly remove them from you. Now imagine how comfortable that would be... ouch.

Tambourine

       By: Yokima.van.zephrill

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
