Killikra

By:

If you can see the bones, you're already dead.

Within the deepest jungles of Garo Tai dwell many strange, exotic creatures. Some are known for their bright coloration, delicious meat, or their vicious demeanor. This creature is in the last category.

A Killikra is a strange creature, and difficult to classify. Its closest relatives are Reptilian, but this monstrosity seems far removed from any such animal. It is eight feet tall, with four arms and two legs, normally standing in a manner similar to an ape. One pair of arms is very large, used for locomotion and combat, while its smaller, inner arms are used for holding food and fine manipulation. It possesses a carapace that encompasses most of its body, shielding itself from blows that would kill most other animals. It has four jaws, two vertical, resembling a normal mouth, and two horizontal, almost serving as cheeks. Perhaps its most notable feature, it completely lacks eyes, instead relying upon two forms of Echolocation. The first is used for running and moving quickly through the jungle, sounding like a reverberating whooping that carries for quite some distance. Te other is a barely audible clicking, produced by moving its horizontal jaws back and forth in rapid succession. This is used for hunting, stalking prey, and has the added benefit of causing disorientation in most creatures' inner ear, leaving them dizzy and unbalanced.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
