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.

On route from Geli to Nekrass the characters meet a peasant boy on the road. He's wandering in the direction from which they've just come. If this seems a little bit incongruous, they may wish to ask him a few questions. He's perfectly willing to talk: he's called Lamish and he's run away because he knows he is the heir to the throne of Geli and his parents didn't believe him. How far is his home? About five weeks walk from here. How much has he eaten? Nothing. Has he drunk? Only from the filthy roadside ditches. In short, it's a wonder he is still alive. And yet he seems perfectly healthy.

Is he a thief, waiting for travellers to trick? Is he lying because there's something more sinister under all of this? Is he telling the truth? And anyway, what should the characters do? Do you take him to Geli? Do you try to find his parents? Or leave him to make his own way?
