North east of the Green Chalice, lies a forest wholly unlike anything seen in the old world. This forest is completely and utterly devoid of trees. In their stead grows an enormous mass of thickets, brambles and gigantic nettles. It is here, in the Great Tangle, that the Loxosceps dwell. An adult stands at the menacing height of four foot six, maximum. Their fangs are an imposing centimeter in length, and their eight, beady eyes glow with the fires of a peaceful, slow, curiosity.

The Loxosceps are peaceful, and their lives revolve around their stomachs and their love of music. Each Loxoscep is fostered into a particular school of music at their coming of age ceremony, roughly 7 years after birth. Until then, they study in a wide range of musical styles, all revolving around the fiddle, or occasionally, simple woodwind instruments. Their stomachs come into play both in their refusal to eat anything but live meat, and the internal production of “Loxoscep pearls” hard, shiny, red stones anywhere from a centimeter to an inch in diameter. These pearls aid in the digestion of their meals, and, once expelled, are used by the Loxosceps to produce their famous jams, as well as Saps and Blackjacks.

Loxosceps are not particularly fond of clothing, they are, however, obsessed with hats. In fact, it is not uncommon for a Loxoscep that has left Great Tangle to wear entire stacks of hats, each hat more gaudy than the last. Loxosceps are also very proficient at jumping, however, a fact that often leads to the headgear of an escaping Loxoscep to litter the ground it leaps over. In recent years, younger Loxosceps have developed a taste for scarfs, often complicating their proficiency with woodwinds.

When running a new party, get around the question of plot density by having the first discovery to be a deck of fate, or whatever you call it. If you use a real deck, you should definitely stack it to have the desired outcome, which is to curse the party to attract weird things to happen and involve them. This should not be told to the players at the time, so that they won't just up and try to get themselves 'decursed'. Though quite why they would want to is beyond me.
