Mesulu monkey


A tool-using monkey of great dexterity.

Full Description

The mesulu monkeys are physically very similar to our Lemurs, though they lack the prehensile tails.  Their fur is generally dark brown and they occasionally have streaks of green deliberately added by the mesulu themselves.

Additional Information

These monkeys are excellent tool users and learn easily by mimicry. Lacking a usable language, they can only transfer this knowledge amongst their troop through mimicry.  They do not construct tools themselves, either using natural tools or stealing them from other races. They are notorious for their thieving abilities and will raid camps for both tools, cloth and food.

Unless cornered they never fight, seeking instead to flee into the forests. They never willing move more then a few feet from a treeline and so camps placed in the center of large clearing are safe from their depredations.

As Companions or Familiars

These monkeys, if carefully tamed, can be very useful assistants.  Their tool-using prowess and above average intelligance allows them to perform tasks as complex as preparing and serving tea.  They have very strong tendancies towards kleptomania and this could be a good or bad thing depending on the individual.

They are also facinated by magic or other oddities - magnets, static charges and the like.

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
