Nerimuvas the Magus Serpent


A great supernatural serpant - Wise yet mercurial

Full Description

The Magus Serpent, a rare magical creature native to the Hanaset forests, appears as a massive hundred-foot long constrictor whose tail splits into three prehensile sub-tails. Her scales are an iridescent green and the eyes a metallic copper.

Additional Information
The Magus Serpent is part of the Hanaset Zodiac, and she is called Nerimuvas by the Hanaset.  Easily more intelligent then humans, she is viewed as an incarnation of wisdom and reflection, as well as the patron of aging and rebirth.  Although wise, she is still perilous to deal with, and her anger at offense is legendary.  The serpent will speak with beings who show sufficient deference, and offerings of live prey such as Ralu will raise the probability of a peaceful encounter. The serpent will provide advice to beings who ask it of her, but it is not advised to question accuracy or clarity for risk of causing offense.  While the advise might seem difficult to follow, it is generally wise and accurate.

She lairs in dark caverns near water - she is an excellent swimmer and preys upon crocodiles from time to time. She avoids Malitazum one-eyed, patron and totem of the Hanaset-who-are-not-Hanaset, as he greatly exceeds her own power.

When she sheds her skin, something which generally happens yearly, some of her power remains in the discarded skin. The Hanaset treat these skins as one of their greatest treasures and it is used to bind their holy books.  Many a Hanaset warrior has spent years seeking out these relics.

She is strong in magic but never aids others with it.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.
