The Elgr of Guardwoad Forest

By:

The Hunter, with his bow nocked, moved quietly through the underbrush. Not quietly enough. The Elgr spotted him; he had no idea what he was looking at: It was an eight foot tall Elk standing upright, and not only was it standing… it was… dancing? Quickly twirling with ribbons streaming from its antlers, it was coming closer…

Then is struck him, right through the chest with its massive set of antlers. He was gored in several places with no chance of surviving… "Another fool," thought the Elgr

Full Description
These beings stand a full eight feet tall and have a massive set of antlers upon their elk-like heads. Their bodies are covered in short hair that ranged in color from greyish-white to dark red. They have elongated fingers and hands which are more suited toward wielding a paintbrush or instrument than any weapon.

The Elgr live deep in the Guardwoad Forest where they practice the arts of dancing, painting detailed landscapes and antler jousting.

Additional Information

The Elgr are a secluded race of fey creatures known for protecting the Guardwoad Forest from hunters and other unwanted visitors to the border of the fey-kingdom.

Update: This has been in work and untouched for 2 years. Time to toss it out as a stub and maybe make something featuring it. If you have any idea for expanding what I have, let me know and I'll add you as a collab.

Perhaps expanding the sub to cover a bit about their origins and if they arose through breeding with the fey using or some type of a wild creature they domesticated and changed through magic.

Perhaps giving their paintings some kind of mystical properties could help, and detailing how they fit in with the fey culture as a whole?

Just what I was looking for in an unusual fantasy woodland race. Will find a way to use these, soon.

Two Minerals

       By: Murometz

Yupiorite

Also called "pale-yellow witch" by alchemists, this mineral is known to possess a peculiar attribute. When found, a Yupiorite will appear the palest yellow. Rather than crystalline in structure, Yupiorite occurs in weird, smooth, ovaline shapes, as if already carved by skilled hands to serve as ring or necklace ornaments. Yupiorite somehow detects and reacts to mood. When the wearer of the gem is content, calm, and happy, the stone will remain the palest yellow. As the person gets more excited, angry, or otherwise stimulated, the mineral will darken progressively to a dark corn-yellow in color. Why the gem reacts this way to sentient mood swings, is still debated by gemologists and alchemists alike.

It is said that the Elven Halls of Vala-Aluduwy are resplendent with wall-sized mirrors of pure Yupiorite, showing plainly and ironically, the emotions of everyone present, despite the Elven love of restraint and stoicism.

Aragdulose

"Cave-grass" or "cave-pine" is a deep forest green in color, rare and often mistaken for other minerals, though otherwise mundane. Crystals form into tiny, ultra-thin, needle-like clusters by the hundreds of thousands, creating vast dark green bursts and structures, resembling evergreen conifers, if viewed by any sort of light. Despite its ephemeral shape, Aragdulose is only second to a diamond in hardness.

Dwarves are said to keep these mineral "trees" in their homes, putting them up during festive family holidays, leaving presents beneath them, for kin to open.
