Pariah replied: 15 - Cow Patties
Why? Because they're cheap and have some decent uses

Fuel: You don't have to go out hunting for as much firewood when you camp. They're light and can be stuffed into empty spaces in you bag.

Smoke Producer: Use in combination with other smokey materials, at the mouth of a cave, to smoke out the crazy raiders/evil orcs.

Not that good as pillows, they get to sticky from your sweat during a hot night. Use your gear bag instead. Turn the softest side to face you. Go to Comment

Just remember that these are in no way secure. All it takes with some zip ties is either 15 minutes of jiggling these about, or a safety pin, and your prisoner is free. Go to Comment

Used on door hinges to reduce noise, this stuff can help loosen stuck bolt (on occasion), treat 1st degree burns (I'm truthfully not lying), it dissolves cocaine, and can double as a sort of pepper spray. - The cocaine story is #6 Go to Comment

Shinedown being complete drivel that sold out to a mass movement of 'specialness' aside, me mishearing those lines while I was half asleep helped break a month's worth of writer's block, so I decided that it would be only fitting to put the lyrics in.

*Refrains from saying GM's discresion* I don't know much about my own creation CP, but I'll try to fix your problem. This thing is just senseless rage and sadism personified. It's equiped with an animalistic cunning and a need to torture anything that moves. That cover your question? Go to Comment

Wandering beneath the trees of Bisaya there are a great many demons, things so horrid that men can barely stand to look upon them, but few can claim to have killed so many, or so thoroughly as the Tzaraath. It is a predator that knows no match, hunting alone through forests that have known an unending night for generations.

It stood at least 3 men tall, this thing, and it reeked of a week-old battlefield, that horrid mixture of burnt and rotten flesh, offal, and hatred. That's all I noticed before it set into us, at which point those of us that weren't running set too it with our axes and spears, only to find that its flesh, where it wasn't half rotted, was as hard as stone. It lashed out about itself, with teeth and claws and spikes that protruded from it's sides and back, like some deranged bear. I was lucky and got hit with the back of one of it's hands, and was flung at least 20 paces. That's all that I remember, sir.
Transcript from one of the survivors of the 31st Imperial Division sent to investigate the interior of Bisaya

The island has a peculiarity about it that leads many men to believe that the island itself is alive, and that it views them as a disease upon their surface. Whether or not this is true, the Tzaraath would seem to support this view. It is one of those things that, without having any purpose to exist, and no means to have even come into existence, do.

It hunts beneath the trees, with an uncanny intelligence born as much from years of being hunted as from being the hunter. During the day it sleeps, hanging from the tree branches like a sloth, wakened only by excessive noise, and at night it wakes to hunt the woods. It hunts hunters, the massive cannibal apes and the large cats and men have all fallen prey to its depredations. Go to Comment

Jungle Lynx One of the smaller hunters on an island that is known for its many ways to die, the Jungle Lynx is none the less one of the most effective killers of men. This isn't because of some supernatural strength, or uncanny intelligence, but because of its pack-nature and their hit and run tactics. The lynx is small, usually only a foot and a half long without its tail, and dun colored with black stripes going vertically through its body. And an individual lynx is rather weak, unable to defend itself besides by running away. In spite of this, they are still to be feared. They'll often attack in groups of 7 to 12, jumping out of the trees and slashing at their victim's face and throat, only to jump off again as its prey begins to defend itself.  They've been known to display a malign intelligence, and will readily attack any part of their victim that it leaves open, if only for an instant.  One of their favored tactics is to swing at the eyes of their prey, only to attack its stomach, or slash at the stomach only to quickly hamstring their victim.  Packs of the Jungle Lynx are able to take down animals 5 or 10 times their size, and a solitary human has almost no chance of survival against a determined pack of them.

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
