Dunkleoustous

Large and powerful, they are the aquatic equivalent of elephants in a battle situation-very dangerous, but no army can afford not to have large numbers of them.

Maggot

Full Description
The Dunkleoustous is a 30 foot long armoured fish with bony ridges in it's huge jaws that serve as teeth, and a two foot long mouth.The first three feet of it's body are covered in natural armour plating that is almost impossible to penetrate with a weapon. These highly fierce fish are very good at breaking down the morale of an opposing army and are used as the spearhead of a charge. An Eshal sits on a saddle mounted on the head.

Having said this, they are very labour intensive to feed and have to be trained from when they are very small.And there is a danger that they could end up panicking and fleeing through their own lines, in which case they have to be killed with a blade thrust by their driver through an eye to reach the brain.

You know how much I like this fearsome fish. :)

I have a detail fetish and this leaves me hanging. How are they trained? What do they eat? What is lifespan, etc... I don't need these answers in particular, but just a little more than this if you want a 5. But it's a nice to the point post.

A nice fish. Needs more detail though.

I like that using this in game will give the players away to breath life into some old smack talk, 'This Dunkleoustous charge is going to take you boys to SCHOOL'

'Forget your lunch box cause, the Dunkleoustous don't take you to school, they take the school to you.'

It is the kind of fish you want with you if you get in a ROE with somebody,

However, it feels unFINished

There isn't a HOOK in the Dunkleoustous that LURES me in.
