Dunkleoustous

By:

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.

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.

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.

Nomadic Library

       By: Murometz

Saril had a dream. To open a library in the windswept wastes of Naarish, so that the people of the many villages and towns spread over the hundreds of leagues of desert could discover the joys of his books. For a whole year he kept his library open, but alas, almost no one came.

That is when Saril came up with his new idea. If people didn't travel to read his books, he would travel to them! Saril closed his library, hired a team of twelve camels, loaded up the beasts with all of his books and proceeded to invent the first nomadic library.

Now children and adults alike, looked forward to hearing the bells of Saril's camels as he entered their villages, as he tirelessly traversed the deserts in a long circuitous route, visiting every village and town he came across, in turn. It came to pas that Saril's traveling library came to some fame, and that is how the folk of Naarish became literate.

A word of warning though. Naarish has only six thousand volumes. He deals with those that lose or steal his tomes quite "harshly", by bypassing the town or village which was responsible for losing one of his books for that calendar year.
