Their chattering was heard for miles. It was a piercing metallic scream; when you heard it you felt your skin was shrinking and ears bleeding. Today they are known only as the small metal skeletons adorning pubs and curio cabinets. The Hemangini flying squirrels once roamed these mountains; sharpening their alloyed teeth on whatever metal or ore they could find. Their favorite dietary supplement was worked metal. If left alone a single squirrel would consume an entire coin purse, ventilate someone’s armor or circumcise his sword. The dwarves labeled them an abomination and a holy war was declared.
