Let's have a thread for mildly magical creatures. Not ones that are genuinely terrifying, more like pests which happen to have magical abilities. It's like the creature equivalent of the "mildly magical items" threads. So, let's get this thing rolling.>Eyeglass RollerA creature that much resembles a Pangolin, it is a mammal the size of a raccoon that feeds mostly off shrubbery and small mammals like mice. It is noted, however, for its translucent glass scales that coat its back and tail, where it's name is derived. The quality and color of these scales varies on the sand present in the region, for when a scale falls off from damage or disease, the Roller eats sand to regenerate its defenses. This process is still physiologically unexplainable. They are hunted for their scales.
>>56431330>Jabber>A bear like creature, Jabbers moslty consume meat and small amounts of rocks to aid digestion, they are well known for their ability to mimic voices nearly perfectly, the only way to know it's a Jabber you're talking to is of it speaks quickly and about random topics.Is that good?
>>56431422I like that alot, and I think it'd work pretty well in a campaign.
>>56431460Lil mushroom people are always in my fantasy settings2cute4me
>>56431460Alright cool, I'll make a couple more to help out the thread.>Magi-Gators>Alligators whose ancestors somehow acquired magical skill have the chance to become Magi-Gators. While looks vary widely, the most common Magi-Gator has three eyes and the ability to track down other magical beings.>Necro Wasps>A magical breed of wasps that nest in the corpses that create wisps and other similar undead beings. They will try to make the hive larger by killing travelers and having the corpse hauled close to another nest.
The creature resembles a small, black cockroach, and is remarkable for the aura it visibly projects, causing it to appear like a "fuzzy" black spot from a distance.The aura is visible through physical objects, including anything from eyelids to iron fortifications, for some distance. Specimens safe underground tend to cause frustration for predatory birds and other animals, who strike at the aura fruitlessly.They are considered pest animals when they swarm, because of their propensity to seek heat and restless sleepers. Though their diet consists of a variety of moulds and thus plagues are relatively harmless, the projection of their auras en masse is visually repellent, especially when trying to sleep.
>>56431330>Freezefly>While at first glance appearing to be a perfectly normal fly - albeit with a strange icy-blue color - the Freezefly has quite a nasty surprise. When a Freezefly is squished, its body lets out a small blast of frost - a nasty surprise for anyone that gets close. While normally not usually more than an annoyance or nasty surprise for the general populace, their real menace shows in their attraction to heat - they can often be found in equatorial zones, and their icy blasts often are the cause of doused fires and property damage.
>Cave sunsRather than becoming dull and blind in the darkness of the undergournd, these creatures' progenitor found its way to the well of the sun and drank full, developing a blinding bioluminesence. Their skin, their fur, their teeth, every aspect of their body shines with such brilliance as to cause permanent damage if stared at for too long, illuminating the cavernous passageways and scaring off potential predators. Small mammals that they are, they subsist off stagnet pools and the fungus that clings to the craggy walls. Adventurers will often delve deep below in search of one of these creatures, hoping to entrap it and butcher, as it takes decades for the light to drain from the creature's flesh. Paws or tails or eyes get put in obfuscated jars and used as a non-depleting lantern.
>>56431554Fungi are the only true beings that can understand man's pain
>>56433961Anyone else remember the mushroom men games? Probably a /vg/ topic, but this reminds me of it.
The Tenasi Dying Goat. >A breed of small goats that traditionally lived wild in the cedar-covered mountains of Tenasi. To avoid their main predators (large eagles that circle open glades in the woods) they developed an illusory trick. When a shadow falls upon them suddenly, the goats go stiff-legged and collapse, and their body appears to quickly rot away until only bleached bone and patches of hair remain. The illusion lasts only a few seconds, which hopefully gives the goat enough time to regain it's feet and sprint into the shelter of the trees.>Some farmers maintain their own herds of Tenasi Goat, as they swear that the cashmere produced is finer and softer than any other breed. Most prefer to stick with traditional goats, as even the temporary smell of decay gets tiresome after the ninth time that day.
>Blood SapperDespite the name, the creature is benign in all sense. The blood of heroes passed was cursed with undeath once parted from the body, but as the centuries went by, the mystical tampering devorced the blood genetically from the owner as it crawls on the dungeon floors. It has developed enough to have a paper thin skin the shape of a ball, rolling around aimlessly in the dark and dangerous places of this world. It subsists of the blood of others, essentially keeping the crypt clean
The Compass Tortoisea small tortoise with a pattern on it's shell that shifts to always form an arrow that is pointing towards magnetic north. No one knows why it has this feature, as the Tortoise do not seem to follow the compass or need it.
Hodgeman's Tiger ('The Mother's Terror')>This rare breed of jungle cat was only positively identified by paranaturalists in the last century, along native folklore referenced it frequently. It possesses a preternatural ability to detect positive emotions across distances - the stronger the emotion and the more people sharing it, the greater the range, up to perhaps forty miles. It uses this ability to locate large groups of prey and attack while they are distracted. Although they can eat animals, they prefer humans, possibly due to the stronger and more complex emotions. During festivals and other outdoor events in local villages, there are guards - usually older men and women - who stay outside the area and keep a watch for these man-eaters.
>>56431330>Drakes>A small, wingless but still dragonlike lizard about the size of a large housecat.>Can shoot smoke out of its mouth, uses this to smoke out burrowing prey like rodents, snakes, and smaller lizards.
>>56436147People complain about pitching times, but I think this is what the MLB has been missing
>>56431330My setting's capital has Sea Griffins. They're a griffin creature but if it was between a seagull and a cat. Made by a mad wizard and got out of control; they've overbred the other pests like rats, pigeons, stray cats, etc because they're just an all-around better predator/scavenger than the rest.They're not particularly dangerous because they're still about the size of a housecat; it's just fuckn annoying going down to the docks where the you have flocks of seagulls ballsy enough to sneak in and steal your catch while screaming at you.
>Boon Ape>A monkey which has evolved alongside all animals across the world in a similar way to the way dogs evolved alongside men.>Still valuing independence, they are extremely nimble and evasive creatures, difficult to eat for most predators.>It is the natural instinct of all living things to nurture these creatures, giving them gifts of food, sharing shelter, and showing them water.>It is also the natural instinct of the boon ape to do favors for creatures who aid them.
>>56433961>>56433942>>56431460Pretty funny when you remember mushrooms are just fungus dicks
>>56437114hahaha penises, what a classic
>Stealth FoxSlightly bigger than but otherwise indistinguishable from an ordinary woodland fox, the stealth fox has the ability to turn itself invisible, which it uses both to hunt prey and evade predators.
>WalkyweedA curious creature, the walkyweed is known to adventurers who camp near them, and hide as an ordinary plant should anyone approach it.
>>56437617>Stealth SnakeA large snake with unsual intelligance, known for primitive tool use such as sticks or rocks, and abnormal problem solving abilities. However, the trait that sets it apart from the rest of the creatures you may find in the wilds is its compulsory need to infiltrate any lair, city, dungeon, den, ect. Whether the result of an ancient curse or some faulty deductive reasoning, they will always try to find a way to sneak into places it isnt allowed. Often carried around by sneaktheives at their wit's end, who let them loose to find a way to penetrate their mark.
>>56431330>jellywispA breed of jellyfish which inhabit bogs, marshes, wetlands, etc. They're no larger than the average human palm and can crawl short distances on land, similar to octopi. A chemical reaction starts up in their bodies after death which causes them to glow yellow-green. Once a year, before the first winter snows, they gather in huge spawning pools. They die after breeding; before expiry, they wander the swamps, depositing larvae in underwater sediments and soft, damp earth. The late autumn marshes glow bright with dead jellies. In the spring, the larvae emerge from stasis, returning to the water.
>WoodcrafterA native of the western woods, it's notable for it's bright red plumage and the intricacy with which it carves it's homes. Using it's iron-hard beak, it produces perfect angles in bizarre patterns as it makes nests and carves up trees to get at the grubs within.
>>56431330>UnbarbersOriginally created by a wizard fond of practical jokes these extra hairy caterpillars have since escaped and bred in the wild.While harmless they have the rather annoying behavior of seeking out sleeping humans and attaching themselves to their faces in ways that resemble natural facial hair (usually mustaches or eyebrows). Once attached a mild magical suggestion leaves the individual they are attached to with the belief that the caterpillars are in fact their natural facial hair.
>RakkitsAn undead rabbit. Rakkits are not dangerous, as they are either incapable or unwilling to hurt anything. They are typically found burrowing an endless series of tunnels, and tend not to surface, even for food. However, many people still dislike them due to their undead nature, and are considered a pest.
>CuddlecubA popular folktale has the progenitor of this enormous breed created by a lonely wizard in the far north, who wanted companionship through his long years of study. Many love their affectionate nature and supernatural ability to calm and console. However, many herdsmen are very wary of them - it's easy for a lost lamb to be scooped up by a Cuddlecub, magically contented, and never seen again.
>>56436403That's pretty neat, I'm gonna use it at some point. Do they get on ships and make their way to other ports?
>>56431330Glyphspinners. Tiny spiders who weave their webs into glyphs to trap their prey. Each variety weaves only a single glyph, which, while lethal to flies, is merely inconvenient and strange to passing humanoids.Children sometimes play pranks on one another by luring friends into a web, or walking into the glyph trap themselves to experience its unusual effect.
>nicegi>a variety of sentient mushroom capable of telepathic communication>its spores are a little too dense to fly freely on anything but the windiest days, so instead they rely on sentient creatures>they do this by sexually harrassing passersby until physically attacked, scattering spores everywhere
>>56437968they've only got one eye and like to nest in cardboard boxes right?
>>56436195>ShamdrakeA relatively rare offshoot of the common drake (>>56436195), notable for it's large size and easygoing temperament. While usually quite lazy, they can be trained if reared from the egg, and are used by herdsmen in the Negasi Hills as living scarecrows - shamdrakes are not excellent guard animals, but their presence is enough to ward off most predators.
>>56431330>Lit-miteSimilar in stature to other breeds of small bug which eat paper, it consumes the written word. This is not limited to books, and if left to run amok for too long, even the venerable edda carved into the dwarven halls can be ruined. If squished between blank pages of a book, their words consumed pepper the pages, but not necessarily in coherent fashion. Their ichor makes a potent acidic ink which other lit-mites do not consume, and cannot be erased by magical means. Occasionally, non-sapient critters which eat lit-mites gain some intelligence. This is most often the case with cats, notorious in dwarf homes as pest-control.
>>56440712they have to earn their one eye, guy.
>>56441543This one was nice, but the cat line pushed it over for me. Definitely going to use that in a game.
>>56434092Mushroom men would have been completely forgettable if it wasnt for the mushrooms, my man
>>56431330>KeetBasically tiny golems. Byproducts of alchemical spills, accidents, or waste that mix with small bits of trash, dirt, fingernails, hair, mouse droppings, etc. under the floorboards or furniture. They don't know much but are curious buggers who love to hoard shiny things. Generally non-violent by nature but bothersome when they take your keys.Large infestations originate from messy laboratories and spread into the surrounding neighborhood. The worse cases being where Keet have learned to make other keet from trash and leftovers from unwashed alchemical vials or cauldrons. Pretty much only countred by necromancy or fire since they cant really be stomped to death.
>>56431330A couple I've got in my setting>Black LionOnce called Sun Lions (having been created by the Sun Goddess), Black Lions were created when a devil tainted their being out of spite. A solid black pelt with piercing yellow eyes, Black Lions are known for their unusual coloration and the difficulty it takes to kill one; their muscles have a curious property where, if they can see a hit coming, they reflexively harden like stone, making it nigh impossible to wound one face to face. Many nobles and respected warlords wear the hides of Black Lions upon their back as symbols of their strength and bravery.>Rock Adder (looking for a better name for this one, actually)The jungle houses many horrific and dangerous creatures; the Rock Adder is one such creature. The Rock Adder has the appearance of a common python, growing to an average length of 6 feet. The distinction between them is hard to miss; the Rock Adder has a long, bony blade running the length of its spine, which has the appearance of a flint-knapped stone blade. While the blade is a single piece of very hard bone, it curiously flexes with the snake's body while retaining its strength. When a Rock Adder attacks, it first wraps around the victim or prey and constricts it, then begins viciously rolling its body, flaying the skin and muscle from the prey. Its jaw, unlike many snakes, cannot unhinge, hence the need to flay its prey into small, mouth-sized morsels. They are typically left to their own devices, though their blades are sometimes used in dueling among jungle tribes.
>>56443115Flayer BoasSharpspine PythonFlintbacksRazorcoilsSnickersnack SnakesGreg (just one of them though)Adders are venomous, you should pick a snake that doesn't typically have venom for the name if it kills via other methods
>>56443553>Flintbacksby far the best
>>56442514The cat bit was a joke about Dwarf Fortress. I don't even like cats, really. I just thought it would be funny to have their magical traits influence intelligence in pets that way. I invite you to ignore that bit if you feel it is too far. I'm glad you liked the rest, though!
>>56443885You misread me. The rest was fine, but I really liked the cat bit. That was what convinced me it was worth using.
Blink Frogs, sometimes when they hop they phase out of reality and reappear 3-5m away.
>>56443975Oh! Okay, cool. Was a touch ambiguous, but I see, now. Anyway, glad you liked it. This is a cool thread.
>>56437968Snek, try to remember the bassssssicssss of ccccccccqccccccc
>>56440619>Fungi that is attracted to feminists who hate symbols of masculinityKek
>WoolvesWolves that can magically transform themselves into sheep. While moonlight can reveal their true forms, their eyes always have a canine appearance.Rarely, a woolf will sire a child with a ewe while in sheep form. The offspring is perfectly identical to a normal sheep until exactly 177 days after its birth, when it suddenly transforms into a dire woolf
>>56434092Fucking loved it, never did beat the DS version though
>>56443553These are all great. Think I'm gonna go with Flintbacks. Thanks man!
>>56444735Please name at least one of them Greg. For me. You don't even need to bring it up in game.
Manna WevilsThe same size and apperance as their mundane brethrin these tiny beetles live off residual magic and are usually seen as an indication of poor magical hygene.Wile not actually dangerous or harmful, in large enough numbers they can begin to drain the magic from an area, resulting in a small reduction in the casting power of resident mages, and can cause difficulty in learning or preparing spells.
>BloatfishA common but valuable fish found across The Blue, it contains large stores of fresh water within a special bladder which can be harvested by cutting open the fish. Obviously this kills the fish, but serves as an excellent supply of emergency potable water.>Iegen TurtleStrange indents in their shell allow them to collect soil atop them, both for camouflage and to support various symbiotic plantlife. Pet owners experiment with various moss and bonsai trees to craft moving gardens.The shells provide unique mineral nutrition to any feeding plants, allowing some finer control when raising magical plantlife. Care must be taken not to overtax the turtle, lest it become enraged or empowered by the plants.>MycocreteThere is a special mushroom that only grows at freezing temperature. When ground to a powder, dissolved in water with some sawdust, and frozen, the ice exhibits unusual properties. The ice is stronger than any simple brick and mortar, and can last half a summer before showing any signs of weakness or melt.In time, the mushroom seems to grow into the ice, further reinforcing it. Light and heat stops this growth, but much is needed to truly weaken the cement.Mycocrete is primarily produced near, but not at, the polar regions.What few lands there are are dug into caves and seeded with fresh samples. They are shipped in powder form, and serve as major sources of funds for inhabitants of the Far North or South.
>>56448637>Will StoneA parasitic mollusk with a translucent shell. Often mistaken for a slime due to the shell's roundness and flat colors.In exchange for subjecting the victim to an addictive, dreamlike high, the Will Stone imposes a significant nutritional and mental strain. Victims begin craving mushrooms and lichen, gnawing on cave rocks as the Will Stone harvests their minds for memories.Most curious is that with proper meditation and perhaps with the aid of special diets, one can view previous memories stored within the Will Stone. They will often come as hallucinations, and risk damaging the user's sense of reality, but few other methods exist for leaving such clear and personal memories for future generations.
>>56431330>Blinkmites>Often confused for ordinary termites blinkmites are significantly harder to get rid of and are far more ravenous. They are the bane of fishing villages and navies everywhere. Unlike normal termites that must migrate to new food blinkmites have the ability to teleport into new sources of wood when they run low on their current supply. Fishermen must be constantly vigilant or risk finding out their ships are infested far to late.
>>56436195>Beer Drake>A small winged flying lizard that grows up to about two feet at most. It gets its name from its diet which consists of small insects, mice, fruits and hops, but it has a tendency to find its ways to taverns where they are appreciated for clearing out vermin and can survive off of common cheap beer alone if need be.>They are social creatures that do not fear larger creatures, often studying them and showing signs of intelligence enough to form opinions about who they trust or do not trust. Many of them cannot speak though, but can express themselves through bodily language.>They are seen as a symbol of good luck if one happens to follow you out of a tavern, and many adventuring parties go out of their way to entice one into going with them on their adventures to ensure that everything goes well.>secretly, beer drakes go with parties of adventures to collect small coins and unwanted trinkets to build a secret hoard of treasure, usually found in the walls and under the floorboards of the taverns they dwell in.
>>56431330Tribbles."Magic" ability?>Soft>Multiply like crazyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4wM5KvUGEc
>>56450595I really like this one.
>>56431330>Dungeoneering MimicA smaller offshoot of mimic, these friendly little creatures are often sought by adventurers for their useful ability to change into a variety of tools and objects. They require no sustinence and feed off of curiousity, trying out new forms and sightseeing on adventures with parties. Unlike regular mimics, these creatures have the uncanny ability to alter their personal properties in addition to their look and shape. Some examples are when transforming into pots and pans the mimic feels and functions nearly identically to metal, and gains heat resistance. While most dungeon mimics can only imitate small and simple things, more well-trained and seasoned mimics can become functional living arms and armor, transforming into shields and swords, with the most exceptional (and rare) being able to expend a great deal of energy to imitate magical effects such as casting light or delivering a shock on a strike. These more powerful abilities take a great toll on the mimic and can cause a lot of physical stress, so they usually tend to avoid doing that unless it's absolutely necessary.A dungeoneering mimic enjoys it when it can return to a simple grey oozelike substance and have its owner run his or her fingers through it.
>>56448637>MycocreteAlso a great way to make fantasy refrigerators.
>Blue Campfire LizardThis common lizard typically lives in shade, preferring areas of warmth and dampness. As a result, you're more likely to find them living near populated areas, around the bases and cellars of homes.Reaching a length of three inches at most under normal circumstances, these bluish pale flaked lizards are most easily identified at night from their bio luminescent underbellies that can emit a soft pale blue light and a mild warmth. This, combined with a sweet aroma they can produce through glands along their backsides, attracts their prey of small insects.Though not dangerous, they are often seen as pests because they will sometimes make their way into homes where they will settle somewhere out of the way, enjoying the warmth of the interior of a house, sometimes startling the residents within at night when they begin to glow and move around. The real danger comes when several of them move in, because of a defensive property they have.Children sometimes catch them and hold them in their palms, letting them pulse with warmth for a while before the lizard leaps or scurries away when the lizard loses interest or feels intimidated.Though mainly docile, these lizards get part of their name from their last-resort defense mechanism of being able to spit a small tuft of flame. The flame can cause small burns, but is usually non-life threatening. If they get into your home though, they can become a hazard.
>>56448637>>56448656I really like these. These are pretty damn good.
>Rolling rocksthey look like normal pebbles and stones, until you see them rolling up the side of a hill. They will often move around in small groups, like a tiny rocksfall. They don't react to people at all, and its wise to steer clear of their paths or likely you will suffer some nasty bruises. A strange thing is that they get larger as they age, suggesting that they somehow gather up rock in a sort of reverse erosion. Once they get to a certain size - usually a few feet across- they slow down and eventually stop moving, turning into a normal rock again. it is thought that they may have some relation to stone golems.
Friendly bump for a good thread.
>>56444621I dont understand, but i think i love it
>>56435694Imagine going into a crypt/dungeon that as far as you know has been abandoned for a while. Only to find its squeaky clean. Most players would jump to the someone lives here I would think. But really you just got blood balls
>boobtreeA tree that bears fruit once a year, the pear shaped fruit look and feel identical to a boob, with a nipple on the side. The fruit most often grow in pairs, although singles and triples are also quite common. When at the height of ripeness, the fruit look swollen and engorged, the nipple tantalizingly erect. The delicious milk of the fruit, a sweet creamy substance similar to coconut milk but richer, can easily be squeezed out through the nipple or sucked out directly, after which the fruit will deflate and shrink a bit. If left attached to the tree, the fruits will refill and become engorged again after 24 - 48 hours. A single tree can yield many liters of juice per milking, and this cycle can be repeated 3 - 5 times per season, until the fruit are picked or become overripe and saggy, falling off on their own. Locals have yearly boobtree festivals in the late springtime, seeing who can cultivate the most aesthetically pleasing fruit, or the best tasting fruit / milk.
>>56452891Sounds like the result of a horny wizard who was a tiddy lover and a dendrophile.
>>56448637>MycocreteMagic pykrete eh?
>Great Riding BeetleA species of beetle grown to enormous sizes through magical tinkering and breeding.The Great Riding Beetle is large enough to carry four medium sized creatures for ground travel, or a single rider with flight. The beetle is strong enough to carry a decent amount of weight as well, and in some communities they even can be used for farmwork in tilling fields or removing trees.The beetle's primary diet consists of leafy greens, but it can consume fruits and nuts as well. They can eat meat, but they generally do not do this unless there is nothing else available. They require a lot of food, and owning one is expensive.The beetles have a very hard exterior of various colors and horn styles, but the most common and popular variety is the black sheen dragon horn, which features a prominent crescent horn on the front. Their carapaces are shiny and sometimes sought after for the creation of a heavy but very durable armor.They tend to show enough intelligence to be similar to a work animal, but in very rare cases people have formed bonds with these creatures, them showing an interest and response to certain individuals whom they've become familiar and friendly towards.Great Riding Beetles in the wild are passive, they typically keep to themselves unless they are provoked. They give off a warning by opening their elytra and rapidly flapping their wings, creating a strong breeze. If threatened, they can attack with a chemical that causes minor burns and irritation, in addition to their natural mandibles being used in close combat.Great Riding Beetles are especially fond of sweet beverages, their preference seems not towards flavors, but rather color, in this case they typically prefer to drink blue sweet smelling liquids when presented.
>cumpcampAn edible small pink mushroom anywhere from 2 - 6 inches long with an uncanny resemblance to the human penis. While usually soft and encased within its universal veil, when stimulated it will become hard and grow several inches, protruding out from the fleshy veil. If continuously stimulated it will eventually shoot out its spores, a white sticky substance, from the 'urethra' in the middle of its cap. The spore liquid is said to have a calming & soothing effect, as well as other medicinal properties. The spores pass through the digestive tract unharmed, and so are spread around if swallowed.While considered an embarrassment to have in the front yard, they can sometimes be found in the backyards of lonely house wives, or near small streams in the woods where restless girls will seek them out. Legend has it that if one was to somehow become impregnated by one of these shrooms, they will give birth to a mushroom fairy.
>Bellowing Anger DrakeA strange small lizard that howls with fury.These lizards are flightless and grow up to three feet in length. They typically are black or brown, sometimes green. They have many small soft horns along their body and tail.The drake is primarily a carnivore, but will consume fruits when necessary. It prefers to drink cool or cold water in the shade, presumably to calm down. The drake gets its name from a strange phenomenon where its body begins to get warm and it lets out a very loud screech or roar of anger. While it sounds mad, these creatures do this under any emotional state. Nobody knows why they do this, but it's been noted that this typically tends to occur more often on colder, cloudless nights.These drakes typically avoid people and are usually solitary until they require to mate, but domesticated rage drakes can be very friendly and affectionate with their owners, often curling up in their laps or laying on top of them while they sleep. They do not change their roaring behavior though, and seem to enjoy it and encourage their owners to join in with them howling.It's suspected that these lizards are the result of some kind of magical mischief from a wizard.
>Gold Nose "Lucky" RatAn invasive and unusual species of rat that can abuse uncanny luck to survive.These rats are normal sized and are typically brown with white trim and underbelly fur. They have golden colored noses and tails.They exhibit an unusual property when threatened, using an extraordinary ability to manipulate luck to avoid taking damage. While this luck can save them from being struck, it does not seem to work all the time, especially when under constant assault.These rodents are sought after by gamblers who believe that they can impart their luck onto themselves. Gambling establishments have banned these creatures from being brought anywhere close to their places of business, and take great efforts to exterminate the species.These rodents appear randomly in normal rodent populations, only one percent of the time.
>Incorrect AdderA mildly poisonous snake found in urban areas. The product of a wizard who attempted tax evasion, the poison of these snakes makes a victim incapable of performing mathematical calculations for a brief period of time. More severe cases can cause an inability to judge time or distance precisely until the poison wears off.
>bangirdThe bangird is a type of large insect that externally resembles a small bird until you get close enough to see that this is actually due to mock-colorations. There are a number of varieties that have evolved to mimic the local birdlife of the region. The bangird will primarily eat other smaller insects and dig around in the dirt to consume worms. It tends to pose no serious threat and when harassed will fly away while emitting a noxious stench.The bangird has a unique property in that when their external carapace is penetrated on the underside of the abdomen, they emit begin to fizz for five seconds and then explode with the force of a hand grenade. This property is also a secondary method of reproduction, which is coincidentally potentially fatal to nearby creatures as the eggs of the bangbird are shelled in a substance equivalently as hard as steel.Bangbirds have found a use among certain militaries who clip off their wings and legs and use them as living grenades. A few enterprising researchers have been attempting to breed them to seek out targets and then penetrate themselves on purpose, with a fairly low success rate and a high rate of detonated researchers. Wizards who have discovered the secrets of controlling insectoid minds will make use of them as remote bombs for the purpose of untraceable assassinations.
>TerrakeetThe terrakeet is a species of budgie that looks like a more muted variant of the common parakeet. Terrakeets live in areas with large stony vertical surfaces, preferrably rough and natural in design, where they use their incredibly tough beaks to chisel out holes to live in. Terrakeets do not discriminate between surfaces when a natural one is not available, and have proven to be a problem in settlements with buildings made of brick and mortar. They can cause a lot of damage and structural danger with a large flock if left unchecked.Terrakeets feed off of small bugs, fruits, hard nuts, seeds, and eat stones to aid in digestion. The average terrakeet can consume more food than your typical budgie.Terrakeet eggs appear as smooth, round gemstones, but that's merely a strange illusion on the shell caused by a weird layout and design on the surface of the egg. This causes normal predators of birds to usually skip over their eggs, though this does pose a problem with creatures that fancy shiny objects.A terrakeet has an average budgie intelligence, capable of learning some words or mimickry of some sounds with enough training. Terrakeets also exhibit an unusual property when they die - their bodies turn to stone, and become very brittle over a few days. When this happens, the terrakeet remains can be crumbled and sprinkled onto soil. This in turn causes that soil to become very fertile, and crops grown in it grow easier and with noticeably larger yields.As a result, Terrakeets are considered a threatened species as they are often hunted for this unusual property.
Is there any way we could record these into some kind of /tg/ bestiary?I think that could be pretty cool.
>BaloonA strange amoeba-like creature that hovers, controlling its movement with careful manipulation of internal gases.Baloons are often seen around swampy areas, mushroom-infested biomes and in damp areas underground. They feed off of spores and microparticles from decaying plants and creatures diffused into the air. The average baloon can grow as large as two and a half feet in diameter. The gas inside of them is extremely flammable and toxic to most organic creatures, causing sickness, blindness, and possibly death in a matter of hours of inhaling the gas.Baloons are passive creatures, they do not respond to stimuli such as the presence of creatures around, though they do subconsciously avoid surfaces when possible, caring not for anything that might be in the way of the discharge.A baloon's exterior is very thin, and if permeated the creature pops and releases their stored gas. A spark or flame is very dangerous as this can cause the creature's gas to explode, and this can in turn cause other baloons to rupture and explode as well causing a massive blast.Some people "milk" these creatures for their gases, useful in a process that can convert the toxic nature of it into a liquid for dipping weapons into. The process is a secret, the details of which are only known to few individuals, though many have tried to duplicate it - often ending in volatile failure.

>Moon WormA bio luminescent yellow/green worm capable of growing to a length of a foot long over the course of a year.These creatures are often considered pests because they consume vegetation almost indiscriminately and consume large quantities.Their bodies cast off a constant, pale light similar to that of a firefly but as bright as a dim torch. They lay little pearl-like eggs in a sticky silky substance, these eggs a pale blue color and casting off a very dim light of their own.While considered a pest in most societies, druidic circles and wealthy nobles have found them to be a very attractive light source, placed in areas with magical regrowth on plantlife.
>Imp-EarialsA species of imp-like winged creatures a foot and a half tall at most.These creatures are highly intelligent and form their own societies in old dungeons and deep underground. Imp-earial life is similar to that of many civilized societies, save for an unusual personality trait that causes some of them to withdraw from their societies and embark on adventures with no particular goal in mind.While typically harmless, these wandering individuals tend to develop above average or even exceptional powers, the strongest of which have been seen to approach a third or fourth level sorcerer and fighter.The wandering Imp-Earials tend to form small collectives with a unified uncertain destination when they encounter one another, and upon reaching "It", their point of destination, they settle down and start a new society there.Their society favors creatures with big ears. The bigger the ears, the more important they are. They believe elves are gods.
>>56455054>mfw imp-earials end up encountering elephants
>>56431330>Rustbeak>A small sized bird very similar in appearance to the common woodpecker. Because their natural habitat is the ironwoods forest, their beaks have developed the ability to rapidly oxidize metals. While not dangerous or hostile, they can be quite the nuisance if a nest crops up near a town, since to the bird, there is little difference between a metal tree and Mr. Johnson's water pipes.
>Puppet GhostA child-like spirit that possesses socks or dolls.These spirits enjoy amusing one another by playing tricks on people, usually when they're sleeping.It is not uncommon for them to possess socks and slip themselves onto peoples hands, only to begin emulating a sockpuppet show that terrifies the person when they wake up. The spirits then instantly flee, giggling as they exit.The origin of these spirits are unknown, but they tend to be more prevalent in places where child murders tend to occur.
>DeeringerA deeringer is a dangerous deer creature that is believed to be the spirit of nature's vengeance.Deeringers are spirits that appear as small peaceful lights that lurk deep in the woods. Hunters often describe them as strange ghostlike wisps that brush leaves and snap twigs as they pass.When a Deeringer senses a spirit with the intent of hunting for sport, it quickly moves to intervene and engage in combat with that creature. They are capable of striding through woodlands at speeds well over sixty miles per hour, and often catch their victims unaware. When they engage in combat they manifest themselves as very large, powerful deer with many horns and radiate a verdant aura. They do not hesitate and battle with hoof and horn, driving their opposition away with loud intimidating sounds. If the creature retreats and no longer seeks to hunt for sport in the woods, the Deeringer lurks for a while before returning to its dormant state. It does not hesitate to kill in combat.
>Sound Drake>The size of a Medium Dog, Sound Drakes are raised and bred to be alert hounds. With highly advanced vocal chords and a two chamber vocal box, a Sound Drake can mimic almost any sound it hears and perform Stereo vocalizations>The most well trained Sound Drake can even throw it's voice.>Serving as Alert Animals, a Sound Drake can often give of a specific cry for alarm and even confuse would be raiders with Phantom Sounds>The most infamous Sound Drake was "Sir" Brokk, the Sound Drake to the Dwarven King Bulokk the Bronzen, who managed to scare off an invading force of Goblins over 200 strong by mimicking the sounds of a great Dragon.
>Refreshing ElementalRefreshing Elementals are strange hovering water-like orb creatures from another plane that thrive off of compliments and satisfaction of others.These are believed to be a product of magical manipulation to create a personal bartender. These creatures possess the ability to telepathically read the minds of nearby creatures and they use this ability to decide the perfect drink to serve to them. Creatures will usually always find that their drinks are perfect and are just what they wanted, without having to ask. It is unknown how exactly these drinks are made, but upon observation componets such as ice, mixers, fruits, knives and other objects can be seen to phase in and out of the creatures water-like orb body.A single Refreshing Elemental can produce drinks for up to four individuals every minute, without requiring anything, even glasses or other vessels for the liquids. They can produce many drinks, but are limited to things that are actually safe for the creature to consume. They are subject to falsified surface thoughts wither from extreme training or from magic, but they still possess some sense of sanity-checking and will not produce liquid gold for a human to drink.Whenever a person is finished with their beverage, the drinking vessel disappears when nobody is looking. It's not sure how this happens.

>BanSeabassA Banseabass (A play on Banshee-Seabass) is an unusual species of fish that resulted from magical runoff from a wizard's experimentation. These fish are identical to regular bass save for one small physical change that has given them the ability to produce a very loud high-pitched shriek when they are threatened. Fishermen will usually hear this as they pull them above the surface of the water, oftentimes causing such as shock of surprise that they let the fish go without thinking about it.The sound does not function underwater, thankfully.

>"Peacekeeper" CapybaraThese large rodent creatures are very similar to their nonmagical counterparts, ordinary Capybara. Physically under normal light they appear to be ordinary capybara, but when under moonlight they begin to emit a soft peaceful white glow, their fur turning a silvery color.They possess an above-average intelligence for creatures like them, and are capable of sensing the motives and the surface thoughts of creatures within fifty feet.They exude an aura of peace, compelling creatures that get close or witness it to feel at ease, removing intentions to hunt or harm from them while they remain in the area of effect. In addition, creatures feel compelled to rest and relax around the creature for a few hours. This peaceful feeling lingers for up to an hour after the creature leaves the area. A creature affected by this creature cannot be enticed to sleep more than once per day, but is subject to feeling pacifist upon entering the aura under most normal circumstances.These creatures are highly prized, but as a result their numbers dwindle greatly as these creatures absorb the negative feelings of those they affect, and in a large society of people the sheer amount of negativity tends to render these creatures sickened, and eventually causes them to die.
>>56455867I would, but I have neither the time, nor the experience. Good luck to anyone who takes up this endeavor.
>Vigilante LizardA horned lizard that senses and hates chaos.These lizards appear as pale green or blue lizards of up to four feet in length with very durable scales and chameleonlike horns. Their faces have a bit of black to them that makes them look like they are wearing masks.These creatures are typically neutral and passive to most, preying on small mice and birds usually, but they possess an unusual quality that allows them to sense the presence of chaotic creatures within a large area.When a chaotic creature is discovered, the lizard often seeks to engage in combat with it to the death for reasons unknown. They do not seem to discriminate between targets, often throwing themselves at creatures way larger and stronger.They attack with bites and horns, sometimes even with a slap from their tails. Attacks on humans have killed before, but only rarely. Due to their ability to detect chaotic individuals, paladins have been known to carry one of them as a pet and a potential scrying tool.
>Writer's OwlWriter's Owls are a species of white feathered owls that were born out of magical manipulation of a bored wizard.These owls are functionally identical to most other owls save for a unique quirk in their feathers. Their feathers are easier to pluck than most avian creatures, and when they are drawn from the owl the quill is somehow covered in common writing ink.These owls have an uncanny regeneration and can recover any plucked feathers in as little as six hours, or as long as twenty four.They absolutely hate it when people pull their feathers out and will screech, claw and bite in response.

>Granite LionsA breed of mountain lions who live on the rugged outcrops of Heavenward. As cubs they are hairless and their skin exudes a sticky substance to which their mothers will paw and scratch at the rocks to break them up for the cubs to roll around in. Over time the rocks stick to the cubs body and begin to shape into thick plates of stone with fur growing inbetween.The Oldest Granite Lions are massive with weather worn plates of living rock and have become the house symbol for the nearby royal family.They can be a problem though as lone males or mothers and their cubs will go into quarries and to smash the rocks and roll around in them.
The ChorusThe take the form of metal oorbs of varying sizes depending on age, the chorus feed upon ferrous materials and have moderate to strong control magnetism in their area, because of their diet which is made up larely of iron and steel the chorus are often found near large natural veins of iron. The internal structure of a chorus is made of hundreds of tiny petal like leafs which scomhow break down and assimilate ingested metal allowing them to grow, because of their internal structure being as magnetic as the rest of them they often seek out heat sources to weaken their magnetic feild some and aid the digestion.Adventurers have noted hives of chorus (called this for the strange beeping, honking sounds they produce) around natural deposites of iron using the strength of multiple chorus orbs to draw iron forth from the ground producing very complex hives in the proccess.Though generally docile by nature the chorus can be violent when provoked, and having control over magnetism as their main form of both defense and locomotion they have been known to hurl metal at relatinvely high speeds at those they would harm. Wearing metal armor is not advised when dealing with chorus.Should one find themselves in need of exterminating a chorus hive they should be warned that short of magic the best tools are wrapping ones self in enough leather to start a tannery and using a club to deal them blows, the fragile internal componants are easily damaged through blunt force and can be dealt with simply if one can close distance with them.

>>56453675>Incorrect AdderFUCKthat name got me good
>>56431330>Powder RatsA magical rat that was released into the sewers after a failed experiment, which for all intents and purposes is a normal rat. Except for when it is directly exposed to high heat or direct contact with flame much like a standard small gunpowder grenade. In times of house fires they can be a particular menace as the exploding rat often spreads the fire through explosions and property damage. They have also become popular as a pranks for gutter urchins who'll tie a wick to the rats tails and deposit them into an unsuspecting occupants outhouse whilst in use. It is for these two reasons the rats are ruthlessly hunted by city officials and angry tenants a like.
>Sun DogsSemi-rare canines that inhabit the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States. Slightly oversized, these gold-colored predators are most famous for their furs natural bio-luminescent ability - the animal can emit visible and UV light. When not hunting and in normal health, they appear to have a faint glow, but can appearing anywhere from lightless to incredibly blinding at will. This is most commonly used as a hunting tactic (sneaking up on prey before jumping out with a brilliant flash of light, like a living flash grenade) but is also a social indicator of mood and as a threat display. They are quite intelligent, but no more intelligent than a non-magical dog can be. Their diet is identical to that of wolves, but due to their energy expenditure must consume roughly three times as much nutrients as an equivalent canine.Though the animal is considered sacred and protected by most locals, there is a strong poaching economy surrounding the animal and foreign buyers, and it's not uncommon for Game Wardens to violently clash with poacher teams over the animals. A common "quirk" of individuals who handle Sun Dogs is that, due to the animals tendency to stick to formations and positioning, the natural UV light they emit will cause the handler to have a lopsided tan, with darker skin indicating the position the Sun Dog normally occupies on the team.>EbondeerLarge, antlered deer native to upland and forested regions of the United States. Though it shares many common features with local Whitetail, the Ebondeer has jet-dark fur, flesh, antlers, and even bones. Light almost appears to bend around the animal, and when in moonlight the creature casts no shadow. Tracking it while moving rapidly is nearly impossible, even to those with the sharpest of eyes, and its reflection in FLIR sights or thermal optics is negligent, despite the creature still being warm-blooded. Its furs, antlers, and bones are hugely prized as a sign of a skilled huntsman.
This thread is great.>Dream DragonA small lizard that feeds off emotions.Dream dragons typically grow no larger than a foot in length, and they appear as transparent and frilly lizards, usually bluish with gradients of green or pink. They are winged and are commonly mistaken for pseudodragons.The Dream Dragon's diet is unknown, but it is believed they get their sustenance from invading and manipulating dreams, preying on the emotional responses they can evoke from their victims.When a Dream Dragon finds a sleeping creature it will look for a place to lay next to the creature's head and will fall asleep, pressed against it. Once this happens, the creature is able to connect to its victim's dream, or force the creature into a dream if it is not having one. Once inside, the dream dragon will watch whatever is happening unfold, occasionally provoking the dreamer with an unusual occurrence such as making a person they're talking to harmlessly melt into a colorful painting of themself on the floor. Sometimes the dream dragon may become bored if the dream is not providing enough response to its antics and will substitute a dreamscape of its own creation for the dreamer.When a dream dragon is satisfied, it collects a piece of the victim's memory of the dream as a token it can hoard later. These tokens manifest themselves as strange shimmering soft pedals, almost rose-like in shape. If consumed before resting, the imbiber will have a dream about whatever was stored inside. If multiple pedals are consumed, it can blend and create strange and bizarre scenarios, possibly even nightmares.Dream Dragons are hard to study. They possess an unusual ability that lets them physically phase out of the material plane for a short time, allowing them to escape capture or other perceived physical threats to themselves.
>"Land Torpedo" HareThese hares are brown rabbits with unusually large feet and claws. The "Torpedo" hare possesses an uncanny burrowing ability that allows them to rapidly spin and dig tunnels in softer soil, drilling and moving at up to speeds of thirty miles an hour. These hares use this burrowing ability to evade predators that would normally be able to catch them by digging down into the ground and emerging elsewhere.They get their name from their pest-like behavior in gardens, burrowing and zipping through gardens destroying and consuming crops. Farmers that suspect or know that these hares are in the region will often times stick spiked metal plates into the soil to deter and kill them before they can invade and ruin their crops.Torpedo hares are supposedly a product of a bastardization of a common brown rabbit and a mole, infused with a touch of temporal haste magic by an asshole wizard who had a feud with a farmer who refused to allow his daughter to go off and study the arcane arts instead of becoming a farm hand.

I'm stealing most of this from STALKER. Sue me.Flesh tresh. It's a pile of animal carcass remains bound together to a new organism by magical fungi. The ensuing product varies, some flesh tresh are horse sized seven legged horrorshows while others are like a spleen with legs.They spend their days being disgusting and consuming some parts of other carcasses for energy, and adding some parts to themselves. They shy away from light and are quite docile in general, nearly always preferring to shamble away from conflict or play dead (which is quite easy to do for them). When they reach prime size (varies from cow to mammoth) they start a journey towards suitable environments for fungus growth. Once they reach their destination they settle down, becoming gestating hubs for new fungi spores. The spores fly away when the flesh tresh disassembles, and the cycle starts again.They are curious by nature, and can be seen scavenging adventurer campsites for food at night

>>56453528>only one percent of the timeWith the way typical rodent populations are, that's still a pretty sizable amount of lucky rats.I'm assuming they aren't true-breeding, or else they'd have simply outbred regular rats long ago.
>Swear ToadCreated as a joke by a bored spellcaster, they have since escaped and multiplied to epidemic proportions in some cities.In all physical respects they are ordinary toads, however instead of croaking they swear loudly in any language they hear commonly, to ensure they are offending the highest number of people possible.
>>56436195>>56440772>>56450595>>56451039>>56453429>>56455483>>56461874I'm working on a setting where true dragons are extinct, but there are loads of various lesser draconic creatures about, so dragon-related stuff like this is great.Some of the draconic critters I have (mostly saved from previous threads like this):>Glumps: These reptiles resemble a cross between a turtle and a pig and are notorious for ruining farmland. The glump's diet consists primarily of underground fungi, insects, and small animals which it obtains by digging down from the surface. To aid with its digging, the glump will emit a stream of water from its mouth to soften the earth into mud. At night glumps will dig down into the earth until only their rock-like shell is visible. Some desert tribes will keep pet glumps as a source of water, but most societies consider them to be nuisances.>Drake Snake: Distantly related to dragons, these snakes are barely capable of producing more than a few sparks. They have a tendency to collect spare change from the floor and carry it back to their nests, which they line with dry leaves, straw and similar materials. If someone attempts to steal their "hoard," they will ignite the straw and sit safely in the flames, protected by their scales. In regions where these snakes are common, most cities have appointed snakecatchers who go around armed with wet cloth sacks, fireproof gauntlets, and large metal prongs, as uncontrolled drake snake populations pose a significant fire hazard.>Ingot eater: A squat, burrowing ground-drake typically the size of a large mole, with large, strong foreclaws. It is capable of digging through rock, and feeds on stone and metal, making it a particular menace for blacksmiths and most miners. However, they are considered a great boon to gold miners, as they cannot digest the precious metal, leaving enriched deposits of it in their stool. Prospectors look out for ingot eater spoor for signs that a vein may be nearby.
Some stuff from real-world folklore:Muscaliet: A rodentlike creature with a harelike body, stiff hair, and a prehensile, squirrel-like tail. It has a mole-like muzzle with tusks like a boar, and is an excellent climber, though it lives in an underground burrow. It can emit great heat from its body, which causes nearby vegetation to parch.Parandrus: A large elklike creature that lives in deserts. It can change its coloration like a chameleon to blend into its surroundings.Scitalis: A snake with shining patterns on its skin that hypnotise those that look upon it. It moves slowly, but uses its hypnotic abilities to slow its prey.Keukegen: From Japanese folklore; a kami that appears as a small doglike creature covered entirely with very long hair. It lives in damp, dark places and spreads disease.Strong toad: A toad with a turtle-like shell. It can glow like a firefly, and its gaze can attract or repel those nearby as it wishes. It can't be killed except by burning.Squonk: A rather pathetic critter with warty skin in baggy wrinkled folds. Ashamed of its appearance, it spends much of its time hidden away, weeping. When threatened, it evades capture by dissolving itself into a pool of bubbling tears.Squidgicum-squee: An extremely skittish critter that, when spotted, takes a deep breath and swallows itself, vanishing into thin air.

Thunder Horns-Cow like creatures where the males are especially muscular as they have special groups of muscles that allow them to store electricity and discharge it through their horns, hence their name.occasionally there is talk of a Great Thunder Horn which is said to have been struck by lightning and survived making it even more powerful then it's normal counterparts. To kill and eat the meat of such a creature is rumored to give a man great strength and the horns would be worth their weight in gold.

should I put the ones from the OG thread from 3 years ago on the 14chan thing too?http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/33885799/
>>56431330Blink GnatsLike regular gnats, except they can teleport one foot in any direction.
These are from a fantasy setting for a story I was writing, some are more finished than others.>>Storm OwlsSimilar in appearance to common owls except for their distinct black/deep-purple-with-yellow-highlights coloring, these owls carry with them a tiny field of moisture and static electricity. Unlike common owls, they are known to travel in flocks. When this happens, they form a mighty thunderstorm, in which they fly at the center undisturbed When hunting prey, a Storm Owl will momentarily transform into a bolt of lightning, striking small mammals on the ground while instantaneously cooking them.>>Pelt WolvesLarger and shaggier than common wolves, these creatures are notable for shedding not just their fur, but their entire pelt. The territory of a pack of Pelt Wolves can immediately be recognized by soft, thick furs littering a forest floor. Preferring to sleep above-ground rather than in dens, their main nests are piled so high with pelts that the ground underneath is completely hidden. Indolent in nature, they spend a large portion of their time sleeping Though not domesticated by any means, they are highly intelligent and have been known to befriend humans, with whom they like to cuddle. They do not hunt often, due to their symbiotic relationship with Bacines, featured below.>>Bacines (name pending)Porcine creatures resembling boars and domesticated pigs, Bacines wander through the forest in herds, digging through the soil for truffles, acorns, tubers, and the like. Displaying extreme girth, they have developed a unique evolutionary adaptation to avoid predation: extreme gluttons, a Bacine will eat until it is so fat it can no longer walk, at which point it will shed the flesh off its belly, leaving behind a large parcel of meat still entirely enveloped in skin that will stay fresh for weeks. Thus its would-be-predators (the Pelt Wolves) have no reason to kill them, and instead become their protectors and swineherds.
continuing from >>56477170>>Dire SquirrelsMuch larger than their mundane cousins, Dire Squirrels are the size of small-to-medium dogs. Their fur is deep black and their eyes are an almost luminescent leaf-green. Most noticeably, they have leathery wings attached to their forelimbs, allowing them to do more than glide between the trees like the common flying squirrel, but indeed to fly above the canopy. They are exceptionally intelligent and often learn a primitive version of the language of the local human population, although the only things they care to talk about are gossip, rumors, and insults.>>SoilthsGiant, burrowing sloths, Soilths move through the topsoil at a glacial pace. They are so slow, in fact, that most people do not notice them at all. They eat the soil itself and have little concern for the outside world. Out of a Soilth's back grows a mundane tree, feeding off the nutrients the creature metabolizes from the dirt and providing the burrowing sloth with energy from photosynthesis. The tell-tale sign of a grove of Soilths is the seeming appearance of walking trees.>>NightbearsMonstrous, indigo bears with amethyst-like crystals jutting out from their skin like knives, Nightbears feed off the fears of dreaming people. To create this fear, they terrorize human settlements at night, attacking at random times and targeting the most vulnerable. After a raid, they will prowl outside the town to gorge themselves on the negative emotions of the townspeople as they climb fearfully back into their beds.

Just for posterity, but I'm stealing and editing some entries for my own use.>>56431330>Glass RollerA small, scaled mammal that feeds off shrubbery and smaller animals. It is noted for its striking translucent glass scales that coat the tail, and ability to breath an intense wave of heat. This heat breath is used for preying on insects and blinding potential predators.The quality and color of the scales vary with region, seemingly dependent on the sand the Roller consumes to make and maintain its scales. These scales are also used in mating rituals, as variety in color signifies a well-traveled Roller, and great clarity is a sign of a powerful breath.>>56431594>Corpse FeederA breed of wasps that encourage as well as prey on undead. They make their nests in corpses that are about to spawn wisps or zombies. When disturbed, the wasps spread out to harry any exorcist or gravetender that seeks to bury the corpse. In return, the wisps protect the wasps from more natural predators, while the zombies serve a mobile nests.However, as they are aptly named, the Corpse Feeders slowly devour the "nest" for themselves, and only need to search for another corpse to lay a new nest. Care must be taken when exterminating them, as the necrotic energy they release can taint flowers and poison beehives.

>>56478951Expansion is probably a better effort in this case than alteration, only because some of these are like one sentence concepts
>>56478142>>56435694>Blood SapperDespite the name, the creature is completely benign. The bloodline of a hero long passed was cursed with undeath, but as the centuries went by and the bloodline thinned, the mystical tampering divorced the blood from the owner as it crawls on the dungeon floors. It has developed enough to have a paper thin skin the shape of a ball, rolling around aimlessly in the dark and dangerous places of this world. It subsists on spilled blood, essentially keeping crypts clean.Do not consume whether raw or cooked. I repeat, Do Not Consume.>>56437799>WalkweedA curious creature that is more plant than animal, they are drawn to camps and other sources of light. When approached, they hide as ordinary plants. Their presence is a sign of fresh water and a lack of predators that see with thermal vision.While not intentionally harmful, their whimsical movements have caused more than a few parties to get lost in forests, as the entire scenery can change overnight.
>>56480617>>56439291>WoodcrafterA native of the western woods, it is notable for having brown, bark-like plumage and the intricacy with which it carves nests. Using an iron-hard beak, it carves up trees into perfect angles and bizarre patterns to get at the grubs within and provide shelter for potential mates.The most intricate and precise rulers come from Ironwood trees carved up by Woodcrafters. Other bits are harvested as jewelry and decorations, but tricking the birds into carving more valuable materials degrades their beaks and eventually kills them with exhaustion.
>>56481662>>56440421>GlyphspinnersSpiders who weave their webs into glyphs to trap their prey. Each variety weaves only a single glyph, which, while lethal to flies, is merely inconvenient and strange to passing humanoids.Walking into a web triggers an experience akin to a high, but without significant impairment to thoughts and judgement. Spores appear as blinking lights, and the rustling of leaves takes on a musical rhythm to the listener. Rot and mold upon the floor seem to arrange themselves into an intelligent but undecipherable language, while webs become practically invisible.Thankfully, the glyphspinner's capacity for magic is weak. The strength of the glyph is largely unaffected by size, so the spiders remain normal sized to focus on flies and other insects.
>thread>totally taking notesThis thread is a gold mine, especially since I have a low level player who is obsessed with killing chaotic outsiders, I could use some pest level magic beasties to throw at them.Here's one off the cuff contribution for the thread>Acicular Golems(or simply crystalline golems)These golems started off as servants of some ambitious mages attempting to create a new type of golem. Technically they succeeded, but they did not live to see it. Their creation was thought to be a total dud, small simple golems made from locally found crystals, but they were too fragile and fell apart at the slightest of exertions. Little did these mages know that each fragment that broke was still alive to a certain extent. Over years and years these shards of golems were reclaimed by the earth and eventually met with other minerals and grew. Though their bodies are fragile the golems are now independent thanks to years of natural minerals and magic feeding them. The wild chaos of the natural magic has also helped their multiplicative and growth potentials, allowing each shard to grow into a small independent creature within just a few short months given they're in a rich natural area such as a cave or in the soil.They tend to take the form of nearby wildlife as best as they can, attempting to mimic the nearby creatures and learn from them. Though a single one isn't very dangerous and they're not generally considered harmful they can become a serious hazard if they're not dealt with properly and removed. If one is attacked, its fragile structure will easily break and these shards will form the 'seeds' from which will grow many more of its kind, eventually overrunning an area and turning the land barren by consuming all the compatible minerals nearby.
>>56481796>contThey often appear as a fibrous version of nearby wildlife, and their colors can vary widely depending on the minerals they've absorbed. Though they don't mean harm, their simple intelligence (even for animals) leads them to merely mimic the behaviors they see of the creatures they model their shape after. Thus, a wolf shaped acicular golem would behave much like a wolf might but without the capacity to adapt during a fight. Their size can vary widely as well depending on when they were discovered, and it isn't uncommon to discover them in large quantities wandering barren areas or in mines or cave networks. When the land nearby is depleted of compatible minerals they will sometimes take to consuming eachother or 'merging', which can sometimes create unusual monstrosities. Other times they might simply wander off in search of a more mineral rich area.>one wanders into a dwarf cityI would imagine dwarves would have a very odd love/hate relationship with these creatures, simultaneously considering them to be the worst of pests and beautiful works of art. It might have even been a dwarf wizard who made them
>>56441543>>56443885so it's either you risk having all your written documents get eaten, or an everpresent threat of catsplosion.Dwarves sure have it hard.
continued from >>56477187>>SpideerSimilar in appearance to mundane White-Tail Deer, these creatures are distinguishable by the intricate spiderweb strung between their antlers. The spider at the center is actually in control of the deer's body, which is a construct with no mind of its own. By manipulating the web, which is connected to the muscles and nerves of the deer-body, the spider controls the deer-construct like a marionette. Thus a Spideer can only be killed by destroying the puppet-master spider in the center of its horns. Any damage done to the deer's body will eventually be repaired by the spider, who will spin new "flesh" to replace any damaged tissue.
>>56481722>>56441543>Litra-miteSimilar in stature to other breeds of small bug that eat paper, it consumes the written word. This is not limited to books, and if left to run amok for too long, even the venerable edda carved into dwarven halls can be ruined. If squished between blank pages of a book, the consumed words spill out and pepper the pages, but not necessarily in coherent fashion. Their ichor makes a potent and acidic ink which other litra-mites do not consume, and cannot be erased by magical means. Occasionally, non-sapient critters which eat litra-mites gain some intelligence. This is most often the case with cats, notorious in dwarf homes as pest-control. They gain a simple understanding of written words, and sometimes even the magical means to speak.>>56443997>Echo-hopperSmall frogs that can blink 3-5 meters. They are so named because of the disproportionately loud croaks they make compared to their size. A single hopper blinking and croaking can sound like the cacophony of ten frogs, and they are notoriously hard to silence. They also croak a lot when mating.Keen hunters will notice they can only blink once per jump and only mid-flight. Scholars theorize that the secret behind their blinking is within their pale purple legs. The croaking sacks are traditionally boiled and used as bags for tea or remedies as edible containers.

>Cutlass DrakeIts nests in natural arches and the sides of sea cliffs, but always far away from other living creatures. They wander the open sky hunting for large sea creatures to carry back to their homes.When they are sighted by seafarers, all swords are sheathed out of respect. It's said if a man lifts his sword in challenge to the beast, it will duel him to the death.
>>56477913That's a pretty rad warming sign
>Brain-picking LyrebirdSlightly smaller than their brethren due to a lack of a digestive system, this fruit of reckless magical experimentation feeds on the psychic energy of thoughts and dreams. Once its digestion is complete, the original mindpiece is "regurgitated" in the form of a localized and intense, but harmless, psychic message that can be understood by any sapient creature nearby(e.g.: "These pretzels are making me thirsty!", "I should have bought that greataxe instead of a year supply of body oil", or "Wait, don't I know that bartender?"). Those hit by the burst have no idea of whom the thought originally belongs to, although it usually can easily be inferred or assumed by observing one's surroundings. The feeding itself is also harmless, even though it tends to cause a sensation of dejà vu.The intensity and size of the psychic burst are loosely related to how satisfied the bird was after feeding, as well as the complexity of the consumed thoughts.

>>56493415Elaborating a bit on that concept.>LoewbugsAlso called "sculptor beetles", "bugmasons", and "writing beetles", Loewbugs are a strange, magical cousin of the common dung beetle. Distinguishable by the gold, slightly luminescent markings on the edges of their carapace, the Loewbeetle acts much the same as its mundane cousins, with one appreciable difference; While the common dung beetle uses its dung balls as sources of food or places to hide eggs, the Loewbeetle uses it as raw materials. Loewbeetles are capable of animating decomposing and previously organic matter, and have found the best results with dung and other excrement. While they cannot animate it forever, the Loewbeetle doesn't need to. Instead, it uses the dung as material and mason both, shaping it into dwellings, hives, and storage areas made entirely out of a substance which the beetle itself eats. Additionally, Loewbeetles have been known to animate a ball of dung as they are rolling it for short bursts, letting them roll balls far larger than their normal bodies could handle.
>>56483337>>56455274>RustbeakA medium sized bird with long, billowing feathers. Adapted to live off of grub that hides in ironwood and ore deposits, their beaks posses the ability to rapidly oxidize metal. While not overtly hostile, a flock of migrating Rustbeaks can quickly disintegrate pipes and aqueducts in search of food.Their territory is famously marked by brown and green rust filings, ample soil for ironwood to grow. While magic is effective enough for dealing with them, rustbeak hunters primarily employ poison and bone weapons. The feathers are suitable for making camouflage, while the beaks serve as convenient catalysts for alchemic reactions.
>Living LibraryDeep under the arid earth, a vast library was conceived and wrought centuries before. Untold amounts of writing lie in the endless halls, hidden in the dark. The coagulation of knowledge resulted in a consciousness, who's mind became the physical tomes that served as its crucible. A small creature, very primitive being with the barest of instincts
CavehorsesShriveled, translucent skin, blind, excellent tactile sense and spatial awareness. They stand on average 1 foot to 3 feet smaller than shetland ponies
Someone please make screencaps of these so I can save them, I'm too technologically impaired to do it myself.
Thought excercise, what are mundane versions of magical creatures? Mundane dragons, griffons, unicorns. And something more creative than lizard, lion, and horse. Like here in this thread we're largely making nonmagical creatures more magical. What about making intrinsically magical creatures slightly less magical?

>>56470039>Thunder Drake: Just like a drake, (>>56436195) but much bigger, and instead of smoking its prey out, it startles it with the sound of thunder. They scavenge after stampedes, trick critters into taking shelter from fake stormy weather, and of course force critters to flee in unideal frantic terror.>Fire Drake: This drake has wing under its arms that let it glide much like a flying squirrel. The fire drake spends most of its time lying on rocks, absorbing sunshine. It can discharge this sunshine in the form of a death beam which is cast from a third, blind, crystal eye which sits in the middle of its forehead. The extremely bright sunbeam of the fire drake can burn through an inch of steel per second and is aimed with sniper precision from hundreds of meters away. It uses this beam to hunt prey directly or, in desperate cases, cause fires that force prey out into the open.

>>56499549...COMBATA digester is a hunting and eating machine. When it is nothungry (which is rarely), it lies low and avoids most other crea-tures. When hunting, it looks about for a likely target, thencharges forth and delivers a gout of acid. If the initial attack isinsufficient to kill the prey, the digester attacks with its hind feetuntil it can spray acid again.Acid Spray (Ex): A digester can spray acid in a 20-foot cone,dealing 4d8 points of damage to everything in the area. Once adigester uses this ability, it can’t use it again until 1d4 rounds later.The creature can also produce a concentrated stream of acid thatdeals 8d8 points of damage to a single target within 5 feet. Ineither case, a DC 17 Reflex save halves the damage. The save DC isConstitution-based.Skills: A digester’s coloration gives it a +4 racial bonus onHide checks. It also has a +4 racial bonus on Jump checks.

>>CatsMammalian, carniverous quadrapeds, these creatures are roughly the size of small dogs. Through an unknown, psionic mechanism they enter into a socially parasitic relationship with humans, from whom they receive favors and affection with no observable reciprocation. Many believe cats can see into extradimensional planes of existence, as they lose their shit at apparent phenomena invisible and undetectable by human senses. Possessing preternatural reflexes, they are known to always land on their feet and are even said to possess nine lives. Although theybdk kill other forms of more mundane vermin, they are themselves still more nuisance than helpful, seeming to delight in breaking things and trying to trip people walking down stairs.
>Stentor beetle(lifted from a stat block I made, so forgive the 5e stats below)Stentor beetles are approximately five feet long, four feet wide and four feet high. They have a glossy, domed black shell strong enough to deflect most attacks. Generally docile and herbivorous, they can propel themselves away from predators using a violent chemical reaction from their abdomen.ActionsBlast off! (Recharge 4–6) The stentor beetle releases a noisy blast of volatile fluids from its carapace, flipping it into the air. Creatures within 5 feet must make a DC 10 dexterity saving throw. They are knocked back 10 feet and take 1d4 acid damage on a failed save; they remain in place and take half damage if they are successful. The stentor beetle is thrown 20 feet to a location of its choice.Bite Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5ft., one target. Hit 3 (1d4 + 1)
>>56494640>>56461658>EbonstagA sleek, large breed of deer native to the densely packed forests of the Mended States. Though it shares many common features with local Whitetail, the Ebondeer has jet-black fur, flesh, antlers, and even bones. The herbivore is unnaturally stealthy, and casts no shadow under moonlight. It is nearly impossible to track under the dense canopy.Its furs is hugely prized as a sign of a skilled huntsman, but only the black bones impart the same level of stealth to a wearer. While the creation of a full suit is difficult in both cost and design, arrows made from the bones, and antlers in particular, easily slide through magical barriers.

>PlumfreetThe smallest known species of griffin, most notable for its docile temperament and attractive plumage; as such, it is a popular pet. Wild plumfreets are found on grassy plains and eat insects of all sorts, including termites, lesser dire centipedes, and worms. In captivity, plumfreets are known to eat anything presented to them, though they prefer their natural prey.Whether or not the plumfreet should be classed as a true griffin is a matter of some scholarly debate - it is the only flightless griffin, and the only griffin that is not an obligate carnivore.Plumfreets are best kept in pairs or larger groups. Lone plumfreets develop behavioural problems, including hostility, depression, and gluttony. Gluttonous plumfreets display a seemingly limitless appetite - they have been known to eat entire wheels of cheese in one sitting. Any food a gluttonous plumfreet consumes in excess of its nutritional requirements is immediately use to fuel growth. Given sufficient food, they can double in size every week; and their appetite grows in proportion to their size. Once overfed, a gluttonous plumfreet cannot return to its previous size, and will do little but preen and feed.Overfed plumfreets are considered a delicacy in some East Asian countries, though the practice of mass-breeding, isolating, and force-feeding them has come under increasing criticism from animal-rights activists in recent years.>>56453366I like this one.>>56500137Heh.

>>56431330Lugston PophopperDiscovered by the famed explorer Henrie Lugston, the Pophopper is a fat, four inch long orange slug that appears to be a conventional example of the breed, but has the curious ability to create a small detonation on its underside using some kind of magical reaction, propelling it up to ten feet into the air in almost any direction as a means to startle and escape predators. Pophoppers are especially notorious in the breeding season, where thousands of them can congregate into dense herds, leading to anyone stumbling upon them getting a mighty shock as countless gastropods are propelled into the air at high velocity.There have been rumors of wizards experimenting with the species to create lethal explosions, but that would be ridiculous and such rumors are not to be taken seriously.

>>56500741>>56465165>GlumpsThese reptiles have a rocky back, are as fat as pigs, and are notorious for ruining farmland. The glump obtains its primary diet of underground fungi, insects, and small animals by digging down from the surface. To aid with its digging, the glump will emit a stream of water from its mouth to soften the earth into mud. At night glumps will dig down into the earth until only their rock-like shell is visible. Left alone, they can turn fertile plains into bogs and erode the land's resistance to flooding.Glump water, while potable, has a stench that clings to clothes and is difficult to boil out. Attempts to use glumps for terraforming result in temporary floods and destroyed ecosystems, more often than not. Some desert tribes will keep pet glumps as an emergency source of water, but most societies consider them to be nuisances.

Shrews are actually the fiercest animal known to experts but are rarely roused to anger even in the possible event of their death.Worms know the secrets of many magical spells but cannot cast them. They just gather them for fun. Sometimes they gather together in great wormmoots to exchange knowledge of spells.
>>56522441> Cherry WyrmNamed after their distinct colouration and dietary preference these diminutive distant cousins to the greater eastern dragons are a welcome resident in any cherry farm.While they will feed off of the fruit their appetites are not great and they will aggressively kill or drive off any other pests.
>MudmawsSmall terrestrial octopi which construct burrows for themselves in humid environments like swamps and bogs although certain populations inhabit drier climates of they have access to a steady supply of water. The cephalopods lie still with their long sinuous tentacles extended from the tunnel entrance. When a small animal such as a beetle or lizard happens by, it is ensnared and devoured. Mudmaw venom effectively paralyzes these small creatures but the mollusks do not inject enough in one dose to affect humanoids beyond a short lived numbness.
>>56510255>PantaloonsThey can be seen on foggy mornings, walking across the surface of the lake.The creatures disappear with the sun's true light, and are always immaculately clean. Those who attempt to push them off their feet and into the water become obsessive germaphobes.
>>56513011>NightlightsThese extraterrestrial lifeforms fall from the sky with the yearly passing of Linson's comet. Nightlights skip along in a jaunty, bouncing walk, devouring whatever light source they encounter. Lightbulbs, candles, and will-o-wisps are all enveloped and snuffed out. After enough light energy has been devoured, nightlights secrete a cocoon-like coating of obsidian and are pulled back into space. Their ascent is described as being "like gravity has reversed".
>Jaunt FlyThese small insects otherwise resemble the common housefly, with the exception of their coloration. However, when a Jaunt Fly feels it is threatened, it flickers in and out of reality in an attempt to confuse and escape from the threat. When they exit and re-enter this reality, they do so in a small puff of magical residue, which the common folk have come to call "fly-dust"So effective is this natural defense that colonies of jaunt flies have been known to drive innkeeps and other entrepreneurs up the wall in their attempts to rid their establishments of these pests.

>>56515087>>56477170>Polypine>Polypig>Lollipoly>Are any of these names good?Porcine creatures that wander through the forest in small herds, digging through the soil for truffles, acorns, tubers, and the odd rotten fruit. Displaying extreme girth, they have developed a unique evolutionary adaptation to avoid predation: when one eats until it is so fat it can no longer move, it undergoes a rapid metabolic process that sheds meaty polyps onto the ground. 70% of its body mass is lost in this way, leaving behind parcels of meat still entirely enveloped in skin that will stay fresh for weeks. Thus would-be-predators adapt to become their protectors and swineherds.While seemingly benign, their voraciousness and teamwork with predators utterly dominates an ecosystem. Smaller animals and insects are out-competed or simply eaten, while mushrooms are devoured before they have time to properly reintroduce nitrogen into the soil.
