#033 Crefih

The Crefih is an intelligent and tricky creature that attracts prey by reforming a tentacle-like appendage into the shape of a vulnerable animal. The body employs a natural camouflage and springs to attack anything that strays close to its trap. It's said that Crefih are nature's original tricksters.

#135 Lononin

Lononins are strange, trans-dimensional birds that are infamous for their ability to teleport anything they touch into another dimension. With no ears, all lononins are deaf. Younger lononins are usually very skittish and shy, often immediately teleporting away from unwary travelers who get too close.

#032 Frestnoch

Frestnoches evolved a thick fur across their abdomen to keep them warm in the harsh northern climates and have a varying amount of large, chitinous spikes protruding from their body that they use as tools to survive in the harsh wilderness. They largely eat trees and large bushes, but they also cut down trees to make large, circular piles for their egg nests. After laying their eggs, they'll cover their nest and remain inside to produce the warmth necessary for the eggs to grow, only leaving when necessary to collect more trees for food or when threatened.

#142 Nethele

Netheles are physical-realm ghosts that are cursed to haunt cities and forests. They are not necessarily evil but are tricksy, always trying to trick the people they encounter into doing something foolish. Netheles don't have mouths, but can speak to people telepathically in a way that emulates the sound of the listener's own voice. They often play pranks on people by taking their stuff and moving it around until they get very confused, but older or more aggressive netheles occasionally resort to more harmful and ill-willed pranks and trickery.

#327 Henevaspider

Henevaspiders are small creatures about the size of a schoolbus that are found in the mountains. They have dozens of long, thin legs, which have a sticky fluid on the underside of them, allowing them to cling to even the most treacherous rocky surfaces. Their bodies are soft and fragile and are covered with tiny, thin hairs; the hairs act like a web to capture small insects and bring them to the henevaspiders' mouths. Henevaspiders usually live in small communities of about fifty of themselves and will sometimes steal and ransom the eggs of other creatures in exchange for tasty offerings.

#316 Domestic Szon

For centuries, the nation-state of Szo have primarily fed their people with domestic szon and, in turn, fed their szon with their recently-deceased citizens. As a result, this domesticated variant of the deep-sea szon has taken on a deep symbolism for responsible population control. The domestic szon lacks the large mouth of its oceanic cousin and instead absorbs food particles through its gills, where it's filtered into the stomach. In times of crisis, Szo has been able to economically recover almost entirely from exports of an overabundance of szon.

#329 Alsjepsel

The alsjepsel is a large reptile-mammal hybrid that frequents acidic swamps in the southern hemisphere. The alsjepsel were first discovered by Nin adventurers that mistook them for a demon and started a century-long crusade to wipe them out, which left a nearly extinct population. These days, alsjepsel have mostly been able to repopulate, but keep to themselves and stay far away from humans when possible. When threatened they may attack, but otherwise the alsjepsel is a generally docile herbivore.

#334 Xolgar

Xolgars are giant birds native to tropical islands. When they hunt, they will pick up a strip of bark from a tree and carry it in their beaks, which they then use to create a makeshift hardnet to trap fish in the water. Once a fish has been caught, the xolgar will fly back up to a nearby tree, unroll the bark, and eat the fish. Because of their size, most other animals in their environments leave the xolgar alone.

#206 Mooshan

Mooshans are large, furry animals with thick, metallic fur. They live in forests and eat mostly plants, but they also like to hunt mice and other small animals. They are extremely intelligent and can learn to speak a language other than their own. They are covered in gold-laced fur that conducts heat extremely well, making them uncomfortably hot every summer and dangerously cold every winter. For this reason, wild mooshans typically prefer more mild climates.
