is a humongous, lumbering, and fortunately exceedingly rare, creature of the
northern Germon Doith and the Moredein Kaerath in the northwest of
Nybelmar. Capable of reaching heights of
sixteen to eighteen peds,
and weighing around an estimated 9000
pygges, the Bahimut is most
likely the largest, or at least the heaviest creature to walk the lands of
Caelereth. Even though it is easily
followed due to its size and the wake of destruction it creates, many things
surrounding these beasts remain veiled in mystery.
Stemming originally from the
region around Cartash, this type of bear is not only much bigger than his brown
bear relative but also much more dangerous. The full grown Cartashian Bear can
reach a height of three and a half peds thus rendering his opponents to mere
dwarves: Big, dangerous, bad tempered, and vaguely
smelly. There exist many different species of bears in the world of
Caelereth, but the
most notorious and feared of all is the so-called Cartashian Bear,
the most deadly bear known to man.
Eater, known also as the Behemoth Worm, Sand Serpent or Dune Shark, is a rare
breed of worm, which has become accustomed to life deep within the scorching
desert sands. These creatures can grow to a height of 3
peds, their lengths ranging
from 2.5 peds to 3
peds, and the average Eater
weighs over 8 pygges.
Eaters are found mostly in southeastern Aeruillin, but they have been seen in
the southwest as well. A group fo three Dune Sharks is often referred to as a
"pod", young worms are commonly called "Desert Maggots".
is an enormous, deadly lizard species which can mainly be found at the desert
continent of Aeruillin to the south of Sarvonia. The Exechon usually lives
in caves at lands consisting of sand and rock, but it is said that its
hunger can sometimes force it to leave its territory and that it can feast
on dozens of unaware travellers at once.
One thing that you should
be taught from youth is to never run into an Exechon alone, as a matter of fact
running into an Exechon in a group of ten people is also a bad idea. The Exechon
is an especially vicious, dangerous, and all around not friendly lizard. Those
rows of razor sharp teeth don't seem to be for show either.
Rats are enormous versions of the common rat, which can mainly
be found in Southern Sarvonia but mostly in the surrounding forests of
Voldar and the
Auturian Woods near Marcogg. They are
nocturnal animals, omnivorious and can be quite aggressive if provoked,
especially the females. People of Marcogg and the surrounding region even keep
Giant Rats for using their milk, which is said to give extra strength.
Giant Spiders are huge
predatory arachnids that try to avoid contact with all
other species. They are not very intelligent and work solely on instinct. As
well they are powerful and extremely quick. All Giant Spiders are poisonous in
two ways: paralyzing and gooifying. The sight of one instills fear in anyone
that sees one and gives the Spider an advantage.
Lightworms are large, sand-pale, desert
creatures. They, as their name suggests, produce the shining sandlike substance
in which the Desert of Light and the Bright Sea (at the
continent of Aeruillin) is covered with. This has given them the title
"Mothers of Light". The Lightworms juvenile form is
much more dangerous than the adult. In their juvenile stage they are large,
bloodsucking monsters - quite a hazard to anyone travelling through the Desert
of Light. These juvenile monsters are most commonly
known as Bloodworms.
(plural: Mermäc as well) is a large lizard-like beast
native to the Hol’Dispor, an enormous desert located in the southwest of the
Island of Denilou. They can be found
scattered across the enormous desert from the southwest edge to the northeast
edge near Toll Brok’Barrol. The Meräc dwells under a thin layer of sand, only
allowing its eyes and nose to show from the sand. It is a very deadly beast if
you get close enough to it when it is hungry. But it will not go looking for a
fight or food, it allows its food to come to it and only travels during the time
of mating when the male must go search for a mate.
is known all over the Aeruillin continent, though it resides only in parts of
the Sveltash Desert. It is a up to a dozen
peds long worm-like creature
that generally feeds on smaller desert animals. The name "Moonmouth" derives
from the mystical bright light
coming from behind the monster's teeth, which has a dazing effect on its prey.
Although this monster seems to exist in quite some
numbers, one cannot find it easily.
Netherbeast is said to be one of the most horrifying and bloodthirsty fiends
ever to walk the face of Caelereth.
Demonologists say that these wretched creatures were summoned and brought to
life through magical means thousands of years
ago from the depths of the Netherworlds
to wreak untold destruction. These beasts may vary completely in appearance,
ranging from spider-like forms with
human skulls to mighty horned skeletons or
slimy, toxic creatures resembling crawling brains and rumored to possess
magical abilities never dreamed of. Some
demonologists say that the Netherbeast is a vile combination of corpses and
bodily parts of other Netherworld
creatures. There are some accounts that the bite or wound made by a Netherbeast
can turn its victim into a Netherbeast themselves. This may explain how these
creatures reproduce. Regardless, it is generally agreed by most scholars that
the Mists of Osthemangar in
Northern Sarvonia have a fairly
high concentration of Netherbeasts stalking about within.
snakes are usually akin to lizards one wouldn't recognize this when viewing the
gigantic Ráhaz'Estár, the living horror of Southern
Sarvonian Continent. It resembles much more
a nightmare of a snake combined with the strength and size of a
So the Ráhaz'Estár or Giant Rock Snake is one of the great dangers a traveller
can encounter while crossing the desert of the Ráhaz'Dáth. With its length of up
to seven peds it is one of the biggest predators of the desert and its ability
to melt with its surroundings while lying unmovingly and waiting for its prey
not seldom cause the death of incautious travellers. Though being big and strong
this snake nevertheless kills the prey with its lethal venom.
IN THE SNOW
The Sleeper in the Snow, as
known by the Remusians, is
considered by many sages and researchers as a unique land ray. Upwards of two
peds in length and equally
wide, it seems to “swim” through snow and ice as easily as normal sea rays swim
in the seas. It is found within the frozen north of
Sarvonia, concentrated in the Iceland Coast
region, but stories of even larger ones being found in Cyhalloi have been told.
They are a predator that much is unknown, yet is much speculated on.
So-called "Slimers" are
strange morphing entities coming in a multitude of colours. They clearly are
generated through magical or alchemical means,
or in most cases a combination of both, though whenever they come into existence
it happens quite
unintentionally. Slimers appear as viscid moving carpets with a minimal form of
intelligence, focusing on expanding by absorbing substances - yet they can
develop into something distinctly beast-like with facial or claw-like feeatures
if they actually "digest" living things. Slimers may consist of a variety of
substances and the more sticky these substances are, the more they are capable
of climbing walls or even ceilings. While capable of splitting and living on as
two different creatures for a while, it is known that an accidentally created
Slimer only lasts for hours or days until it dissipates without being able to
actually reproduce itself in any way. Extremely sticky and disgusting variations
of these creatures, like grey and
nor'sidian ones, are also
referred to as "Oozers".
Stalker is a thin bipedal beast about 1 ˝
peds tall, which is often
mistaken for a tree. Though quite rare, it can be found in several of the larger
marshes of Sarvonia, from the
in the north to the Oka’Seri Swamp in the South.
The Swamp Stalkers’ most dangerous attribute is a thick liquid they secrete from
their bellies. This is a digestive substance which, when applied to a dead body,
causes extremely rapid decomposition. Stalkers rub their food across their
abdomens to pre-digest it, then absorb the nutrients through the slits in the
belly. If a live animal or person comes in contact with this fluid, the flesh
breaks out into horrible decaying blisters, which leave permanent scars,
assuming the individual survives. Stalkers are very fast with their hands, but
cannot travel swiftly.
The Tsor-Shota (TSOR
SHOW-TAH, singl. "Tsor Shotak") or "Giant Mountain Lizard", is a heavy, slow
moving lizard native to the mountains of
Northern Sarvonia. They primarily
can be found in the Imlith, Celeste and Prominent Mountain ranges. The lizard's
extremely tough and scaly hide is often used as armour by the reclusive
human tribe while the
lizard meat is often dried and stored for consumption during the tribe's
winter months. Despite the lizard's unsightly
appearance and dangerous bite, it is a shy animal and is rarely seen by
Wargs are dark
creatures that once served during the
War of the Chosen as messengers and steed for
orcs in the service of black mages. They have long received a bad reputation
and were slowly driven out of South Sarvonia
after the war. They appear to be just beasts of unjust creation or
magical experimentation and are viewed as the
creatures that obey all commands. They are not. This beast is a rather
intelligent creature and only follows the orders of others when the mood suits
it. Even though they served mostly as mounts and messengers, they still found a
share of battle and proved themselves able to think in difficult situations.
These fierce creatures are unlike other animals when fighting in packs or on
their own, their intelligence is slightly frightening. A main difference between
Wargs in the wild and ones brought up by orcs is
their ability to think on their own. Wargs raised by
orcs rely less on themselves for survival and more on their masters, so
their potential intelligence doesn't fully develop.
is an enormously huge, strange, and most immensly powerful beast. It can be
thought of as a dragon if you want, without the wings,
yet it makes up in intensity what is lost in the wings. Many times people report
foam fuming out of the mouth, and that they are rabid killing machines. This is
not to far from the truth. By no means are these monsters of beasts evil, yet
they carry out a manor which strictly states they are dominate.
