This isn’t all the time the case nevertheless, and adventurers may as a substitute discover themselves tasked with an unseemly or troublesome quest by one among these highly effective mages or clergymen as they’re to be angled into working on the behest of one other.

Fowl Friction

There’s all the time an undercurrent of violence between the animalfolk of Veskrollo for as generations go the avians proliferate, their many eggs sprouting many youngsters that develop into troopers for an empire that’s practically toppling over from the burden of its civilization.

Cities in every single place are crammed with the works of inventive cranes, pleasure from vagabond playing pigeons, commerce pushed by enterprising vulture retailers, and posturing chickens galore. Dogfolk are frequent in each settlement seeking to shield others, loyal to their responsibility even when circumstances might sound to advantage doing in any other case. Out within the seas are pelican-sailed ships, and the wilderness is the realm of many a scouting hawk or studious owl. When push involves shove nevertheless all of the feathered people are able to throw down the instruments of their commerce to choose up swords within the identify of their shared flock, and with their immense numbers they’re unlikely to endure true defeat till they’ve inflicted it upon themselves.

Equine mercenaries use their swift hooves to journey from firm to firm looking for glory and gold, however the counterparts of the nobles are way more cautious; legal chameleons have been identified to steal fortunes from the established reptilians hoarding it. Additionally juxtaposed are lupine sellswords, generally hated for it often takes a whole squad of canine guards to take one of many lone champions down, and the heretical goats spreading fell beliefs among the many populace (often effectively sufficient to take root and convey to bear horrible forces in bids to upset the stability of energy).

This can be very taboo for animalfolk to eat of their very own variety (resembling a pig individual consuming a slice of bacon) and phrase quickly travels when somebody is discovered conducting such cannibalism. Ought to a PC be revealed to be a cannibal (or efficiently framed for the heinous act) they’re shunned for plenty of months equal to their Status score. Whereas shunned they’ve drawback on Status checks and Charisma checks that don’t use Intimidation.
