Scrystone - A magical grey orb fashioned out of black and white
hemispheres. This sphere grants visions of things yet to be to
those who are gifted enough to understand them.
Sea Lion - The sea lion is a deadly creature known to inhabit the Sea of
Sea of Mithicus - This sea is known to be a great place to scuba
dive, but at your own risk. The sea lions in the area can be
Sea Serpents - Sea serpents are a rare breed of dangerous aquatic predators.
It is known that the
Wizard of Frobozz
actually kept a baby sea serpent as a pet.
The Shadowland, also known as the Land of Shadows, is a barren
area of rolling hills, south of Flatheadia and deep underground.
It lies near the point where the Great Sea's eastern shore dips
underground, and has frequent patches of quicksand as a result.
Giant Slugs - Giant slugs are essentially immense versions of the tiny garden
slugs we all know and love. One giant slug encountered in the
ruins of a lighthouse near Grubbo-by-the-Sea was as long as a
human is tall. These slugs defend themselves by spraying their
attacker with vile ichors.
Snarfem, a two-player game of removing pebbles, originated in
Mithicus and comes from an ancient Mithican word meaning "to
collect pebbles or small stones." The purpose of snarfem is to
remove the correct amount of pebbles during each turn that will
force the opponent to take the last pebble.
Sneffle was a member of the Guild of Bakers in 966. He gave a
speech to the Final Conclave of enchanters detailing the failure
of the GLOTH spell. Sneffle, dependent on magic, was overwhelmed
by the prospect of a world where the pastries have to be handmade.
Snow Wight - A snow wight is a vicious monster that hides in snowdrifts waiting for a victim. Armed with long, sharp teeth and claws, a wight
is quite a menace, and any poorly-equipped adventurer is advised
to stay away from one. The only recent snow wight sightings have
been in the southern mountains near Thriff.
Spenseweed - There has been much controversy about the true nature
of this plant. "The Lore and Legends of Quendor" has this to say:
"The healing virtues of this common roadside plant are well
documented. Although it is safe to eat, spenseweed is most
effective when applied directly to wounds as a salve."
This publication also advises us to "avoid the cheap commercial
preparations, which may contain artificial coloring and preservatives." A plant matching this description has been found in the
Westlands, growing among the ruins of Pheebor, and near the village of Grubbo-by-the-Sea.
However, early editions of the
call spenseweed "a deep-rooting underwater plant." Once established,
it can usually only be removed by using certain spells of wilting. The 883 GUE edition of this publication stated that the
misconception of spenseweed as a roadside weed is grossly inaccurate. Spenseweed of the underwater variety has been seen
flourishing in the western edge of the Great Sea, and in a fish
tank in Flatheadia. The truth about spenseweed is not yet known,
although it is suspected that the underwater spenseweed might
simply be another name for the morgia plant.
Giant Spiders - Giant spiders are dangerous creatures sometimes found in abandoned buildings. They are identical to their smaller cousins in
every respect except for their tendency to feed on careless peasants.
The Stonewall was the sight of the Battle of The Stonewall in 747
GUE. According to military historians, The Stonewall was a strategically vital locale, commanding the two most important caverns
of the Eastlands.
T.J. "Stonewall" Flathead earned his nickname
and his reputation at the Battle of The Stonewall. When reports
arrived that rebellious natives had captured The Stonewall, T.J.
and his garrison were assigned the mission of retaking it. After
a battle lasting seven weeks, during which T.J.'s men suffered a
casualty rate of nearly 75%, the garrison stormed The Stonewall.
Once in command of it, they discovered that the reports had
been erroneous: The Stonewall was completely undefended, and the
supposedly rebellious natives were actually all vacationing in
the Gray Mountains. Nevertheless, T.J. Flathead's tactics and
strategies during the "battle" were considered brilliant, and he
would henceforth be known as Stonewall Flathead.
Surmin - From their malodorous breath to their lice-ridden fur,
surmins are utterly repulsive creatures. If they get close
enough, they can bore their victims to death by reciting Greater
Borphee County Penal Codes.
