Known beasts of TerVarus

by Ildefonse

The following is a compilation of known creatures and beasts of TerVarus.

The Raknar

A spider like creature, slightly larger than a common human. Their natural habitats are underground hives, however, some of their kind have also adapted to live on the surface. Known hives exist under Blisterfoot Desert, the Sehdegere Steppes and Thornvine, the latter being the largest as known to mankind.

Although unthinkable now, before the year 7864 no one had ever seen or heard of the Raknar. After their first strike against the kingdom of Sandsun, they started their widespread attack against the rest of TerVarus. Although all three of their hives were eventually closed down, some Raknar can still be found roaming around the surface of TerVarus.

The Mawktopus

Not much is known about the Mawktopus, other than that they appear to like the heat and humidity of jungle areas and have been known to kill humans with a single blow.

The Hell hound

Although hell hounds were not a rare sight, in 5104 a never before seen massing of hundreds of beasts descended on the kingdom of Onara. Legend has it that the kingdom was saved by a stranger, who destroyed the hounds by merely pointing at the beasts with a stick-like object. 

Arrwic

Arrwic are leonid centauroids. From the waist down the Arrwic have the body of a lion, and from the waist up, a humanoid body with feline features.

Doppelgangers

Doppelgangers are shape-shifters who can assume the forms of other creatures or items, including other races, provided their size roughly matches that of the object/creature they're morphing into.

  • 3 to 7 "form" slots with each "form" having it's own reputation and Skill
  • Can mimic any player race or object with limits to the size of the race or object
  • Morphing will exert stamina; higher proficiency with a form will lower the exertion
  • Don't eat, but require more water than humans
  • Gain skill in a form by delivering the killing blow to the victim, then studying the corpse for a set amount of time. If successful in studying, and the victim has a higher skill level than the Doppelganger, then the Doppelganger will steal proficiency in that skill.
