Let's have a thread for mildly magical creatures. Not ones that are genuinely terrifying, more like pests which happen to have magical abilities. It's like the creature equivalent of the "mildly magical items" threads. So, let's get this thing rolling.

> Crack Spiders
Ever redecorated a house, and found that the walls were actually covered by hairline cracks in the plaster? Crackspiders. These little buggers leave tiny cracks wherever they go, scuttling along your walls leaving little irritating fractures in their wake. Given enough time and enough of an infestation, they could theoretically reduce a house to rubble. (Probably only affects inflexible materials: wood is probably safe)

>> No.33885962


> Ceiling Scratcher
That unidentified creature that sits in your ceiling and makes weird sawing noises; actually the mating cry of the Ceiling Scratcher cricket.

>> No.33886244


> Bear-Owl
Spawned from the same vein of research that created the better known owl bear, the bear owl is the logical opposite so far as bodily composition. A bear's head, tiny bear paws and the rest of it's body being that of an owl, they are occasionally found in the wild. However, being an incredibly defenseless and delicious species makes them vanishingly rare.

>> No.33886346


> Fey Wilds Lynx
Indistinguishable from most domestic species of tabby save for distinctive long ears, the fey wilds lynx is a favored pet of wizards and nobles alike, being highly intelligent and easy to train. They are very long lived, and tend to become smarter as they age, with some rumors persisting that they eventually will gain true intelligence whether a familiar or no.

>> No.33886389


> Sovereign Ooze
Not a king of oozes, but rather an ooze whose body is made of sovereign glue, this is occasionally made during young apprentice's first experiments with alchemy. Unfortunately, the beings have no natural way to replenish their own bodily substance as they inevitably cover everything they touch with it. Still, with care and a universal solvent coated jar, some specimens have been known to live for very long periods of time.

>> No.33886441

>Cricket Bat

A horrific blight upon sentient races everywhere created solely for the pun, the Cricket Bat is a large one foot insectoid creature with leathery wings as well as it's usual appendages, with it's powerful legs it can gain incredible heights in a single bound and then use whereupon it uses it's wings to glide and it's bat ears to navigate via echolocation.

Luckily they have a strictly vegetarian diet, but swarms of Cricket bats have been known to strip whole countrysides clean in a single night.
Plus they just look nasty.

> Fey Wilds Songbird
Like a more majestic cousin of the cockatoo, these birds' white plumage becomes a rainbow of thrumming colors as they sing, making them much sought after by exotic bird collectors. However, these birds then to be difficult to handle, being picky eaters, temperamental, and hard to groom.

>> No.33886458

>Nightmare Devourer
Despite this creature's name and imposing demonesque image, it's actually benevolent. The creature hides during the day in the shadow and comes out at night to eat the nightmares of people and as a result people's dreams become ordinary dreams. Cases where people have woken up and seen the creature are rare as it takes great care to hide should it detect the sleeper waking up. The reason for this is that the Nightmare Devourer greatly fears accidentally scaring someone. In fact, this fear is so strong scaring someone may cause the creature to enter a state of shock or even die.

>> No.33886489


> Fey Wilds Songbird
The more majestic cousin of the cockatoo, the Fey Wilds Songbird is also known as the Wisp Parrot. This is because the creature's white plumage becomes a dazzling rainbow of soft colors as they sing, a dazzling display in its own right as their voices are supernaturally beautiful. They are much sought after by exotic bird collectors, but equally difficult to care for in captivity. They have very specific dietary needs and tend to be highly temperamental.

>> No.33886494


Small solitary ferret-like rodents with a strong scent for magics and enchantments, they are often found gnawing on enchanted locations and the catalysts that sustain them. They don't seem to gain any nourishment from the practice and feed mostly on small plants and fungi, but scholars believe the practice comes from having long tracked and fed on magical plants.

>> No.33886565

>Corpse Frogs
A large frog that smells of putridity and rotting flesh. They draw flies and other insects to their strange scent and feast on them. Since they do very little active hunting they grow quite corpulent, sometimes becoming unable to move if they find particularly good areas to feed in. Not dangerous and actually reduce the presence of other pests, but their smell is so strong and repugnant that most prefer then to be eradicated whenever possible.

>> No.33886629

>Fangorn's Rat
Named for the naturalist who first documented them, the Fangorn's Rat is understood to be a subspecies of the common Black Rat, exposed to high fluctuations of mana from an as yet unknown source and physically mutated into their current form. Smaller than the Black Rat, they are recognizable by the tuft of white fur running from behind the ears to the shoulders, and a bifurcation of the tail near the tip. They appear to subsist entirely on various forms of cloth or linen, and have a special preference for socks. Many a citizen can attest to having one in a pair of socks mysteriously disappear, to later be found inside the rat's gullet. Extermination measures have been suggested.

>> No.33886641

>Eternal Worm
A common ordinary soil worm that's entirely unremarkable, except for the fact that it's immortal. Not just biologically immortal, but physically as well. No matter what force, weapon, magic or ability is used the worm simply cannot die. Even if its body is reduced to ash, the ash will reconstitute into the original worm. Scholars are greatly interested in studying the species' immortality and because of this combined with the worm's rarity, specimens command outrageous prices. Though the worm is androdioecious reproduction has never been occured to happen even under laboratory conditions. Scholars assume it's because the worm has a very slow reproduction cycle (possibly once every thousand years).

> Armament Hog
The more magical cousin of the hedgehog, this small rodent shares its habit of forming into a defensive curl when threatened. However, rather than spurs made of cartilage, the very body of the armament hog changes into a steel-like substance, sometimes with spikes depending on species. Sometimes traveling nights will mistake them for a defunct piece of weaponry and try to get them "repaired" at a local smithy, much to everyone's embarrassment and bewilderment.

>> No.33886695


> Armament Hog
The more magical cousin of the hedgehog, this small rodent shares the habit of curling into a ball when threatened. However, rather than spurs made of cartilage, the very body of the armament hog changes into a steel-like substance, making it all but immune to conventional predators. The end form usually resembles the head of a mace, with spikes depending on species. Sometimes traveling knights will mistake a frightened armament hog for a defunct piece of weaponry and try to get them "repaired" at a local smithy. Hilarity usually ensues.

>> No.33886714


>Citronella Goat

A yellow-haired goat that smells strongly of citrus. The result of a magical crossbreeding experiment to create livestock that naturally drives away pests. It's very effective at this, but the revolting flavor of its meat and milk, and the obtuse smell of its fur, caused it to be considered a failure. Only the wild offspring of several escaped specimens remain.

>> No.33886762

A type of symbiotic species of giant fungus that grows to resemble a small shack on the inside. It feeds off of the various dander, dust and organic leavings left behind, and provide travelers with a comfy, if a little creepy, getaway for the night.

Also comes in poisonous varieties with darker brown caps, which fill the rooms with toxic spores and then absorb the inhabitants.

>> No.33886813

>Narcissus of Self-Image
A magical species of Narcissus plant that grows on people's heads and subsists on the person's ambient magical energy. The species is not parasitic and entirely harmless. It can only be seen by the person it's growing on (usually in a mirror), but not by other people. Also, it cannot be removed by the person it's growing on (trying to remove it in any way results in the plant remaining in place). The only way it can be removed is by convincing another person to pluck it, but as other people can't see it this is easily said than done.

>> No.33886852


Small insects that inhabit trees and wooden structures that aren't taken care of. By themselves they glow faintly, like a candle, but adventurers have taken to raising them in special wooden spheres as a cheap and effective way of having a source of light at night.
But they'll still eat any wooden items you have.

>> No.33886875


> Walking Pits
A walking pit is a magical creature close in appearance to a frog crossed with a bulldog. These bizarre creatures naturally produce a dimensional storage pocket inside of their gullet similar to a bag of holding or a portable hole. Never content to sit on an empty stomach, these creatures eat anything they can get their mouth around, seemingly showing no preference between traditionally edible or inedible matter.

>Benthic Shark
An offshoot of the Tiger Shark, this species has, over the course of several millennia, adapted to living in some of the deepest parts of the ocean. In such terrain, they have been altered by the faint echoes of eldritch power residing below even them. Their form is flattened, stretched wider and longer. The eyes now reside on top of the head, made bulbous and opaque to catch the faintest glimmers of light to be found on the sea floor. Though slender, their jaws have immense snapping power, suggesting that other species of their size must exist in the depths of the ocean, for they are inefficient at catching smaller meals. The knowledge of Benthic Sharks comes entirely from three specimens that had washed up on the shore, apparently having floated to the surface rather than sunk to the floor. When examined, notes recounting them turned into mad scribbles and visual recordings were marred by static interference, suggesting they had developed through contact with some eldritch power an anomalous aura. Only once the bodies were returned to the sea to float down to the bottom once more were notes able to be recorded.

Grown along the equator, these small plants can serve as a rudimentary compass, as whichever petal is facing north will become darker. They have a slightly metallic gleam to them, and cannot handle any sort of cold for too long.

>> No.33887105


> Painter's Chameleon
Whether it was created by magic or nature, this species of chameleon is truly bizarre. When perfectly calm, the creature produces a continuous wake of color as it plods along. This color remains indefinitely and changes with the lizard itself, no matter how far it may have gone since leaving the trail. However, if frightened or killed, the color disappears, making them a creative, if possibly easily disrupted method of marking one's path.

> Ash Moth
This rather hideous moth shares certain similarities to the legendary phoenix. Seemingly covered in lumpy ash, this moth is known to travel miles after maturity seeking out sources of open flame. Once found, these creatures throw themselves into the fire, experiencing a brilliant transformation whereupon they are more pleasantly called Flame Butterflies. Their smoldering form is beautiful to behold but lasts little more than a few hours before they produce their eggs and die.

> Mandolin Spider
This is actually one of a rather vast species of musical spiders that have evolved a niche as entertainers for the intelligent species. Unlike normal spider webs, these creatures use a stiffly bound, high tension webbing which they pluck to elicit musical notes. How this adaptation originally came about is a question, but natural selection has ensured that most individuals that survive are excellent performers. While cultivating a large array of musical spiders in one location would seem a good idea and can have wonderful results, too often their artistic differences seem to force neighboring species into quite vicious competition.

This tiny frog has an innaturally potent voice, which uses both for hunting and self defense.

This creature is much the same as a normal tick, but rather than siphoning blood, it siphons emotion from living creatures.

In fact, there are many parents who go looking for these "parasites" to help them deal with their teenage progeny.

Dust Bunny

Typically found in ill kept magical institutions, Dust bunnies are clumps of dust given life and proper form by ambient magical energies. Apart from being a symbol of poor housekeeping, Dust bunnies help keep their homes clean, by absorbing any future dust created. Their appearance depends on the magical energy surrounding them, exemplified in the necromancer's dust bunnies, which are shambling horrors of the dust of undead flesh.

Name: Bee Burner (Northern, Southern, Greater, Ricker's)
Other Names: Little Firebird, Apiarist's Bane, Drakesparrow
Classification: Animal
Diet: Insectivorous, mostly bees
Size: Rarely more than half a foot in wingspan with the largest species.
Locomotion: Rapid flight, bipedal
Presence: Common
Location: Common near rivers, mostly found in areas with high insect density
Sociality: Fairly non-social
Intelligence: Moderate
Mating Habits: Egg-laying, mate for life

Description: Small, fast and colourful, Bee Burners are beautiful little birds possessed of quite astonishing hunting abilities. Most species are reddish orange, with green streaks around the eyes and on the tips of the wings and black markings under the beak. The Northern Bee Burner can be distinguished by a tuft of blue feathers at the back of the head, the Southern by a pair of purple tailfeathers, the Greater both by its size and its entirely black underbelly, and the Ricker's by an iridescent green ruff around the neck. The beaks are long, slightly curved and pointed - all the better for catching insects on the wing. Their heads are large for a bird, whilst their wings are comparatively small, designed for aerial manoeuvring rather than long distance flight. Bee Burners are non-migratory, and spend colder months dwelling in holes in trees or river banks. They hoard food in warmer months for this purpose.

Capabilities: Bee Burners possess two glands in the throat that spit out liquids that ignite when they mix. The streams of liquid make contact just outside of the Bee Burner's mouth and form into a beam of fire that is more than capable of killing any small unfortunate insect that gets in its way. It also makes an effective defence against predators, as even when consumed the liquids will ignite if mixed, quite literally giving many successful predators serious heartburn. They are also fast and acrobatic fliers.

>> No.33893183

Vulnerabilities: As small birds they are particularly fragile, and are attracted to insects and things that look like them, such as reflective pieces of glass.

Uses: The glands are particularly sought after by alchemists for use in potions and as an easy ignition formula. Richer people also like to use the feathers of these birds in ornamentations and clothing such as cloaks. Given the size of the average Bee Burner, a lot are needed for such endeavours, often depopulating whole sections of the countryside to create a single cape.

>Melody Spider
A species thought to be a bizarre offshoot of the Mandolin Spider, each Melody Spider spins a web unique to that individual, and never to be repeated by any other. The web itself is similar to that of the common spider, but vastly more complex in nature, and created from the same high tension webbing which gives the Mandolin Spider it's namesake music. These webs have a nodule on the centre, which can be plucked to cause a chain reaction of notes, creating an ephemeral symphony, generally extremely well composed and very pleasing to the ears, and lasting anywhere from 15 to 20 seconds. Unfortunately, once played, a web loses it's structural integrity and can no longer produce any music.

The Melody Spider has no mouthparts, and will quickly expire within two weeks of hatching due to starvation, and taking with it the symphony it created. Attempts to keep them alive in labs via IV nutrition have been inconclusive.

Luminescent flying insects that lay their eggs in dead flesh, giving their larvae ample food supply when they hatch. Candleflies and their larvae produce a small amount of necromantic energy, not enough to raise anything on their own but well-known to reanimate a corpse in a colony given enough time to fully develop.
The mature flies do not usually stray far from the host corpse, instead breeding in and consuming its rotting flesh until the undead kills another or strays across another corpse whereupon the mature flies will migrate and form a new colony.
Cultures in the regions Candleflies are found consider it especially important to bury or incinerate their dead, as large-scale infestations can quickly lead to undead uprisings, blights upon the land and even attract liches and necromancers.

>Horseshoe Crabs

These small, land-borne crabs grow to roughly the size of a horseshoe and curve into a similar shape. They feed on rust, and often live near large deposits of iron. Unlike the related Rust Monster, these creatures have no magical ability to destroy metal, the only consume ferrous oxide.

These large, fluffy moth-like creatures can grow to the size of a large cat. If raised from birth to be used to company, they make loyal and affectionate pets, feeding primarily on nectar, fruit, and attention.

>Writer's Block
Also known as the Scintilla Flower or Library Anenome, these anemone-like organisms proliferate anywhere were there are books, magic, and scholars. When there is nobody around, these creatures waft their tendrils lazily, feeding on stray ideas and concepts that drift out of magical books from time to time. However, in the presence of an intelligent being, the Writer's Block feeds on their inspiration and willingness to learn, causing the condition that gives them their name. They are considered an awful nuisance by most, but their sting is appreciated by some for being both a stimulant and a source of sudden, sporadic inspiration.

Resembling nothing so much as a fleshy ball roughly a third of the size of a common chicken, with short, bristly, almost hair-like feathers in a dull earthy hue, beady black eyes, and a narrow, elongated beak, the Dorb is nonetheless capable of locomotion, by way of a yet-indeterminate method of levitation, although it seems incapable of lifting itself off the ground by more than half the height of a man.

They are quite fond of fruit, and it's not terribly uncommon for vinyard or orchard owners to occasionally discover a small group of them feeding on one's crops. Fortunately, due to their size, it is rare for them to consume enough to be much more than a mild annoyance.

It is particularly amusing to discover some that have fed upon fruit that has begun to rot, as the alcoholic content of the fermenting sugars in the fruit affect them, causing them to wobble erratically and float into various objects and each other with cries of surprise and confusion.

> Supineness

A reptilian creature about the size of a small dog with four long, loosely hanging legs and a short stubby tail that crawls around very slowly among trees feeding on various insects with the one quick part of its body that it has, it's quickly flicking sticky tounge. The Supineness has a head similar in shape to that of an ant-eater, and is covered in small green or brown scales that camouflage it well among it's native jungle foliage.

It has amazing regenerative powers as long as it is well fed, but is virtually without any form of physical defense against predators. Interestingly, most natural jungle predators capable of piercing the somewhat tough scales have evolved to learn it is best to simply chomp off one of its legs when hungry, and let the creature regenerate the lost limb, only to return and feed on it again once it has grown back.

The Supineness' diet of poisonous and venomous insects other insectivores wouldn't touch render it virtually immune to all forms of poison. Even poisons of a magical and/or divine nature have often had a vastly diminished or negligible effect on the creature. Supineness blood is usually quite toxic, but blood extracted directly from the creatures liver with great care can be used to purify food and water with just a single drop. A single drop, with sufficient knowledge, can also be used to create a potion that grants the effect of cure poison on the imbiber. The potions creator must have extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the creature to be able to extract the blood from the proper organ, as a mistake will instead have a mildly toxic effect, as well as possibly killing the creature if the liver is too damaged in the process of extraction. Enough blood can be extracted to attempt to create one potion per day without permanently harming the creature, and up to three potions can be created by sacrificing the liver of the beast completely, but the creature will die within minutes.

The Bore

A small, dumpy relative of the wild boar. Unlike it's more territorial and violent cousin, this animal is docile and prefers a quiet simple life. If kept in one place, life within a square mile of the Bore will become routine and uneventful. Orcish hoards will randomly avoid the town, necromancers will find the town unimportant, and in general, nothing exciting will happen.

An unusual form of parasitic moss, this species hangs from trees over well trod paths, brushing over any animals of adequate height that pass beneath, on which it deposits its spores. Over the course of 12-30 days, the host shrinks as the spores mature, using the absorbed matter to grow into its adolescent phase, tendrils that drop from the host and creep up nearby trees.

The host will lose ~50-75% of its mass during the infestation, but the mass is lost in a uniform manner: afterward, the creature will appear as a perfectly healthy but bizarrely small specimen of its species.

Usually found floating amongst canopies in magical forests, the Tree Jelly is the only known terrestrial siphonophore, feeding off any small insects, birds or mammals caught in its dangling vines, which can reach up to 140 feet in length.
Any food caught is digested and fed back to the bell at the top, which uses the produced digestive gasses to float.
Stings from the vines of these creatures may be painful but are rarely deadly, due to the need to spread Tree jelly spores via any sufficiently large animals the vines may brush past.

Tree Jellys have also found use in more metropolitian areas to combat rock doves and other disease carrying avians.

Frost beetles must hibernate in a warm place during winter, or the mold and beetle will die from lack of heat to feed on.

>A CASSOWARY attacked and injured four policemen including two junior officers after the "flightless bird" escaped from Zamboanga City aviary on Tuesday, officials said.

>The victims, two of whom were identified as Insp. Crisanto Yabo and Insp. Nicanor Bautista, are undergoing schooling at the PNP-RTS.

>The cassowary is a very large flightless bird native to the tropical forests of New Guinea and the nearby islands and northeastern Australia.

>The cassowary is the third tallest and second heaviest living bird, smaller only than the ostrich and the emu.

>The bird had escaped from the City Government's aviary, which is located a few hundred meters away from the PNP-RTS.

>Lightningrod Pine

This tall, spindly tree is often found near mines and at high altitude. The tree accumulates metal (especially copper) in its wood, and especially the sap. Although the poisonous effect of the wood from the metal concentration and toxic resin prevents most predators, some insects (verdegris beetles and miner's cap fungus are a particular threat) still feed on it.

The most unusual feature of the Lightningrod Pine, however, is the one that gives it its name. The sap and resin make up a form of natural liquid battery or capacitor with incredible energy and power density. The tree naturally accumulates a small charge from Earth currents via the roots and the small potential difference between the ground and it's tall crown. Predators that brush the glittering needles find themselves warned off by a spark as the tree discharges.

When the tall tree is struck by lightning, however, much of the sap stored up over the spring and fall is overcharged and rapidly discharges, letting loose all of its stored energy in an explosion. If one is lucky enough to witness a strike in a stand of Lightningrod Pines, you may see a whole series of chained arcs as the discharged energy jumps to another tree, which overloads in turn. The explosion sends shards of wood far and wide - as well as seedlings, which are dispersed to the wind.

The burned-out stump that remains holds a stock of the remaining resin that didn't cook off, now fully charged. The tree will use this sizable store of energy to quickly grow again in the coming spring.

The tapped sap and hardened resin from the tree are commonly used as power sources - the substance, when fully charged has a energy storage density comparable to gasoline - explosives, and weapon components for electrical technology in the dwarf mountains the pines grow on, where burning coal would foul the air underground with smoke and blackdamp.

>Spark Bugs (aka: Thunder Beetles)
Related to the common stink bug, spark bugs do not release a foul stench when in danger. Instead, they release a powerful electric shock, which can temporarily stun an attacker or even kill them. While not lethal to any predator larger than a spider, the shock is extremely unpleasant. As such, few creatures prey upon spark bugs.
(Picture not to scale)

>Keravnix (aka: Electric Phoenix, Shockbird)
Related to the true Phoenix, the Keravnix is smaller than it's fiery relative. They commonly release small but focused discharges of lightning against smaller birds in order to stun them before ripping them apart with their claws. The Keravnix is one of the few natural predators of spark bugs, which they enjoy as a treat. Unlike the common Phoenix, the Keravnix is only truly immortal during a thunderstorm. While inside a such a storm, any Keravnix that would be killed is instantly struck by lightning, and is reborn as a young Keravnix. A Keravnix killed outside of a thunderstorm may be revived by one, provided the storm rolls in within a day of the Keravnix's death. Sufficiently powerful magical lightning has also been successfully used to revive a Keravnix. Due to their natural intelligence and affinity for lightning, many storm mages have a Keravnix as their familiar.

The Moon Crickets.

A druid enchanted a forest's worth of crickets to have biting intellects and wisdom, and a pathological need to put down and tease people who walk through the forest, antagonizing them with the voices of an entire theater full of black people.

Travelers are treated to a Night at the Apollo, every time they try to go through the forest for the night. There's nothing physically threatening in the forest, just the spiteful laughter of thousands of insects and dozens of smartass anonymous crickets.

A few weak willed individuals have taken their own lives after a night of sustaining such ribbing, put down and heckling.

Largely considered to be a rare mountain dwelling variety of chromatic dragon, the Tartan Dragon is largely considered a rare menace to all concerned.

A living ball of ornery and hate, Tartan Dragons like nothing more than rampaging about large towns and villages and despises royalty of all kind for reasons never properly discovered.
Luckily they have one great weakness a fondness for strong alcohol of all kinds. Indeed, a Tartan Dragons horde consists of rare spirits and empty bottles more than anything else.
Despite their fondness for it, Tartan Dragons are curiously weak to the effects of alcohol, and the best way to deal with such a beast is to ply it first with strong paint-stripper before attacking.
Their breath weapon seems to use ignited alcohol as it's primary component, which makes it relatively weak compared to other dragons breath attacks, however it does allow the dragon to replenish the number of times it can use it's breath weapon per day simply by drinking further.

>Zinc Dragons

A rare, thought extinct species of metallic dragon. Zinc Dragons are beleived to be the prgenitors of the Brass Dragon along with Copper Dragons. Zinc Dragons are garrellous to the extreme, and always on the lookout for new gossip or some rare literary work.

Largely singular by nature, Zinc dragons will make their lairs in isolated spots so that they can read from their library horde in peace. Creatures of habit, they tend to roam the surround areas of habitation in changed form, looking for news and gossip in a regular pattern.
Their breath weapon is a realtively impressive example of firebreath for a Dragon, especially considering that they are smaller than most metallic dragons.

Whilst their total extinction is still in doubt, their solitary nature DID lead to very low birth rates amongst Zinc Dragons, even by Dragon standards, and it would not be unthinkable that over the years unscrupulous scholars, warlocks and mages seeking fabled Zinc Dragon Library Hordes could have rended the entire subspecies extinct.

Skirting between the border of adorable and squicky, all a snuggle-worm wants is to... well... snuggle. They are not picky eaters and require very little energy to survive, so they spend most of their time seeking the warmest and softest place to sleep. They resemble a large, two-foot long caterpillar, are covered in soft white fluff, and have six, small black eyes (usually barely visible due to their fluff). They are completely harmless and about as intelligent as a dog or cat, and make a pleasant cooing sound when stroked. As such, many keep them as pets.

However, those who are not fond of insects may find them to be deeply unpleasant to be around. Whilst rarely found in the wild, feral populations of snuggle-worms do exist; They will often chew through the insulation of a home and curl up with the unsuspecting owners in their sleep.

However, upon eruption they spread spores that grow into new thunder spuds. Left unchecked, a hillside can be turned into an extremely volatile minefield. Farming them is notoriously difficult, as they tend to chain react, blowing up an entire crop in mere seconds.
