Server Policy Updates, Announcements, & Changes
  • Wildegroll -- The wildegroll is a distant relative to the Wendigo. Much like their cousins, the wildegroll is a rare and dangerous creature that is rarely found in the northern forests and mountains of the frigid north, and are extremely dangerous. [x]
  • Tortora -- The tortoise itself is about as big as a giant tortoise and moves just as quickly. It likes to rest and pretend to be a fallen tree so it attracts more insects. It doesn’t eat the insects, but they keep the shell from becoming too big or too overgrown. [x]
  • Driftlings -- A Driftling is akin to an orchid when it sits still or lets itself be carried in the wind, and is a bright-coloured mantis when moving, and is about the same size if not smaller. It is light enough for it to be able to be carried great distances so long it unfolds its ‘petals’ that act as wings. [x]
