Birds

This section basically consists of monsters that can fly.  Most of them have a quite high Air score.  This does not always denote cunning or intelligence, but generally their abilities at manoeuvring in the air.

Achiyalatopa                This bird is protected with feathers made of flint.  They are as sharp as knives and it uses them to hunt.  It is

                                    extremely strong to counter the weight of it's stone feathers.

                                    Fire:    5        Earth:    4        Water:    2        Air:    4        Powers: Can fly, stone armour, razor sharp wings

 

Boobrie                        This is an unusual bird in that it is made entirely of water.  This aids it when it fishes to go under the water

                                    invisible to it's prey.  However it does mean it must hide when it is hot.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    2        Water:    4        Air:    4        Powers: Can fly, made of water

 

Firebird                        This bird is sometimes mistaken for a phoenix, but they are very different.  It's plumage is a brilliant silver and

                                    gold and it's whole body sparkles.  It glows brightly in the dark, indeed just a single feather can light up a dark

                                    room.  However it's two most prized attributes are that facts that it's song can heal the sick and when it sings

                                    pearls fall from it's beak.

                                    Fire:    2        Earth:    2        Water:    4        Air:    4        Powers: Can fly, healing song, glows, create pearls.

 

Gagana                         It's a miracle that the Gagana can fly since it has an iron beak and copper claws.  It uses these to crack open

                                    tortoise shells, easily getting to the meat inside.  They are just as useful in cracking skulls, so one should be

                                    careful around these creatures.

                                    Fire:    2        Earth:    4        Water:    2        Air:    3        Powers: Can fly, iron beak, copper claws

 

Harpies                        Despite appearances a Harpy is far more bird than man.  A creature with the head and breasts of a woman, and

                                    the body of a bird, they hunt in packs, scratching mercilessly with their claws, until they can rip open their prey

                                    and consume their innards.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    3        Water:    2        Air:    1        Powers: Can fly

 

Hippogriff                     This strange beast is half horse and half griffin.  They are used as mounts by the brave, and if tamed properly

                                    make a fearsome steed.

Pegasus                        A winged horse, they have long been associated with the noble.  A Pegasus will chose it's own rider, throwing

                                    the unworthy off at great height.

                                    Fire:    7        Earth:    6        Water:    6        Air:    7        Powers: Can fly

 

Peryton                        In many ways similar to a Pegasus, this is basically a dark green deer with wings.  Strangely they cast the

                                    shadow of a man, which confuses many, who see a mans shadow coming towards them quickly with no man

                                    to cast it.

                                    Fire:    6        Earth:    4        Water:    5        Air:    6        Powers: Can fly, man's shadow

 

Roc                              A gigantic slightly misshapen bird.  It feeds on elephants which it picks up in itís claws while aloft.

                                    Fire:    7        Earth:    8        Water:    2        Air:    3        Powers: Can fly

 

Simurgh                        This strange bird appears to be a kind of peacock with the head of a dog and the claws of a lion.  It tends to

                                    live in places near water.  It is a vicious killer, if given a chance.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    2        Water:    2        Air:    4        Powers: Can fly

Sphinx                          The Sphinx is a lion with the head of a human, sometimes with wings.  They are known to set riddles.  Some

                                    types of sphinx have serpent tails.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    4        Water:    2        Air:    5        Powers: Can fly (if has wings), Tongue

 

Stymphalian Birds        These monstrous man-eating birds have bronze beaks, wings and claws.  They can tear through armour, but

                                    prefer to attack less well defended prey.

                                    Fire:    3        Earth:    3        Water:    2        Air:    2        Powers: Can fly, sharp bronze wings claws and

                                                                                                                                    beak

 

Thunder Bird                Gigantic eagle like bird whose wing beat sounds like thunder.  They seems to be a smaller version of the Roc,

                                    though far more majestic looking.  They mainly eats snakes, and are intelligent and generally helpful to humans.

                                    Fire:    6        Earth:    5        Water:    4        Air:    5        Powers: Can fly, Tongue.
