Alius Spicalx #964

General

Spicalx are shy, docile creatures rarely seen by humans despite their size. Their tough hides are made of rock, allowing them to camouflage in many environments if they stand still. All spicalx are herbivores, feeding on soft plants that grow near their preferred habitat. They have slow metabolisms and need to eat little for creatures their size, and can go for long periods without food or water. They can carry up to three people comfortably and haul tremendous loads, though they're uncommon pack animals. Their rarity in the wild and their leisurely pace tends to make more common horses or oxen preferred for long-distance transport, but spicalx are occasionally seen helping their human companions in rural towns near the creatures' native habitats. Although gentle most of the time, if threatened, spicalx can run surprisingly fast and make good use of their sharp horns.

Egg

This egg feels like it's made of stone, but you are unsure what kind. Its temperature and weight changes drastically each time you hold it.

Hatchling

A young spicalx is a rare thing to see in the wild, as they spend most of the day hiding. Their mothers watch over them, occasionally bringing them choice ferns and other favored plants from their forage. The youngsters are more active than the adults, quickly learning how to charge into anything nearby to make it wobble or collapse. They enjoy play-fighting with one another -- a harmless endeavor, as the juveniles lack the horns or size necessary to cause much damage. As they grow older and strike out on their own, though, the skills they've learned as juveniles become vital to their survival. There are only a few creatures that would think to eat a creature made of rock, but those few predators are wily and fierce.

Adult

There are several varieties of spicalx, all of them fairly rare and elusive. Colorful alius spicalx are the most mysterious of the group, shrouded in mystery and said by some to have originated in another world alongside our own. They are the only spicalx capable of magic, capable of growing and shrinking, changing the weight and texture of their stony bodies, heating themselves up, or making their skin icy cold to the touch. These abilities are limited to their own bodies, but a skilled alius spicalx can use these abilities effectively to navigate their environments or win a fight. They are said to be the most aggressive of the spicalx, but this claim gives the misconception that they are especially aggressive at all. Alius spicalx, like their relatives, would much rather ignore or avoid a confrontation if possible, but they are surprisingly quick to respond when legitimately threatened.
