Creature #1139 - Ratumbidae - Stream

Postby Todesschwinge » July 6th, 2020, 12:13:12 am

Didn't see a thread yet. Recolor of the recent Donis?

Egg:

This egg has a rope-like tail.

Hatchling: (no dimorphism)

Ratumbidae do not spend much time as hatchlings, as these creatures grow fast. They spend much of their time scavenging for food, and can and will eat nearly anything. With their sharp senses of smell, it is nearly impossible to keep food from a ratumbidae. However, they remember those who give them food freely, and will repay favors later in life with loyalty and sometimes even magical valuables that they find as they scurry or fly about.

Adult: (no dimorphism)

For a long time, ratumbidae were overlooked at the Keep. Incredibly common and seemingly bereft of magic, they were viewed as a nuisance. Their ever-growing numbers, however, encouraged some researchers to study them. The discovery was made that they were surprisingly intelligent, with an excellent sense of direction. Even better, they have an innate sense of magic. They can sense and locate magic, whether it be other magical creatures, individuals with magic, or even magical artifacts. Once this was figured out, they became highly sought after. Once trained, they can seek out long-forgotten magical treasures, or be used to locate potential students for the Keep.

General:
One of the most common and hardy creatures in the world is the ratumbidae. While not particularly appealing to look at, they are respected for their intelligence and their ability to thrive anywhere in the world. They range everywhere, from the coldest reaches of Arkene to the tropical islands of Callisto. They can lay dozens of eggs at a time, and hatchlings grow fast. While they have many natural predators, their prolific breeding means that once they have staked out a place to call home, it is incredibly difficult to get rid of them. Many people see them as pests, or at best, tolerate their presence as they flit overhead or merely scurry, too lazy to fly. Those who take the time, however, can train them to do numerous useful tasks, as they have a keen intellect and the hardiness to complete errands others creatures can't.

Got one, can't wait to see when it hatches. I hope it's a recolor because those were pretty.

Yes, I like the more natural look, rather than the vivid color version.
