Snopal #1066


While looking through the historical texts in the Library, you stumble upon an image of ancient magi engaged in what appears to be a snowball fight. The caption reads: "Winter of the Year of the Disappeared Manticore: The Great Battale of the Snow-balles. In the early hours of the morn of the fifteenth day since the Wolf's Moon, a mighty snow did falle upon the grounds of the castle Keep which the moppets did run to-ward when a-woken from their slumber. There reaching, they began to pack the snow to-gether, which then they did round into spheres hand-sized and throweable. The moppets did throwe their snow-balles at each other with ferocitie. Within an hour, all combatants cold from the snow, the teams did order a truce to retreat inside to warm themselves with cups of heated milk and co-coa. One child, seeking to pull a frolic upon the others, did hyde behind a garden walle and did make snow-balles to throwe at his colleagues. Reaching for a snow-balle, he instead did grabe a smale snowy creature that did squeak, thus alerting his fellowes to his shenanigans. Thus, also, was he nibbled."


It's a snowball. You've checked several times, there's nothing magical about this one.


Snopals are not hatched, but rather created -- by Silvan otters! In the winter, the otters love to play in the snow, shaping it to make wintry companions. While most of these companions are simple snowmen and snow-otters no more magical than any, occasionally they will come to life to keep the otters company. These creatures, affectionately called snopals by the magi, are companions not to magi, but to the otters. They are friendly to all, though, and as long as they stay cool, they are happy to explore the Keep and its grounds.


An adult snopal is not much larger than a newly-made one, though they do seem to get larger at random. Most magi assume this to be the otters' doing, as the otters are constantly fiddling with their art projects, trying to make them perfect. No one is quite sure whether the snopals are supposed to be otters themselves or simply some creature the otter has seen wandering around the Keep. They're affectionate and loving either way, especially to their otter companions.
