This tough leathery egg is covered in a diamond-like pattern.

In the midst of the magewars, a legend appears that tells of stray magic wandering into a vast western swamp, turning native creatures grotesque and leeching into the soil to cause chaos. The most colorful retelling of this legend specifies that the small rat-like creatures in the swamp merged with local snakes to produce a new animal borne of corrupt magic. A similar story told by the people of Taggelisk has a lighter tone: once, mongooses were brought to Ageti to rid the city of snakes, but instead of killing them, the mongooses became enamored of the local snakes, and thus the nicori were produced. Whatever the truth may be, these peculiar creatures have intrigued travelers for generations. They have a fierce reputation and are well-revered for creatures of their size. While many parts of a nicori may be used for potions – the venom, rattle, sloughs, and fur all have magical properties – less familiar to foreigners is their value in controlling rodent pests. Despite their potent venom, adult nicori seldom bite humans, and with quick remedies sold in most markets, few in Taggelisk consider domestic nicori dangerous. Feral nicori are another matter entirely, though, and it is good advice to give the creatures a wide berth when encountered in the wild.
