The Orbrank is found only on the island of Kurn. Though it is quite small, its numerous antennae can detect signs of life from great distances away, allowing it to stay hidden from predators at all times. It also has extraordinarily advanced eyes that are too sensitive to take in direct sunlight, so it spends most of its life in the shadows of the Kurnian Mountains. It is believed by some that these creatures are omens of great misfortune.

Farian Toothwyrm

This particularly nasty carnivorous wyrm can be found in the sweltering bogs of central Faria. It's bite is extremely venomous and usually leads to an agonizing death within minutes. The temperament of a Toothwyrm depends on the amount of sunlight stored in a series of mushroom-like solar panels on its back. The longer a specimen basks in the sun, the more sluggish it becomes. Thus, when traveling in Toothwyrm country it is best to stay out of the shadows.

A survivor of the hottest desert in all of Cretus, this hearty herbivore can withstand temperatures upwards of 130˚. The ridges on its back act as solar panels, providing it with photosynthetic nutrients essential for its survival. In fact, sunlight is so important for these creatures that they often spend days on end basking in the sun, foraging for plants and water only on cooler days. Specimens from the outer boundaries of the desert are generally smaller due to less sunlight.

Horned wanderers of the planes, Coptus' are ever-migrating beasts that go where there is rain. Their formidable horns are used mainly in defense, though some support persists that they are also used to locate water, just as divining rods are used on Earth. The Coptus has a thick coat of luxuriantly soft fur which seems to be completely water-proof, and also provides them with unparalleled protection from the elements.
