[New Monster] Harbinger Raven

Harbinger Raven

 

“Koram, do you think that you can wing that raven there with an arrow?” Gnybaro asked the fighting man.

“I suppose, why would I, though?” Koram responded.

“Well, I ran out of coins to pay him off, I think that he is going to find Stork and Vistis to sell us out,” the thief said.

Koram knocked an arrow, taking a moment to look over at Gnybaro. “Really, you need to start telling us about these things before they get out of hand.”

The arrow flew at the fleeing bird. For a moment it looked as if the creature was hit, but only a few feathers gently floated towards the ground. The bird croaked its laughter and escaped the adventurers, flying off into the nearby forest.

Some of the most insidious monsters hide in plain sight. The Harbinger Raven is one such creature. These large, very intelligent avians are consummate spies and dealers in truths and half-truths. Traveling as individuals or in small flocks, these ravens have a ready eye open for any bit of information or snippet of conversation that they can sell. If paid well, they will be loyal, if payments start to dwindle, the tables can easily turn on those dealing with these wily birds.

    I like them. 😀

    The Headings really fail a creature this subtle, and only your text did it justice. –There is no way to know the ‘intangibles’ from the Headings.

    Thank you, Timeshadows!
    I can only hope to lure in the curious to read more, like timid woodland creatures.
