[New Monster] Birds of Peace

Birds of Peace

 

The king of Goli-Zo sent bounty hunters, mercenaries and other rascals to the four ends of the land to find a Bird of Peace before the Conjunction of Kings, which would bring many leaders, both mighty and mousey together. The king of Goli-Zo figured that the unearthly song of these strange birds would cause such calm that at least his skin would be saved from any possible assassination attempts or other skullduggery. Time after time the seekers failed until a small group of monks of the Goddess of Placidity brought four of the much sought after birds before the king.

“How did you succeed when so many failed?” asked the king of Goli-Zo.

“Quite easily,” one of the monks replied meekly. “We offered no ill intent and merely explained your desire for peace, and the bids came of their own free will.”

These ornately plumed birds resemble toucans with very relaxed expressions and vibrant plumage. A gift from the Lords of Serenity to bring peace and calm to the world. Anyone within 30′ of one of these birds must make a save versus spells to act aggressively against another. Words and mockery can be exchanged, but no physical violence can be acted out by those who fail their saving throw. If four or more of these birds are singing merrily together the save versus magic must be made at -2. These birds are hated among warlike people and many monster races who despise falling under the magical spell of the Lords of Serenity.

    I can definitely see warlike beings hating these birds. I like that they’re at least semi-intelligent.

      Thanks David! This is another of those posts I was very unsure of when I released it and I am glad that it was well received.

    I love it. I think I might convert these over to Savage Worlds for the game I’m planning. I can see these caught for a booming trade.

      Thank you for the comment! Please let me know how it goes! I am always interested in knowing what happens with something I throw out there, regardless of system.
