The small bat-like thing tapped on the glass.
‘Koram, you shut the window again,’ commented Chalk.
‘Hey, I sleep by the window and it was cold, come on,’ replied the fighter as he walked over to the window and opened it up.
The small creature fluttered across the room and landed on the table that Chalk was sitting at.
‘Any news?’ the wizard asked.
The thing nodded.
‘Stork and his companions are two days behind us,’ it squeaked.
The wizard handed a silver ring to the creature.
‘And now we prepare a trap for those two idiots and their henchmen,’ Chalk said.
‘Why don’t we have henchmen?’ Koram asked.
‘Because Valance and his gambling always keep that luxury from us,’ replied Chalk.
‘I heard that!’ Valance shrieked from the other room.

These clever little monsters appear as one foot tall humanoid bats, complete with leathery wings, fur-covered bodies and long spindly forearms. Their mouths are filled with needle like teeth and their hands and feet end in sharp claws. Giqwon are not adverse to hiring themselves out as ‘temporary familiars’ to just about anyone for a proper reward, which depends on the amount of danger the creature will be putting itself in. This temporary situation can last for a few days, up to one week and requires the exchange of blood between the giqwon and the one who requires their services. The creature, once bound, will spy for its master, scout an area, deliver messages, etc. Once the time is up that particular individual and that giqwon cannot bond again, although the creature may still willingly serve the person. These creatures are intelligent and can write Common and speak with squeaky voices. Bands of these creatures often act as thieves and steal small trinkets and coins to add to their lair.
