Locks, Stocks and 2 Smoking Wands
With the Joining, many new races and breeds were created. Many also died out during the Great Storm, but some also began to breed true and established themselves in the circle of life. Rarer still are those creatures that need not breed – simply are. Legendary creatures are less a race or breed and more a force of nature. To face and defeat a legendary creature is an achievement on Urth. And like most achievements, it comes with a boon.
A defeated Legendary Creature releases its essence in a vaporous form. Those who bathe in the essence can be granted powers or traits of the Legendary Creature. They are also marked with a strange tattoo that seems to follow the chi lines, running from the left hand across the back and to the right hand. It is said that to complete this sequence itself may grant another boon, and as such many adventurers actively seek out these legends to gain their power.
