Snarkle Swamp

Snarkle Swamp
Image

Snarkle Swamp is a a swamp that is located deep in the Sweetwine Woods. It offers a wealth of resources to those who know how to navigate its depths. Fish make a ready food source as do some of the other denizens of the swamp. Plants offer a source of food as well, but many of them have more value as medicinal herbs than as food. Some of the plants and animals that make their homes in this swamp have alchemical uses as well.

This swamp is a thing of beauty. But it is filled with dangers as well. Hidden quicksand is certain death to the unwary. Some of the plants are poisonous, and many of the poisonous ones look deceptively like those that are edible or beneficial as herbs. And some of the denizens of the swamp are as likely to eat an unwary hunter as they are to be caught for a hunter's dinner.

Price: NA
Habitat: Swampy areas around Scalvoris
Lifespan and Development: In the wild, snarkles live for approximately ten arcs. But as a beloved pet, their lifespan can be doubled or even tripled due to the good care they are given. They are considered to be adolescents at two arcs of age, and adults at three arcs. At three arcs of age, females begin to lay three to five eggs a season. Most of these eggs are never fertilized, and can be used as a food source. Once the lingering chill of Cylus is completely gone (early to mid Ashan), mating season begins, and it lasts through the end of Ashan. Only during this time are any eggs laid fertilized. Snarkles mate for life, and in the wild, if one of a mated pair dies, the other will often pine itself to death unless the survivor is a female with young to raise. If this is the case, the female will take care of its young until they can care for themselves. They may pine themselves to death after their young can thrive on their own, or they may continue on in a solitary existence for the remainder of their lives. In very rare cases, a female may find another mate. Snarkles that are kept as pets will mourn the loss of their mate if they have one, but they will not pine themselves to death because their attachment to their owners is greater than that to their mates. They will however pine themselves to death if their owner dies or abandons them unless it is a female with young to raise, in which case they may become attached to another owner if presented with one who showers them with care and love while they are raising their young.

It takes sixty trials for the eggs to hatch, during which time the male will take care of his mate by bringing her food so she doesn't have to leave her eggs. Once the eggs hatch, the offspring will remain with their parents until they reach adulthood. Snarkle females with young to raise will continue to lay eggs each season, but none of them will be fertile.

Snakrles are fairly small creatures. Adults are the size of house cats while their young are the size of kittens when young and half grown kittens as adolecsents.
Diet: Plants, water plants, algae, and small fish.
Temperament: Snarkles are playful, affectionate, intelligent creatures.
Abilities: Their fur is water proof, and they are able to hold their breath for several bits. Their keen eyes can see through the murkiest swamp water, and their intelligence makes then hard to capture.
Weaknesses: Their lack of natural weapons makes them easy to kill if caught.

Nice - but again I don't think the Snarkles would be for sale?

Other than that - I'm happy with this - the only thing I'd say is that, if it's a source of food, etc - especially if it's alchemical reagents, this location might well be open to further dev pieces (flora and fauna).

That work for you?

Re: Snarkle Swamp

Well, they can be pets too so I did think they would be for sale originally. But now that you mention it, I like the idea of someone who wants one as a pet having to go get one for themselves. So I fixed it. And yes, if I get more ideas, I will definitely add flora and fauna to this location. :)
