Troll--This brutish creature is the bane of all travellers. Many tales relate
how trolls hide beneath bridges in order to terrorize and prey upon all those
who would cross it. The wise traveller would do well to exercise caution when
crossing any bridge, especially those one may come across in the wilderness,
far from the security of a city.
Unicorn--Fanciful stories of these creatures abound in rural areas. The
unicorn appears as a splendid young white stallion with a single great horn
rising from its head. Legends speak of how only those who are truly virtuous
may approach a unicorn. Unicorn sightings are rare--so rare in fact that most
serious scholars deny their existence.
Wisp--These mysterious floating lights have been a puzzlement to many an
adventurer. They seem capable of inflicting only slight physical damage, but
they also seem impervious from physical harm themselves. It has been said
that these strange creatures are very knowledgeable and that they come from a
world other than our own.
Wolf--This plains and forest hunter has long had the greatly undeserved
reputation of a vicious predator. While wolfpacks do thin the weak and the
sick from herds of wild animals, and while farmers must occasionally be wary
of their curiosity, there is little to support the notion that these animals
are bloodthirsty man-eaters.
