My Tékumel Bestiary (2): the Nshé and the Hlu'ún

A Nshé, in spherical form.

The Nshé is a sorcerous creation, able to assume a variety of forms. Shown above is its spherical form, one ideal for engulfing its prey. It is an oversized marble called a "soap bubble" which I found in a local game store for about $2 CDN.

I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for other transparent or translucent figures: seven foot tall humanoids, serpents and flat sheets are mentioned as alternative forms, though I am sure the list is more extensive than that.

A Hlu'ún.

A Pathfinder Miniature Mothman makes a perfect Hlu'ún, at least in my opinion anyway. I've been able to find them on ebay at reasonable prices, and one doesn't need that many anyway.

  2. Also the "Water Weird"...
