The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
Long thought to be a creature of myth, the legendary stickleg
has been spotted with increasing frequency across the wilds of
the North Broadlands .
The legs and arms of these strange two-legged woodland beings resemble
long, thin sticks, though they are not actually made of wood. The thick,
spiny exoskeleton that covers their soft flesh resembles the bark of
Sticklegs have a broad, shelled torso that matches their arms and legs.
The heads of these creatures have black, fly-like eyes that protrude from
the top of their nearly-flat skulls. A thick shell, much like that which
covers their torso, protect their heads.
The intelligence of these beings has never been determined, but they often
operate in large bands, and have been known to attack trolls and ogres, overpowering
such sizable foes with sheer numbers.
Sticklegs attack using the sharpened tips of their three-fingered hands.
In woodland settings, these beings move in near-total silence, and use this
to their advantage when stalking their prey. They make no audible sounds and some
have speculated that they communicate telepathically.
