The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
This legendary creature is said to roam the marshlands that lie
between the dark, murky waters of Barrow Loch and the vast expanse
of moorland that surrounds the city of Tryndmoor.
Descriptions of this beast vary, but most of those who have reportedly
sighted it agree that it appears to be a troll-sized, two-legged
creature, with bulbous yellow eyes and large gill slits on the side of
its wide neck. Its head is said to be covered with small, sharp, thorn-like
protrusions, and both its feet and hands are said to be webbed.
The stories that surround this semi-mythical creature suggest that it
lives in the murky deep of Barrow Loch, and that it prowls into the inland
marshes and roams the moor at night in search of prey.
The Thorn-Gill, as it is known to the locals, has been blamed for many unexplained
disappearances over the years.
