FnS 39

Hobby Wyrd

Explorers tell the tale of a mysterious creature that lives deep in the forests, way way beyond the edges of Malifaux City and the faintest ideas of civilization. Its presence is said to be heralded by the sounds of the small critters that follow it - little paws shuffling, birds singing, leaves whispering, branches cracking like bone...

Some rare accounts of its presence are even more surreal.

Peg-Leg James from the fur shop once told about one of his hunts a few days past the Solstice, when the temperatures were rising and animals were leaving their shelters from the winter. He talked about seeing something moving among the trees, vaguely humanoid but much much taller. Where before there was only cold and dead ground, grass and flowers sprouted from the soil as its feet landed with heavy thuds. Where the terrain was softer and its feet sank deeper, springs of crystalline water started to flow to form pools and small rivers. It was as if this creature's march was bringing the spring back to the earth, and with it came life.

If you choose to believe this tale, I would advise you to stay away from the woods when the autumn festivals are over, all the fruits have been picked and the leaves have turned brown and fallen. If that creature is really able to bring the woods back to life for spring, I would hate to know what does when the winter is here...

This piece is spectacular. You've given your Emissary great movement with the basing, tied everything in wonderfully into the nature theme. I love that the claws look like beaver teeth, it feels very fitting. (maybe you intended something else with that colouring, but the Canadian in me sees beaver teeth).
