Animal > Domestic > Goats and Sheep > Tricol Goat

The Tricol Goat, believed to the result of a Ximaxian Mage's spell gone wrong, is a small animal found exclusively in the surrounds of Ximax City located on the Xaramon Peninsula in the Kingdom of Santharia. Noted for it short stature, three coloured coat, and its odious personal habits, the Tricol goat is used by the members of the Boyzinna Fellowship as a mascot. In recent times, this friendly creature has been prized by artists for its horns which can be used in paints as pigments, especially if the artists are able to handle the stench coming from these animals.

Appearance
Three combos, three colours each
Red/Blue/Purple - young, pre reproduction age
Blue/Yellow/Green - mature, during reproduction age
or
Yellow/Red/Orange - elderly, post reproduction age

Much smaller/lighter than other goats

Special Abilities
As with other goats, the Tricol Goat is willing to eat any kind of plant. However, while the diet of other goats is restricted to plants, the Tricol Goat has a wider dietary range including

Territory
Area surrounding Ximax City

Habitat/Behavior
Herd animals, docile, friendly, though their stench/habits drive others away.

Diet
Any plant material they can reach. Go into specifics by looking at herbarium for the area chosen. Something special that they eat as well - look at minerals

Mating
Mating typically takes place in autumn (month) with live births in spring (month).

Polygamous relationships, raising young is social affair for whole herd

Myth/Lore/Origin
According to the Volkek Oshran Mage, Phlegah Spirin, the Tricol Goat was created by a magic spell gone awry. Exactly what the spell was or who was casting the spell is unknown as the orc mage won't tell this author. What is known is that the treatise of the early <appropriate century>, titled Of Animals and Their Environs by <First> <Last> makes no mention of them living in Ximax peninsula.

Usages
The Tanners' Guild of Ximax City uses the skin of these animals in their process of forming leather from the hides of dead animals, particularly in the leather neck ties that are worn by the members of the Boyzinna Fellowship.

Artists who do not have delicate senses or who may well be suffering from a lack of taste/smell have been known to use the horns of these animals

Anything Else (Optional)
Can you think of any details to make this even better?

An idea that's been perculating in my brain. I'm using this to see if I still have what it takes. If it isn't finished by me in six weeks, I probably don't.

I still have to go through the compendium for details to use in the entry. I can't believe just how much I've forgotten the last year. :)

I'm sorry, I've been pretty well out of action since March 4. My back's been very sore and virtually any movement (including breathing/typing) caused pain to go through my body. I've been miserable as a result. I haven't forgotten my comments here though, and still aim to get it by the end of next month.

I'm also thinking about changing these guys somewhat, into little flying goats, but still with the odious habits, tri coloured skin and so forth.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
