1 A shark will eat mostly fish and not eat birds however to a shark their is no difference between a fish and a bird in water, it's all food :)

2 There are above water caves where the white bear lives so bellow water ones would exist too. Giant Krakens like to live in bellow water caves. The icelands are relatively close to the sea.

The white bear is large enough that it could prey on isolated individuals loners or ones that stray too far from the heard. It also hunts by smell so conflicts would occur when they are hunting the same prey.

Caracals are about the same size thus could put up a good fight and with their fearless atitude would clash with them.

The ice dragon could mistake icesnouts for fish when they're swimming.

The Icelands would have lots of under water caves were krakens would hide.

Frost Dragons could prey on icesnouts.

What about risks of them getting preyed on from dragons and from large aquatic animals particularly when swimming?

I like the idea of them being used for riding beasts but how does the rider keep his butt from getting to cold while the icesnout gets to warm?

Did some editing to clarify somethings and tie them in with the Ter'ei'Vikh better.  Also started a diet section.

Use of tentacle secretions might be expanded depending on Ter'ei'Vikh occupations and their are a few parts that are short waiting comments before I continue. :)

Vesk has a point about how some researchers might exaggerate size. Wouldn't some people exaggerate speed as well  especially someone who barley escaped with their lives. Just imagine your calvary unit is running from these and you have an over estimate of your own horses speed anyways you might claim they can cover several dashes in a second. I know a dash a second is over 200mph but a rumored maximum speed would tend to be far greater then actual maximum speed.

Their is no mention of trees in the entry their was before I thought, Why is'nt it there any more? this is a cat in a forest shouldn't it climb trees and maybe attack things from them.
36  Santharian World Development / The Santharian Bestiary / Re: Fujin-the rider mount of the Cavalry of Krath on: 02 September 2007, 17:47:41
They are at maximum, with their tail outstretched, between 4 to 5 peds long

Its already been established in the gopag entry they are larger then zyloths

and they are believed to weigh around 2 pyges.

 I like the idea of them being fairly light for their size though it would give them much greater speed and jumping ability compared to other animals. It can still have massive bones and muscles just make them weigh less some how.

The male Fujin is believed to be capable of great speed and is rumored to be able to cover a dash in five seconds.

I know this is about 45 mph but for a rumored maximum speed this is slow. Some people would have a tendency to exaggerate the speed of these animals especially when they saw them running away from them .
Also an American quarter horse can go 55 for a short sprint and cheetahs 70

If you decide to model this animals muscoskeletal structure after a chettah it would be faster then a chettah. I could do some calculations with froude numbers to fihure out how much faster if you are interested.

You don't mention trees in your entry I named them after a Japanese wind god because I imagined them jumping swiftly from tree to trree hunting their prey from trees and able to run thru the trees over top oif horses then surrounding them rather then attacking from one direction.

Speaking from a strictly botanically view a raspberry is several little fruits stuck together to make a big fruit called a compound fruit a botanist with a sharp knife could dissected and examine a raspberry flower and determine its basic structure without use of magnification here is a picture of a raspberry in cross section
38  Santharian World Development / Magic in the Lands of Caelereth / Re: Earth School -- is any process being done here? on: 21 August 2007, 17:53:46
All 4 elemental schools would have necromancy but they would all look at it different.

Fire Necromancer
the inner fire of any life must be maintained or it will die to raise the dead you need to reignite the fire.

Earth Necromancy
has the philosophy of "Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return" (Genesis 3:19) ( I know thats out of context and Caelereth doesn't have bibles)

Water Necromancy
Each life form is supposed to have a certain amount of water cár’áll in it. If you reastablish the proper amount you will raise the dead. For example; If you water a plant that appears dead it will become green again, getting the water out of someones lungs so they don't drowned.

Air Necromancy
Air cár’áll must be in a constant state of motion maintaining a dynamic equilibrium. If this process is broken, as happens in suffocation, death occurs. They would have spells that move air in and out of the mouth and nose to reestablish a state of motion and dynamic equilibrium.

I've only skimmed this so I don't have many comments the Fujin is menitoned in the  Gopag entry as an example of prey for the giant gopag.

It would make since if it hid in grasses and bushes as well as in trees too.

Miraran Tehuriden is curently working on Ter'ei'Vikh If you would like to develop something related to them look over the entry on the Drifting Woods then give Miraran a heads up about your idea I would suggest something simple for your first entry such as a plant animal or a weapon.
41  Organization and General Discussions / General Santharian Discussions / Re: Question about Races on: 16 August 2007, 14:48:22
After a quick search I found 17 entries mentioning faeries so you wouldn't be creating a new race so it would be similar to doing an entry on a town that has bean mentioned several times. But maybe a bit harder to do  ;)
42  Organization and General Discussions / General Santharian Discussions / Re: Tradewinds Ahoy! on: 15 August 2007, 13:51:19
Parda has a major navel port so its major imports would be what it needs to build ships mostly wood and iron from the Zeiphyrian Forests as well as some metal from Kor Donion
43  Santharian World Development / Magic in the Lands of Caelereth / Re: Demoralize, Fire magic Level 2 on: 14 August 2007, 11:59:38
How about this spell being used on the enemy on particular spot in the enemies lines where you intend to break thru.

How about people assigned to protect these mages if your battle strategy is dependent on them then you can't risk one lucky enemy archer would cause you to loose.
44  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: Question about developing a new type of crossbow on: 12 August 2007, 18:00:51
I would say go ahead from the pictures I've looked at it seems to be just a small crossbow with a pistol grip. It would be reasonable for any type of weapon we have to have various types of handles.

The Chinese had pistol grips in the second century BC so I don't think they'd be out of place in an ancient world.  :)
45  Santharian World Development / Magic in the Lands of Caelereth / Re: Quick Clarification Requested on: 10 August 2007, 15:41:53
I'd say yes other wise if object didn't contain their own car'all they couldn't be used for magic.

Yes to the 2nd one too otherwise
ice enchantment
wouldn't work.
