I'm currently working on a Trag specie entry. That is a specie of mammal that is supposed to have weak lightning ability (something like an electric eel but on the ground).
What is the situation with electricity? I mean how well and detailed should I make descriptions about its power? What I had in plan for Trags is a sort of ability like Static Bolt spell or Clap of Thunder.
It is supposed to collect static charge through its fur and store it in horns for short and relatively intense use.
So, the main question is the level of knowledge about electric phenomenons and the level of complexity I should use to describe this unique skills.

The concepts of shock and bolt are well known in the world, I'd say, since some Wind school spells call lightning effects. So by describing the creature as being able to gather shocking bolts or thunder bolts would be work, IMO. The actual word "electricity" may be too scientific/modern...

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.
