These are both based on real animals spotted on a family trip to the zoo.
Format
Entry Name (Translation)
(Real Animal)
Brief Overview

Carmiés (Living Jewel)
(Tin Foil beetle, Jewel Scarab)
A small beetle covered in a shiny, lusurous shell, it is found mainly on the outskirts of deserts and near oasis. Small colonys can be found inside the desert itself, but this is a rare occurance. The Carmiés retains its color after death, allowing for Desert natives and others to make beautiful jewlery from it.

Armored Scoot
(Armidillo)
A small, armoured rodent-like creature, the Armored Scoot is found inside deserts. It gets its name from the armored pates that serves as protection and the fact that these plates cover its legs, so that when it moves, it apears to be "scooting" as if on wheels.

Tell me what you think! And also tell me if you think 4 entrys and an almost approved CD is getting over my head! :)

I think both are workable concepts, you should check with Talia and Artemis whether it would fit inside the Rahaz Dath Desert or the deserts of Aeruillin respectively. If you can link it to a location specifically or perhaps to a tribe who makes use of the animal or perhaps take it as a symbol, you can create an interesting myth/lore section.

I'm not sure if I like the scooting part in the name, to me it sounds too much as if it features an engine ;-)

Ya, I should come up with a different name... but if youve ever seen an Armidillo moving, they look like they do have little engines! ;)

Yes, both ideas look fine to me. Just keep in mind about how they have adapted or how they fit the desert. What things allow them to not need as much water. And how do they get it. But from here it looks fine. In Nybelmar you could include them in the Zunith Desert.

Nsiki, sounds fine, both animals. Just check Vesk's entries, he has a beast similar to an armadillon , can't recall the name now, but it lives in the burning grass. Yours should be a bit different - or you say, this is a relative. I posted a pic of an armadillon as an example back then in the thread (I had been in a museum of natural science ;)  )

Actually, what I thought would be cool is if wepublished the compedium (in several volumes ;)  with a special discount to members of Santharia. It would attract a phenominal amount of attention to Santharia. It would be a fantasy writers encyclopedia, not to mention dream..... of course, we would run into financial problems... sigh.
