Description(s)

Descriptions are example(s) from a single individual. Variations may be numerous, and dependent upon species, gender, age, location, and other variables.

Vermine (Hublands and Uberwald)

Vermine are a distant, and somewhat more intelligent, cousin of lemmings. Their beautifully soft black and white fur is highly sought after by trappers and furriers, so they've been forced to evolve a bit of common sense. They meet their instinctive needs halfway, and generally content themselves with falling over small pebbles and into shallow puddles.

  • Alignment: Neutral

Vermine (Lower Ramtops)

The soft black and white fur of the vermine is highly valued by trappers and those oddly misguided wealthy city folks who have strange notions about style. Only the extremely snobbish can afford to wear the skin of rodents. Well, them, and the vermine themselves, who also value their skin greatly and do the best they can to hang on to it. The fashion world can go jump off a cliff.

  • Alignment: Details needed.

Uses

  • No special uses

Special Notes

  • The vermine is not an actual round-world critter, but likely a play on ermine (which is a real animal, often used for its fur).
