Animal Mutations of the Flesh Forest

The Flesh Forest is an area within the Great Desh that has been mutated and changed by the wicked sorceries of Cornelius the Harvester.  In addition to the horrors of that place, there are plenty of "normal" animals that have fallen prey to his arcane foolishness.

Random Critter Mutations

  1. Another pair of fully functional limbs covered in thick black bristles
  2. A pair of external lungs that inflate and deflate and wheeze and are covered in mucus
  3. Locomotive means replaced with spliced bio-mechanical treads
  4. Skin is translucent and toxic to the touch
  5. Head is a floppy human-like hand of absurd proportions
  6. Mouth opens to a series of intricate knives and cutting tools
  7. Instead of eyes cogs that glow with an unearthly light
  8. Numerous "mouths" that cry and whine and leak thick white goo
  9. Parts in the wrong places - heads and legs swapped, multiple tails
  10. Human face stretched over whatever skull or structure is available - the squirrels are the worst

With sorcerous mutation comes mental aberration as well...

  1. Try to eat things they are not meant to eat (won't work well in the long run)
  2. Burrowing and climbing for creatures that would not do such a thing (the palm-faced tree deer)
  3. Highly aggressive nature for docile creatures, some even suicidal
  4. Extreme lethargy and gluttony
  5. Repetitive OCD-style actions that do not mesh with normal behavior
  6. Attempts to communicate that involve vomiting and defecating constantly
