Ruled by a Hivelord(an alpha male), Kruthiks live and hunt together in packs. They dig tunnels underground that stay intact, so they can be used again. They hate light and live in underground caverns with their tunnels connected to them. Sometimes, they are trained by humanoid creatures that also live underground. They are intelligent but do not speak a language of words. To communicate they make clicking noises with their mouths and make motions with their spiked feet, like stomping, of shuffling the dirt.

These odd creatures look like a black puma with two spiked tentacles growing from its shoulders or back. These beasts have glowing green eyes and the ability to become invisible. They inhabit deep jungles and make it their "territory". Anything entering the territory will be pounced upon from a random direction, not knowing whats on them until the Displacer Beast attacks, causing it to be visible again. They are usually solitary creatures, but occasionally they will form packs with a packlord, the strongest one.

The Piasa is said to have the legs and face of a bear, green parrot wings, and a long scaly tail that can wrap around itself three times. A native American tribe has a legend of how the monster attacked villages. Then one day a brave chieftain named Ouatoga (EW-ah-to-gah)prayed to his gods and stood right in front of the Piasa's cliff where it could see him. The brave chieftain stood there as the Piasa came flying at him. Then, when the beast was in range, the chieftain's warriors leaped from the bushes nearby, shot arrows at it and killed it.

Elves are kind creatures. They live deep into the woods in small communities. They are like Humans, only they have pointed ears, and are taller with blond hair. They are very skilled sword wielders, using fine sharp rapiers. But their weapon of choice is the bow. Since they have excellent vision, they make fine archers, and often never miss their target. Elves are constantly fighting Goblins and Orcs, and trying to protect nature.

The Cyclops were the sons of the mother earth and the father sky. The sky thought they were so ugly that he shut them in an underground cave. Cyclops had one large eye in the middle of their bald head and stood over eight feet tall. They were excellent blacksmiths, and they built a forge in their cave and began smithing. The Greeks said that you could see the smoke coming out of mountains sometimes. Later, the Cyclops emerged from their cave and colonized a small island and became goat shepherds. Odysseus, who was a home coming warrior, came to the island but was captured. He managed to escape by blinding a Cyclops then disguising himself and his companions as sheep to get to their boat.
Lizardmen are humanoid reptiles, living in old castle ruins or other deserted buildings made by Humans. They are not really good or evil, more neutral, and they will help whatever cause pays more. Lizardmen eat bugs, and surprisingly they live off of them. They are a tribal race, and often wear little clothes, and ancient gold jewelry. They have no need for armor because of their tough flexible skin. Their weapons include spears, swords, and poison arrows.

Pegasus is a pure white horse with swan-like wings. Its wingspan can reach up to 25 feet. It eats grass. It may be trained as a mount, and will allow its rider to put their load on itself like a normal horse.But a Pegasus is much smarter than a normal horse, and will only allow itself to be trained by a good person or creature. A Pegasus helped a hero defeat Chimera. The hero shot the Chimera with a bow while Pegasus kept him away from the Chimera's fire breath. The hero used a golden bridle to help tame Pegasus.
