Dysnomia's  wildlife

"Humanoid live forms are far from the only thing populating the sand seas. Life flourishes from the simple barnacles to Legendary beasts. But traveler, you best be on your guard, most of the creatures you will find, need to regain magical energy by consuming an other living beings core, therefore may be hostile to you.

Here we log currently known creatures. You will find in these pages information on the different beasts, where they live and what they do. There is also list of the effects a core may have once scavenged and souled on your Ship, it's Cannons, your Armour or Weapons."

cores and souling

Life forms on Dysnomia only need magical energy to stay alive, this live-giving substance is concentrated in a Core, a small stone like construct found within the individual and acts like a beating heart.

If you are lucky, Cores can be collected of dead bodies. They can be consumed by an other life form, or used as a power source for equipment and ships. 

Inserting a core into a piece of equipement is called Souling, with this process equipement can gain the abilities of the lifeform the core belonged to:

"If you are lucky, slaying your assailants will grant you an unimpaired creature core, the concentrated life force of the beast. This will be useful as you can power your equipment by Souling the weapons, armors and ships in your possession. 

Artisans and hunters can peform this act for you in their forges and workshops. The newly Souled equipment will gain some of the specifics of the said creature. For example, giving you access to the same magic the monster just used on you. Like enchanting your boots the jumper higher. (As long as the gear you Souled is on your person). 

Core Souling is not yet perfected and we can not extract the maximum potential out of every core. Therefore cores only receives 3 to 4 of the possible bonuses listed in this book. (site)

Of course the power of the bonuses are proportional to the power of the Monster the core once belonged to.

Because of this a Destroyer ship Souled with a mighty Sand Dragon’s core will out perform a Battleship souled with a mere Barnacle core. In hull resistance, energy generation, ship abilities, etc..."
