Senet beasts are ageless creatures that wander the world of Kasslyne in a variety of wondrous forms. Legend has it that these creatures precede the khert, having been created first, and are not bound by the same natural laws that bind the rest of the world. Standing apart from their less fortunate living kin, senet beasts do not and cannot age, nor do they have a place in a food chain, nor are they subject to disease. Many senet beasts can perform feats that are for all intents and purposes "miraculous" as they fly in the face of what natural law finds permissible.

Because they preceded the khert, senet beasts possess their own separate and unique khert fields, making them worlds unto themselves. This separate nature suffuses their flesh, making them natural producers of various First Materials.

Senet beasts cannot reproduce but violent trauma can kill them as easily as any other creature. As such there are fewer and fewer of them all the time, and more species extinct than there are extant.

Wandering Roots

These docile creatures, now extinct, were a sort of living plant as large as small hills. They spent their days foraging for dead animals which they would swallow and store in an inner chamber where decomposition could feed the creature's roots. Wandering roots were acutely empathetic, and in ancient times humans would seek them out to act as judges. Able to sense a suspect's guilt or innocence, the wandering root would devour the evil man and ignore the innocent.

Spindleworms (First Silkworms)

Efheby (Nagas)

Salt Lizard

Known only through legend and thought to be extinct, Salt Lizards were enormous sentient reptiles that lived in the subterranean coastal caverns of western Cresce and Alderode. Worshiped as gods by the Two-toes, salt lizards lived in darkness on a diet of seaweed and sea water. Their bodies were able to remove excess salt from their food and excrete it into refined, caked, scaled armour. Excess salt was collected by the Two-toes who used it to preserve fish and craft medicine.
