Magnagrada are amphibious bear-sized creatures with 6 legs and 2 arms. Their thick, blubber-like skin ranges in color from light pink to grey. The circular mouth in the center of what they would call a face has 10 short, tentacle-like appendages. These tentacles, however are unable to perform any function but to communicate with other Magnagrada. To almost any other species, Magnagrada seem like ugly monsters in every aspect of their appearance.

Though their blubber makes them seem rather weak and helpless, it is the source of their outstanding resilience. Several inches thick, the blubber protects them from almost all conditions. It keeps them warm in the cold, and cool in the heat. Most importantly, however, is the blubber's role in protecting vital organs from damage, resulting in the difficulty found in killing a Magnagrada.

History[edit]

The true history of the Magnagrada race is currently unknown, however, Magnagrada claim that they are the result of a powerful Enlarge spell gone wrong. According to Magnagrada history, they were once tiny creatures, unable to be seen normally by larger peoples. After adjusting to a larger world, they adopted the name "Magnagrada" meaning "Great Walkers" for their size and many legs.

Society[edit]

Though Magnagrada are rare due to their somewhat recent jump into the title of "known race", they have earned a place for themselves as extremely durable people, capable of taking many blows in protection of others. It is said that Magnagrada live in a secret underwater city, under their high king,
