"Of course they're cute. That's how it starts. 'Oh look,
Karser, how adorable' then you wake up and half your gold's
been stashed around the campsite and the precious little bastard's
nowhere to be found. So no, you can't keep it."
orm is about the size of a small cat, with a hide that shimmers
and swirls with color that usually reflects the creature’s
mood. Their wings are reminiscent of those of a dragon fly,
though smooth instead of veined. Four whirling eyes convey
the unmistakable sense of a creature that is utterly innocent.

A character knows the following information with a successful
Arcana DC 15: Distant relatives
of dragons, mousin orms are tiny, curious, and above all friendly
creatures native to Chordin and Vini Tresolm.
Arcana DC 20: Mousin orms
are akin to highly intelligent magpies, flitching shiny objects
to make their nests. Mousin orms prefer to steal from stealth
and avoid conflict entirely, but they will fight to aide and
protect mates or owners, using their shifting colors to confound
enemies long enough for a get away. Raykin orms live in Vini
Tresolm and tend to herd giant bats to pollinate the fruit
trees they favor for food.
Arcana DC 25: The eggs of
a mousin orm are nearly identical to gemstones and their nesting
patter is designed to trick intelligent humanoids into taking
them, thus moving the young to new territories. Orm hatchlings
have a chance to impress upon the creature that hatches it.
Raykin orms form an explosive chemical in their gullet called
chell bullets for the unique sound it makes when it explodes.
Arcana DC 30: Raykin orms
are non-carnivorous, but do enjoy ‘playing’ with
unfortunate intelligent creatures it finds in its territory.
They rarely attempt to kill, but accidents do happen.
