The Steam-Powered City
Spriggans are creatures which heavily resemble trees, and they are usually found in northern snowy regions. They "plant" their feet into the ground and disguise themselves as trees to hunt prey, staying completely motionless until something wanders by, be it a stray creature or otherwise. In their mobile form, they have bright blue eyes, thin and wiry limbs, long claw-like hands and thick feet with roots sprouting out in all directions. Spriggans are mostly covered in tree bark, which varies between them. Spriggans are sometimes worshipped by the nomadic Av'Khadaani tribes, being seen as symbols of the goddess of nature. They usually eat rabbits or small deer, but they will attack anyone who wanders by, be it a human or elf or anything else, and some report that packs of them have taken down ashkanas or even ghothork.
