Design/name an npc critter/mythical creature corner!

So yes, enter ye to the corner of designing the critters of the Paragon realm. Will they be accepted? Only @TheWizard may speak to this tale. Same rules as the Design a weapon corner, try to be specific as possible. Images welcome for the artistic types. And no stealing images.

    Name: The Wizard
    Description: A being who claims that he is mysterious and mystical but truthfully, he's just somebody's father or grandfather who plays D&D on weekends as a DM. And does an okay job at it.
    Effect: Has a 0.1% chance to cast SMITE! instead of basic attacking, instantly winning the fight and returning back to the Inn with only 1 gold and a potion. Because Dice Rolls.

    I've always been partial to lizard men.

    (psst, we're working on some lizardy dudes, but they'll have a twist!)

    Also, I like that Effect. Borrowing (or stealing from NPCs) is neat...

    Alright, time for some ideas for what I'd like to call the 'rare grinds' of Emberbark. I'd say each of these dudes idealistically have a very low encounter rate so encountering them makes their effect noteworthy.

And the Scale can be made into a legendary piece of mythical, one of a kind GTA/A(Golden Truffle Armor/Golden Truffle Accessory) or, can be forged into a current non weapon piece of gear(GTA/A included) For great potential Enchantments.


    Thoughts on this as a grind-able potential enemy for the grinders this game will probably get?? Essentially, It's a secret enemy anyway due to need a skill in specifically made for fighting Truffles in order to fighting the Truffleshaman. That and Truffleshaman will have a low encounter rate also I thinks.

    Feedback on risk/reward, rarity, adorableness, etc?
