Porloch
Rarity: Common
Location: Scattered across Alysi and Fa’ar.
Behavior: They roam around in clumps, eating any organic matter they find, and travelling across the plane using reality blips, which they can detect.
Danger Level: Low
Strengths: Can eat their own body-weight in a minute, can detect the reality warps present in Fa’ar and use them to travel. Platinum weaponry’s benefits do not apply when facing them.
Weaknesses: Move rather slowly, as they need to inch their way towards their prey with their tentacles. Also small, and, given that they have no natural protections, can be crushed rather easily. Oldstone weaponry is highly effective against them, and they will shy away from it, or any quantities of the material.

Description
Porlochs, unlike their much scarier cousin, the Grymloch, are small, crab to cat sized purple abominations, and the most common of Fa’ars inhabitants. Instead of even remotely resembling anything “normal”, they are simply a small, squirming mass of tentacles with mouths, slowly hauling themselves across the landscape with said tentacles. These tentacles also form the Porloch’s primary method of communication with the outside world, the pores located on them being used to smell and detect vibrations. The creature has also somehow adapted to Fa’ar’s shifting nature, and packs of them (although perhaps the term clump is more suitable, as the Porlochs do not work together) will often use the blips in reality that occur on Fa’ar to traverse great distances, and thus bring themselves closer to the food they always crave. The Porloch uses their tentacles to sense these blips, the tentacles turning bright red when one was about to happen, and an observer could notice all of the Porlochs in an area converging on one spot, where the blip would occur. This characteristic makes captured Porlochs a necessity for navigating Fa’ar unscathed. Porlochs do not suffer from the effects of shifting.

The Porloch is omnivorous, and can and will consume any type of organic matter placed before it, whether it be some grass or an unlucky traveller’s hand. Porlochs consume quickly, and can eat something the size of their own body in about a minute. They do not appear to be intelligent, and seem to exist purely to consume, as the creatures do not mate, and appear to warp into reality out of nothingness.
