g33k Posted November 30, 2016 Report Share Posted November 30, 2016 So, there are "Giant Otters" in the Zola Fel. Are they a sentient, tool-using species/culture? Are they the same as (or related to) the "Lutrai" of Maniria/Wenelia (and if so, is it specified that there IS or that there IS NOT any communication/interchange between the populations?) ? Or is the Zola Fel species just "semi-intelligent"? ... or? === Also, physically: is the real-world cognate for Glorantha's intelligent otters specified? In the real world, the "Sea Otter" (of the Pacific Northwest coast of N.America) is oceanic, and heavier; the "Giant Otter" (of Amazonia, roughly) is a fresh-water species, longer but slightly lighter (n.b. historically, this species was even larger than today, but it's presumed that human hunting-pressure has notably reduced the largest sizes). In the event that it isn't specified, I think I may make both into different "Clans" of Lutrai... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
