Are Durulz mammals ? I'm asking because of the breast armour the duck is wearing.

I jokingly intimated this on the Facebook page. We've had:

DO DUCKS LAY EGGS?

and

DO DUCKS HAVE TEETH?

Now we prepare ourselves for:

DO DUCKS HAVE BOOBS?

The Trolls seemed to have lost some, too. I can't wait to see the HeroQuest where the Ducks lifted and separated them from the Trolls. 😉

Like with the Aldryami, I think it depends on their Man/Beast rune balance.

I'll take your word on it. Never been in a position with aTroll where I could find out for myself. My relationships will Trolls have most been the parry and dodge kind.

Much like the aldryami, female Uz in particular have a very wide range of physical appearance, or would if they didn't shun light so strongly and Blind or Extinguish or otherwise interfere with anyone trying to get a "good look" at them. Trying to nail down exactly what someone with a much higher Darkness than Man rune "looks like" is tricky at best. 

In general, I think that more magically powerful Uz tend towards extra mammalia. It is unclear weather magical prowess allows them to form themselves to be more "uzuz-like" or if the physical characteristics naturally correspond to increased magical potential.

The big duck secret is that they are actually platypus - therefore egg laying mammals 😁

Then they should get poison spur attacks!  Actually fairly nasty poison.

Finally we get an answer to the "do ducks have teeth?" question: they have fangs!

Nah, they are  Hobbits in duck suits. They just have to dress up to avoid any legal entanglements with the Tolkien estate. If you look closely, you can spot the eyes and zipper.

...  When can I buy this? 

"PDF next month" sez Chosium.  No specific ETA for the deadtree.

Looks like the Sky Bull is ready to come down and stomp on the unsuspecting walktapus.

Very encouraging to see the bestiary coming out so soon, I expected a 6 month wait between books.

Not at all, the intent was that the first 3 critical books at least come out pretty quickly.

Way back in 1996 Tales of the Reaching Moon #14 promised further investigation, in its special subscriber cover:

The Bestiary will be out (in PDF) next month, and the GM Pack (in PDF) the month after that.

We will have print copies of the RQG core rules at Gen Con.

Would that be #MeToooooo then?

No, just curiosity. 

 

But I do like the Baboon. The runes and clothing make them really look like an intelligent species as opposed to just primates.

And the GM Book? (Which I believe I'd different than the GM Pack?)
