The Ahyahs are my twist on the cyclops. They are traders, scavengers, and necromancers. They are normally seen rummaging through garbage looking for potion ingredients. instead of using a cauldron to mix the potions they need for necromancy, they use their stomachs as beakers. when their bellies are completely burned away they shove a study pot for mixing into the empty cavity. Within this world trading is a heavy theme. it is natural for a wood creature to trade their dead as a natural resource to a stone creature. the ahyahs and other dark beings use the dead they receive from trading in very unorthodox ways.. they are very secretive and this makes the natural beasts and humans very uneasy.

noodled away at this in the art jam tonight. Plumpkins run wild in the world. They have no interest in being planted. As they grow they become fascinated with the sun and sharp objects. Eventually their bark is infested with bugs that shape their bark into armor for Tornmight. As a Tornmight, the creature begins to experiment with magic. They eventually learn a spell that simulates sunlight. With this spell they grow out their bark like flesh into intricate shapes for their new armor. The most well crafted Foak become an inspiration and admired by the rest of the tribe. As the best magic wielders and crafters, the Foaks with the most beautiful armor become candidates for tribe chieftan. The wisest spellcrafters are able to learn how to create petrified pistols that use the bark eating bugs as ammo and the sun light spell to propel them. its like science and shit :p
