“My name is the Wombax, a friend of the plants. Be good to nature, or I’ll crush you like ants.”
The legendary guardian of Realmgard’s largest and most ancient forest, the Wombax is an equally-ancient Bear-Deer-Man-Ogre … thing of great power said to speak only in rhymes.
Despite his reputation as the fearsome, heavy-handed guardian of the forest and his general elusiveness, the Wombax is, in fact, quite amenable to visitors and will only ever resort to force after giving fair warning.
In addition to his role as the guardian of the forest, the Wombax is also known to teach the peoples of Realmgard how to co-exist with nature and to help these peoples gain what they need from the forest. However, he will visit a terrible vengeance upon anyone foolish enough to attempt to exploit the forest and its resources. Many stories about the Wombax mention the large club he carries for this very purpose.
