    Over on the Ninth Age, there is a different homebrew ratman army book brewing: Vermin Anteaters.

    As a homage to that intuitive image of bipedal anteater-men, here's an African cousin of the anteater family, an aardvark. I hope there's space enough for all manner of mammals-turned-humanoids in this shunned horde of mound-dwellers and anteaters? Dress from Dogon ceremonial warrior attire (you gotta love how less-is-more didn't count back in the day when these styles were developed). Being fantasy, the below concept takes the over-the-top step of turning ceremonial stiltwalking into a tool used by anteater monster hunters, for you need to reach high to slay those big beasties:

    That describes my reaction to most of @Karak Norn Clansman 's posts quite well.

    We should devote a thread of this forum as a museum of the collection of oddities that @Karak Norn Clansman has dug up from across various universes. ;)

    The story with the self-mutilating guy (who even cut his own head off) and his followers still gives me nightmares. :D

    And I also remember a tutorial how to make a flayed man or something. I think that was also you...

    But this is on the level, right?

    Odd Taphrian(?) Feral Orc concept. Since fantasy so often is about taking real life inspiration and run with it one step further, you know this is destined to happen with Orcs (if their reproduction is flesh not fungus). Phallic sheath based on those of e.g. Zulu, Somba and distant Papuan koteka gourds. Made into stone-tipped spear.

    Oh yeah, kinda NSFW but Orcs would definitely do that kind of thing if they had those parts.
