One night while playing a D&D pirate game, our characters discovered this strange creature sitting in the cage of a mad wizard inquisitor. It is a parrat: half parrot, half rat. We asked the DM "why . . . " He said "If you can have owlbears, why not?" Also, like a parrot, this creature can talk. This is what it says "Polly want a cracker . . . Please don't kill me, please don't kill me . . . Oh, gods, why won't you let me die!"
