The rouse is a creature of the Naiikan Sands mostly, on the continent of Alrene. It has a thick skin which is usually black or a gray-blue. The rouse is carnivorous and only eats small creatures. It needs very little food to survive and even less water. The rouse stands roughly five and a half feet at the shoulder and has a body that is nearly twelve feet long. The rouse burrows itself in the sand where it lays eggs once in its life. This creature was created by myself and a friend for the Skuld Campaign Setting.
