Weekly What the Heck

Welcome to the fifth installment of my regular feature here at the Near TPK. With continuing apologies to one of my favorite blogs, the Daily WTF, I present... The Weekly What The Heck.

Each Saturday at 10 AM Central Time I'll post one of Jen's drawings of some kind of whacked-out creature, and ask my readers: "What the heck IS that?"

I hope my readers will approach the challenge in the spirit of "Yes, and ..." - building on previous responses so everyone's ideas can be used in the final writeup. Comments are now closed on last week's entry, and I hope to have the final writeup posted tonight. Comments will be accepted on this week's entry until I post next week's entry.

So... What the heck is that? What should it do? What is it carrying?

He carries the Leaf of Despair...little is known of the Leaf's properties, but one thing is certain...

Everyone who has ever encountered the Leaf has been stricken with Despair!...

It's a Treefling!

He made a pact with the immortal trees. Unlike Tieflings, the pact turned out pretty okay, and he's a rather chummy fellow unless you annoy him.

The treefling and his Leaf of Despair... :D

I swear, the Weekly What the Heck makes my blog worth blogging...

He does seem like quite a treant-chant fellow.

He's roughly six inches tall.

Blessed with horns not only on their heads, Treeflings typically have horns on their chins, horns as their fingers, and some even have horns as feet!

They are quite charismatic, due to their excessive hornyness, and are excellent climbers who often make their nests (and lay their eggs) in the highest trees of the forest.

I am so glad that someone noticed all of the horns on this overly horny fey... Satyrs would be so jealous. :)
