Of Birds and Swords
One of my favourite types of creatures are bird warriors. I have a bird soldier Magic deck that I love playing, just to look at the cards and imagine all the stories the creatures would be a part of. Needless to say, the D&D Kenku were an instant attraction to me as a boy discovering fantasy creatures. And, look, I even gave him a tassle on his cloak. That is detail I am fond of. I think it stems from 'The Hobbit'. Oh, and speaking of that, what happened to the cloak thing in the movie? Big mistake, Mr. Jackson. Big mistake.
